Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

I guess I'm just a bit more careful with asking people to use those things and generally prefer a good "clean up everything (including ears, toes and navel) and start over from scratch" as a more suitable recommendation. But that's just me. And my being lazy and not wanting to get involve...

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

I'm "beta-testing" Scrivener 3. By "beta-testing", what I really mean is that I've basically switched to it for my writing needs. I sit and write. I use it to write. And whenever I come up with a problem with the software, I take just a moment and switch to my old training. I see...

Awesome. Thank you!

Re: Bug: Insert key deactivated on every launch

I believe this may be the same bug as the one I am experiencing. The way I would explain it is this: "Overtype Mode" appears to be enabled by default, only on this application, whenever I start it up. I call it this because there is a checkbox in "Settings - Editing - Options" ma...

Is there a non-video explanation of the Compile function?

I'm trying to really learn how this function works and in greater depth, so that I can, well, use it properly. Back in the 90's, that would have been relatively easy. Any documentation on it would have been written out, because you might have to sit for three minutes on dialup just to receive a sing...

Re: Next Beta/RC/Version 3?

Speaking as someone who ignored the advice not to use the betas for important work, you betcha that I compiled all of my projects to Word yesterday. Didn't you? Close! I set up all my projects, in Scrivener 1 or Scrivener 3 Beta, to auto-sync to folder in rtf files every single darn time I close th...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

I myself have not been able to afford a new Windows portable machine for a long time. I use my desktop, which is 64-bit, at home. But when I am mobile, taking the kids to doctor office visits and suchlike (I have a kid with medical needs, so I get a fair bit of writing done in these places), my one ...

Weird issue: Chapter 49 and only Chapter 49 won't compile

Pretty much what it says in the topic header... Chapter 49 comes out empty every time I compile, I've been compiling to epub and to rtf, and it happens in both cases. It just goes Chapter 49 and then Chapter 50 and starts the text for Chapter 50. Ok. While I was writing this, I checked to see if the...

Re: It's official - Constructive Criticism as a form of improvement is DEAD!

I think I said this before, but... Ever since I learned how to Sync To External Folder, thus setting up my book in its proper structure in neat lil rtf files, I have always done it on a project in progress. Not only does it let me edit it in Android if I happen to want to add something while I'm on ...

Re: It's official - Constructive Criticism as a form of improvement is DEAD!

The L&L universe, as reflected in these forums, is an extremely bitter and jaded world, one I am not proud to be a part of. At this juncture, even if V3 was fully released and exceeded the functionality of the Mac version, I would not be comfortable recommending it to anyone for fear they would...

Re: Commitment & responsibility...

Hi, I use Scrivener for Windows only. For what it's worth, my view of it is this: I'm fairly new to the boards and have been using the program for years without knowing a thing about the MacOS version, the 3 Beta, or the various types of drama going on in all the discussions. To establish my perspec...

Re: Error: A connection to the licensing server could not be established

The problem seems intermittent for me, and hasn't become a serious issue yet; I just get the pop-up sometimes and not other times. I'm very close to the end of my book. If I can't get it to work, it'll be annoying, but not a disaster. I set up a sync folder, so my various files show up as properly-n...
