Re: [JH] Wine: Selection text invisible against background in two dialogs

Took my own advice to upgrade WINE, so I'm on 3.10 staging with pba, even. While Scrivener is a bit faster with PBA, it doesn't do anything for the Assign Layout dialogue. 89% sure it's a bug on their end.

Re: [JH] Wine: Selection text invisible against background in two dialogs

Oh hang on. You're in the "Assign Section to Layout" dialogue?

Yeah, this looks like a bug, AFAIK. Or, rather, I don't think it's a problem on our end, per se.

Re: [JH] Wine: Selection text invisible against background in two dialogs

Using WINE, here, too, and I'm not reproducing it, either. Do you have composting or special effects turned on for your desktop? Also, I'd recommend not using XP as a version, or playonlinux, since it often suggests outdated versions of WINE. If you're using an updated version of WINE (which you sho...

Re: Scrivener not exiting cleanly? [2.9.0.2 and 2.9.0.3, 64-bit]

So this weekend I was using Scrivener, closed it, killed the process, but tried to launch another WINE application in a different WINEPREFIX. The error I got with the 2nd program was that devenum.dll was still in use. Does this help any?

Re: [JH] Compatibility between Scrivener 3 Mac & Windows

Oh, hey, is this the old bug with duplicate files of 0 size? I haven't experienced it, personally, with Scrivener 3. That is, if you go into the zipped project, are there a bunch of files that are 0 bytes and exact duplicates of the real documents? You can fix it by deleting the 0 ones.

Re: [LH3034] 2.9.0.5, 64 bit. Scrivenings view, changing documents causes crash

Would a project that works be helpful? I can't reproduce this one, and I'm using a project converted from Scrivener 1.9.7.

ETA: I just updated as of about 5 minutes ago, so I'm not sure if I"m using the buggy version?

Re: [NB] Overall Impression: I Would Not Upgrade

Respectfully, it isn't "bitching" when it's an accessibility issue. There are issues others have pointed out in better detail (since they deal with those issues, and I don't) about Scrivener and the accessible Windows themes. It's like calling someone's need for a curb (or kerb, if you'd r...

Re: So far, so good!

Personally, I wouldn't use such an old version of WINE. The newest versions have a lot of improvements that older ones don't have. I'm using wine-staging 3.7, and I haven't had any problems.

Re: [NB] Overall Impression: I Would Not Upgrade

Question: will the Windows version of Scrivener be able to load themes like the OSX one does? That would go a long way towards alleviating some of the UI concerns.

Re: Issue Compiling with 2.9.0.4

I'm using WINE (staging 3.6), and I haven't had that issue. I had an issue compiling to PDF once, but not since. (That is, I can't reproduce it, but someone else on Windows was having the same issue consistently.) If you can reproduce it, give steps, because there's an issue with compile that's caus...

Re: [JH] 2904 under Crossover on Mac and Footnotes

Exit error: seems to be any project, since 3.9.0.2. The only time I have had Scrivener exit cleanly was when it crashed on me. I can't make it exit cleanly if I kill the process while it's running, though. I'm using the 64-bit version of Scrivener these days. I was using wine-staging 2.17 when it st...
