Re: Can Scrivener do the following...

I'll jump in here with an answer, and trust that someone more authoritative on this forum will come along and add a final word. I think of Scrivener as an "assembly kit" for any serious writing effort. It has a writing window surrounded by organizing tools and storage pockets and search fu...

Old hardware loves Scrivener!

To LAP and the hardworking genies back at the Scrivener workshop ... Thank You for a superb effort. Among my stable of antique hardware is a Dell Inspiron 5000 laptop ... an Intel Pentium III processor running at 497 Mhz, maxed out at 512mb RAM, running Win XP Pro/SP3. Scrivener runs very, very well...

Re: Ready for production use?

I would say "yes" to the question. The new version, 1.5.3.1, is running nicely on my Antix/Debian distro. I've tested & used the functions involved with my daily use, and it is rock solid. File import works well for me. The only serious glitch that remains is the scratch pad weirdness,...

Scriv 1.5.2 Update Won't Install - RESOLVED

Thanks to MM for the suggestion ... it worked. In short, I downloaded the full installer (which turned out to be the hot-fixed version, 1.5.3) and let it directly replace the contents of the version 1.2.5 folder. (I had also previously deleted any trace of Beta file/folder installs). Ver 1.5.3 insta...

Scriv 1.5.2 Update Won't Install

Note that registered install of Scriv for Windows 1.2.5 runs perfectly on my Win XP base. Beta versions 1.5.0.9 and 1.5.1.1 would install, but would NOT run. Returned error message: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc015002). Click OK to terminate the application." Various ...

Re: Beta 1.5.1.1 won't start

Thank you for asking. Yes, I downloaded a fresh Beta copy and installed it. No joy. Later, I uninstalled ver. 1.2.5, thinking there might be a conflict. Still no joy. I uninstalled both versions, and reinstalled only the Beta version, and got the same error message: failed to open properly. I've tri...

Beta 1.5.1.1 won't start

This is odd. Registered install of Scrivener 1.2.5.0 starts and runs fine on OS WinXP Pro, SP3, older Compaq S4000T desktop computer. BUT ... Beta install of Scrivener 1.5.1.1 immediately pops up error message "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002) ... click to terminate.&q...

Re: Scrivener Scratchpad Uses Invalid Linux Pathname

I found that if I click on the "Fist" icon at the bottom of the scratchpad window, which is apparently the "Grab an area with the mouse" function, then drag down the lower edge of the window that is mostly hidden under the scratchpad window, until I can expose the menu buttons .....

Courier Prime TTF Font free for download

This is a lovely version of the old standard Courier font, in versions for both Mac and Windows (and it works on Linux). It's open source, free for download, no restrictions. Link: http://johnaugust.com/2013/introducing-courier-prime I very much prefer it over the other versions which seem either to...

Re: Texts

So disappointing to find (again) that developers require Mac OS-X 10.6+ (but support XP+ on the Win side.) Scrivener continues to support OS 10.4 ... a blessing. Obviously a whole lot more has changed with Mac than with Windows!

Another nice tip that leads to a dead end ...

Re: 1.2.5 problem with RTF Reader

Hi Guys, We have found a workaround for your problem, but would need a little work from you too. Go to the Scrivener installation folder under Linux(the installer uses by default: /usr/share/scrivener/bin) Rename the application file 'rtfi' into whatever you like for example: 'mv rtfi no_rtfi'.
