Compile Preset Save & Load feature not working

Scrivener 1.9.0.1 Beta (64-bit) Linux Compile Preset Save and Load features are not working for me under Ubuntu Studio 16.10 64-bit. Maybe related to the Scratchpad pathing problem? Anyone have any luck with this? I was going to use the Preset feature since I keep multiple short stories in the same ...

Re: How much money would you require to release a new Linux version?

I'd pay a $100 dollars. No make that $200. Heck to avoid having to go back to the horror known as Windows, make that $300. Scrivener is my highest used productivity app. But Linux is my most productive and secure OS. I can not let this one app, no matter how much I use it, dictate that I go to the m...

Graybyrd's Scrathpad post, earlier in this thread, works for me

Graybyrd's Scrathpad post, earlier in this thread, works for me. I use the Tool menu to launch the Scratchpad. Click on the fist. Move my cursor to the bottom edge of the underlying dialogue window, drag the controls down into view, and hit the Cancel-button with the mouse cursor. The Scratchpad con...

Re: Scrivener 3 NEEDs to Save as... Scrivener Linux 1.9.0.1 beta compatible.

Thank you, Katherine, for all your hard work on this. For the other folks interested in this thread, the now working Windows 1.9.0 (Linux compatible) link is NOT the one Katherine posted earlier in the thread (That one is still dead), it is this one: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/rele...

Katherine, Thank you for pursuing that. In the meanwhile, I found over at this forum link: Scrivener 3 files compatible with Scrivener 2? (http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=50835) This comment, in reference to Mac Scrivener 3, "You can export a scrivener 2 compatib...

Older 1.9.0.1 compatible Windows version still downloadable?

Katherine, Thank you for asking your question. The answer is that it is worth money to L&L. And I'll demonstrate that. If you can tell me that a Windows version of Scrivener that can save to the 1.9.0.1 version is still available to download for Windows licensees, then I can generate sales for y...

Here is just an example of formats I can save LibreOffice in: Microsoft Word 2007-2013 Microsoft Word 2003 Microsoft Word 97-2003 I'm perfectly fine with a big fat dialogue that says: "Warning, saving this Scrivener Project to 1.9.0.1 compatibility may cause the loss of some document features.&...

[WORKAROUND] Can't get Bibliography Manager selection working

Every Zotero run file I have to point the Bibliography Manager to is a shell script. When I launch Bibliography from within Scrivener, it just opens up the shell script itself in an editor. I've made sure the scripts are all +X, and that makes no difference. Has anyone found a workaround for this? [...

Scrivener version 1.9.0.1 (64-bit) Linux, under Compile/Page Settings, does not appear to have the ability to skip page numbering except for the very first page. Has anyone found a work-around for this? I want to skip page numbers and possibly headers on not only cover page, but title, copyright, de...

Table Cell Background Fill Color won't save and often crashes Scrivener

I like my Table Cell text white on black background. I can change the text to white without trouble. But when I go to Table Properties and change the Cell Background from the default blue to black, and Cell Background from None to Cell Fill, it won't save, and often Scrivener crashes. Running 1.9.01...
