Re: Converting Win 1.9 to Win Beta Mess

I followed the guidelines and installed Win 3 beta in its own unique directory, but the project are in the same directory, a dropbox folder not within either Scrivener directory. Is that an issue?

Re: Converting Win 1.9 to Win Beta Mess

I am on windows 10 BTW. Not that should matter. I may try to repeat this with old content just to see. Not sure what caused this odd result.

Katherine, what is the safest way to open old 1.9 files in Win 3.0 beta?

Thanks

Re: Converting Win 1.9 to Win Beta Mess

Also, the spacing of characters in the beta is off in composition mode, but I'm sure you guys already know that. It is intermittent.

Re: Converting Win 1.9 to Win Beta Mess

Another question came to mind. If I did not import the file, just opened it, is that improper protocol? Is it possible I corrupted my version of Win 3.0 in doing so? This morning the work seems to be OK. Also, if I successfully complete the rewrite in Win 3.0 beta which is my intention, can I save a...

Re: Converting Win 1.9 to Win Beta Mess

The process used was as simple as I could think of. I opened Win 3.0 beta. Did not have Win 1.9 open. I opened the Win 1.9 novel (scriv file) in 3.0. I was prompted to update. I did. That's it. The question I have now is an even more important issue. After having pieced the content together, chapter...

Re: Converting Win 1.9 to Win Beta Mess

Thanks Jim. Yes I have a 1.9 backup plus the word doc that was compiled from it so the original work is intact but not in the 3.0 version. I have been so anxious to get out of a years old version I thought I'd try it for the rewrite. I asked about data integrity prior. I converted from the lastest 1...

Converting Win 1.9 to Win Beta Mess

What a fiasco this product is. I asked earlier if content is safe using the beta. I was told it was. It is not. I converted a 1.9 file to the 3.0 beta. This was a complete first draft of a novel. Three scenes vanished. I did a global search. The content gone. Two dozen scenes jumbled. Some placed in...

Re: News and Scrivener 3 for Windows

Is the Beta safe to use in terms of protecting the content, saving work, not losing any writing?

News and Scrivener 3 for Windows

Why does is there news on the home page of Literature and Latte dated 2017? Is that what the company considers new? When will the product be updated? Give us a date, please. I guess Windows 3 is in line with three-year-old "news". Love the product, greatly disappointed that the company can...

Re: Scrivener 3.0 for Windows - New new goal time date release something

I get now that Owen was being sarcastic. The reason that I took it seriously is the history of some software products being in perpetual beta. Never finished. Never as in years.

Re: Scrivener 3.0 for Windows - New new goal time date release something

If that is the case, it makes little sense, like having a half-product. "While many estimates suggest there are more than 1 billion Windows-powered PCs in use in the world, Microsoft officially claims there are 400 million active users of Windows 10 itself. That makes Windows 10, without the ma...
