What tools are those? I am genuinely curious here. Links to the posts are fine.

Re: What file name do I type in at the command line

1. Scrivener is probably in your "Office tools" menu, in the application start menu. If not, just type "scrivener" in a terminal and it ought to start. 2. If you mean the scrivener projects, you just copy the entire directory which the files are in, and then you get everything. Y...

Re: Confusion over lack of Linguistic Focus in Win version

Not sure what this supposed .Net conspiracy theory is about, but I haven't heard much about it. "Conspiracy theory"? You're right. You're not much of a programmer anymore. But for PCs? Meh. Microsoft does not rule over C++. Microsoft rules over their API's. Just about everything they rele...

Re: Confusion over lack of Linguistic Focus in Win version

And if Microsoft already has a plugin for OneNote that works pretty much the same as in the Mac version, I would assume they have some resources for further development. Why would you assume that? First of all, they want developers to go to .NET and develop for their store, not to develop standalon...

Re: Random Hangs and Crashes

It looks like something is going wrong with the online authentication. I'm not very fond of the .NET cruft they've crammed in to accomplish that, I've not found it stable in Linux, and it takes up a lot of space just to add the .NET stuff to the wineprefix, but it's usually not quite this unstable i...

Re: Is there a way to RegEx Search for Keywords (or exclude results that contain specific keyword)?

stackoverflow.com Good to see that was not the case, even though not all those answers are correct for most PCRE engines. And notably, the Scrivener engine seems to have some bugs. So the [^exlude_this] pattern works in the PCRE, at least. I just did a quick test in the Windows RC, but it didn't do...

Re: Clean looking fonts under Wine

Depends on your font rendering settings in X, or for that matter Wayland, as well. On my machine, Wine programs look clean and nice pretty much out of the box, as long as I have the MS core fonts installed. I usually install those systemwide, and not in winetricks. Not sure exactly which of my setti...

^(This|That)


Scrivener appears to be using PCRE for RegExp, which would make ^ match start of string. PCRE has no NOT operator, to my knowledge.

Re: Online Version (?)

Not quite as good as Scrivener, but not bloody far off! It can't even cut and paste folders and plot cards, and that is on the long term roadmap, not the short term. It's VERY far away from Scrivener in basic functionality, and it has NONE of the research capability of Scrivener. Creating a large p...

Re: A great program marred by critical flaws in core functionality.

On the negative side, and quite surprising to me, Scrivener's reputation seems to be losing some of its previous luster. If anything, I see rather the contrary. Version 3 for PC is shaping up well, and a lot of people are trying it for free. And the 1.9.x version is very stable and solid for Window...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

Ack. :( Hopefully it's not covid-19. It was. I was down and out for weeks. Really did a number on me. How you feeling now? Better, but not great. Still very weak, and problems focusing. No energy to even do things I enjoy. But it's getting better, so I have hope. :) I had a friend with La 'Rona, an...

Apologies it was so late. I got really sick, and haven't been active with anything online, really.

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

My only concern is whether the binder categories and text (including footnotes) for a file composed under the former will fully and accurately open under the latter. In my experience, moving back and forth between 1.9.16 on Windows and 1.9.0.1 on Linux works flawlessly. There are no issues what so ...

Re: Moving from Mac to PC

Unfortunately you will need a separate license. The Windows version 3 is coming along very well. It's in release candidate now, and I have been using it on and off for months now (off only because I write a lot on Linux, and the Linux version can't read V3 projects) and it's very stable already.

Make up your mind. You are making two self contradictory claims here.

I don't care that you don't understand you do. That's not my problem. But you do.
