Re: Scrivener in the cloud

The type of writing Scrivener was created for is not meant to be written across many devices. Just like the people requesting Scrivener for iPhone or Android phones.... why? Are you really going to sit at work on your lunch break and write a novel on your iPhone? Seriously, it would be better to us...

Re: My wishlist

Metadata I understand this is on the way - it's my top major wish. I hope it includes: - fields that can formatted as dates or numbers - the new metadata fields included in search criteria - and in sort criteria for collections and searches. This would make my life so much easier, specially the dat...

Re: Working with Linux and Mac both ?

Nothing very significant to add to the last poster, but since I rarely use those features, I've been using Scrivener on Linux/Mac for months without troubles. My only word of advice: compile always on the Mac, for a frustration free experience.

Re: strange lag in starting

Quite probably you've been hit by this.

It's seems to be related to library problems. I have this problem on my desktop, but not in any of my two laptops, but have been unable to fix it.

Re: Late to the game

I didn't find Beta 25 (the last Linux beta) much fun to use, because of some issues I had with it. I've just started using Beta 29, and even though it works wonderfully on many levels, it has most of the problems the Beta 26 had for me, such as the popup menu and window handling problems with multi...

Re: Scrivener b29 tarfile available

Thanks a lot for the new beta. Sadly, the disappearing text bug after full screen is still there :( The instructions provided for installation work great but, if you're like me and have your home folder in a different partition, the mv command won't work, instead, try this: sudo cp -r LiteratureAndL...

Re: Late to the game

It seems that the Linux version is a bit of a skunkworks project Well, I don't know about skunkwork. I've been using the last four of five linux betas to get real work done for paid assignments. It has been a lifesaver. Besides the expected glitches of a beta release (and some mistakes from my end)...

Hyperlinks

This has to be pretty simple, but I can't find it anywhere and it's driving me crazy: How does one insert a hyperlink in Scrivener?

I'm writing a review and would like to link to other reviews on the web, but I can't find how to insert the links into my document. :(

Re: 025 Startup time [LOGGED]

The same thing on both computers, 32-bit Ubuntu 11.04. I do see some text. If I run Scrivener from a terminal, after waiting for a long time, Scrivener launches and I get: QtToolBarManager::restoreState(): cannot find a QAction named 'Insert Table', trying to match using 'text' instead. QtToolBarMan...

Re: Non-Debuntu Distros

Two questions:

1. Are you able to insert any type of image into your project? Does the built-in web-browser works?

2. Are you suffering from this bug?

Re: Link please?

Did you erase or uninstall the previous version? It could be that you're running the old executable instead of the new one. It happened to me once :wink:

Re: 025 Startup time [LOGGED]

Thanks for the update. I'm thinking that we did something wrong with our install, because Scrivener on my netbook is working without problems.
