Re: beta will expire 10 october?

(Note: if you go past the expiration date, the older beta version will no longer open and you will not be able to use this method -- meaning that you might lose any settings customizations you have made.) This is not strictly correct. There is a very simple way to upgrade this way if you go past th...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

[ That all being said, I guess I'm wasting time responding to your message because you apparently are the snowflake who sees the need to go running away. No, no need to run away, just no need to watch ‘certain people’ wasting electrons with endless complaints because they can’t simply bookmark a pa...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Don't waste your breath here. I check the blog periodically and, as usual, there have been no updates regarding Version 3 in almost a year. For some, the natural thing to do is come into the forums to see if there is any news. If you have the nerve to ask about it you can expect to be attacked and ...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

I can't comment on the Mac/Dell battle, but here is my experience with a Dell 5593 purchased in January 2020: First thing I did was download the Dell 5593 service manual. Everything is user-replaceable, and I mean everything. It even has a vacant drive bay for another SSD, which I immediately insta...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Also, if someone needs a working version of Scrivener 3 then switch to Mac. This isn't necessarily feasible for a lot of people. I know for me, cost and storage are major considerations. Your basic MacBook Air in Australia (where I live) costs $1600-$2000 - it's expensive! Not to mention neither of...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

That's nonsense. There are Papyrus and Patchwork. Both of them are without any doubt more mature than Scrivener, Just because you don't know any Scrivener style applications for Windows that doesn't mean they don't exist. You quoted him out of context (deliberately?). He said he was unaware of more...

Re: Scrivener Pricing for Regions

Am I missing something here? How much are these licences? My wife originally purchased Scrivener 2 for something like £5.99 from the App Store. I've just bought Scrivener 3 which is £47 (although I got a 20% discount). How much are these licences outside of the UK if they're equivalent to up to 25%...

Re: Scrivener Pricing for Regions

How much are these licences outside of the UK if they're equivalent to up to 25% of peoples income? $77 in Australia. So roughly the same as here then. Cheap as chips really when you consider what you get for your money. On current exchange and the difference in VAT/GST, it's as close to the same a...

Re: Issue with backing up Scrivener back-ups in the cloud

25 backups here, zipped to One Drive plus a robust local backup.

Haven’t managed to find a Win backup system that works as well as Time Machine - anyone?

Re: Please finally add iCloud Sync

The problem with Dropbox is and always was security: I am not allowed to install it on my Mac. So please look into Synching with iCloud Dropbox security is pretty much in line with every other cloud offering with possible exception of iCloud. I am aware that Apple don’t allow installation of any ot...

Re: Project on USB - working between computers

My suggestion, ditch the thumb drive, they are slow, easy to misplace etc. Get a 2.5” SSD drive or better yet, M2 drive. They are readily available these days though you probably have to buy the drive and enclosure separately on eBay or similar in the case of the m2. They both work just like an exte...

Re: Menu text in Dark Mode is doubled up on itself

A setting isn't anything that needs code tests, so it doesn't matter if you're on a very first build or a release candidate build. It either displays correctly or it doesn't. So it can be altered at any time. That may well be true, however given the rush to take care of the remaining big bugs befor...
