Hi Beta Users,

This will be a short update today.

We are currently investigating the miriad of rich text issues reported. This, as we suspected, is taking time and likely to take the majority of this week.

We will keep you posted


Keep up the great work Lee! :mrgreen:

Thanks for the update!

Thanks for the update, but I wanted to say that my copy is running pretty great right now! I started my novel at midnight and have written entirely in Scrivener when I thought I wasn’t going to. It’s typing great, haven’t had any of the text lag turn up since the last hotfix. All of the word count and project trackers are functioning, and having them really pushes you to write! I set mine last night to 3000 (the number of words I did NOV 1 last year) and had the words written before I went to bed.

Just thought that among all the bug reports you could use a success story. I’m loving it, and thank you for all your hard work.

Thanks for the update! Going to add that I, too, am enjoying the heck out of using Scrivener for NaNo. I usually don’t reach my 1667 word goal easily at all but I pretty much breezed through it and had nearly a thousand more. So, well, thanks for a great program! I might actually win at NaNo this year.

Thanks for the update! Even if we don’t get to play with a new version today, it’s great to read about progress.

I’m really enjoying Scrivener’s organizational and writer-friendly design. Using a different application to do the actual writing for now, but I still plug everything back into Scrivener – it’s my base of operations for NaNo this year.

I’ve just started my first NaNoWriMo and both my wife and I are using Scrivener; she the Mac version, and I the Windows version. I have to say that I think it’s going to be awesome using Scrivener, and I wish you all the best in your efforts to turn this out. I hope that I and the other people on the site can help make a difference ^^

Progress = good.


Thank you all so much for your kind words - I really needed that :slight_smile:


Hey, just wanted to add my encouragement–while the formatting-retention stuff is slightly inconvenient, the functionality of the program more than makes up for it. Like someone else who already posted, I am also having WAY more success with NaNo than ever before, which I attribute to being able to break things down into manageable chunks with the index cards to manage the overarching story flow. I don’t think I’d ever go back to my old way of writing.
