Re: Will Scrivener run on Surface Pro X?

I hope you are right as it would bring in a whole super battery life option, There I don't think so. If the market was *really* demanding battery life that is far extended beyond what we have now, I think we'd see it.. I don’t know. The tested 20 something hours battery appeals to me. Keep working ...

Re: Will Scrivener run on Surface Pro X?

on the other hand, as the dev chain is built sooner or later Qt will support it, and then we can have a native Scrivener on Windows ARM build. There are enough other manufacturers out there building Windows 10 on ARM that Microsoft isn't trying to go it alone on that front, and even if the Surface ...

Re: Will Scrivener run on Surface Pro X?

The theory is, yes the 32bit versions should work, though being through emulation the performance may be less than sparkling. My concern would be ending up with an orphan if this attempt be MS to do an ARM based Surface ends as badly as the last. The Surface Go even though it’s a pretty poor spec de...

Re: Will version 3 be released this year?

Thanks. I appreciate the response. However, since my initial question, I've looked into other software, because the constant delays worry me. I've found Zettlr which looks quite promising for what I have to do. Good luck with getting version 3 on the street soon. I’m don’t understand why you would ...

Re: Scrivener for android

Previous posts in thus thread give L&L position on Android. Given ongoing wait for the Windows version I wouldn’t expect an Android version any time. Holding breath could be hazardous to health. Surprised by the ‘expensive’ comment as S8 which now seems discontinued in our market is listed about...

Re: Compiling corrupts Scrivener file

T. I've noticed a list of "conflicts" under Files, Icons, Settings and Snaps shots (I thought this was normal) I work on the file on two different machines. I don't get to the point where it asks where to save to. I have successfully compiled int the past with no problem. I've tried to fi...

Re: Compiling corrupts Scrivener file

is there any real hope that simply going to latest version is going to fix everything. If you contact any support platform, including Microsoft or Apple one of the first questions they will ask is have you upgraded to the current version your system will support? This is because the latest version ...

Re: I guess Scrivner is way better on MAC

Do what works for you, but don't buy into the hype or the perception that Macs are the more 'premium' devices. I’m not going to go into the Mac/Win argument in depth however the ‘don’t buy into’ mantra from some Win supporters ignores the fact that IBM and other major corporations have found and pu...

Re: Scrivener 3 crashes constantly even with only the template window open

1. Using Scrivener 3.1.4 2. I'm using High Sierra 10.13.6. Is this an issue because I haven't upgraded to Mojave? I don't want to upgrade to Mojave because it could mess up my Adobe 6 Creative Suite.

I take it that "Astaff" is a member of the L&L team. There are now 11 . Astaff is not a member of the L&L team, merely someone with extensive support experience in the Apple eco. I speak from my own experience with both Apple and L&L support and make no pretence to having any ...

Re: Any talk of introducing support for other cloud services such as onedrive?

Other cloud services have been discussed multiple times.

Short answer, at this time none other than Dropbox correctly support the Scrivener project format.

Re: Scrivener or Word???

I moved to Scrivener from Word ⅔ way through my first book and found the writing and editing much easier, especially when I needed to juggle a few scenes.

Re: Scrivener or Word???

Avoid the Windows version of Scrivener--it's broken. Ever since they switched to license provider Paddle, it's been a constant series of updates that end up resolving absolutely nothing. Stick with Word. It's not broken, still works just fine apart from the licensing hiccup which I am confident the...

Re: Scrivener or Word???

I wouldn’t put off using Scrivener Win just because your mobile device is Android. When you trial Scrivener as suggested, you will see it is far superior to Word for long form writing. You can easily import your current work into Scrivener with Import and Split. Do a search on the forum and you'll s...
