Re: What Version to Download on Windows

The beta is a "release candidate," so it's feature complete and believed to be stable. A number of people have been using it as their main version for a while now. If you're a new user, I'd recommend starting with the beta. That will save you from having to climb the learning curve twice, ...

We've tried that. People just start new threads. Which other people respond to. And around we go.

Re: MSword/ Office 365 update and Scrivener

Truly bizarre. If you're able to make it happen again, could you send us the project? Send it to our support address here:

Re: MSword/ Office 365 update and Scrivener

Well, Scrivener hasn't changed. Have you contacted Microsoft support? Word shouldn't care what you do outside of its window.

Re: A frustrated newbie here ...

I believe the search delay is an attempt to thwart spammers, who will link bomb a whole series of threads in quick succession. It will go away once you've posted enough to establish yourself as a real human. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Reviewing the tutorial first is good advice. Scrivener is n...

Re: iOS 14 and Scrivener

FWIW, I won't be upgrading my own devices just yet.

Re: battery drain

What's in the project? Using Scrivener to view a video in the Research folder is a different task from composing text in Pages.

Re: Some corkboard and index card formatting questions

I think the "accent color" option may be new in Catalina. I don't remember it in older versions of Mac OS.

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

hiring a manager would be cheaper than keep delaying. No. Hiring a manager costs money that you have to pay. The delay causes a reduction in income. Those two are not equal, not even in accounting. You have to pay "x" developers por "y" months to get the product. Delaying will m...

Re: Question about timing of updates to the Beta

Backing up your settings before installing a new version is never a bad idea. Simply replacing Scrivener should not damage your project, which is stored separately. If it does, that's a bug and should be reported. That said, making an extra backup before any update is always good practice. Katherine

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Firing the development team in the middle of a project is unlikely to improve the ultimate delivery time, as the new team then needs to come up to speed.

We do not comment on internal personnel matters.

Re: External File link to Specific Page Number

This is a function of the software used to review the external file. For example, DevonThink can create page links inside PDF files, but Preview can't.

When it's supported, the syntax is typically something like "?page=4" at the end of the file link.

Re: Using Collections

I didn't realize completely what I wanted until we started talking about it. What I'm really seeking is a way to have the original document displayed next to the revised document, fashioned like the vertical split. On the left, original. On the right, the re-write. Once you split the editor, you ca...
