I have tried the Linux version once, with not much success (see here), but I bought Scrivener for Windows some months ago and recently had the idea of just trying my Windows version under Wine now.
edit: oh, and it is still the same netbook, but with latest Ubuntu 12.04 updates and the latest Scrivener Windows version, I also made a fresh Wine installation beforehand
It works pretty good, it is actually usable with Wine but I still recognized two/three isses:
- When I opened a short story template, I couldn't view the included sample pdf of the compile, it only showed me a blank white pdf. Adding my own Pdf's though worked! Also the pdf is still viewable under windows.
- When creating a character or sheet list via "create new/template/character sketch", it creates a new text item but it doesn't copy the template texts and just creates an empty text object. Works under windows but the created templates under Linux are obviously still empty.
- Spelling for other languages (german in my case) also doesn't seem to work with the wine variant, it fails to download them. But I think this is a well known issue.
Anyways, I might report more issues if I stumble upon them. Suggestions for fixes or any hope for addition into the soon to be fixed list highly appreciated for sure
Thank you, bye!
