Re: Forced constant beta update

Running an absurd 2+ year beta trial and forcing users to go to a forum on a near bi-weekly basis to download upgrades, is messing them around. I'm not going to touch on anything else you've said here, but I will point out, just to try and help streamline your process, that the beta does have an in...

Re: Forced constant beta update

I was getting some very hostile and rude comments because of chiming in on the general frustration about this. Seeing those mean comments really upset me and rubbed me the wrong way. The level of fanatic support for this company from it's customers, or whatever these accounts represent, is very puzz...

Re: Forced constant beta update

This thread iwas not intended for those users who love the bi weekly forced updates, for whatever strange reason. If you want to express that, perhaps start another separate thread, The thread was started by somebody who is unhappy with the situation and others, like me, who feel the same way chimed...

Re: Forced constant beta update

Here are SEVERAL technically feasible and commonly used techniques for solving this and regaining the goodwill of those of us who are now fed up: Make a statement to thank Beta testers for participating and for their patience, and explain why the project ended up taking so much longer than original...

Re: Forced constant beta update

I stand by every word I said, as a customer and somebody who has participated in this Beta test for two (2!!!) years. None of this would have been a problem if it had been going on for 6 months, or up to a year --- a normal duration for a generous beta testing period, by a major software house. When...

Re: Forced constant beta update

Please set expiration date of upcoming Betas so that we can skip 1-2 updates and do it quarterly, or at some more reasonable frequency 1. L&L are up front about the beta and the process. Regardless of any claimed failings .... ETC ETCE If you don't work for Literature and Latte, I really don't ...

Re: Forced constant beta update

I too agree with the original poster that it's a nuisance. Anyone who's saying "well don't use the Beta then, if you don't like the setup" is forgetting that the current version of Scrivener for Windows is ancient and that the new version introduces functionality and settings we have all b...

Re: How to NOT store the Scrivener project in Dropbox, on iOS?

Just one more question: If the device is offline, would the files from dropbox still be available? I'm curious, are you using OneDrive now to share your projects now between your two PCs? Which version? Jim Hi Jim, oops 1 year passes quickly!  I'm using dirsync pro an open source, free solution tha...

Re: Why don't we do something useful in the meantime?

To answer the original question: Translating is incredibly boring, needs fully native skills and is also quite time consuming. That's why we pay a price for the software - i.e. somebody else does the work. I can program too, but I'm not going to offer to help with that for free either.  I'm sure thi...

How do I enable the Dark Mode in Windows Beta?

Just downloaded the Windows Beta version - it is supposed to have pre-set colour modes, including two dark modes. 
Problem is; it's not clear how to enable them. I think I looked in all the usual places. Any beta user out there able to tell me?

Re: Expirations on Beta versions

I agree with OP - that's over the top and I work in software development.  Guess what - pirates will always pirate and all Scrivener versions up until now have been cracked. I personally want to support the developers, so I pay up, In return I don't want to be treated with suspicion and patronised. ...

Re: How to NOT store the Scrivener project in Dropbox, on iOS?

Thanks for a really well-written response. That answered all my original questions. Just one more question: If the device is offline, would the files from dropbox still be available? And I suppose I should not have bought an i pad to begin with, if ] have an issue with being in a locked down environ...

Can I get the "black" style from iOS on Windows?

I love the option in Scrivener for iOS to switch to black background and white text.
Is there any way to get this in Windows?
If not, please would you put it on the Wish list...

How to NOT store the Scrivener project in Dropbox, on iOS?

I'm quite new to iOS (although I am an IT professional). I purchased the iOS version of Scrivener and installed it. I am already running Scrivener on two Windows machines and syncing those projects using a Windows tool. I don't like Dropbox for various reasons and I'd much prefer not to use it. I c...
