What works

Overall the program works well except this one issue I've run into which impacts the final compiled document.

What does not

Page Setup dialog box doesn't show when clicked from the File Menu.  Shortcut doesn't work either.

This allows the user to configure page margins for the project, which impacts the compiled document.

Page Setup - Update
by NA on Wednesday June 16th 2021, 23:10
After reading this post I wanted to do additional testing to try and rule out a difference in distributions / versions.


Installed: Ubuntu 20.04.1, PopOS 20.10 and I installed the following side by side not installing all updates after install.
Installed: Wine 6.10
Installed: Latest winetricks from
Installed: Corefonts, speech SDK 5.1, dotnet 4.62 which includes a few previous dotnets versions automatically from winetricks.
Installed: Scrivener 3.0.1 32bit.
Created a blank document.
Clicked on Page Setup... from the menu option.

Result: Nothing happens in either virtual machine. No window and no output in the terminal that launched Scriv.

Can you share a bit more information that might of allowed your Page Setup window to load? Are you running cups? Have additional features installed via winetricks?

You're onto something! For the sake of testing, I stopped cups, and ran Scrivener. The page layout dialogue wouldn't come up. I started cups, and it did. So, yes, you do need to be running a print server for it to work. (I've got cups always running, so I never bumped into it.)

That was the issue.

Cups is running by default on the two test machines and my personal but no printer was installed.

Installed the cups-brf-printer which is the generic default printer, accepted the defaults when adding a new printer. I used this as I don't have a printer.

Restarted Scriv and the Page Setup showed up.

Made changes to the margins, did a few compiles the adjustments did work.

Thanks for responding quickly with the your results.
