Incorrect subheading on forum [ADDRESSED]

Currently, if you take a look at the banner at the top of every forum page, it proudly states "Literature and Latte" Next to a picture of a book and a mug (presumably of the aforementioned latte). However, below that, it says: "A place for readers, writers, coffee drinkers and tautolo...

Re: Linux users please read

I know. There just seemed to be some confusion over what EULA violations you were referring to, so I was attempting to clarify with more detail. Gotta love American copyright law. They could put in a clause of one of these EULAs "must buy us a new car" and no one would realize it until all...

Re: Dropbox - online backups and synching between computers

I think you may be mistaken here. I'm pretty certain that Dropbox is only atomic to the file level, not the byte level. So it uploads the entire changed Word file--not just the "parts that changed". I am also a bit confused on the "parts that changed" bit. Word's file formats are...

Re: Linux users please read

Actually, it's not WINE itself that would cause a problem, it's random .dll files and other supporting libraries. Consider, for instance, that in order to run Scrivener on Windows, you need to use a Microsoft C++ API library. This is not outside the realm of possibility. Said library has its own EUL...

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

I think it's pretty clear there's a keyword issue (although one of the devs should confirm). I think the character corruption is a different one, though. I know Lee's working on that sort of thing in general.

If you're really worried, you could just excise the steamy parts before sending ;)

Re: Overly Thin Resize Handles

Yeah, I did resize stuff. I'm just saying getting the cursor to the point where it will resize is the hard part :D

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

I'm not particularly worried. I'm a software developer for my main job, and I've definitely had to analyze customer data and that sort of thing. At most, when discussing with co-workers, we might be like "So Harry put in an order for blah blah blah", but what we're really interested in is ...

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

I have sent (links to) files to that e-mail address, so that should help some. I forgot to mention that I hope y'all don't keep these files or use any of the scrivenings in them or anything against us in the future. :) Since a bunch of people have sent you files, I assume you're just using them to t...

Overly Thin Resize Handles[BUG LOGGED]

This is a minor issue, and may very well fall more under "feature request", but I'd still like to get it out there. I feel like the boundaries between the different panels, which can be gripped to resize things, are too thin on the Windows version. I am talking about (for example) this: ht...

Re: Question Mark in File Name

The question mark not being acceptable is a aspect of the underlying filesystem (presumably NTFS), and not an aspect of any programs in particular. That said, Scrivener should prevent you from using one of the disallowed characters in file names: \ / : * ? " < > | I think as a furthermore on th...

Re: Import of Mac files makes folders.

In another thread, someone found that Windows and Mac start from different index values when writing out keywords (Windows starts at 1, Mac at 0, I believe), and this may be related.

When I get home tonight, I'll get some files sent the way of that e-mail address.

Re: Underwhelmed But Optimistic

Tetchy and reasonable, and conveniently enough, pretty much everyone here is someone who enjoys typing hundreds of words in order to communicate an idea. It makes it easier to continue communicating.

Re: Autosave request

To add my two cents: I've been using Word 2010 on Windows 7 with Dropbox for the past several months for one of my writing projects. In general, I've had no problems, except that on rare occasions, Word suddenly considers the file to be read-only, and I have to close out and re-open the file to get ...

Re: Changing the size of tab-indents

You should be able to play with the little triangles on the ruler at the top to control indents. Though there are some quirks. Because they had to implement an RTF parser from scratch, a lot of the text formatting is still rough and half-worky.

Re: Using mac and windows versions

That would probably explain why I was having trouble bringing my ScrivMac projects over to ScrivWin! Dragging stuff by binders worked, but it lost all my keywords and labels and such.

It wouldn't surprise me if the Windows version for some reason chokes on it being 0 (unexpected value?).
