How do I turn on Dark Mode? I've been poking around in the menus and can't seem to find it.


Under Options, in the startup tab. :)

FYI, the new beta has a dark mode that is freaking awesome. It's solved all the UI issues I was having with WINE's default theme conflicting with Scrivener.

Re: The plan: Ubuntu wine scrivener

If you're using the new 2.9/3 beta, I'd highly recommend a 64-bit prefix. Scapple should run under it, as well, but 64-bit Scrivener is much faster than the 32-bit one.

Re: I have not been here for a while.

I, for one, would support a rebranding to "Poetry and Plonk."

Re: I have not been here for a while.

I haven't been doing much writing or creative work. A stint at a content farm kept the wolf from the door, but burned me out. Getting back in the swing of things would do wonders, but the ennui of not producing is strong. A resolution, perhaps? I do miss the regulars around here, that's for certain.

Could you use multimarkdown and LaTeX to do hyphenation formatting? Is MMD in yet? :)

Hrm. Could very well be a WINE thing.

Beta 11, 64-bit, no Scratch pad shortcut?

I'm doing ctrl-shift-zero. (ctrl-shift-o brings up keywords.) It doesn't crash Scrivener anymore, but it also doesn't bring up the Scratch Pad. I don't currently have that configuration used anywhere else. (The only other program I had open at the same time was Chrome, but it's not used there, eithe...

Re: Document printing is all blank (outline printing is OK)

I just came here to report this one, as well. If I do "print current document," it's blank. I know I've printed in versions previous to the most current one, too.

Re: Scrivener and Scapple

I think they're planning on updating Scapple to work with Scrivener 3.0? I seem to recall something about it.

Re: How much money would you require to release a new Linux version?

I think us geek types do tend to cause umbrage, at first. Then again, are the social geek fallacies a tautology? Are all geeks doomed to have rotten understanding of social cues? Speaking for myself, I tend to overcompensate, and then cause situations out of that. (Knowing I don't catch cues very we...

Re: Preventing a Crash

SAme with what others said. I'm usually using WINE, and if there's a bug, I get whacked with it. I've never encountered this one before. Have you checked your hard drive? Is your RAM OK? Something sounds corrupted, whether project file, failing hard drive, or RAM that isn't quite right. I'd check th...

I leave it at that.


Looks like I need to do more research on systemd. And kick Pat Volkerding a few bucks, when I can.

Re: How much money would you require to release a new Linux version?

Unfortunately, I was a SysV boy -- grew up on Solaris 2.x Linux has put me totally off my feed in the last few years with the rush to systemd. P**terring is a blight on the Linux community, as is his software. Hah. I use Slackware. No argument from me. (Without pulse. I suspect in the next version ...

Re: How much money would you require to release a new Linux version?

Am composer. Can confirm that landlords don't take "exposure," either. Slightly off topic, my favorite observation along these lines is, "Exposure is what you die of when you can't pay your rent." Katherine Pretty much. Or, as we used to say back in the Scary Devil Monastery: &q...
