It's safety overlap to reduce the insanity of the beginning of National Novel Writing Month.


Whew. I can go cool down now. No need to panic.

I think I need a brownie.

I think I don't feel like baking brownies.

I still want one.

Garpu, I disagree - it must be worth at least 2 beers in an Irish pub or three in a standard bar - preferably Pints. And if you include the ability to import Word docs without a Word install, that must be a keg - surely? If we can agree on commodity pricing, then I'll meet you pretty much anywhere come Dec. Post official release I'm definitely ready for holiday - I'm thinking the USA - I hear beers cheap there now?

Wait. Does this mean that Scrivener won't be out for "real" before November? Or is this just insurance in case something goes wrong?



Please let it just be insurance. I need to get out of this cave. I want to see the Sun again.

Weather would be pretty crappy in most parts in November, though. ;)

OS: XP or higher (32 or 64 bit).
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) or
higher recommended. Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or higher.
Graphics: 1024 × 768 or higher-resolution monitor.
Hard Disk: 100 megabytes (Mb) for installation.


This is fine except for my netbook (fairly standard) with 1024 x 600.

More incentive to stay in the pub! It's where all the cool novelists hang out in November. ;)

If you get to the states, you'll have to hang out in Portland with Ioa and (I'm guessing) Seattle with MM. Both places have some of the best microbrews in the world, so you won't lack for variety in that department. However, the weather will probably be grey for the duration.

Yeah and it's not like Boston doesn't have its share of pubs...

Depends on the area. Near DC can be nice.

Not that I live there or anything...

Portland microbrews are a seventh wonder, no doubt, but there is the grey thing. The sky here, it's a bit on the monochrome side. But if your keep your nose in a pint it's all right. There's a reason we put our energy into beer.

Squiggle: hopefully earlier than that! We are pushing for October.

Usual wave of anxiety on uninstall, but reinstall worked without a hitch. Lovely work! Looking around I noticed Format > Bibliography /Citations... (which may or may not have been there in 029, attention was on panic writing at the time) Can we have a short explanation of how this works? Is it linkable to Zotero in some way?
Scrivener is now a central part of my existence, so thanks Lee and team.

Zotero is a little tougher than most. The feature works best with stand-alone programs. All it is is a way to set up a program on your computer as your citation manager, then you can all it up with that menu option to get a placeholder ref to paste in. You can set it up in the General options tab.

You're feedback on this is vital to whether it stays, is augmented,
or just deleted.


First of all, thanks for all your work, new beta is working perfectly so far (though I haven't tried it on the netbook yet). As to the above, my feedback is that it is a wonderful addition. It really helps you see where something you are moving will end up. Make the line just a tiny bit more prominent and that would be perfect.
If anybody hates it, perhaps an option to turn it off/on or to set the thickness/color of the indicator would cater to all tastes?

Thanks again, Lee. What kind of beer do you want and where do I send it?
