Why so serious?
Clearly I wasn't asking for an ETA; besides, the beta works nicely for me.
But I'd like to pay L&L for their work by Christmas, if possible.
It just seems aesthetically correct. :)

All I want for Christmas ...

Re: Will version 3 be released this year?

Let It be ready when the developers say its ready. :D From my experience with the beta, the management of most software companies would have pushed Scrivener 3.0 for Windows out the door by now as "good enough to generate revenue." What I adore about L&L's is that they haven't. I look...

Re: [Beta 23] Scrivener On-Screen Type can Look Great

But, to your main point on the screen. I strongly recommend to all my clients NOT to get 4k screens because they are likely to have some software in Windows that doesn't handle it right and it can be very frustrating. Older users want bigger text and when they get 4k monitors they have to run at 20...

Re: [Beta 23] Scrivener On-Screen Type can Look Great

One last note: If your text quality matters to you getting the best resolution for your screen your can afford helps. I agree, more pixels to communicate data from the computer to your eyes is always good. I run a 32" 4K display surrounded (sides and above) by four 24" 2450x1440 displays,...

It's been thirteen days since my last Scrivener beta ...

Is there a Beta Users Anonymous I can join?
I'm feeling withdrawal symptoms.

But what I really crave is the production release,
so I should probably just shut up and let the L&L people work. :lol:

DON'T PANIC about the beta 18 expiration date

L&L has never failed to release a new beta before the old one expires.

Just thought I'd post this to preempt anyone worrying about it.

Re: beta after May 15th?

The agreement that a beta user makes with the company is to accept a certain amount of bugs as part of the process, to expect the program to occasionally crash (as it has for me), and to decide that it is worth using the beta anyway. If people did not use the beta to do "real work" then n...

Re: Beta 14: Bug in Compile section separators

Update: Closed the Scrivener, re-opened it, changed some Header/Footer options, and it's borked again.
Without me telling it to, Scrivener set it back to "<Between Type="Custom"></Between>" in the scrformat file.

Re: How to get compile styles working

Styles still don't seem to work in Compile to Word under Beta 13. I use two styles: "Heading 1" and "Song" -- most text is NoStyle. My text sections are compiled with "Override text and notes formating" checked. There are no styles listed in the Compile -> Styles pane. ...

[LH3295] New Bug, Beta 11: "Export Outline Contents to CSV" only exports top level of displayed tree

Exporting a book only exports info for the top-level folders of the book (including Total Word counts of zero) regardless of whether they are expended in the outliner. This is not how Beta 10 worked. I suspect there's an issue with processing the links between folders and the files within them in th...

[LH3293] New Bug, Beta 11: "Total Words" and "Total Character" now zero

Updated from B10 to B11, opened my WIP:
Both Total Words and Total Characters are reporting "0" for all the files and folders.
"Words" is reporting the correct value.
