Re: Grateful for the good news

Over three weeks now since RC5 was released. I think that's a very positive indication of its maturity.

My birthday is in late June.
I think there is a good chance I'll have bought Scrivener 3 for Windows by then. :D

Time will tell.

Grateful for the good news

There's an overabundance of doom, doubt, and dreariness on the Internet. We all know that. But here in the Scrivener-W Beta forums, I see good news. "Beta" has become "Release Candidate." Testers are still dutifully reporting issues, and I have every confidence that the Scrivener...

Re: Question on Usability / Reliability of the Beta

After four years, I'm in the middle of writing the second book of my planned five-book hard SF story. First book is ready for beta readers at 160K words, second book is at 83K words, all in Scrivener 3 Beta. I'm not worried about Scrivener in the least. I've had problems with MS Word more often than...

Re: Given coronavirus, are those of us using the Beta going to be... discommoded on the 31st?

I just want L&L to release a version they think is worth selling, because I want to buy Scrivener 3 for Windows. I think the current "betas" are already worth paying for, but L&L appears to have higher standards than I do. In my defense, I use a lot of Microsoft software, so I'm us...

[B43] Facing page and first page headers and footers not working on compile to DOCX.

First and facing pages get the Main Body header and footer when compiling to DOCX,
But if I just change the output to PDF, both first and facing pages get their assigned headers and footers.

Re: Forced constant beta update

In case you're not aware, you can change Scriv prefs to alert you when an update is available. F12 > General > Startup > Automatically check for updates. Based on what others have posted here, I *believe* you can then have Scriv download the update and do an update in place. So no need to visit thi...

Re: Forced constant beta update

We've been in beta for ever..... being forced to update manually every 30 days, or in this case, 10 days is just not..very respectful of our time as users. But you're not just any user, are you? You're a beta user , and that's different from a regular user. Beta users are given the opportunity to u...

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. :)

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:
