Hello

Is there any way to label a connector line in Scapple (Windows)?

I want to create a description of the connection between two topics.
e.g. If I have an arrow from topic A to topic B, I want to add a label describing the arrow itself.
i.e. I want a single arrow with text applied to it. No, I do not want the arrow broken into two smaller arrows because that would have a different semantic meaning.

With thanks

J

PS I have just discovered that on the Apple version (v1.3) there seems to be an option called "Connection Label" on the Notes menu.
(see: https://youtu.be/4cOCqK_XHh8?t=140)

However, on my Windows version (1.0.0.0) there doesn't seem to have that option.

Is there any plan to create an equivalent "version 1.3 on Windows that would also have "Connection Labels"?

Yes, in multiple threads L&L has stated that once Scrivener 3 for Windows is released out of beta, they will work on bringing Scapple up to date.

Oh.... Thank you for letting me know.

Out of interest has Scrivener 3 for Windows been in Beta for long?
Do we have any sense of when this might happen?

Lack of Connector Labels is pretty much a deal-breaker for me...

Let's put it this way, Mac v.3 was feature complete when it was put out for (internal) beta testing and it was about 10 months before it was finally launched. Windows v.3 beta was made public in Nov 2017 even though it was and is far from feature complete; it is a public beta so those using both platforms can test it cross-platform (perhaps among other reasons).

So you can make your own estimate as to when it will be ready for launch, as L&L won't make an announcement until they're sure it's ready.
