Re: Why the Android Version of Scrivener is Arguably the Most Important Version (and Why it's Number 1 on My Wish List)

Be aware that Scrivener expects all files in the project to be locally available. If you attempt to open an item in the Binder that is actually stored remotely, Scrivener may show an "empty" document. The document "reappears" once it's been downloaded, but many users find this b...

Re: Why the Android Version of Scrivener is Arguably the Most Important Version (and Why it's Number 1 on My Wish List)

I believe One Drive still stores a copy of the project locally. Often, "cloud-based" means "doesn't work without internet," which gets a hard NO from many people. It does, in fact, do exactly that, as long as you have set the modern versions of OneDrive to keep local copies of t...

Re: Why the Android Version of Scrivener is Arguably the Most Important Version (and Why it's Number 1 on My Wish List)

Looking back on this post, I'm very proud of how it's aged. Chromebooks are selling more than ever and gaining traction in this post-COVID landscape. Hopefully we'll see Scrivener come sooner than later, but for those looking for an alternative until then, I discovered an application called Wavemak...

Re: Scrivener user died: looking for extremely simple basic read-only overview of Scrivener for estate executors and hei

Man! I can think of much better and more secure applications for life management note taking! I know the damage is done in this case, and it works to the benefit of those who have to clean up after the deceased, but seriously folks, don't do that!

Re: Is there a plan to integrate Scrivener with Scapple?

Scapple is pretty handy. I'm less concerned with Scrivener integration than I am with adding some more mind mapping like features. I'd like to see some templates for timeline creation and perhaps a "Cause & Effect" template. I don't know if I'd want it to compete with xMind, or Freepla...

Re: Affinity Apps: Making your book look beautiful at 50% off.

As a photographer, I know Affinity Photo is a superb bit mapped photo editor raw image developer. I wholly recommend it for those looking to step up their photographic skills. I took advantage of the half price offer to get Affinity Publisher, even though as a subscriber to Microsoft OneDrive, I hav...

Re: My entire novel was sucked down the black hole now what?

Well I was on the phone for nearly 2 hours with an IT person associated with you, they were only able to retrieve a copy of the novel from about last September. I put 20K words in the novel between September and Now. Sadly all that work is lost. I do not know what I am going to do, but my first ins...

Re: Scrivener for Windows

This seems to be an argument against using the beta. The "pretty installer routine" is, clearly, not applicable when using the beta. Moreover, updating the beta requires a lot of user intervention. Yes, that is why I have chosen to continue to use V1.9 for Windows. I tried the beta a whil...

Re: Scrivener for Windows

Is the release of Scrivener 3 for Windows for real? Never seen a product take so long to get to market. Really disappointed. Can anyone recommend another product. It's time for me to move on. I'm doing 3 way "shoot out" type comparison where I am organizing my newest novel in Scrivener fo...

Re: Planning for Apocalypse

Today, when I called up Scrivener 1.x (1.9.16.0), it didn't recognize that I had a licensed copy of it, and started the countdown on the number of days a trial version would work. I didn't have any problem at all reactivating Scrivener. I just entered my email address and serial number (which I sto...

Re: Time to give us an update for Scrivener 3 launch window ?

I've gotten my money's worth out of Win version 1.9. I've since moved on to Wavemaker, primarily for the ability to use it with any computing platform. There's lots of good software out there, and no, they are not identical to Scrivener. BUT they do each have their own special charms, or they wouldn...

Re: Mindnode has moved to subscriptions

I don't use any subscription model software, or any 'online only' software. I'd rather go back to using my old Word 2007 than pay monthly for something, or be forced into a cloud. I buy the software I need and use it on my own PCs/iPad. I would happily switch to Linux full time if Dragon went subsc...
