Re: ETA on new build? Beta will expire in 3 days.

I think you might have missed the newest beta post (viewtopic.php?f=34&t=21343) - the 1.5.0.8 beta doesn't expire until Feb 01. :)

ETA: And MM beat me to it. :lol:

Re: typing over previous typing

That's a windows thing known as text overwrite, not a Scriv specific thing - pushing the insert key accidentally tends to trigger it, but luckily pushing the same should turn it off. :)

Re: Footnotes

You might want to have a look at the second paragraph of MM's response (below) - looks like a workaround to me. ;) That said, similar options exist for compiling comments and inline annotations, so one way to handle producing both footnotes and endnotes is to use the footnote feature in Scrivener to...

Re: Importing images question

...What's advanced about it? You click the import button, select webpage (or file) or from the drop down menu, paste in the url and... it does it? I'm honestly not seeing where technical ability comes into it. The only finnicky bit is that it won't let you import into the manuscript/draft folder (be...

Re: Footnotes

Inspector footnotes are in the most recent beta version, which will bring parity up with Mac on that feature.

Re: Importing images question

I've had this problem in other programs before - I don't know if it's the same thing that's happening here, but in that case it turned out that the image files had the wrong file suffix applied - ie, they were .pngs that had somehow had the suffix changed to .jpeg or .gif or vice versa. Some program...

Re: Windows 1.2.5 Released 14th Aug 2012

You can already use footnotes v1.2.5. They're simply inline with your text until you compile, when they get inserted into the correct place. The 1.5 beta which is currently available in the appropriate beta forum adds the ability to add footnotes that appear in the inspector frame rather than in you...

Re: when beta expires

Plus, by the time the beta expires, we'll either a) have a new beta available for download, or b) the beta will be released as a full version if it's been deemed stable enough. So you probably won't have to worry about going backwards. ;)

As long as he has the mac version of Scrivener - full or trial - you'll be able to open the project file without issue. :)

Re: Paste OS clipboard contents into corkboard as new item?

Not entirely what you're asking for, but you can drag an image out of most web browsers and drop it in the binder, which will put it in its own document? Probably easier than c+ping them all into a document first ;)

Re: Estimated Release Date for Scrivener on iOS?

This thread's only about two weeks old - reading through the first couple of posts would answer your question. ;) The ballpark is 'sometime next year, hopefully the first half'.

Re: need to install on an internet free pc

And don't just copy over your current install out of the program files folder - redownload the installer from the main page to a usb stick and install it to the new computer using that - you'll need to do the same when Scrivener updates, since you won't be able to use autoupdates, but you'll only ne...

Re: Newbie-USB Drive

My suggestion would be to leave Scrivener on your laptop even if you install a backup copy to your thumb drive, and then use the computer installed version for preference. I only run it off the thumbdrive if I need to access Scrivener on another computer, especially if I don't have install privilege...

The freeeform corkboard isn't in the Windows version yet but it has been promised by Win v 2.0, I believe.

Re: Newbie-USB Drive

1. Insert USB drive
2. Install Scrivener
3. When asked to select install location, point it at your USB stick
4. Run Scrivener off USB stick.
5. Profit

And, of course, you can then save your scriv projects to the usb as well, allowing you to take both the program and projects with you.
