Re: Zotero Plugin

Not sure if tree is still reading this, but the zotpicknix scripts link Scrivener and Zotero in Linux (similar to Dave Smith's applescripts for Mac). You'll find detailed instructions with the scripts. There is also a discussion of alternative Linux workflows in the Linux section of the L&L forum.

Re: Help the hopeless with spellcheck

That's the normal place for an Ubuntu .deb install. See point 8 of the post to which you linked: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=20489#p159217 But if you followed the earlier part of edf's post and created symlinks for libaspell using /usr/local paths then that woul...

Re: Help the hopeless with spellcheck

I'm hesitant to say anything here as I'm not a crouton user, but until someone wiser comes along... I realise I'm covering things you alluded to in your post, but to start somewhere: 1. You mention 'multiple' libaspell libraries. Do you have libaspell-dev installed? sudo apt-get install libaspell-de...

Re: Scrivener and Zotero

Yes, that works for some users, but trailing punctuation in the footnote style is only one reason users might want to include locator information in the citation. The obvious use case (which applies to me) is where users are switching between citation styles which format page references differently....

Re: Scrivener and Zotero

I can see where content notes would be easier in the picker. Good reason! As an afterthought, can you go back and update the content notes that you have created, using the picker? Or does it "start over"? k Sadly, no - it starts over. Giving the picker the ability to interpret markers on ...

Sad news, but not unexpected.

Thanks for all the fish - the very excellent fish - and for this generous parting gift.

Re: Scrivener Beta on Raspberry Pi 2 not launching.

Huh, I'd be curious for the sake of curiosity if it works. Scrivener works well via WINE, but as we all know by now WINE is not an emulator. (Sorry, LISP programmer. Couldn't help throwing in a bit of recursion.) Dying. I'm dying. ExaGear runs WINE (allegedly), so if you really want to make your Pi...

Re: Scrivener and Zotero

If you have space to open two windows (two monitors is ideal, of course), then simply open Scrivener in one and Zotero in the other. If you have scannable cite selected in Zotero, then just click and drag the source/title from Zotero into the cursor position in Scrivener. Naturally - but these are ...

Re: Scrivener Beta on Raspberry Pi 2 not launching.

ExaGear is an x86 virtualiser for the Pi 2 which the manufacturers claim is faster than QEMU, but I'll eat my hat if it runs Scrivener successfully. If you do get it going, please tell us about it. I imagine it will be more of a curiosity than workable writing software. See also this discussion: htt...

Scrivener and Zotero

Zotero users may be interested to know that there is now a much improved workflow for using Zotero in Scrivener for Linux with a floating picker and getting live citations at the end. It takes a while to set up, but it does work well once correctly configured. Full instructions: https://emmareisz.gi...

Fonts 1/3 too big on pdf compile

So, here's a weird bug for the greybeards and (Graybyrds :wink:) on this forum... When I compile to pdf, the text appears in a font which is 1/3 bigger than expected (the typeface is as specified). So if I specify Liberation Sans 12pt, in pdf I get Liberation Sans 16pt. If I specify 9pt, I get 12pt ...

Re: Dran-and-Drop Possible: WINE<-->X?

Quick aside re. your PS - I sometimes lose footnotes with cut and paste on Linux 1.7.2.3 on Linux, but I find they always come back if I undo and paste a second time - I found it easier to do that than to switch to WINE.

Re: Who want a Linux release version?

At least at the moment, the Linux release is not really a beta but an unsupported, free release with no bugfixes and minimal development beyond cross-platform compatibility. That is very gracious of L&L and works well for this user. I don't think the above is entirely accurate. There have been ...

Re: What happens in January 2016?

It has been implied by the powers that be that there will be a new Linux release as usual: https://literatureandlatte.com/forum/vi ... 15#p203327

Thanks pigfender for telling us about it.
