Re: Community Supported!

QT4 is old! Be better to port the Windows and Linux version to Electron - much less development overhead especially for cross-platform deployment.

Please keep the Mac and iOS version native though!

Re: any way to batch update reference links???

AmberV's suggestion of using FIND and SED (with some GREP) and directly manipulating the XML would be my first choice. Obviously not for the faint of heart though and it requires familiarity with UNIX/Linux tools and the CLI. It's a shame Scrivener doesn't have direct scripting support but the Manag...

Re: Page Layout/DLP for print options...

Actually I just checked and for non-commercial use it is free (good for academics and students at least), and yes nearly $500 for desktop commercial use. They do have a sister company or something that does online conversion, perhaps that means you can hammer out a version on non-commercial prince ...

Re: Page Layout/DLP for print options...

My preferred solution though is to write in Scrivener, then export to Markdown -> HTML+CSS -> PDF using PrinceXML. I thought Prince cost a gazillion $$$? I love the idea of having a super powerful CSS engine for layout, and I've seen very good reports from everyone that has used Prince; a successor...

Re: Page Layout/DLP for print options...

Pages isn't too shabby for a light-weight desktop publishing program. It's perfectly fine for the internal book block of a novel. My preferred solution though is to write in Scrivener, then export to Markdown -> HTML+CSS -> PDF using PrinceXML Prince produces PDFs that are, in my opinion, every bit ...

Re: iCloud Drive

That's because iOS is consumer-oriented and wants a simple solution that meets all *technical* needs. Standing up your own file server and making it securely available to devices not on the local WiFi is, while a solvable problem, not a problem that most of Apple's target audience *wants* to solve....

That's the kicker. Linux does a great job serving content using NFS, Samba, DLNA or even DAAP. However most iOS apps worth using only ever use iCloud or Dropbox APIs (or occasionally Webdav).

Re: iCloud Drive

I'm looking at setting up a NAS using Synology or QNAP as I could also use it for backing up other stuff. Unless I only sync from home, the problems of incomplete sync when done via the Uni WiFil network might also remain, depending on the sync software these systems use. Makes you appreciate just ...

Re: iCloud Drive

I use both iCloud and Dropbox (9GB of acquired space). Might I suggest a little shuffling around. Since iCloud is much cheaper than Dropbox, why move stuff to iCloud and slim down Dropbox for use with Scrivener and other apps that don't yet play with iCloud. For example... I pay for 50GB ($1.50 AUD)...

Re: Keyboards for Ipad Mini 2?

I agree with Catherine about the footprint. The mini is too narrow for my hands to type comfortably. I use a couple of different keyboards with mine. At home I a large logitech keyboard with a built in tablet stand. It lets you pair with three devices so I share it with my wife (for her iPad Air 2) ...

Re: Scrivener for Mac on Linux?

Hope indeed! Digging into the project I reckon Apple will abandon macOS by the time Darling is able to run a graphical Cocoa app. It's an interesting project but Cocoa != Win32. There's an awful lot of APIs (including AppKit, which they haven't started yet) they will have to rewrite. That's an enorm...

Re: Version 1.01 has arrived well

Super pleased with this update. Template support is a huge plus for me - no more workarounds now with Editorial. Scrivener recognised my templates folder in my project automatically and it's working very well!
