Re: Underwhelmed But Optimistic

Downloaded the newest exe and the nanofile today to play around. And I noticed the forms...in the word processor. Please excuse me while I have slight seizure: Gah, my graphic designer instinct went squitch. Forms shouldn't be in a word processor without proper form elements. /end seizure K I feel b...

Re: Underwhelmed But Optimistic

I'm not a fan of any system that uses a database which as no way of accessing data outside of the software for those very reasons. It's also why I stop using software if it is no longer developed, and upgrade data storage all the time. Can't loose that data. Is there a plan for autobackup (taking cu...

Re: Underwhelmed But Optimistic

scribed your needs better, someone could point out a solution you’re not aware of or a workaround. On that same note I like seeing my outline and tree view always together ala ywriter. If I understand what you mean, just open the Outline mode in the alternate editor. (If you wanted to, you could sh...

Re: Underwhelmed But Optimistic

I doubt you could name one application dating from 2006 (when Scrivener betas first went out) that allowed you to assign a synopsis to each document which could then be used in a built-in outliner to move around items in the draft, and which also allowed you to store any file type right within the ...

Re: Underwhelmed But Optimistic

I'm trying Scrivener now. I'm going to use it for Nano and for the current novel I'm finishing up. And then I'll see if I prefer it to LSB. But Scrivener is very similar to LSB in that it gives you ways to do everything you need or want to do but it doesn't necessarily have a set way to do it. You'...

Lock up When Spliting the window [ADDITIONAL INFO]

When I click on one of the splitting windows icons in the top right corner in a new project, the program becomes unavailable (Twirling circle meaning busy). And it doesn't stop (left it for about an hour) until I Cntrl alt delete it into oblivion. I got no error messages. It's happened a few times. ...

Re: Underwhelmed But Optimistic

Is the word count column in outliner not working for you?


Aha! I had to go back twice to find it. The column was hidden off screen. That information works just fine.

Underwhelmed But Optimistic

As presented at this time, I find the Windows version very underwhelming. The current version is pretty much yWriter 5 rearranged and lacking some key things. I understand that some of the following is to be added eventually and probably not in the current release. However I find this lacking enough...

Re: Using mac and windows versions

The dropbox issues will be seen on any "package" type file that requires synchronized states across multiple files. MS seems to be moving to this method in several of the new office apps. I expect we will start to see it as more developers leverage the MS internals and frameworks that are...

Re: Scrivener for Windows...

I'm planning to check out the beta for NaNo. I've played with Scrivener before but it didn't really work how I would. I figure this is a good time to try it again on with the computers I use regularly. Right now I use yWriter, which I'm pretty happy with but I like checking out new writing software.
