Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

Also... I just realized something. It keeps being repeated how important the philosophy here is. How important it is to focus on the writing itself... How the heck does forcing me to make extra documents and compile them (in the scenarios where I don't want to) Facilitate this? That's LESS focus on ...

Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

In version 3 Version 3 is a beta, and unstable. The official store page all but recommends against using it. "Just a taste" as they say. I'm not in the habit of working on a serious project in unstable beta software. is not a wysiwyg This doesn't excuse the editor's ruler being inaccurate...

Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

Quite frankly I don't care what Scrivener's philosophy is. I cared about a convenient project management integration built on-top of a word processor. I paid $60 for that software. A software developer trying to force their philosophy on "how you should write" is outright stupid. Guess wha...

Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

I shall simply list my complaints 1. Default margins (lack thereof) 2. Setting the default right margin 3. Inconsistency between on-screen text size and what actually prints 4. No page breaks. Scrivener is not a wysiwyg word processing software where you fix the layout while writing, so what you ar...

Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

Update: The first thing I did after posting was go to the website to find Scrivener 3. I am now officially frustrated with this product. Your condescending tone made it seem like it was an actual release. At first glance it doesn't even appear to be available yet on windows. Only after scrolling do...

Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

Thank you for your speedy reply Katherine. I am using Version: 1.9.13.0. As a rule I generally do not review or evaluate Beta releases of software, since as the 'beta' tag implies, they are still in development (and likely unstable). When I'm working on a project I'd tend towards a stable "comp...

A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

Hello, I made this account to reach out to the developers of this software with some concerns as a customer. I hope the development team sees this feedback and keeps it in mind for future updates. I would much rather use Scrivener than Celtx... But in it's current state I would much rather use OpenO...
