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

Fixed it!


You gotta wipe, though!

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.

Re: New Beta version via Update-option OK?

Granted, I'm usually a bit cavalier with such things, but I've been updating with the update function for awhile. It works. I figured that if it doesn't work, that's something they would want to know about at this point. (That is, people are going to use the function, and better to find out now that...

Re: best option for running Scrivener on Mint 19?

You can also install dotnet45 with winetricks, and it'll activate the new version.

I use Scapple, WINE, and XFCE. No problems here. I'm not using compton, however.

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...
