Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

Promise?? Maybe it’s a language thing but to me Yeah, I think it's a language thing. I was using "promise" meaning "the quality of potential excellence." Like a "promising student." So you could reparse that sentence as: I want Scrivener to fulfill its potential excell...

You wrote this while I was making my long post, but I just wanted to say... I completely agree.

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

Personally, I like focus, and I like the way Apple is heading. Some people say that iPad Scrivener ported to the Mac through Catalyst would be a compromised app. Some people say that Apple products have to be compromised to accommodate Windows syncing. Somewhere along the line, compromises always h...

Re: Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

I'm gathering from all this discussion that the answer is, "no one knows" yet, lol. So I will definitely be holding off upgrading until I hear something official from all you at L&L. I don't know why Apple is so determined to make mobile a mobile OS the primary platform to get work don...

Re: Old (Font) Bug, New Circumstance

Is Book Antiqua installed on the Surface?. It comes with Office, which I had already installed. However, I went back and checked based on what you said, and apparently Microsoft now for some reason doesn't fully install the fonts with Office, but rather holds them in the cloud until you select them...

Old (Font) Bug, New Circumstance

Hello, Had a repeat of a bug I had not seen a while. After downloading Beta my work computer and personal desktop, all was going perfectly. However, I just got a new Surface Laptop in the last few hours for my own business, and when I installed the Beta on it, the font changed from Book Antiqua to &...

Thanks for the update regarding release!

Just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to Lee and the rest of the Windows team for an update on the status of Scriv 3 for Windows. Obviously, not the news I was hoping for, but I completely understand and wanted to say I appreciate the update. And I completely agree, the Beta has been stable (as...

Will iOS Scriv Work in iPad OS?

I apologize if this has been asked before, though I did look and could not find it. Basically, exactly what the topic says. Is iPadOS a truly new OS that will need its own version of apps to run them (and therefore I will avoid upgrading) or is iPadOS really just a new UI for iOS on iPad and all app...

Re: Scriv3 for Win - Yes another inquiry regarding release date.

But Windows and Mac files are no longer compatible. As far as that problem goes, you could use the Scriv 3 beta - I have been for months and there is loss of data between the two versions or iOS even, as I own all 3 versions of Scrivener. If you need to dump Scrivener because it is holding y ou bac...

June 20th Seems... Oddly Specific to End Beta 17

Noticed that this beta ends on June 20th, which seems rather specific and has gotten my hopes up. I don't expect a confirmation, but since the blog a while back said they hoped for a Q2 release, and the 20th is neither the start, end, or middle of a month, and falls neither at the start, end, or mid...

Re: Book Released!

Wow! Great cover. Looks really appealing to me. Never should though criticize book on its cover but it has to be compelling to stand out and this is just that. Congratulations. Thank you! Though the design is based off the Gate of Menigar in my novel, I can't take credit for the artwork. That would...
