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...

Re: When to quit...?!

You might want to take a look at pulp writer Dean Wesley Smith's blog. He's a very firm believer that writing practice is writing new work. Re-writing isn't. I tend to go along with that, but as always, writing is solitary work, so what works for you is what works for you. In other words, you do wha...

Re: Compile doesn't work after the latest update

I installed B16 overtop of B15. On reading this, I was able to compile my latest draft as a Times New Roman .docx.

(Not relevant, but I upload the .docx using Send to Kindle to load it onto my tablet and phone for proofing.)

Re: True or False??

I use my once-daily poison of choice as a reward for a day well-composed: One coffee-machine cuppa café crema infused with a half-and-half mixture of cream and chemical-enhanced French Vanilla flavouring. How French it is and how much vanilla is involved doesn't concern me. I hasten to add that it i...

Re: Partial emptying of trash

What I do is create a couple of folders near / above / below the Trash folder. Call them whatever you want. Put files you don't want to delete in one folder (possibly called Unused Files, or Files I Want to Use). Create another folder called Deleted Files. Put files in it that you want to delete, bu...

I am having the same issue (Win10 x64 Beta15.)

( I think this should be in the Beta Testing forum.)

Re: Reading a draft on an Android or Mac tablet

If you install "Send to Kindle" on your laptop/desktop, you'll have it available as a right-click menu item. You can then send your .doc or .docx file to your reader/laptop/desktop of choice for review. I send it to both phone and reader for the differing views.

[LH3284]CTRL-Spacebar behaviour

I realize this isn't anything major: In v1.9, CTRL-Spacebar finds double spaces in a scene, makes the corrections, and indicates a save with the appearance of an asterisk. No double spaces, no asterisk in the title bar, thus no indication of doing a save. In Beta v10 and earlier, an asterisk indicat...

Re: [SUGGESTION] True Typewriter mode

SUGGESTION ABOUT THE SOFTWARE: make it do what I want. I suspect that if a 45$ piece of software implemented everyone's keyboard requirements, it would be unusable. I have a hardware suggestion.
