Re: Workaround if the latest Scrivener beta crashes in Wine or Crossover

Ah, not to worry - I'm sure most people were able to figure it out. :-)

Re: A heads up on Crossover

Crossover’s response is perfectly reasonable, in fact similar to L&L policy on OS betas. Hardly any company will expend effort on compatibility with betas. Too many things can change. The fact V3 beta worked for 2 years is a bonus. The people at Crossover are very helpful in my experience. Aski...

Re: PLEASE make the beta periods longer!

I have to say that I agree with the OP, especially since the beta/RC period is taking as long at it is. At the very least, there should be an 'override' option that allows you to use an expired beta for another one or two weeks, giving you time to find a place that has a good (and fast!) internet co...

Workaround if the latest Scrivener beta crashes in Wine or Crossover

As multiple people have noticed, the latest Scrivener beta crashes in Crossover 20/Wine 5.X. After running a few tests, I discovered that the crash occurs when Scrivener tries to load the text-to-speech engine. As a workaround, rename the subfolder 'texttospeech' inside the Scrivener folder to somet...

Re: A heads up on Crossover

I have found the cause: Scrivener crashes if it tries to load the text-to-speech engine. As a workaround, rename the subfolder 'texttospeech' inside the Scrivener folder to something like 'texttospeech_old'. This will prevent the application from loading the *dll file, and allow the application to l...

Re: A heads up on Crossover

I have the same problem on Linux. Have already reported it with Crossover.

I wonder what is going on, though - it could either be the upgrade to Wine 5.0, or a change within Scrivener itself.

Re: Accented characters don't work on Wine (Linux)

I just solved this on my system, so I thought I'd post the solution here. Ibus was installed on my computer using Kubuntu 19.10, but I still ran into the problem where Scrivener would produce the same character every time I tried typing an accent. I.e., if I first typed é, every accented character t...

Re: Working with large *.scriv folders

Ah, thanks!

@ Literature & Latte - are any optimisations or changes that will speed up loading times when working with larger *.scriv folders planned?

Thank you for your reply!

What do you mean when you say a 'mix' works? I'd like to try out your approach on my Windows PC.

Many thanks in advance!

Working with large *.scriv folders

I have a Scrivener project folder which I have been using for the past ten years or so as a repository for notes concerning the various sources that I work on as a scholar. This has always worked well. By allowing me to organise, edit and look up information in one and the same interface, Scrivener ...

Re: Cannot save edits to a text that has comments

You are welcome! This appears to be a permissions issue. EDIT #1 - odd: I was able to edit a text that had a comment by running the programme as an administrator, but was able to do this only once. No further edits held - they were gone when I restarted Scrivener. EDIT #2 - I am no longer sure this ...

[LH3134] Cannot save edits to a text that has comments

I think I've discovered a very substantial bug in the new beta: If you add comments to a text you can no longer edit it . To replicate, * Create a new project; * Add two identical texts to either 'draft' or 'research' (use e.g. lorem ipsum); * Add a comment to one of the two texts (shift-F4); * Save...
