Re: Placeholder Bug

Thanks for the sample project, that allowed me to see the bug straight away. To say the code that handles this is complicated is an understatement. Looking at the issue and logging different results in the code, I found that the search ranges were off for the reference tag replacements. I had a hun...

Re: Placeholder Bug

Hi. I updated to v3.0.2 today. Unfortunately the placeholder bug is still not fixed (may be a different bug). Instead of trying to give a complete explanation I have attached a project that reproduces the bug. But in summary, introducing two placeholders and referencing them works fine. When a third...

Re: Title as run-in head

I think I have the answer. I have my Chapters, Sections, and Subsections set up as folders. The folder itself contains no text, all of my text is entered into files that are in the folders. In the compile settings a separator has to be defined between folders and files, and this must be causing the ...

I do see the effect in the layout tile but not in the compiled document.

Title as run-in head

I'm not sure whether I'm having trouble with the " title as run-in head" compile option or I just don't understand what it does. My understanding is that instead of this: Title Text Paragraph text. I'd get this: Title Text Paragraph text. Am I wrong? If I'm right, then checking the " ...

Re: Placeholder Bug

By all means. You can use the File/Back Up/Back Up To... command to create a zipped copy and attach it to a PM, or if that is too large, send it via email to our support address , and mention the forum thread URL in case someone else gets to it first. I’ll try to keep an eye out though since the po...

Re: Placeholder Bug

Hmm, I’m not getting that crash with a quick test: ⋅  Created a new blank project. ⋅  Copied and pasted your example text into the editor. ⋅  Compiled using default settings. Print preview result: 1 1 1 It might need additional compile settings, a specific file type, e...

Re: Placeholder Bug

Are you still getting this behaviour in 3.0.1? I think this has been fixed, or at least I can no longer reproduce it using your tests. Hi AmberV. No I'm not getting this behaviour but there is still a placeholder bug in 3.0.1. It seems that if you have two (or more) autonumber placeholders, then re...

Re: Placeholder Bug

This is indeed a bug. The code is using an accumulative length change in calculating what to search for next instead of the length change for the current loop, causing it to skip placeholders and throw an exception if it gets to a certain point. I've fixed this for 3.0.1 - thanks for reporting it. ...

Placeholder Bug

There seems to be a bug in Scrivener 3 on how many times you can use auto-numbering placeholders to cross-reference. It seems you can only reference twice before Scrivener treats the reference as plain text. Addition of more references results in a refusal to compile (the compiler seems to be stuck ...

Re: 1.2.5 problem with RTF Reader

Same here. Once I turned off font hinting everything looks great. Also happy to report that drag&drop in the binder no longer causes crashes. Cheers! This is intermittent for me. If I take it off then restart Scrivener, the document I was working on looks fine. However, each time I create a new...
