Re: Scrivener crashes every time I try to open a previously saved project

but Scriv 3 is mentioned, i.e the Mac version Where? (I added the emphasis below.) I have been using Scrivener for 3 years or so and I have many saved projects in this platform. Today I went to open an old project and scrivener crashed on me. This happened again and again 3 times . I mean, the user...

Re: RC14: formatting a List causes Scrivener to crash

[As an aside, I wished I hadn't interfered with the installation. My Scrivener entry in the Start Menu doesn't work now - it just opens \AppData\Local\Scrivener\Scrivener\ in file explorer instead of launching \AppData\Local\Scrivener\Scrivener.exe. I had to install a second time and accept the off...

Re: Problem adding fonts with iOS 14

If I remember correctly, there was a change in iOS 14 that affected a lot of third-party font manager apps.

See this thread for more details:

Re: RC14: formatting a List causes Scrivener to crash

I know that quite often on Windows, another day and a fresh reboot gets rid of problems - but NOT on this one. Today, three successive applications of 'next list style' using meta+> causes Scrivener to close down abruptly with no warning. Other combinations of meta+> and meta+< produce the same res...

Re: How to forward incoming email into Scrivener

There's not much organisation in my database, I free-search what I need. I don't get through a day without referring to it at least two or three times, often more. I've taken to doing the same thing with my email. There is my Inbox for anything I haven't yet dealt with, a couple of temporary specia...

Re: Unable to Uninstall Scrivener

If that's the case, man is that just another example of the inconsistency of Windows across different installations. I've literally seen different system behaviors between the same model of computer under the same admin regime, with supposedly the same software patches installed. It's like Windows ...

Re: Hybrid approach for iCloud syncing

Hmm. I'm not sure how much access to the iOS "file system" iOS Scrivener has. So I don't know if it would be able to do something like this. At the very least, moving a single zipped file around with Files would potentially create much less confusion -- and support tickets -- than the cur...

Re: Scrivener for Windows

Under the hood, a lot more software than you think is doing uninstall/install updated version (all wrapped behind a pretty installer routine that hides it from you) rather than trying to patch existing binaries/files. What I am referring to, quite obviously, is the USER being forced to uninstall so...

Re: Hybrid approach for iCloud syncing

Isn't this just the File -> Backup -> Backup To command? That's what inspired it, yes, but no -- the way I am thinking about it would be more of a toggle to Scrivener to tell it to take the extra step of unpacking the project from .ZIP when opened, work with the unpacked files (in their temporary l...

Re: [JH] Composition Mode Page Fade

I am using the 64 bit version. (not sure which one that is.) There are two versions of the 64-bit version -- by default now in RC14 the Hi-DPI version is downloaded, which uses a slightly newer version of the underlying Qt libraries to help Scrivener's display scale better on hi-resolution displays...

Hybrid approach for iCloud syncing

I'm probably going to hate myself very quickly for even throwing this out there, but a recent discussion in the iOS Scrivener forum made me think of this potential. And if I can think of it, someone else can too. What about a per-project option to ZIP archive the project, thus making it compatible w...
