Re: When will Scrivener support iCloud (or the way around)?

The users/general public are not privy to the details of the structure of a .scriv file, so they wouldn't be able to communicate the critical details needed to obtain an answer. Such conversations are more effectively had between the developer (i.e. Literature and Latte) and Apple's Developer Suppo...

Re: When will Scrivener support iCloud (or the way around)?

The Scrivener file format isn't a proprietary format, though. It's a basic package file. It's just that Scrivener is overriding some of the default behaviors (so the entire package doesn't have to be saved/read, just the changed documents in the package) and iCloud sync doesn't provide correspondin...

Re: Scrivener not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina beta.

You know what else comes off badly? Tone policing the people who make these wonderful products available for us. I agree. These are wonderful products that bring value to our lives as writers. With that said, these wonderful products also need feedback from the community to thrive. If my feedback c...

Re: IPad Pro 2018 support

I chime in... by saying that I am not in the least bothered by it, and I have the latest 2019 iPad Pro. :lol: Which model do you have? The 2018 iPad Pro is currently the latest "iPad Pro" model. The only 2019 iPad models are the iPad mini (5th generation) and iPad Air (3rd generation). Th...

Re: When will Scrivener support iCloud (or the way around)?

Scrivener will support iCloud when iCloud handles the Scrivener package format correctly. When will that be? You'd need to ask Apple. Katherine Sadly, as someone who used to work for Apple, adding functionality for a specific developer's proprietary file format is a tough ask if that file format is...

Re: What does iOS 13 mean for Scrivener iOS and iCloud Sync?

would bring a lot of uses to the average writer, ... How do you know how the average writer uses Scrivener, iPad and Apple pencil? I could claim to be an average user and I would have no use at all for handwriting in Scrivener. Let us not fall victim to hasty generalizations. It's certainly true th...

Re: What does iOS 13 mean for Scrivener iOS and iCloud Sync?

Yes, this is a forum, but I've been a member of these forums for over 12 years, and practically every year, immediately after a WWDC broadcast, someone posts a thread like: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=57309 Hence my comment. I should have finished with a Smiley...

Re: Scrivener not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina beta.

She didn't pass judgement. What she stated is common knowledge in software testing: don't use test software for live work (unless you have the time and necessary support standing by). L&L is not offering that support, as per their normal policy, this early in the MacOS beta cycle. "And ins...

Re: Scrivener not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina beta.

One thing I will say, as a support resource you could use a bit more tact when it comes to passing judgment on the decisions of others. You likely didn't mean it that way, but it didn't land too well. It also doesn't land well when, within days after the beta drops, we get panicked emails from peop...

Re: Scrivener not working on macOS 10.15 Catalina beta.

Our policy with new versions of Mac OS is that we generally plan to have an update with any necessary changes around the time of the final release. Early betas in particular tend to be extremely buggy, and there's no point spending our time working around bugs that Apple will fix. We appreciate and...
