Re: Old Linux version vs current Windows version under Wine

Sorry, but I am very wary of this. WineHQ is a bit cautious about Winetricks, more or less saying that if you use it, you're on your own. And, since I have a working version of Scrivener under Wine and the v1.9.12 breaks things so thoroughly, I shall note your solution, but I have a special bargepo...

Re: Old Linux version vs current Windows version under Wine

Updating: v1.9.9 did load successfully under Wine, and the Licence activation worked. What were the differences? 1: The working system used Esellerate 2: It requested the "Serial Number Name", not an email address. And it all just worked, no problems. I would suggest that you do not upgra...

Re: Old Linux version vs current Windows version under Wine

I haven't had a problem with the new version converting (and backing up) old projects. :) One gotcha is that it doesn't fully exit, so you might have to clean up running WINE processes after closing Scrivener. I start from command line, that way I can kill it on the command line after. (ctrl-C, usua...

Re: Camp NaNo (July)

It's easy to overshoot with April and July, I found. I do like the format better, though. I can't say my work is any good, but it's certainly a good exercise to work regularly every day. :)

Re: 32bit vs 64bit

Oh yeah, you need dotnet 4.5 to get it to register. Winetricks will install it, since there are some tweaks needed. You should be able to go back to your default windows version (7 or 10) after it's registered.

Re: Beta 2.9.0.18, 64-bit, Duplication of titles in Scrivening mode

A couple of clarifying questions: 1. Were you editing the title *while* it was in Scrivenings mode? Or while it was in single document mode? 2. How were you editing the title of the document, in the Binder, in the Header, in the Inspector? 1.) I couldn't edit the title in Scrivenings mode. I was in...

Beta 2.9.0.18, 64-bit, Duplication of titles in Scrivening mode

So if I have some sort of markup in a document that's top level of a section, then edit a word in the title, the title will duplicate itself in Scivenings mode. It'll keep duplicating it, if I edit the edit. (To trigger it, don't completely erase the title. Just delete and add a word to it.) Switchi...

Re: 32bit vs 64bit

You might want to try Scrivener under Proton, as well. Steam has a vested interest in 32-bit support, since a lot of older games are also 32-bit. It's a reasonable assumption to make that they would figure out some means of 32-bit support going forward.

Re: audio with scrivener under wine

I exclusively use Scrivener under WINE these days. I've never gotten the video to play properly, although I've got the snapshot sound when making/creating a snapshot.

Re: Thanks for the update regarding release!

Oh hai. When I read the README of the Scapple update, I saw the phrase "Windows/Linux dev for Scapple." Leftover, or do I have something to be excited about in the future? :)

1. Some forum users (possibly ageing, and some open about having conditions that don't always welcome change) who are happy with things as they are. Yeah, and?

Re: Corkboard Issue

Or do you mean separate lines of cards? You'll need to use freeform corkboard, in that case.
