Re: Some thoughts on using Android as a writing platform

Android is currently a dog's breakfast when it comes to professional creation apps so suspect you'll be stretched to find a solution to equal Scrivener on that platform just yet. L&L have indicated an intent to develop an Android version of Scrivener, though you may be waiting some time. Meanwh...

Some thoughts on using Android as a writing platform

I recently spent more money than I intended on replacing my elderly and much loved Lenovo A7600F 10 inch Android tablet, and the matching (literally) Bluetooth keyboard, both of which showed signs of a seriously deteriorating battery After a couple of false starts and RMA requests, I have settled on...

Well then, never mind! That means it's perfectly OK to worry about v20.

Re: How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

Curio looks interesting, but it's only for the Mac. Too bad, I'm a PC guy.

Re: How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

I don't think it CAN be done! I'm glad Scapple only cost $15 because I'm having trouble finding a place for it in my workflow. The free (open source) version of xMind and the Open Source product FreePlane are much more useful to me. The problem with Scapple is that it is neither fish nor fowl. It ap...

Re: Thanks for the update regarding release!

I'm comfortable with this response. But it DOES sound as if future Windows versions will be a bit easier to create since much of the Windows "heavy lifting" will have already been done. Of course, Microsoft, being Microsoft, will no doubt require other newer, more challenging heavy lifting...

Lot's of PCs doing without Nvidia GPUs too! Does anyone know of an open source fantasy mapping tool?

Re: Affinity Publisher! It’s alive! ALIVE!

Some user advise. If they release an optional, extra cost "workbook", buy it. I have the one for Affinity Photo, and it is an excellent tutorial that can really help acquaint you with all the tools it offers.

Re: Recommendation to a Free Novel Writing Software: Manuskript

Manuskript is working slow for me. Is there any other better option. I think, in the end, most people come back to Scrivener. I came to writing through photography, where any app that costs less than $100 (US) is considered a bargain. I bought Scrivener with that mindset. And considering its positi...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

To be fair, I don’t think DaveK’s question of when has been answered, nor will it be in the beta forum. That’s not something we do. Some companies make public deadlines and then publish no matter what state the software is in. Others make soft deadlines and then miss them (because you always will) ...

Re: Announcement of new Beta Versions

There is only one beta for Windows. If your beta copy stops working then it is out of date. There is only one listed here in the beta area and its numbered (...17). Just because you want to stare down a date reference, does not make this confusing! I rather people post bugs here that actually helps...

Re: June 20th Seems... Oddly Specific to End Beta 17

There's an old saying in software development that, "you can have it fast, good, or cheap. Pick two, because you can't have all three!" My advice is to relax and enjoy the ride.

Re: beta after May 15th?

Jeeze! it's a doggone 'beta' program! that means when it comes out of beta, you'll have to pay for it anyway. Furthermore, L&L has the right to cancel the Beta program if they want to even if they aren't ready to go commercial with it yet. The beta programs don't normally obligate the developers...

Re: HELP! Where are the German quotation marks?

I can't find them in the drop-dowm list of smart quotes. (you see them here https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anf%C3%BChrungszeichen ) the seventsh' and the eights are both the same and the upper one at the end is always wrong. Also, I see that the list of the "double" quotation marks is shor...
