Re: Will there be a new RC?

With the Qt bug making Scrivener crash when checking for updates, I don't think we'll see a full release until that's sorted. (And it's a bug on the Qt end of things, so they're pretty much at the mercy of the Qt devs.)

Re: RC14 Closes after 17 Seconds

Add to that, the fact that the 32-bit version runs fine, while the 64-bit version does not tells us that it's probably not the AV, either--If it were tripping that program for 64-bit, it ought to do the same for the 32-bit version as well, no? No. Two totally different sets of compiled code. They a...

Re: Unable to download latest beta version as connection closes

What you can do is download the installer, uninstall RC13, then install the new one. You don't need to go through automatic updates--it's currently bugged for some.

Re: RC14 Closes after 17 Seconds

It's not the antivirus. It's a bug in the library behind the Scrivener GUI...there's a 4 page thread about RC13 closing after 17 seconds half a page down.

Re: RC14 Closes after 17 Seconds

This is the Qt bug we were getting with RC13? Disable automatic updates, and Scrivener should work. If you can't go into preferences and unselect check for automatic updates in 11 seconds, unplug from the network.

Re: Closes after 17 seconds

Happy holidays! @ The guys who are experiencing this crash: Do you run Scrivener under Wine, or do you have anything Linux related when you run Scrivener and experience the crash? The bug was initially reported as a Linux only bug, but Scrivener for Windows crashes exactly at the same place as repor...

Re: Closes after 17 seconds

Oooof. Seems like it's always a Qt problem. And now that we're on the high-dpi one by default, no wonder everything looks better!

Re: Closes after 17 seconds

The .bat file didn't work, but I started Scrivener invoking "--log." I didn't see anything interesting, although it slowed my computer waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down after I checked for an update. (I've got 16GB of RAM and a Ryzen 5...Scrivener shouldn't be hanging my system.) I closed Scrivener, ...

Re: Closes after 17 seconds

For what it's worth, I'm not crashing, but I'm not getting the update dialogue when checking for an update, either. (This is on both the prior version and rc 13, both 64-bit.)

Re: A heads up on Crossover

The people at Crossover are very helpful in my experience. Asking them to look into a problem with a beta doesn't hurt - also since it may help with the further development of Wine as a whole. Don't tell them it's a problem with Scrivener. Tell them it's a problem with the Qt text-to-speech engine ...

Re: Compile - Bad Alloc

My test project that I use for trying to reproduce scrivener bugs has a picture in it, and it compiled fine. What format is the picture you were using? (mIne's a jpg.)

I could be just the Mac version: In the menu bar, click Scrivener -> cmd click -> about Scrivener will produce a pop up window with selected quotes from farmous writers.

Re: Heads up on wine-staging 5.19

Works again with 5.20. I still don't think it's my build environment, since I built 5.18 and 5.19 within minutes of each other, same environment, same everything. 5.18 worked and 5.19 didn't.

Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

The one option that could have work was absolute silence. NDA for all users/tech support that have access. Then only announce it when you are clear on delivery date. But then you'd still have the same questions "have you abandoned Scrivener for windows?" I can see why some places use clos...
