Re: Changing color of background and text?

I believe this is in the "Not implemented yet" bucket, and should be coming once the rich text enging moves from half-worky to awesome.

Re: Writing in Scrivener

Performance issues are a known problem, and are currently being worked on.

One thing that has worked for some people is turning off spell checking, I believe.

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

As I see it, there is an underlying logic to all languages; it's just that they all use a different underlying logic A very excellent statement. My moment of comprehension with Japanese was when I finally got the whole "no, this language really is head-last" part. A lot of the grammar jus...

Re: 29th Oct - LEE'S DAILY UPDATE

Lee, I think a lot of us understand that fixing the rtf stuff is going to be more involved than daily. Do what you need to do--if that mean disappearing for a week, so be it. I think the rest of the community can help with that some, too.

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

That's the reason why it always feels dangerous to write a message on this forum… I'm sure I'm doing a lot of mistakes in English, and I am surrounded by people who love when English is correctly written :) Quite honestly, your English is, to my "ear", rather natural. Until you go and say...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

From what I recall, French was rife with exceptions to rules, but at least the exceptions tended to have their own rules. (One that I vaguely recall was that -ir verbs conjugate like this, except for the -oir verbs, which conjugate like this, except for the -voir verbs, which are like this..., or so...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

We were actually discussing the logical operators and expressing them in English. It's not his fault for not being aware of an odd idiosyncrasy in Japanese. :) (In most languages that I know of, after all, concatenation implies conjunction) Of course, I also thought that class was one of the good on...

Re: First Impressions

The dictionary/spellcheck/non-Englishlanguage support are all currently half-worky, so that's why you keep having problems. I believe the current fix roadmap is to first take care of a few more small, minor ones, then dig into the big ones related to text formatting, and then from there head to lang...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

Out of curiosity, what does it mean? We never got that far in my French classes (the teachers would often deny that there was any negation aside from ne ... pas , and I was like "But I've seen ne ... jamais ! (One of my history textbooks even had a famous quote in French: " Ne jamais plus ...

Re: Program not Opening

I'm pretty sure now that the problem is that its not compatible with windows 7. Not likely. If it didn't work on Windows 7, all of the other bug reports from people on Windows 7 wouldn't have been for things like text formatting, but rather that the program didn't run at all. I'm also running it on...

Re: Scrivener + MacBook Air = ♥

The "no double negative" also shows up as a result of binary logic. Not Not P is equivalent to P. So if you say, for example "I didn't not go to the store", that is logically equivalent to "I did go to the store" (if you accept "go to the store" as something w...

Re: New Navigation Pane boosts MS Word utility for writers

I still think that Word and a lot of these other programs are missing the ability to reformat entire documents before printing them. :?: I've been doing that to documents since Word 2000, which is the version I first started actually using for school and the like. All you need to do is use styles, ...

Re: 29th Oct - LEE'S DAILY UPDATE

Woo! Progress! The fact that you're releasing fixes so quickly is awesome; too many software projects take forever to even touch on anything worthwhile, much less the big problems. And few developers are so open and interactive. I also look forward to the various fixes in the text engine. This seems...

Re: Dropbox - online backups and synching between computers

Besides that fact the "db says so" there are some basic things techniques that are used to determine exactly what portions of a file need changed. I understand how to do it programmatically. What I'm asking is how I can determine that. Is there some Windows application that can do a binar...

Re: Dropbox - online backups and synching between computers

Huh, so they are atomic to the byte. Well then, my bad on that point. Out of curiosity, how do you determine that it only changes those bytes? As near as I can tell, whenever I edit a Word document, it uploads the whole darn thing back up (since it takes it a while, and some of mine are big files). ...
