Re: Scrivener 3 for Windows launch date?

Vaporware? What are ya using to write now, gehoeflinger, a quill pen, a bottle of ink, and a pen knife to keep the quill as sharp as your wit? Having a little trouble getting your own work done, are ya, with your single post? I recently started another novel with Beta 17, which I have now loaded int...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

Methinks all the wailing, gnashing of teeth and pearl clutching over Windows V3 is because certain users have nothing better to do. I've also noticed that many, if not most, have only a couple of posts, which leads me to believe that perhaps some among the competition have started the ball rolling b...

Re: Affinity Publisher! It’s alive! ALIVE!

All right, so I'm thinking Publisher is primarily for print, since ereaders don't carry over set fonts so well.

I have become quite adept at using the free paint dot net as my cover creator. Which of your products would I use to replace that?

Re: Scriv 3 beta runs super slow

I run beta17 on a 10-year-old Dell Studio 15 with 8 gigs of RAM and a 500gb SSD with no problems. I run Malwarebytes, Win Defender and Winpatrol as my antivirus programs, and Winscribe's VPN. Perhaps you should try shutting down your off-brand antivirus briefly to see if that's the problem.

Re: What espresso machine do you use, bro?

I like my coffee Irish, which is why I respond to some of the stupidest posts on the face of the earth in this forum. :D I pour my first glass at 0500, and my last at midnight, when I start all over again.

Re: Scriv3 for Win - Yes another inquiry regarding release date.

It's a 45$ software program, for god's sake, and some of you are incensed that a final release date hasn't been announced. In this day and age, 45 bucks is nothing. Go find something useful to write and let the company do its work. I have a thought. Vellum has never been released for the Windows ope...

Re: Scriv3 for Win - Yes another inquiry regarding release date.

So why not put another inquiry regarding release date in the appropriate thread? Ah, you're speshul. I get it. If you are unhappy with your writing software, might I suggest any one of a number of writing programs. There's even one available with a monthly subscription fee. I think it does something...

Re: Scrivener to Word to (editor) to Word to Scrivener

Here's a link to an old site that, partway down beginning at Step 1, explains how to set up and run a Word macro in an older version of Word. For those with Word 10 and perhaps later, the screens can be found in View/Macros/View Macros. webbiegrrl dot blogspot dot com/2013/03/tuesday-tip-removing-hi...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

It never ceases to amaze me to read about the pearl clutching regarding a new version of Scrivener. I've been using the Windows product in its various incarnations since 2011. Many have been using it far longer. I've written (oh, I dunno, allow me a moment to call up my spreadsheet) more than a hund...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

Well eggybread, I dunno, but why not pick up one of the many, many other software programs that claim to do what Scrivener for Windows does? I believe there are a number of free programs. There's even one where you pay a monthly subscription for an online version. I'm certain that bit of program del...

It also gives them a really looooong "day" with plenty of sunshine to launch a new beta. :D (Sorry I forgot the :roll: in my last post.)

Re: June 20th Seems... Oddly Specific to End Beta 17

Yes, but should I worry there will there be a beta 18? I mean, really, as a previous poster mentioned, June 20 is oddly specific. What if there are no more betas? What if they come to a grinding halt and then beta 19 is released, usurping the vaulted position of beta 18? Is it too soon to panic, or ...
