Re: Scrivener 3, Scrivener for iPad, and changes at apple.

Actually I'm not even sure if I'm allowed to say I have a Silicon machine! So, er, Scrivener runs fine on Silicon but I cannot say how I know that. :) Under no circumstances should you say that you have received a transition kit in the form of a Mac Mini for testing purposes. Some developers showed...

macOs "Operating aids" -> Text reading / Voice output

I regularly use the operating aids to have the manuscript text read out to me in order to check it again. What I have noticed for quite some time: When I use the menu option in Scrivener, the generic voice of "Anna" is always used and not the voice of Siri, which I preset in the control pa...

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

Good god, that's impressive. I have a series in a single project, too, but it's only six books — and two of them are novellas. I can't imagine A) the dedication it takes to write 70 novels, and B) the amount of organization it takes to keep them all straight. I salute you, sir. Thank you much. Scri...

macOs Big Sur (Beta 9)

Just in case you haven't seen this yet ...
The dark mode under Big Sur seem to not look well.
I currently keep it on "light mode" which seem to be fine.
Greetings,

Thanks for your effort to summarize the problems. It was very helpful. I'd better wait until the release because I urgently need Scrivener for the production of my eBooks. Thank you very much.

Big Sur is coming closer ...

Hello swarm intelligence, I am someone who would like to update to the new macOs (11.0) quickly and I know that some of you are probably using the Apple beta program. Have you noticed a fatal showstopper in the now 6th public beta that appears when using Scrivener 3.x under Big Sur?
Greetings, Thomas

Format pending "search and replace"

Scrivener already offers great features for " search " and " search and replace " project wide or within one document. What I do sometimes miss in Scrivener is a format pending search & replace to perform the following task: " A word or sentence " Search and replace...

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

I try to keep the structure as "flat" as possible cause I am putting an entire novel series into one project (Currently 70+ single novels). Folders do separate the single novels, documents represent chapters, No scenes required . I'm not changing the viewpoint (scenes) within one chapter. ...

Well, this was the first developer preview version that Apple issued. A lot will happen before the release in autumn. I am not a prophet, but I assume that Dropbox will definitely work in macOs 11.

Re: Coming changes at Apple's processor architecture for Macs

As for native ARM support; they did it in version 2 of Scrivener for Mac when Apple moved from Motorola to Intel. That implementation (for all software, as far as I'm aware) was to include both Motorola and Intel binaries in the same application bundle (called a "Universal" app, if I reca...

Re: Coming changes at Apple's processor architecture for Macs

In some form, eventually, yes. I have applied for the Developer Quick Start Kit. ... Not to rest on our laurels. :) All the best, Keith Hello Keith, thank you for your quick response.

Coming changes at Apple's processor architecture for Macs

Yesterday the Apple keynote announced the upcoming release of macO's "Big Sur". The completely revised user interface and the system-level integrated translation functions, as well as the switch to Apple's chip architecture, are exciting announcements. I myself had planned to buy a new Mac...

On my iPhone 8 plus it works fine. I unfortunately can not test on my iPad Pro for the moment, because I just put it back to factory settings to bring it in for a repair - I just saw your message too late.

DropBox sync issue ... again?

After today's DropBox update for iOs, the synchronization on my iPadPro 2019 hangs in an endless loop. Is anyone else making the same observation?
