I viewed the instructional video on the random name generator. When I used it on my version of Scribener, it wasn’t anything like that in the video. It could not generate any American names. It didn’t have the options for complexity, etc. Is this a difference between Windows and MAC ?
OK, let’s pull this one to the top again. I went to use the Name Generator in my Windows OS version of Scrivener (184.108.40.206 - which the software tells me means I’m up to date) and I request - Male names, American first name, American Surname. Here’s the list I get:
If I go for English first name, American last name, male:
As a general rule, none of these names are particularly useful. Stetson O’Brien and Jan Day come closest, but surely I should get more than 10% of the results falling into the useful category. Am I doing something wrong, or is this just not a particularly good feature on an otherwise wonderful piece of software?
