Re: Who overthinks?

That was what I meant by "Just write" - make a story structure and then set the characters free and just write. I guess you could say that I'm a structure plotter but a pantser when it comes to evertything else. I can certainly agree with this. My very first attempt at a novel was just &q...

Re: Wish list: themes

I second this. Glaucoma and cataracts have taken their toll over the years, and the stark light background s and (so in vogue) light text cause me a lot of difficulty. I would also like to see the themes applied without having to close the app and restart each time, in addition to more theme choices...

Re: Feature Request: Dock the Inspector

Thanks. I see that, and it's now working, however I never changed it in the settings. :shock: Just glad it works like that, as the poor Inspector was left abandoned on my screen when I would close Scapple. Works a treat now.

Re: For those that use the scrivener 3 beta

LOL....yep, sure makes you appreciate what went into the computers to land two guys on the moon in 1969. But, there were probably only a couple of dozen lines of code in the on-board computers, which were likely the size of a refrigerator. (Sorry, no long-distance updates possible). Heck, I'm old en...

Re: For those that use the scrivener 3 beta

How about fix all the bugs and release it soon? :D Apple, Google, MS with far greater resources than L&L release operating systems with known bugs. We just hope they fix the ‘oh my god’ ones before they do so. Yep, and I can tell you from experience, that between the moment the decision is made...

Re: For those that use the scrivener 3 beta

"with a list of knows bugs" Errr, say again? :D Why not fix the known bugs before releasing a version that should be stable and bug-free? What Katherine said. :D I've been involved in beta testing for years prior, both public and private. Because bugs are always being found during the lif...

Re: New to Scrivener-pre purchase question

On the other hand, bear in mind that was first posted in 2011 and MM's further comments date to 2014. The differences given are between a fairly early version of Mac v.2 and Windows v. 1.0. It' may not all be relevant to the v. 3s on each platform. Mark, Agreed. I had seen that also. It's sometimes...

Re: "Split at selection" needs 2 prompts

If I understand your question correctly, I'm unable to replicate this.

I've used Windows v1 and beta .34, and both seem to split exactly where I've placed my cursor, just as soon as I select "Split At Selection" in the right click menu.

Re: How to see splits in corkboard

Welcome to the forums, Mgeaney You won't see the full chapter displayed on the corkboard index cards (see scrolling note below). You will either see the synopsis you've entered for that chapter, or merely the first few lines of the actual text from your chapter. In Windows (likely true for Mac, also...

Re: New to Scrivener-pre purchase question

Mr. X's advice is right on. Consider downloading both as trials, and do your comparison. I already have the Windows paid version (since 2013), but I'm running the Windows beta just now, in comparison with the Mac version 3.0. While the Mac version is newer than the current Windows non-beta version, ...

In the Windows version future updates, could we have an Inspector that docks to the workspace, as in the Mac version?

Outline View - Losing Synopsis contrast with Solarized Dark UI

Unable to find this addressed elsewhere, so far. Win 10 Home environment, fully updated Beta .34 Repeatable When testing the various UI color choices, contrast for text, corkboard, and outline seems all correct and appropriate for all choices except Solarized Dark. In other words, if a UI is lighter...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

I've arrived in beta territory with the .34 release. Loving it, as are some friends, who've never heard of, or just haven't ever tried Scrivener, and are still lost down at the...er….docs. :roll:

Two thumbs way up from all.
