I'd bug report the footnote thing. It sounds like a Scrivener issue, not a WINE one. I"m having issues with Scrivener not exiting cleanly.

Yes, I've mentioned the footnote thing in the thread I started on a specific problem with using the footnote marker and Chinese.

And yes, Scrivener doesn't exit cleanly for me ,,, I have to exit CrossOver to do it fully. Not that is really a problem for me.

Thanks,

Hrmmm....this sounds like a Scrivener bug. I'm wondering if it just isn't an issue for those of us not on Linux or OSX? Have to wonder if this might be the cause of the random hangs that people have mentioned. (If it's lazy unloading from memory, that could be an issue in larger projects.)

Started a thread here: viewtopic.php?f=57&t=50652 It's the only WINE program I have that issue with.

Hello All,

Any idea to change the layout/skin of Scrivener 2.9 run under Wine?

It is hard to write with the so old-fashioned Windows 3 skin :-)

Thank you!
My very best,
David
