Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

That's nonsense. Rather the contrary, as you yourself support with your examples. There are Papyrus A piece of software which has taken a dedicated C++ team a decade to get to the current level of polish - and then it can't do half of what Scrivener can do. A perfect example of the amount of effort...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

I run the Linux version and the latest version 1 for Windows, and work on projects in parallel between them with no problems. There are changes in internal project layout, but that is nothing I notice, as long as I do not open the projects on iOS Scrivener or on the beta 3 version. Using the Linux v...

Re: Would so LOVE to see Scrivener 3 for Windows during the Coronavirus Shutdown

But by a few years? Nope. That's a sign that the service provider doesn't know what they're doing, or lacks experience and therefore grossly miscalculated the required efforts, or is hiding other relevant information from their clients (e.g., a solo entrepreneur struggling with time-consuming depre...

Re: Reduced Cross-Platform Support

they're obviously not large enough a company to realize this goal in a reasonable timeline. They have a working, stable multi-platform solution OUT NOW. If that timeline is not reasonable enough for you, you've got very special demands, that luckily are not shared by most people. There's a lot of u...

Re: Would so LOVE to see Scrivener 3 for Windows during the Coronavirus Shutdown

Also remember that in some translations, Jesus said he was coming back soon, so... Matthew 24:34, Mark 13:30, Luke 21:32 (NRSV) "Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place." Hopefully we won't have to wait two millennia for Scrivener 3 for...

Re: Reduced Cross-Platform Support

Perhaps if we are lucky it'll make a difference. You honestly and truly believe that L&L are sitting on their hands, not wanting to release a Windows 3 version, and deliberately eschewing income, making people upset, and having articles written about how they just keep working on Scrivener 3 an...

Which is not acceptable, because not using the API means it WILL BREAK when Apple changes things, which they do all the time.

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

Yes because everyone knows Windows is an impossible platform for development. That's why there are so few programs for it. /s The number of Scrivener style applications for Windows are, indeed, an indicator of how hard it is to develop Scrivener style applications for Windows. There are lots of the...

Re: Reduced Cross-Platform Support

The key pieces for Scrivener on the Mac are Apple's text system, its PDFKit for handling PDF files, and WebKit for HTML files. What are the Windows equivalents of those components? Windows has nothing like the Cocoa text system. It is the best in the industry, and nothing can hold a candle to it. G...

Re: Reduced Cross-Platform Support

As someone who appreciates what the L&L crew are doing here, the idea that somehow the Windows version is being held back by the tools on Windows is just, again, inaccurate. Not by the tools, but by the available API's. Windows does not provide a lot of the core functionality MacOS provides, wh...

Re: Reduced Cross-Platform Support

However, every time I try to manually copy the project over to Scrivener 3.0 Beta I run into a serious bug or I am told I have to re-download and re-install the beta. There's always some issue. I hope you reported those serious bugs. If you did, you will find that L&L takes serious bugs serious...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

I have a problem with a file that shows an empty file, but I write many lines with older versions of Scrivener. How could correct that problem? You will get better response if you start a new subject about this issue, under the forum which corresponds to the version of Scrivener you use. Also provi...

Re: Dropbox sync is too restrictive - any other option, even iCloud??

I've used Scrivener for 13 years, but the 3-device limit (albeit Dropbox's restriction, not Scrivener's) has become a severe limitation. I frequently use an iPhone, iPad, laptop, and desktop Mac. Yep, the phone is important (I'm a poet, the form factor is effective!). Upgrading any of the devices, ...

Re: .NET requirement bloating install size

Let's be clear: you're throwing this lovely hissy cow because you are using the application in an undesigned manner with best-effort support AND it's still working, but you're upset about it because it upsets the optimization for your corner case that is explicitly called out as NOT supported? That...
