Re: Disapointment in the Windows Team

* holds up hand, looks around * Perhaps one of the "guilty" parties here, but I've been using the new beta since 7. Have I ever used ALL of any versions of Scrivener's features? NO! I do not. I use Send To Kindle to proof multiple times on a tablet and a phone. These proofing files are com...

Re: License manager ended unexpectedly

All right, installed and done on my second laptop as described above. The first time I ran the newly replaced Scrivener.exe from a shortcut in the task bar on the second laptop, it stuttered with the blank opening for 10 seconds. I waited for it to execute fully, opened a project normally, and close...

Re: License manager ended unexpectedly

1) I renamed my original Program Files (x86) / Scrivener.exe file to Scrivener_OLD.exe. 2) Copied the Scrivener.exe file from your extracted download to Program Files (x86) / Scrivener. 3) I've opened the x86 version multiple times with your new Scrivener.exe file.The program opens normally for me. ...

Re: Dissapointment in the Windows Team

I love the old Scrivener too. It has been my best writing friend for many years. I agree wholeheartedly, although I've been using the Beta exclusively since v7. I've been going back to 1.9+ to check on the activation issues. You know, just in case there's a burp. I can produce meaningful output in ...

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...
