Re: Has Windows Version 3 Been Scrapped?

I can't comment on the Mac/Dell battle, but here is my experience with a Dell 5593 purchased in January 2020: First thing I did was download the Dell 5593 service manual. Everything is user-replaceable, and I mean everything. It even has a vacant drive bay for another SSD, which I immediately instal...

That's a Starbucks in that header image? Whoa. I'da thought it was some sort of Rube Goldberg imagery. Oh, wait. I think it is.

Re: Recently updated to the latest beta, now Malwarebytes is flagging multiple program files as malware

If you're on Win 10, and running Defender, Norton, and Malwarebytes, I'm surprised you haven't had more problems. You might want to think about losing Norton, unless there's some specific reason you need it on Win 10. Here's a link on how to run Malwarebytes with another antivirus: https://www.howto...

Re: Recently updated to the latest beta, now Malwarebytes is flagging multiple program files as malware

Probably not relevant to say, but I run Malwarebytes-paid on three laptops, and I've had no problems with the latest RC-9 release getting flagged. On the other hand, I've never run Norton, so there's that.

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

I'm a Parts/Chapters writer. I break the story into four parts based on the three act structure. Act 1 is Part 1. Act 2 is broken at the mid-point, ending Part 2, after which Part 3 begins. Act 3 is my Part 4. I find it much easier to manage this way, no matter the length of the product. Each Parts ...

Was it really...

slightly over two years ago that I threw caution to the winds and began using Scrivener 3 Beta 7? I can't believe that I've been using the new software since then, with nary a glitch that I couldn't find a solution to in the forums, or, more likely, solved with an update. Of course, I couldn't pat e...

Re: Lions, and tigers, and...viruses?

It was an old sixties anti-hippie thing. You know, those filthy hippies and no shoes or shirts didn't deserve to be on the premises. Storekeepers reserved the right to deny service. Seems about right in the newage/sewage time of the beer virus. Just add masks and stir.

Re: Apocalyptic fiction

I guess that makes me a writer. I'll feel more like a real writer when I'm putting out a book every year.

Thanks for the heads up on the Affinity pricing.

Considering what I was using before, I'm extremely happy. I shal...

Re: In-app update download is very slow

Two laptops, same network. #1 auto-updated normally. #2 went into a slow download speed for some reason. I cancelled, and went to Help / Check for updates and the speed of the download was comparable to laptop #1. Don't know why it happened. Don't care. Cancel and Help / Check for updates solved the...
