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 ...

Re: beta after May 15th?

I hate to make light of this entire thread (not), but now that a beta announcement has been made, will it be beta 17? Or will the software scribes at L&L skip a beta and go right to beta 18? Will there be a beta after 17 (or beta 18, if they skip 17)? Will there be more betas before beta 17 (or ...

Re: Benefits of a College education

I could be wrong, but the following scenario comes to mind. The line is definitely not hot. The lineman is in a training environment. Judging by the position of the insulator, he's tensioning the line using a come-along. Or, he's replacing/stringing line and tensioning it on an actual "high-ten...
