Re: Taskpaper 3

I started with Taskpaper 3, but after I discovered NotePlan in the AppStore (macOS and iOS, synching via iCloud of course), I never went back. The formatting possibilities are similar or better, basically Markdown is supported. Which is great. Also great is the fact that you can have tasks in notes ...

Re: Anything to share about Scrivener 3.0?

Version 2 is gone from the Mac AppStore. No version 3 in sight.

Re: Scrivener, High Sierra, and Backups

Hi all, I do not have that issue. However, whenever I hear "path / file system trouble right after High Sierra upgrade", I immediately think of the new file system that Apple introduced with High Sierra. I think(!) the old file system is updated in the background to the new one after the H...

Re: Another app (Ulysses) moves to a subscription based model

Heck, I hope I notice in time that Scrivener 3 is out (there will be no update in the AppStore app, right?) that I can purchase it as early as possible. Small clarification. Scrivener 3 *will* be released via the App Store. However, it is unfortunately not possible to offer an upgrade discount to A...

Re: Another app (Ulysses) moves to a subscription based model

I used (and loved) Ulysses for certain kinds of text, just as I love and use Scrivener for other kinds. However, this subscription model puts me off. The moment the permanent version (that I still have installed on my Macs) fails due to incompatibilities with future versions of macOS, I'm off. No su...

Re: We CANNOT see your work

+1 I follow the 3-2-1 backup strategy: each file exists (at least) three times, on 2 separate media, and one of them is offsite. I use Time Machine with a Time Capsule for regular backups of both laptops, and Carbon Copy Cloner plus an external hard drive for byweekly additional backups, and I store...

Re: Scrivener and Source Control (Git)

Scrivener 3.0 will be a paid upgrade -- at a substantial discount -- for Scrivener 2.x users. I don't know when the release date for Scrivener 3.0 will be. If you purchase Scrivener 2.x within a few weeks of the release date, Scrivener 3.0 will be free. Katherine Hi Katherine, will the discount als...

Re: Scrivener crashes on exit

All back to square one... I tried in vain to open Scrivener with shift. In Finder -> Applications, I held shift and double-clicked Scrivener (stupid me, I know...) and several dozen applications opened... :oops: I saw no other way but to hold the power key for an emergency brake and a reboot. And gu...

Scrivener crashes on exit

Hi, there is a new behaviour, but I am not sure what triggered it. I opened a DMG today on iCloud (encrypted DMG so that I can work on the Scrivener project inside on 2 MacBook laptops), changed something and left Scrivener. It crashed. Opened another, "normal" file on the file system. Lef...

Re: using scrivener on 3 devices

I can confirm what rontarrant wrote. I use 2 different Macs: a MacBook Pro whenever I plan to do software development, photo stuff or anything else that requires computing power, and a much lighter and smaller MacBook Air. I have installed Scrivener on both of them, and the licence works just fine. ...

Re: Tips on developing simple software

Hi D, well, for a start especially in Swift you should download both Xcode and the Swift eBooks from Apple. All of this is free. Before you start with anything at all, I strongly recommend learning git! It is already installed on your Mac, and Xcode supports it. You might think about getting yoursel...

Re: What kind of installation is Scrivener?

Good points... As long as I don't connect to the corporate network (would be rejected anyway, as it is an unknown device), and I don't store anything on the Internet, I could use my MB Air (bring your own device is okay up to a point here). That is probably the way to go. Structure the text in Scriv...

What kind of installation is Scrivener?

Hello, I am using Scrivener on my private Macs (MacBook Air and MacBook Pro) for my personal writing. Now, in a new department at work I am doing some things that could correctly be describes as "research" of sorts. Including the compilation of documents from bits and pieces, in other word...

Re: Access research data for many writing projects

I used DevonThink a lot before I discovered Scrivener, so this is where I keep my research. I think it would be possible to copy the subset of information in DevonThink to Scrivener if needed. This would probably work well if the information I researched is fairly complete. It might be more difficul...
