Re: Expirations on Beta versions

I bookmarked the download link after several expiration dates. So much easier now.
What would have made every beta tester's life easier is to automatically link to the download site when a user tries to open an expired version.

Re: Scrivener 3 for Windows but when?

This is just a guess since I'm not on the development team . I'm figuring the release will be between May-Aug of this year. Better idea after April beta release. There are many little bugs that need to be taken out and a few major features to be completed. Software development is complicated. :lol:...

Re: Removing old beta without removing current released version

A few lines of code in any version could make this very simple. Just make one version aware of future (or past) versions. How difficult can that be?

Removing old beta without removing current released version

Hi; I am running both Scrivener 1.9.7.0 (released) and the latest beta. I installed the beta into "C:\Program Files\Scrivener3", while the release version is in "...\Scrivener". I believe I read here that before installing a new beta, the old beta needs to be un-installed. I have...

Re: Bug: Words marked as mis-spelled before they have been completed

In MS Word 2010, there is a checkbox to turn on or off "check spelling as you type". I have always kept it turned on, but don't use grammar checking at all, since I write a lot of technical stuff. I also turn off most of the auto-format options, since I don't normally use bullet lists and ...

Re: Bug: Words marked as mis-spelled before they have been completed

That's not good news. MS for Windows (at least Office 2010) doesn't do that. If the Scrivener developers want to make their product for Windows as close to the Mac version, then I suppose this isn't a bug at all. But I cannot understand how this would be the preferred behaviour. I suppose I'll just ...

[LH2961] : Words marked as mis-spelled before they have been completed

While Check Spelling as you Type is turned on, some words are marked (with squiggly red underline) as mis-spelled before they have been completed (no space, punctuation, or return has been added yet). Once completed the squiggly red underline disappears. http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp335/CPSK...

Date and time format?

Hi; I am trying to get Scivener (1.9.7.0) to insert something other than Windows "long date/time". Just truncating after minutes would work, but it would be nice to have the option to insert only the date without the time, or the time (sans secinds) without the date. From what I understand...

Problem purchasing license

Hi; I found a couple of discount codes (20% off) for Scrivener so I decided to go ahead and purchase a regular Windows license. Since the upgrade to Scrivener 3.0 for Windows will be free for new purchases, I figured now is a good time to buy. Anyway, I clicked the Purchase Scrivener link from withi...
