Re: Scrivener/Wine memory issue

It could also be a patch that staging has that stock WINE doesn't. You can see if there are any processes sticking around by running "lsof | egrep "wine" after closing scrivener. I'd always recommend using the most current version of WINE, unless the thing you're running (like an olde...

Re: Scrivener/Wine memory issue

Which version of wine are you using? Around 4.15 (staging), it started exiting cleanly again. (Also exits cleanly with 4.19-staging.) I would not recommend anything below 4.15.

Yeah, it's a schlep. I thought her shop was in like Federal Way/Tacoma. (I lived in Seattle for a good 10 years. :) )

Re: The price of tea in China

A friend of mine from Seattle opened up a tea shop. It would be nice to try really good tea sometime--I'm told much of what is sold in the US as tea is crap. Drop me a PM with the name -- my wife is a huge tea fancier and we will go check it out. I lied. They're in Burien: https://phoenixteashop.co...

Re: October 2019 Beta freezes on playonlinux when dragging and dropping text files into Scrivener

I just tried using wine's explorer (run from the same wineprefix as Scrivener.) No problems. Are y'all trying to use whatever desktop file manager? Because I don't think that has ever worked with Scrivener.

Re: Beta Expires Soon

If October 31 rolls around and midnight is approaching, open Scrivener and keep it open. It should be OK the next day. You should be able to finagle your computer's date, as well, but I don't know if they closed that loophole. :) Or just download the latest beta; even simpler! :wink: That works, to...

Re: Next Beta/RC/Version 3?

If you're really concerned, open Scrivener the night before and keep it open, so you've got it on October 1.

Re: Activation Problem

You need to install dotnet 4.5. Once you do and enter your key, it'll act like it's hanging. Close Scrivener. Open it, and if you check to see if it's registered, it'll give you an option to deactivate, which would indicate that it's activated. I'm also using wine-staging 4.15.

Looks like Humberto is headed towards Vic-K land. Time to stock up on booze?

Fixed it!

Re: Scrivener not exiting cleanly? [2.9.0.2 and 2.9.0.3, 64-bit]

This is definitely a WINE regression that appears to be fixed with 4.15 (staging, at least.)

Re: Bug: Compile Formatting issue in PDF using Scrivener built in format

Not seeing this one, either. Could the PDF file be fine and it be a bug in the program you're using? XPDF and default settings, everything is OK.
