Re: Linux 1.9.01 Beta Released

I was away from the Linux version for a while, since I made a lot of use of the iOS version of Scrivener for editing on the go, and even cork boarding stories during breaks and the like. But since the Wine version has exploded in size (100 megs to 2.2 gigabytes), I've returned to running the Linux v...

Re: .NET requirement bloating install size

In doing a touch more digging, Paddle is actually a third party licensing service. They do provide an SDK that can be used to access their services and it appears to only work with full framework out of the box. One could push Paddle to provide Netstandard (compatible with both full framework and ....

Re: Scrivener on Linux: native Linux version vs Windows version under Wine

For the Scrivener users who have experience with all of these three variations: What would you recommend? I run Scrivener on Linux, both natively and under Wine, and used to run it on Windows and iOS. A long time ago I also ran it on Mac, but I no longer have a Mac. My recommendation is... examine ...

Re: .NET requirement bloating install size

Just want to say that not having to honk around with stuff like this is one reason I've stayed with Windows rather than experimenting with Linux, which (I understand) requires or at least invites more system-level gear adjusting. Rather the opposite. Linux requires pretty much no system-level gear ...

Re: .NET requirement bloating install size

The new licensing library provided by Paddle requires the .NET 4.6.2 (or later) libraries, which is not something L&L have any control over. They can choose what licensing library they use, surely. This is really annoying, since the Linux version of Scrivener (which clocks in at 64 megabytes, i...

.NET requirement bloating install size

I love writing in Scrivener on both my Linux home system, my iPad and my "carry everywhere writing machine", which tends to vary but is definitely a very cheap, low power Chromebook with Linux installed, with very low RAM and disk space. That has worked eminently well for me. Until the req...

Re: For those that use the scrivener 3 beta

May I ask which software you use for gathering research? For the majority of my research, I use QOwnNotes, with a Dropbox folder for saving my notes in. I use the browser integration to store information, and then organize it according to my projects or areas of interest. On my iPad and iPhone I us...

Re: For those that use the scrivener 3 beta

I'm sometimes extremely nostalgic for the pre-Internet days when you couldn't send out a patch when something didn't work. You had to make it right the first time. There were no such days. I have both hardware patched computers, and used DOS DEBUG to alter the assembly instructions in commercial so...

Re: Buying ProWritingAid? Read this first.

1. Paragraphing/indent displays incorrectly. 2. PWA does not properly identify smart and curly quotes. 3. PWA sometimes mistakes apostrophes for unclosed single quotes. 1. I have not found this. How do you indent? 2. This one is a bit of a bother, when those are needed, yes. I use "simple"...

Re: Scrivener/Scapple for Windows Activation under Wine

Wine containers do not have Windows versions per se. The version is just an entry in the registry and can be changed at will (even on the fly; you can use one version to start one program and another version to start another program and have the programs interact like if they were running on the sam...

Re: A very hesitant suggestion for Scrivener 4 (or maybe 5)

Then don't use them. But understand that every single formatting option in Scrivener exists because a large enough number of users requested it. I don't, no worries. But it's a bit sad to me that the development of all those things for the Windows version is taking up so much time and causing so ma...

Re: A very hesitant suggestion for Scrivener 4 (or maybe 5)

This is pretty much what specialized formatting tools are for though. There are plenty of those. Just output something decent with enough retained metadata that they can do their job properly, and it's done. Most people with specialized formatting needs will use a separate formatting tool anyway, si...

Re: Just about out of patience

You can certainly call it rhetorical if you like, but that is your opinion of my characterization of it. It feels like a vacuum to me. The beta updates don't really meaningfully say anything other than the lit of bugs. While some may find that all they need, not everyone is going to. It seems you h...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

Trust me, Windows has always been and will ALWAYS be a second class citizen to this company. No matter the dialogue and fanboi defenses for this nonsense in the pages of responses, you'll find that this is true for the entire time that Scrivener for Windows has been out. The features always lag, an...
