Re: Scratch pad bug with new documents? (2.9.0.8 beta, 64-bit)

Okay, I'm gonna stick my neck out and be the dummy in the classroom who asks the stupid question... Where did you find that scratchpad? Ever since I read this thread, I've been looking under every menu and every little icon. I am unable to find such a thing. I'll head over to my corner now... Pam T...

[LH3142] Scratch pad bug with new documents? (2.9.0.8 beta, 64-bit)

So if I bring up the scratch pad (thanks for tweaking the UI elements, btw!) and select the plus sign to make a new document, I'll get an error: Screenshot_2018-08-03_12-24-01.jpg Close out of the error, no new file. Close scratch pad, and bring it up again, there will be a new document created: Scr...

Re: Microsoft's Accuracy when Aiming at Their Feet Is Unparalleled!

Ah yeah, Adobe doesn't do very well with WINE, or hadn't the last time I tried. Granted, it was over 5 years ago, so things may be quite different. Sibelius and Finale are industry-standard for my field, and while I'm fine with lilypond, there's an awful lot of "just upload your Sibelius/Finale...

Re: Microsoft's Accuracy when Aiming at Their Feet Is Unparalleled!

If you don't want to go OSX, but want to use Scrivener, so far the beta of Scrivener 3 works out of the box via WINE. There's one glitch with it not exiting cleanly, but lsof | egrep "wine" will find the PID that's hanging on, and you can kill it that way. (It's also an issue with Crossove...

Re: Interrobangs and octothorpes!

Oh cool! Will have to check this one out. I'm always on the prowl for good podcasts.

"Very Bad Words" is hysterical, but also really interesting. (And not remotely worksafe, unless you work for yourself.)

ETA: Wait, I already listen to that one. :P

Re: All digits (finger/toes-n-eyes) crossed for The Wild Boars team

It's actually pretty common for people to live as Buddhist monks there. (I don't think women are allowed to join up in that particular tradition?) It's not a forever thing, either. Kind of like a spiritual gap year. :) I was director of a language school in Bangkok for 3½ years in the early 1970s. ...

Yup, I am. But I'm also not writing anything currently that requires absolute security, like a dissertation.

Yes, indeedy. One can hope that his memory's a blessing. Yep! Whenever the Boars score a goal, Saman's loved ones can justifiably claim that, "Our Saman helped score that goal!" :wink: Wish the kids had t-shirts or something. Shipping would be twice as much as the shirt, but I'd buy one!

Do I? Oh yeah ... more than you can imagine.
A truly heartening experience. But so terribly sad about Saman Kuman's death.

Re: No button option for 'no split'

If memory serves, it was the same way in 1.9. Does take some getting used to. :)
