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,

Mark

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

Hello Gang,

I've installed 2908 under CrossOver 17.1—my year finished just before they launched v. 17.5 and they've pushed their prices up so much … GBP48, up from GBP35 … so I'm not sure I can justify that expense for the minimal use I make of it—and only had the 17.1 installer.

Anyway, first off ClamXAV anti-virus quarantined one of the main .dll files as having a trojan, so I posted in another thread but it got buried. So I cleared it all out, and thought "That's it, then." Just now, ClamXAV gave me an update, including the scanning engine, and I thought I'd try again. This time, installed without problem.

So, two bits of good news:

(1) it now exits cleanly.
(2) footnote markers now work, and more importantly without the problem that we have to get round in Chinese on the Mac.

I think I might see if Shirley in China is willing to give it a try as it'd be great if we can both be on version 3.

Mark

Thanks for sharing with us !! I'll be testing it out at some point on Nova launcher Prime.

Just install whatever theme you like under the same Wine setup you've installed Scrivener in. I installed the Zune theme, and it looks very nice.

You can also use stylesheets. https://www.literatureandlatte.com/foru ... 57&t=53766 I haven't found one I really like, but to be fair, I haven't had time to really poke at it, either.

Thank you but how to install themes? I'm completely lost...
Here is what I get with the latest Beta under Wine / Ubuntu 18.10

How can I change this ?

All my best!

FYI, the new beta has a dark mode that is freaking awesome. It's solved all the UI issues I was having with WINE's default theme conflicting with Scrivener.

How do I turn on Dark Mode? I've been poking around in the menus and can't seem to find it.

Under Options, in the startup tab. :)
