Re: beta after May 15th?

...I gotta admit. I'm getting nervous. You’re entitled to your emotions. :D HEH! But it' looks like there *might* be a new beta release in time for me to download it and not have to copy/paste my deadline project into Scriv 1.9... Now the question is, "will it update before I have to leave for...

Re: beta after May 15th?

...I gotta admit. I'm getting nervous. the beta expires in four days and all the new releases didn't squeak this close to the wire. I think i'm going to manually copy/paste my current projects into 1.9 as I do not have time to wait on a release if this beta deactivates and there's no update--or the ...

Re: I tried to like it. I really did.

You could add a metadata field to hold a synopsis. It can be the first field of your metadata. You can set the text color the way you want. Then, because you have the metadata always present, it's there, on the right hand side. ...why didn't I think of that I guess because I'm so used to the corkbo...

Re: I tried to like it. I really did.

okay, but that's not what I was doing with the custom meta data and the synopsis being on the right side of the editor page, and it is this vary specific thing that is my entire reason to use scrivener. I did try two panes for a while, but it was much simpler and cleaner to use custom meta data, so ...

I tried to like it. I really did.

Listen don't get me wrong. the new scriv looks great. it's everything I hoped it would look like. but there was a problem, back in 2017 when I first tried out the beta, and I can't keep quiet about it any more. The new inspector pane's limitations disappoints me so much I can't deal with it. here's ...

Re: romance novel critique groups?

Re: architecture problem when trying to install

Hi titianmom, I tried to re-install but i still have the same problem, it's not running. and I have a very complicated problem in that I can't seem to create a bootable USB that doesn't hang immediately on boot, so I can't change to a 32 bit linux (which i would happily do) and then install scrivene...

Well I suppose so...

Technically yes, I'm a writer. My first short story sold to Gothic.net years ago. it literally came in time to pay my rent. I've sold to semi-pro markets here and there. a story to Baen books for their magazine, and i've written a couple of stories with a collective of actual authors as part of thei...

Re: architecture problem when trying to install

Re: architecture problem when trying to install

I should always look around more. so the problem is that i'm using 64 bit linux but scrivener for linux is written for 32 bit?

okay, fine. i'll install a 32 bit linux os.

The only thing I use my netbook for is writing and using the internet, so I'll try this and see if it works.

architecture problem when trying to install

Hello, I thought I should try the linux distribution before I run out of trial time to run it on my windows desktop. my netbook is what i take with me when I want to get out of my apartment and work in a different environment, and so there's no sense relying on scrivener if I can't take it with me. ...
