Re: Scrivener/Wine memory issue

Much thanks, Brookter, Garpu;

So, it's time to upgrade Wine. Wonder how many people are running Scrivener under lower versions of Wine?
As I said, the memory allocation issue also caused my systems to hang at shutdown.

Well, it's off to the repositories.

Re: Scrivener/Wine memory issue

Hi, brookter, I'm no whiz at the terminal either. I'm running Xubuntu 18.04, Wine 3.0 (That's what's in the standard repository. Staging has always given me trouble when I've tried it.), Scrivener-- latest beta. Probably irrelevant-- older I3 Dell desktop and an ASUS I5 laptop. I have the same issue...

Re: Scrivener/Wine memory issue

Hi, jd, To be fair, I wouldn't expect any company selling Mac and Windows software to provide support for running their product on Linux. L&L's tech support has helped me in a couple of instances, however. The place to get help with Wine, POL, etc, is here in the forums. Someone will come along....

Scrivener/Wine memory issue

Hi, all, There's a thread on this but it hasn't drawn any new responses recently. Scrivener 2.9.XXX (the latest beta) running under Wine on Xubuntu 18.04. Scrivener doesn't release memory when I exit the program. If I close Scrivener and start it up again later, it grabs another chunk of memory. Eve...

Themes and prefences

Hi, all, Been playing with the beta versions. All the options for customization are a procrastinators dream. I want to be sure I save all the changes I've made, so I have a question. In options>manage there are three options to save 1) theme to file; 2) theme options to file; and 3) options to file....

Re: Scrivener only opens by going through Word

If I understand what you mean, when you click on a file with a .scrivx extension it opens in Word. It sounds like Windows changed the default program for .scrivx files to Word. There's an easy fix but it's been years since I've used Windows . If this is the problem I'm sure someone more familiar wit...

Re: Navigation in binder

Thanks for the replies. One of you mentioned scrivenings and gave me an idea. I went back and played around with both the 1.9 release and the current beta. I can use up/down arrow keys and scroll through the whole manuscript in all three modes in both versions except for scrivenings in the beta. I s...

[LH3201] Navigation in binder

(Tried to post this earlier but something went wrong. Wormhole? Anyway, apologies for possible duplicate posts.) Hi everyone! I've been playing with the beta version. Really nice, guys. Just a comment: One criticism of 1.9 was the interface looked dated. Maybe it's just me but I don't see much diffe...

From beta to version 3?

I"m getting a new OS install ready and looking ahead to version 3. If I install the beta version now, what will moving to version 3 involve? Upgrade option from within Scrivener? Uninstall beta; install version 3? Will I be able to import preferences?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Re: Scrivener Windows version crashes constantly

I haven't used Windows in years, but just to clarify: When you say you loaded the file, how did you load it? Drag and drop? Copy and paste? Where is the file located? Hard drive? DVD? The path to that file looks strange to me, even for Windows but the Windows users here are better judges of that. I'...

Re: Error: A connection to the licensing server could not be established

@ Cranky After looking at some of the other posts in this thread, I need to change some things from my previous posts. After the new install of Scrivener and manually starting Paddle.exe, I was able to activate the program. I still get the error message about not being able to connect to the server....

Re: Error: A connection to the licensing server could not be established

Just a follow-up on my previous post. I realize this is a Windows forum, but the process of activating Scrivener is essentially the same between Windows and Linux. The good news: I was able to uninstall/reinstall Scrivener, and activate it by manually starting paddle.exe before starting Scrivener. (...

Re: Error: A connection to the licensing server could not be established

FWIW: Tried to open Scrivener on my laptop (after a short break from writing) and I am having similar issues. I'm running Linux and Scrivener under Wine so my error messages aren't quite the same. The program opens, the activation window comes up, and after entering my info., I get the error message...
