Re: NiaD X

Mere recipe? Mere recipe?!! I should think some of the ingredients might take offence to that. Having spoken to several of your key ingredients, they feel it would be best for you to concentrate on your marvellous vegetarian recipes. In that case I’m putting dibs on the recipe for Stone Soup. I've ...

Re: Is Scrivener for PC worth it?

oh yes, it is, every penny of it. No question about it. I have compared to other similar apps, and this is just so user friendly and intuitive to use Absolutely! It's also worth remembering you don't have to use all its capabilities - spend weeks learning it - to get great value from it. At its mos...

File menu rendering problem

Sorry if this is being a bit picky, but 'Save and Rebuild Search Indexes' is too long.

Re: Please, test “Check for Updates” in RC17

Under Wine in Cinnamon 19.03 32bit
RC17 to 18 update worked beautifully until its final request to reboot. It didn't, but also didn't freeze.
After manual reboot it's fine.

Re: NiaD X

Hey, with a robot space pirate protagonist I won’t have to fret about my character’s motivation. Why everyone seems to think AI's are going to be bland and benevolent escapes me. They'll be as equally fubar as we are - only with less restraint and more processing power... especially space pirate ro...

Re: NiaD X

Why are some mugs in yellow, and others not?
Is this some deep-dark secret, known only to a small cabal of NIAD cognoscenti, or what? :twisted:

RC11 Import problem (Wine on Ubuntu).

I tried to import a .DOC file into the binder.
I got: Could not convert file - Error: Unknown Error.

Same thing with DOCX but not with a PDF, which imported perfectly.

Re: RC11 - Compile problem (Wine on Ubuntu)

Nope. I tried compiling to ODT, DOCX and DOC. Scrivener seemed to render something, but the file didn't appear.
Yet compiling to PDF wasn't a problem. Odd.
Perhaps I'm missing a library somewhere... or it's a glitch in Wine?

I'm running Ubuntu Studio - which runs Ubuntu 18.04.

RC11 - Compile problem (Wine on Ubuntu)

I'm not sure If you want bugs found via a wine install, but just in case:
I tried to save a single document via compile to ODT. It went through the process, but didn't produce a file.
I changed the compile output to PDF and it rendered without a problem.

I'm so glad to have worked on the book this year. :D It's such a great writing exercise. I look forward to it each year. I do have a question, about the conclusion with...
