Re: Installing 32-bit Scrivener on 64-bit Linux Mint

Thanks, Dingiswayo, this was definitely the answer for me - reinstalling the deb file dpkg using the parameter --force-architecture. Big thanks for this help. Now I can get on with seeing how well Scrivener on linux matches the Mac version, since I'm thinking of leaving the Mac world, even though it...

Re: A Mostly Complete Guide to Installing Scrivener on Linux

When trying to run scrivener.sh (as given above), I got this message: Scrivener: no such file or directory even though I could clearly see the file in folder view and when using the ls command. With a little digging I found the solution to this similar problem , which explains why it wasn't able to...

Re: Timeline???

Timeline programs are something I've looked at from time to time, but none of them really fit my bill. At this point I should say that I haven't looked at Aeon for a long time, and I've just d/l'd the 20 day test copy for a new evaluation. But my favourite timeline software is a combination of a) my...

Re: Software Recommendation

I wonder if you've overlooked the possibilities of a simple spreadsheet. You may not have MS Office, but you can get LibreOffice for free, and their Calc is every bit as good. You can set it up to suit just _your_ needs, not someone else's idea of what your needs might be. I have one with columns fo...

Page break problem on move from Mac to Windows

I do my main work on a Mac, but from time to time I transfer to a Windows box, as I can then work on the way to and from work. I find that the 'Page Break Before' checkbox becomes unticked when a novel is moved from Mac to Windows, (but not, if I remember correctly, on the way back from Windows to M...

Re: I know I'm a cheapskate, but anyway...

A bit off-topic, Garpu, but my Hackintosh runs very well in VirtualBox, although the usb gives me problems - crashes the guest at the moment when I put a usb-stick in. And yes, I have successfully used the Hackintosh to run Scrivener, but I'm so far into this book I don't like to take chances with i...

I know I'm a cheapskate, but anyway...

I have my main installation on one of my Macs, where all the work so far has been done. Now I'm testing the Windows version, since I unfortunately have a Windows box from work. On the way to and from work I can work on the bus. Actually, I'm also looking into the possibility of running a Mac guest i...

Default font

Most of my work is done on a Mac, where everything functions as I want. However, I'm testing transferring to my work windows box so I can write on the train to and from work and then back when I get home. However, although I have the standard font for my Mac as Linux Libertine, a free Times variant,...

Windows and Mac

Hi, just a quickie. I do all my work on a Mac, but just at the moment it would be useful to work on my job computer, a Windows box on the way to and from work. All I want to do is read the material I have written on the Mac and make adjustments. It's pure text in chapter form with only Chapter <$n> ...

Testing Scrivener 2.0

I'd like to do that, but before I do, I'm too heavily tied into Scrivener 1.x to risk an upgrade. Now I can keep the two versions separate in my application folder, but how is it with the folder under Library/Application Support/Scrivener? Will the new version use .../Scrivener2 or something, or mus...

Spacing

I'm using v.1.53 (don't want to update to 1.54 in case I fire up the project references bug again), and the project I selected had a sample document called Chapter, which contains nothing other than Chapter <$n> a bit down the page. I'm using this sample for my chapters, making a duplicate and renam...

Re: Storing non-Scrivener documents in Scrivener folder

Thanks guys. AmberV, I tried this and it worked fine. Thanks. That's just what I want. And then I thought - wasn't this a problem I had once before that project references became document references? I even found the thread: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7963 Now I'...
