Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

I don't speak any German, but can anybody confirm that Patchwork costs 130+euros? That's a lot of bones. On the hand they have already released their V3 for both MAC and WINDOWS.... Ja, ich denke das ist richtig. (courtesy google translate) :mrgreen: Price drops to 99 euros if you don't want the gr...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

One alternative would be to use the Export -> Files function to export the entire Binder from Scrivener 3, and then import the resulting files and folders into Scrivener 1.9. That would preserve the Binder hierarchy, but lose associated metadata. Another alternative would be to ask a friendly Mac S...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

A piece of software which has taken a dedicated C++ team a decade to get to the current level of polish - and then it can't do half of what Scrivener can do. A perfect example of the amount of effort required to develop something of this kind for Windows. It literally takes re-implementing the Coco...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

Thanks for the explanation, gerdio. You had mentioned not being able to open beta projects in v1.9. Kind of reading between the lines here, but do you mean you're tired of the beta update cycle and want to return to v1.9? If so, it's been a while since I've tried it, but I think you can just drag a...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

Thank you for sharing. I haven't seen many other apps that try to do what Scrivener does. Papyrus Author seems like a very nice app, although the pro version, at $14.99/MO, is vastly more expensive then Scrivener. (And you'll need the pro version if you want typewriter mode. :) ) Patchwork seems li...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

You quoted him out of context (deliberately?). He said he was unaware of more than a handful of Windows equiv’s. You quoted two, which is certainly far less than a handful. I found Papyrus which does look powerful, however to get all the best features you have to pay the equivalent of a full Scrive...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

The number of Scrivener style applications for Windows are, indeed, an indicator of how hard it is to develop Scrivener style applications for Windows. There are lots of them for MacOS, and even a rather hefty chunk for iOS. For Android, I know of none, and for Windows, I'd be hard pressed to name ...
