Scrivener 2.9 on Mac

So Scrivener 3.0 didn't run on the old Mac(El Capitan) and Scrivener 2.9 won't run on this new Mac (Catalina). Is an upgrade to 3 required? I am mostly a Linux under wine guy, so I wanted to see where the Beta was supposed to go. Supposedly kerning works better for e-books on the Mac, so that is why...

Running Scrivener under darling

I know a lot of us run the Windows version of Scrivener under wine. There is a project similar to wine to run MacOS programs under Linux called darling. Has anyone here tried running the Mac OS version of Scrivener under darling? Was it a failure or did it actually work?

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

I usually use the Windows version under wine and don't have this issue. But I enter accented characters with the right alt key. Will that work or do you have to use compose?

Scrivener 3.0 Beta vs Scrivener 1.9.16

Should I move to the Beta or stick with the supported version? I am dealing with issues in aspell and would like to try the improved spellcheck, but I don't know if I should move to the Scrivener 3.0 until it is supported. If I go to 3.0, this break compatibility with my Mac as it is too old to run ...

Scrivener 3.0 for Windows Release

Is there a way I can pre-buy the 3.0 release of Scrivener for Windows? I have used the 1.9 release for years, I use the iOS version, and I really enjoy the product. However, I just finished Nanowrimo and want to use my discount code to pay for the upgrade since I don't qualify for a free upgrade sin...

Re: best option for running Scrivener on Mint 19?

I tried installing the Scrivener beta for Linux under Linux Mint XFCE 19.1, and it installed OK as far as I know, but it never started up. No error message. It just never started. I'm running it in a virtual machine (VirtualBox). I have XFCE 19.1 AMD 64 Bit, running it with 4GB memory with no other...

Re: Latest Beta for Windows seems to work smoothly under Linux Mint+Wine

If it stops working under Wine, then I'll run it in a virtual machine. If the VM stops working, I'll go with another product or write my own. I've bought Scrivener for Windows, Mac, and iOs and I'd buy a Linux native one if I could, but they aren't keeping the old Beta up to date with the other vers...

Frustrating update to version 1.9.12.0 Under wine

I had Scrivener for Windows installed under wine since the Linux Beta stopped getting updates. It worked great until I tried to upgrade to Scrivener version 1.9.12.0. The error message from Paddle said I needed .Net 4.5 despite the new version of Scrivener requiring only 4.0. So anyway, registration...
