B40: Final Draft Import Broken

Hi, Final Draft 11 is so poorly written that I wanted to bring my screenplay into Scrivner where I am also doing my other writing I use File>Import>Files and open the FDX file. It comes in with terrible margins. It does not come in as Screenplay format and Convert to Screenplay doesn't work.on the i...

Re: Forced constant beta update

I agree that we can be a bit more civil than the all-caps insults. That post was getting a bit vehement, particularly near the end. ok zero caps... read the first and fourth posts in this thread. they didn't use caps, but they were aggressive in personal attacks on the dev team and anyone offering ...

Re: Forced constant beta update

"Censorship is a very odd stand for a writer" So is advocating for restricted access because you don't like what someone says: Personally I recommend L&L close future betas after 3 is released. Require a signed agreement and retain the right to remove people from the beta that violate...

Re: Forced constant beta update

Scrivner Beta Writers Block: Syndrome where people who have nothing good to write, pretend the Beta is stopping them from writing and then are offended when other writers point out to them that it's not really a big deal to install the software. They demand censorship and that only one opinion be o...

Re: Forced constant beta update

Here are SEVERAL technically feasible and commonly used techniques for solving this and regaining the goodwill of those of us who are now fed up: Make a statement to thank Beta testers for participating and for their patience, and explain why the project ended up taking so much longer than original...

Opinions, Facts, and Insults

Opinion: I find updates annoying. Fact: There have been many updates this month. Insult: Your software process is a personal insult to me and you hate your customers. People learn to communicate like adults! Yes, there are a lot of updated, no one has ever FORCED you to use the beta. There is no cos...

Re: Formatting error when editing with ProWritingAid

Thanks WORDJOY for looking into the problem. As other people might be thinking of buying PWA for the sole purpose of working with Scrivener, I will start a thread elsewhere cautioning people about such issues. Since it appears that this is not a problem on L&L's side and definitely not a Scrive...

Re: Formatting error when editing with ProWritingAid

I did some tests. It's a ProWirttingAid bug and a pretty serious one. When pressing Enter it displays it like a NEW PARAGRAPH with larger line spacing, but saves it as a NEW LINE. When you press Shift-Enter and it shows line a NEW LINE with a narrower line spacing, then saves it as a NEW LINE also. ...

Re: Formatting error when editing with ProWritingAid

I use Pro-Writing Aid Use their feedback tools. This may be related to what kind of line break is being inserted etc. But Remember: All of Pro-Writing Aid's claims are likely against released vs beta versions of Scrivner. It is not L&L job to validate other company's claims as they do not have a...

My apps & features showed version .13 .14 .17 .18 .29 .32 .18 and .32 had uninstall buttons available, the rest grayed out. I uninstalled .v18 which removed v32 as well, so I had to redownload v32 again. Now I have v13 v14 v17 v29 v32 (2 of them, one with grayed out uninstall button and one fun...

Re: Beta updates do not remove older versions

Not my experience. I just looked in Apps and Features I do have a stray B24 listing that is not connected to anything and won't uninstall, so I will have to remove it by hand. But since then I have installed every beta over the previous version and it has updated properly. I would look at your setti...

Re: Dark Mode

Scrivner Team Thanks for all the work trying to keep the promise to bring as many features as possible from Mac to Windows. I especially appreciate dark mode which I use all the time and the choice to use it or not use vs assuming all people are fine with one way.

Good job..

Re: Beta 30 - Edit Format window too large for screen, cannot save

Thank you, RW, but that still didn't work. I couldn't find where on my Windows 10 machine to change the DPI. I was able to work around it by plugging my computer into my television and utilizing that larger resolution screen. I think this is still a bug, I shouldn't have to do that to access a wind...

Re: Is it possible to convert back?

Almost every install I have done has taken hours or days. So it hasn't been this easy to install process that the rest of you enjoy. And I have had some head injuries that makes it impossible to hold the convoluted install process that we now use in my brain. This means my spouse must come in and w...
