Re: 11th NOV - LEE'S UPDATE

Lee, I am happy to hear what you are getting out of, to get into Scrivener, and I understand and support the way you're handling the bugs, to keep in the midst. I cannot seem to duplicate getting into that bad state of project, even though there weren't so many things I did on fresh Beta 3 before it...

Re: 11th NOV - LEE'S UPDATE

Hi Beta Users,There was a comment by Clive on my last update post which I didn't really understand. So, Clive if you're reading, could you enumerate a little as you've always provided excellent feedback and I just didn't get this one and it did seem important? The one thing I don't see addressed ye...

Re: 9th NOV - LEE'S UPDATE

Lee, it's sounding like a wise overview, and that you guys do have understanding of what you are about very well in hand, and for the most significant areas especially. The one thing I don't see addressed yet is that of ability-lockout and Scrivener-having-to-close bugs. Those are probably pretty im...

Re: 7th NOV - LEE'S UPDATE (BETA 3 DOWNLOAD)

Regarding Norton. EVERY prudent Windows user does, upon first boot of the system, remove that pernicious piece of excrement and replace it with something that actually works, and which will not give you endless grief. Well, there have been some years in the past where problems did occur, and I've s...

Re: 7th NOV - LEE'S UPDATE (BETA 3 DOWNLOAD)

EDIT: Found the problem. Norton is recognizing the file as a threat and deleting it before I can use it. Yes, I had the same problem with Norton here, again. I hope you know you can get the installer out of Norton by finding it in the Quarantine, and then using your Options to tell it to put the th...

Re: 7th NOV - LEE'S UPDATE (BETA 3 DOWNLOAD)

Just to let you know, Lee, that the new installer, in its auto-uninstall-previous mode, seems to have worked just fine, given your minor notes. - I did rapidly get into some situation where Scrivener wanted to show only project notes, not the usual synopsis and so forth in the third column; and at t...

Re: 4TH NOV - LEE'S UPDATE

Excellent and impressive, Lee (I've been an upon-a-times interventionist and depth software grue). I wouldn't worry about the uninstall-install, for these reasons: - it's a much healthier process in many regards than replacing individual exes/dlls - it's a much safer process, vis-a-vis either malwar...

Re: [29th Oct Update] Word Count Progress Bar[BUG LOGGED]

Hi Lee - glad you've got this logged. I hope I'm not misunderstanding, but you seem to be saying that moving, pulsing progress indicator may be expected - on Windows 7 at least. Actually, would be pretty sure few if any would prefer a visual that's active of this kind. It would be distracting while ...

Re: 2nd NOV - LEE'S DAILY UPDATE

Sounds very good, Lee, a sensible approach, and you can see how much support you have from people for it. On the performance/slowdown issue, I understand you feel it is spell checking, but hope you also note the word count-progress bar problem which can also cause terrific slowdown - and should be e...

Re: [29th Oct Update] Word Count Progress Bar

Just to help (or complicate matters), the following seem true on 32-bit Windows 7: - zero is accepted for word count goals etc.. If you use zero, no effects are noted, and everything is fine. - if you use non-zero for work count, you get two serious problems: === Scrivener slows way down, lagging on...

Re: Virus in installation file?

Yes, WS.Reputation is the malware name Norton gives to track that their reputation engine hasn't accepted that the file is used enough yet in the community. Nice... The easy thing to do is to go to the Norton Quarantine, and tell it you really want to use the file. This will put it back where you in...

Many thanks to Lee Powell...

...and you too, Keith. Very appreciated to have delivered such a well-working Beta, and on the intended date -- and hope those involved will take some well-deserved relaxation. Scrivener for Windows feels eminently usable, and very easy to understand. It will be put right to use, and I think will op...

Re: Scrivener for Windows...

Wonderful to get the email just now that Scrivener for Windows is coming.

I am very much looking forward to the beta next month.

The video was quite impressive - thanks for making this happen!
