Re: [NB] How to consolidate all open Scrivener projects?

I'm on Windows and use https://www.stardock.com/products/groupy/. Works perfect. I can get tabs in Windows, Scrivener, or both.

Re: Just about out of patience

I posted a couple months ago that people should be patient in the waiting game for Scrivener 3 for windows. After all, I thought, the beta was looking pretty good (while still way too buggy to use). Well, I'm rethinking my comments of support. The wait is too long, and there is absolutely ZERO upda...

Re: Scrivener and Surface Pro

Thanks for the info and the guidance on the search 'how to.' I guess I'm asking more about software problems/challenges etc than hardware. I'm a writer, not a computer guy, so I don't want to have to do a bunch of install this, move that, etc etc etc just to put Scrivener on Surface Pro once I can f...

Scrivener and Surface Pro

Does Scrivener work well with Surface Pro machines?

I've been searching all over for the answer and can't find it. I want to buy a Microsoft Surface Pro but not if there's a lot of work to set it up with Scrivener.

Re: Anyone else using the BETA for their work?

As soon as the release of BETA was announced I jumped on board and have had ZERO problems. Well, there was that one time the stripper jumped on my table and drop kicked my drink onto my laptop. But I guess that can't be considered a BETA problem. Jerry Nelson An American freelance writer living the ...

Re: [JH] Bug: Scrivener issues "Scrivener is Not Responding."

I'm not a computer guy at all, but I did hear something about Windows doing an update. I wonder if that may have caused something?

Thanks for the help though -- we'll get to the bottom of this! :D

Re: [JH] Bug: Scrivener issues "Scrivener is Not Responding."

Scrivener stops responding randomly with no duplicatable steps. It stops in different projects, but not all and when it stops responding, it may go into hibernation for an hour or just a few minutes. I will say though that the non-responsiveness has decreased since I first noticed this thread. It's ...

Re: Bug: Scrivener issues "Scrivener is Not Responding."

I've run into the same problem as well -- but no hard drive issues. New laptop and all my diagnostics say the HD is working great. I did see a suggestion somewhere to change the frequency of auto-save/backup and it seemed to help, but not enough. The "Scrivener Not Responding" error is fru...

Re: Beta for the brave?

Thanks for the help! Instead of all this swtiching-back-and-forth between old Scrivener and the beta, I'd just as soon toss $100 to L&L to keep my beta up and going. I'm willing to take the risk. They make a few extra bucks and I don't have to eat up time switching versions. Again, thanks for th...
