Re: Question about timing of updates to the Beta

Katherine, thank you for the helpful guidance about backing up the settings. I didn't know that was possible, nor do I know how to do it at the moment, but I suppose I can figure it out. If the cycle of monthly updates to the beta is to continue into the future (and I know no one really knows, so le...

Question about timing of updates to the Beta

Hi. I may have missed something along the way, but I'm trying to keep up with the beta/release candidate updates, My challenge is the timing of the updates vis a vis the expiration date of the previous version. For example, the latest version (RC 2.9.9.10) was released on Sept 14th. The previous ver...

Re: Best practices for multi-novel series projects

Now that Katherine has clarified the "size" issue... Who can suggest the best way to organize the files for multiple BOOKS within one Scrivener Project. For example, each BOOK would have separate FRONT and BACK matter, covers, etc. How would that work best? Would COLLECTIONS play a part in...

Best practices for multi-novel series projects

I have a multi-volume series that needs extensive revision. I am hoping to do this in Scrivener later this year (once the final version is released). My big question for the big day is this: what is the best practice for using Scrivener for long, multi-volume projects? In my case, it's truly one lon...

Will the next Beta Update come in time?

Part of the reason I am reluctant to do any major work in the beta version of the Windows 3.0 Scrivener is the current beta-locking system in place. It essentially renders the software useless at a specific point in time. I understand why it's there - to prevent the software becoming permanently &qu...

Re: It's official - Constructive Criticism as a form of improvement is DEAD!

Stand down. Go write. Grow up. .... Have I exaggerated? Don't believe me? Watch what happens next... This is exactly the response that will justify JackSchaeffer in his closing warning. You don't know how much he writes, aside from the 10 minutes or so it took to write that post. As for "Grow ...

Re: It's official - Constructive Criticism as a form of improvement is DEAD!

What constructive criticism was met with hatred and malice? Can you give an example of something constructive that was met with malice? One user made this statement recently: Any xplat development takes time but..... I was shocked.... by reading the blog they're using QT and doing development separ...

It's official - Constructive Criticism as a form of improvement is DEAD!

Every few weeks I check the Windows Forum topics for news on the progress of V3. I share the dismay and bewilderment of MANY, MANY Scrivener users arising from the inexplicable delays. Yes, I've read the "explanations and apologies" posts, so I beg you, please don't direct me to to them ye...

Re: Multi-screen Support

I'm surprised by no response to this question. Does this mean there will NOT be any true multi-screen support in the next version of the software?

Multi-screen Support

I am hoping against hope that with the upcoming version 3.0 there will be true multi-screen support in the program. MANY people have more than one screen on the desktop, or they may be using a laptop and have an external monitor also attached at the same time. It would be extremely helpful if we cou...

Re: Collaborating With Scrivener

I posted the original "wish" here a few weeks ago. Just read all the replies. Here's my take away: 1) Saying it's just too hard is a cop out - clearly customers want collaboration, they NEED it, and co-writing is a thing of the future. Telling people to get over themselves is not helpful. ...

Collaborating With Scrivener

Are there any plans for making Scrivener a truly collaborative platform? I reviewed the little bit you've posted about the upcoming Version 3 of Scrivener, and I was disappointed to not see anything about making the software collaborative. I purchased Scrivener nearly three years ago because I belie...
