I’m really not trying to start something; too, well, what is it, experienced? to have other than kindly attitudes taken, here, or in fact in other venues as well.
You as a team are releasing increasingly capable versions of an elegant software construction. Yet how you guys are talking with us (or not) feels ever increasing in its distance.
I wanted to know what’s what with Version 7, such as state of Scrivenings mode, which has gained interest here.
I managed to shut the release notes that could be viewed for a moment after the update, so tried to find them elsewhere.
In your release thread, none. With a site-targeted Google search, nothing showed. I decided to run the actual installer, and where to download it is only under a post labelled November 2017. I got it and ran it, only to find no release or feature notes were offered this time at all.
To my feeling, it’s hard to separate this from other situations, such as the increasingly distanced replies (or just not) here where we’re being your testers.
Or the complete denial for suggestions others have made and i’ve tried to support, not least because I could benefit too, about very minor improvements to visibility in the UX, which can make all the difference in real ability to use Scrivener, for any of us who so our best with anything less than youth-perfect eyes.
Honestly, I don’t understand this, if I have understood and accepted what appears to be Keith’s actuality beside his stated motif, that once its felt you’ve been critical, you aren’t to be spoken with again. One person can do this, but when it becomes a general trend, when friendliness itself is left by the wayside, I don’t think you are helping yourselves, or then it comes down to, us.
t’s very easy to succumb to the feeling of being on the spot, to the flood that can open with a forum, yes.
Yet I think to do so is what invites the problems. I’ve also seen it work in an entirely different way – and the ebbs and flows that arise very quickly when those practitioners stumble. It’s a pretty direct relationship, would have to think, and they save themselves each time by coming back as cleverly human, interested, responsive, enccouraging, and friendly.
Those other friends of mine mean what they do, intend it. I suspect you Scrivenerish actually do just as much.
I’ve lived in England, and a host of other worldly places for long acquaintances, and could be very specific as to how this shouldn’t be any problem, especially in our contemporary world, with local practices or cultures. Even of software itself
Well, I probably sound as I have been, someone who consults on problems. I guess I’ll just have to offer it as is, with all the intention first stated, and hope it is the help I suspect it can be.
Anyway, release notes? Feature comment, as in what I first wanted to know, the state of Scrivenings? Thanks.
Best to each of you,
