Scrivener doesn't know the words, and I'm baffled as to what to do next.

Re: New Project. Should I take the Release Candidate Plunge?

I don't think you'll be disappointed, especially if you're starting a new project in the Beta. I wouldn't recommend dragging an existing v1.9x project over, or converting the v1.9x project, but that's just me. I've been using the Beta forever, and I really like it. I've got it set up the way I want ...

Re: Item that I cannot delete

There are three unremovable folders in a Scrivener project: Draft, Research. and Trash.


Yes, and thank you for making them unremovable! (I think there's a message in my statement, too.)

Re: Grateful for the good news

And here we are on RC 5 with a life span of a whole month and no sign of final release.... #2021 for the masses or perhaps we should set our sights for #2022? Well ya, but-- need I go on? Oh very well, I will go on. I've been using the beta for like, forever, like. Produced plenty output. Made mone...

Re: Annoying problem with Scrivener on remove office

Is there some reason why you can't install Scrivener on your home computer?

Re: I'm a Fraud

We're all frauds. Some of us are better at it than others, is all. What devinganger said. Plus, if you do much of your "writing in bed" (as in coming up with ideas there), be sure to keep a notebook and a pen somewhere near that bed, or any other The Wife kicks you onto. Many are the times...

Re: Selecting font bug

I pulled up a Beta project in my second laptop, a Toshiba Satellite Win10 x64. I can't duplicate the problem either.

Re: Best laptop etc for typing experience with Scrivener (for Windows)

I hope I'm not taking this off-topic, but I recently replaced a 10-year-old Dell that I kept upgrading, with a new Inspiron 15-5593. Now the 5593 is obviously not at the previous poster's price point, but _everything_ in it is user-replaceable, which was a huge bonus for me. I was also able to inser...

Re: Best Way to Transfer Scrivener Customizations?

I just loaded up my old v1.9x (I've been using the Beta forever) and checked under F12 / General.

At the bottom left, "Manage", there is a clickdown menu. Beyond that, I can't be of any help.

Re: Grateful for the good news

Getting out of Beta will just mean, that I have to spend some bucks on it. Being the somewhat cheap, err, I mean, rather frugal individual that I am, I will be so disappointed (not) when the RC becomes a final release. I might be consoled by a new Beta for something or other. On the positive side, ...

Re: What font do you use?

Thanks for this, but if you all don't mind, I'll just keep pumping them out and waiting for the reader to send money. I don't care about fonts, as long as the ebook reader presents it one page at a time. Or scrolls it infinitely. I don't care about what the reader takes away from it, or interprets, ...

Re: Need some idea on 3.0 Beta

Personally, I wouldn't move ANY v1.9 project I was actively working on into the Beta, especially a large one of some 600 pages, or even a small one, for that matter. Stick with what you know to completion. Perhaps you might consider starting your NEXT project in the Beta, and become familiar with wo...

Re: Making cursor more visible

I recently bought a new Dell 15-inch Win10 Pro x64. I wanted the mouse pointer and cursor a bit more visible in all of my software. I didn't want to reset the screen to 150%. The default is 125%. I went to Settings / Ease of Access / Cursor and Pointer. There is also an Additional mouse settings sel...

Re: unable to verify your activation for more then two months

I got a similar request to activate once again, as well. The notices seem to be coming regularly now. I put in my email address and serial number and I was good to go.

Do you not have yours?
