Beta has expired

Hi. The current beta has now expired as it's Tuesday here. I've preordered so I'm all paid up and I'm not sure if I should just download the Nano beta so I can keep writing or if the program will come out any second and I should just bide my time... Thanks for all your hard work. We are appreciating...

Re: Cross-Platform working: Two Scriv versions

I've seen this asked and answered somewhere else on the site but that was between Mac and Windows. Because the ports are very different and a lot of work has going into the different versions individually, the answer was no. But Scrivener are offering generous discounts for doing Nanowrimo (http://w...

Re: NaNo Scrivener code question

If you saved the code you got directly after Nano finished and didn't go back again, then it's the old code. New ones were posted on the winner's page after the old ones expired.

Re: Scrivener Windows beta crashing on opening

Have just realised my beta is not the most current so this may be the issue. I'll download the newest one now.

Re: Scrivener Windows beta crashing on opening

Hi Jennifer, Answers: Not the first time I've loaded since installing, just the first time yesterday. Options are set to open most recent project - I don't get a new project panel on start. I'm using the main current beta, not the Nano one, - 0.0.35 I was also running an irc client and probably had ...

Re: Synching projects across Windows

That's all very helpful, thanks. And thanks for making it so modular - being able to move projects around easily is great and also means that you can archive them out of the active folder when done. I really like that. My one further question was about moving projects between platforms... can you op...

Scrivener Windows beta crashing on opening

Hi guys. Wouldn't have mentioned this one except that a friend and I are word warring and she had the same thing happen to her. I just opened Scrivener for the first time today on my desktop (Vista) and the start up pages came up but Scrivener stopped responding and I had to force quit to get out of...

Re: Synching projects across Windows

Your plan is fine. I strongly recommend that you make dated project backups and keep these around, especially if you're going to be overwriting your "master" folder on the flash drive regularly--it would not be happy if you ended up accidentally saving an older version over the newer one....

Re: Synching projects across Windows

That sounds like a pretty good plan to me. Just make sure you always copy the whole "my project.scriv" folder, the one that contains the .scrivx file and the folders within it. You need that whole thing for the project to stay intact. ... Best case, just copy the project folder to your lo...

Synching projects across Windows

I have just bought a netbook running WinXP and my main reason for buying it was so that I could run Windows versions of Scrivener on my WinVista desktop and also on the WinXP netbook. I'm a great fan of manual synching and have been dragging my entire Scrivener documents folder onto a flash drive to...
