Re: Scrivener V3 for Windows release date

@SCN: I noticed your tag "I'm writing my first novel, employing the Save the Cat beats and the Snowflake method." and wanted to mention another excellent book on structure by Jessica Brody, called "Save The Cat! Writes A Novel". She uses Blake Snyder's books and fleshes out the b...

Re: Hello and a suggestion! :)

Thanks to Wikipedia, I refreshed my memory. Of course, one's mileage may vary concerning passive-aggressive behaviour, and we all know Wikipedia isn't a bible, by any stretch. Has anyone else noticed how some posters like to have the last word? ^^^ Heh. passive-aggressive behavior as: "a person...

Re: Hello and a suggestion! :)

Well, I wasn't referring to you, specifically, but very well, then. Pot, meet kettle. And go watch some Benny Hill. Or, Carry On Regardless. In the meantime, I'm off for a nice jog, where I'll work out details of the plotting and characters for my next novel. I'll write, err, type that using the mos...

Re: Hello and a suggestion! :)

Ya gotta luv some of the complainers. First, they're unhappy with the Mac software. Apparently it gets too many updates. Then, they're unhappy with the Win software. It doesn't get enough updates. iOS hasn't been updated for two years. They're unhappy with the version of Scrivener for Win that's in ...

Re: Hello and a suggestion! :)

Glad you finally found an app that you like to use, even if entering text by typing is a bit slow. I'm sure they'll improve the software faster than you can type "update".

Re: Commitment & responsibility...

Scrivener version 1.9+ for Windows works quite well. It has for me since 2011. It's a shame that so many people you know need a release version of Scrivener 3 to do their writing. And, of course, you are right. There are many other writing products out there, including Word. Some of them even requir...

Re: Release on Aug 30 confirmed?

Scribhneoir: I'm done. Maybe I'll check back next year and see if anything has changed. I'm with Astaff on this. Blindfolds at dawn! A healthy drawing and quartering! A ceremonial flogging? No way. It's to be a severe flogging or nothing. A day spent in La Tomatina for all of them! Oh. Wait just a ...

Re: Name generator

Phone books down at the library work great, too. A first name from one page, a last name from another.

Re: Release on Aug 30 confirmed?

... while I am waiting for the final relase of Scrivener 3 for Windows (sic), I do not start anything really important for me. Seriously? You've stopped using version 1.9, a perfectly good and productive product. You're not producing anything. You've halted your writing. Your ideas have come to a h...

Re: Weekly betas

Not fair! I want ice cream for my dog! (Sorry, I'm too frazzled with writing to code it.)

Although, I do have time to post, so I can't be that frazzled.

Re: Do I have to uninstall Beta 19 (Win64) before installing Beta 20?

I have two laptops using the Beta. On one, I installed B20 on top of B19. It works quite nicely. It's not recommended, though. It's a beta, after all. Once in a blue moon on this laptop when a new beta comes out, I'll uninstall the beta and download the newer version, but not all that often. I've do...

Re: Finding a lawyer at a decent price.

Maybe he just got out courtesy of his most recent misadventure. Or, perhaps, he acted as his own lawyer and went MIA for a number of years.

Re: Dissapointment in the Windows Team

Speaking of failed writers, judging by all the negative comments on the Windows beta, there appears to be plenty of writers blaming the tool. Methinks the failures should take a look in the plate glass on the outside of the coffee-shop patio. They might just catch a glimpse of themselves. In the mea...
