Re: Some reference links not opening

Thanks for the tip, now at least I have a workaround. But this is a pretty clear indication that Scrivener is messing with the links in some fashion that it shouldn't be, in addition to the upper/lowercase thing I mentioned. Scrivener ought to use the links as-is with no changes, especially if it's ...

Re: Some reference links not opening

You can link to a page by right-clicking its page tab and selecting "Copy Link To Page". You can also link to a specific paragraph. However, I just found that if I closed and quit OneNote entirely, it started working again. But this didn't fix it for Evernote. When it's not working, what i...

Re: Linking from other programs to Scrivener page

Is this feature planned for the Windows version as well? Because that would be awesome. ;-)

Some reference links not opening

I'm having a problem with linking items in Scrivener to notes in Evernote and OneNote. If I launch the links myself, using Win-R and entering the URL, they work, but using "Open Link" in Scrivener from the reference panel does not. What the links that don't work have in common is that they...

UNC paths in references won't open

The subject line says it all: if I drag a network file and drop it on the reference panel, Scrivener creates a reference with a URL of the form file://networkhost/share/path/to/resource, and a correct icon for the resource type. However, double-clicking to launch produces an error message, and "...

Weird menu/keyboard bug

It's not possible to use the View-Outline submenu from the keyboard while in outline mode. Try it by pressing Alt-V, N... all the items on the submenu are disabled. You *have* to use the mouse if you want the submenu to work. It appears to be some sort of focus problem -- just tapping Alt, or hittin...

Re: "This project is not a valid project file"Possible Solution

Another workaround: 1. Double-click the file you want to open 2. When the "not a valid file" message appears, DO NOT CLICK "OK". 3. Double-click the file you want to open a second time. It will open. 4. Click "OK" on the "not a valid file" message. So, it's se...

HOWTO: Make Scrivener projects look&work like files in Win7

I've long been annoyed by the mismatch between Windows' file-orientation and Scrivener's directory orientation... but only recently found a way to fix this. There are two tricks you can use to make Scrivener projects look more-or-less like ordinary Windows files, and open with a double-click just li...

New drag&drop bug (Nano version)

FYI, dragging external-editor-only documents now always displays a can't-drop icon, regardless of where you try to drop them. They can now only be moved using the menu or the keyboard shortcuts, where in previous betas they could be dragged and dropped anywhere. (Also, another long-standing drag-dro...

Tip: How I made kbd shortcuts to move/goto common folders

This is just to mention a tip that others might find useful, and also a plea to make sure this hole (so to speak) doesn't get removed in a future version, because it's darn useful. If you put an & sign in the name of selected top-level folders (and their subfolders), you can determine the keyboa...

Shortcuts, drop hints, and inter-collection drag

Some form of copy drag is on the list already, and indeed it does make sense to use the standard that Explorer sets for for this. Dragging to collections is a form of copying though---really more like automatic shortcuts, but it doesn't move anything anywhere. That is one of the purposes for collec...

More drag and drop feedback

I just found out I was wrong about ctrl+drag -- I took the "[+]" box on the drag cursor to mean that the item being moved was being copied, but it's not. May I suggest changing the hover indicators to not show a [+] box if the item is being moved, rather than copied? It's confusing for som...

Drag and Drop: detailed feedback

FIrst, let me just say that the various d&d bug fixes are awesome! I can drag to create internal references, and drag stuff between projects without losing order, structure, keywords, notes, or external references. Yay! The new hover interface, on the other hand, is kind of "meh". I fi...

Re: External documents in templates?

Wow, I'm glad I read this - I had no idea this functionality was in there - and boy do I have uses for it. Only one thing I'd ask for, and that's to give external files their external icon, or at least a default icon to show they're an external file. The current lack-of-icon makes them indent funny ...

Bug tracking?

This is more of a process suggestion than anything for the product, but it'd be awfully nice if you were using a public-facing bug tracker to accept bug reports. It'd make it a lot easier for us to follow progress on our individual pet issues, without worrying about whether they've been forgotten ab...
