There's an old saying in the software business, "If you don't have time to do it right, you probably won't have time to do it over either." Small businesses don't get the luxury of saying, "OOPS! Never mind!", the way big companies do. A major stumble can be fatal to a small business.
No, V1.9 isn't as pretty as V3, but it is functional and still better than most of the Windows competition. Though there are a few that are VERY good! If you simply can't use V1.9, then maybe you should consider changing to one of them.

Be cautious. There are still some show-stopping bugs in there. In my case, this bug, which corrupts script formats, means I can't even read my existing work. Like you, I've been hoping to get started with the beta, but this is not listed as fixed yet in the latest release (that expires in Feb).xenonexia wrote:I'm just wondering, however, if anyone might tell me about the experience of using the 2.9 beta that ends mid December. Does it function well enough to actually transfer work and use it on a daily basis as a main editor?

I must admit I am frustrated with the Windows development cycle. It seems that we always hear that the Win version "will catch up" with the Mac version but it does not ever seem to.
The fact that now a Linux version will (IMHO) compete for development resources is adding a little salt to the wound that has remained open for a few years now.

This is not true. Development of the Linux version was abandoned quite some time ago and there are no plans to restart it at this time. Certainly not before the release of Win Scriv 3.

I just spent a minute at Atomic's site, and see that it has nothing comparable to the compiler (only exports to Word doc), and only runs on Windows. That's two large gaps, at least for me. I don't see anything it has that Windows 1.9 Scrivener does not.
So, what do you mean by "ahead"? Or did I miss something?
