Re: Scrivener 64 bit for Windows

There is a 64-bit version! It just happens to be in beta at the moment. :D It works pretty great, though. Tons faster than the 32-bit one.

Re: Compiler compiles for PDF, refuses to print PDF

No problems, here, and I usually get hit with every nasty bug. Do you have anything in the file besides text?

Re: Head's up on wine-staging 5.19

Yeah, it's a regression. 5.18-staging works.

Heads up on wine-staging 5.19

Just an FYI, the installer wouldn't work for me on wine-staging 5.19. Scrivener, itself, would run just fine, but not the installer. (So auto-update didn't work.) I'm not sure what's going on, but wine-staging 5.16 works. I suspect it's a regression, and WINE at the moment is a bit of a mess. (See a...

Re: Scrivener hangs with two open projects

I'm not able to reproduce this...I had 3 of my biggest projects open, one of them displaying the entire manuscript in Scrivenings mode. No hang or crash. Do you have a lot of pictures? How much RAM do you have?

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

I’m beginning to think that maybe the smartest answer to the question in the thread title would have been - Yes! That would have put an end to all questions of when it’s gonna be ready. Next time L&L decides to make an updated version, don’t tell anyone. If you release a Mac version 4 and someo...

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Also, if someone needs a working version of Scrivener 3 then switch to Mac. Migrating from Windows into a Mac is easy, and there are no major differences in the functionality. Just my opinion. Yeah, no. Apple is probably the most proprietary company out there still extant. There are major differenc...

Re: Fall of Western Civilization, Was Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

In high school (a very long time ago) I was taught that there is a legal principle according to which one person's right to extend their arm ends where another person’s nose begins (sources traced here: https://quoteinvestigator.com/2011/10/15/liberty-fist-nose/ ). And we all know that words can an...

Re: Fall of Western Civilization, Was Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

Even in the US, there are limits to freedom of speech. Like the old test in Schenk vs. US that you can't shout "fire" in a crowded theater. Private individuals and organizations have no compunction to support your freedom of speech either. I think a lot of times the notion of free speech i...

pigfender, I wondered about that too. I wanted you to be right. Alas, Devin the Voice of Reality strikes again. I live in the home of Starbucks, and this thread got me curious about it.

The normal one. I can remap the scratch pad to meta-shift-zero, and it comes up, no problem. just not ctrl-shift-zero.

Re: [JH] [2.9.9.10, 64-bit] Scratch pad crash

Nothing is currently set to use ctrl-shift-zero. Ctrl-shift-zero did crash previously, but was fixed in a later beta. (It's crashing again.) I can access the scratch pad via menu just fine. (Although with the dark theme, the white text against yellow is unreadable, although that's an easy fix.) I bo...

Re: Update prompts to restart

Weird. I'm using windows 7 compatibility by default. Next time there's a beta update, I"ll switch to windows 10 and see what happens.

[JH] [2.9.9.10, 64-bit] Scratch pad crash

I switched to using Windows 1.x shortcuts.
I tried the keyboard shortcut for the scratch pad (ctrl-shift-zero)
Scrivener crashed. (No error or core dump.)

Other shortcuts seem to be working fine.

(And with some different formatting, this could almost be a William Carlos Williams poem.)
