Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

What does this mean? It means that things like opening and saving files from Mac and iOS projects need to work 100%, and that things like compile are working completely. Right now it appears that compile, for example, has more than just bugs and actually chunks missing under the hood. But that is a...

Re: WIndows 3 Release: My Thoughts

It seems like they keep pushing out the release date of Scrivener 3 for Windows because they want to make sure they hammer out ANY AND ALL of the bugs. No. It does not. It seems like they keep pushing he release date out because they want Scrivener 3 for Windows to be feature complete, which it at ...

You have that. It's version 1.9.

Re: Linux on Chrome OS

As Devin mentions, the Linux version will not sync with the current version of Scrivener on Windows, MacOS or iOS. You can write on the Linux version and open it in the current version, but not the other way around. To get the Linux version running on your Chromebook, provided the Chromebook is x86 ...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

Win 95 is no longer supported but systems are out there running it. Irrelevant. What is relevant is that Win95 software runs fine on Windows 10, which IS supported. This is key. In-house, business critical software developed during the last 20 years, often with no current source code available, or ...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

there are a number of companies who use nothing but Mac as servers, with rooms full of them in fact an amber of hosting companies use them exclusively. In my 36+ years in IT (pissing contest) I have and continue to see hundreds of companies outside of creative that use Mac product every day. MacOS ...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

We’ll agree to disagree on that.. You may. I won't. As someone who has lived through the development of 16, 32 and 64 bit Windows (including the abomination that was Win 1.0 ) and the resultant bloat of backward compatibility I stand by my original comments. I sold my first piece of software in 198...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

32 bit drivers are required for hardware and that holds back development of newer technology, and yes does require additional resources. For instance newer tech such as 10g Ethernet only works with 64bit drivers from the last reports I saw. You're conflating two different things. Being able to run ...

Re: any news on Windows 3 version?

Yes there are possibly the odd 32 bit apps that haven’t been updated to 64 but if Apple can go 64 bit only MS should get moving on it. All the resources they use for 32 bit code and drivers could be used to clean up 64 bit Win. That is not how it works. The vast majority of software for Windows is ...

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

However once you crack your knuckles and get down to the actual word processing it sometimes feel like the app is fighting against you. (Especially when working on a 'blank' project without templates) That is by design. Scrivener is not a word processor. That is precisely why it is popular. It is a...

Re: It's official - Constructive Criticism as a form of improvement is DEAD!

There are MUCH BETTER ways to do Windows programming than the path L&L has chosen to follow, as I understand it. There are not. These comments come from people who have little or no experience with this kind of project, with trying to create and maintain custom GUI controls, and especially with...

Re: Commitment & responsibility...

Anyway, every time I hear an update about the Windows version I just get more and more confused. There's 1 Mac dev who is somehow outpacing 2 devs? Are the Windows version and lack of parity so unimportant to the L&L that they are happy to continue refusing requests for any additional help? Why...

Re: Dissapointment in the Windows Team

Any xplat development takes time but..... I was shocked.... by reading the blog they're using QT and doing development separate platform development. In addition to this, creating their own engines for spell check and richedits. There /are/ alternatives. Not good alternatives. Qt is a very stable a...

You can't buy ExaGear any longer though, so it's a bit too little, too late. :/
