Typography quotes in 2.0

Right, this might not be the right place for this since it (probably) isn't a bug, so feel free to move the post, moderators. Anyway, I've been having a look at 2.0, and it looks great so far. However, in the earlier versions, there was a typography preference where you could set typographer's quote...

Yes, it's very nice, and I also find myself wanting one, although I already have a MBP, and I really have more use for a screen I could connect it to... But if you think the other prices quoted here are bad, I just found out that it starts at 14,290 kroner here in Norway. And according to my currenc...

The end credits are on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RthZgszykLs I have to concede with the others; the game is brilliant. As is the song, of course. I'm very happy that the developers not only weaved a narrative and script in amongst the puzzles, but a wonderfully funny narrative and scri...

This post made me think of a quote from a novel by Robert Rankin, but it's ages since I last read anything by him, and now I can't seem to remember it. Anyway, the novel in question -- one of the "Armageddon: The Musical" trilogy -- switches from third person to first person when a detecti...

I experienced the project statistics hang just once with 1.10, but I thought I'd try the new beta just the same. There is no project statistics hang, but in the script section of the statistics window, it says 0 pages no matter how much text there is. Additionally, there are just zeroes in the selec...

Another bug:

I can't seem to copy/cut and paste while in comic book script mode. The beach ball appears again and spins until I forcefully quit the application.

Once again, nothing in the Console.

Came across another bug: When typing some dialogue in the comic book template, hitting tab for a parenthetical, writing something like 'cont', and then tab or return, I get the beach ball, which just keeps on spinning and spinning for ages. Nothing happens, and eventually, I have to forcefully quit ...

In script mode -- both screenplay and comic book -- there's an odd glitch whenever I use Edit Scrivenings. When I press tab to type a character name, the cursor stays flush left. But as soon as I enter something, the cursor hops over to the correct place, and the character name is written where it s...

Sorry about the console, I completely forgot. Anyway, glad to hear that the bug will be fixed. That sound is annoying -- especially after several pages and panels and character names followed by parentheses. I also remembered something I've experienced in previous editions. Whenever I enter a charac...

Well, I've given the new beta a whirl, and I've come across something odd. When using the comic script template and the Edit Scrivenings mode, I get an error sound when pressing tab after typing 'page', 'panel' and after character names in dialogue. The sound is not to be heard if I edit a single do...

Thanks for the update. Nice to be able to turn off the capitalization of 'i', and the comic book template is a terrific addtion. However, I just installed the new version, and I've seen a bug which isn't anything serious. It's just a bit annoying: When editing the card headers on the corkboard, the ...

Strange -- the first checkbox beneath Editor Options in the pane I'm getting is "Typewriter scrolling".
