Overwriting a project with a new template leaves snapshots

I'm on version 1.0.3. Here my bug: I created a new project from the fiction template giving it the same name my old project had. Scrivener alerted me that the old project was going to be overwritten. So far so good (I had already saved it under a different name, just in case. I really intended to st...

Outline 4D style timeline

Do you know outline 4D? The timeline view and track list tool are fantastic to keep track of any keywords or sets of keywords you wish. Very flexible. No templates or such things. I'm aware that this wouldn't be a short term development. But maybe for the 2.0 release... *hopefully* I think it would ...

I agree. It's starting to be annoying. And mind that the project I am talking about is only about 20000 words by now...

Re: synopsis bug

thank you, Clive. I appreciate your backup on this matter :) . I have to admit that I was a little bit discouraged to post other observations by not receiving any response to my latest postings, but I told myself MAYBE even the scrivener support team celebrates Christmas and needs to get some prepar...

duplication bug

I don't know if this has already been reported. When duplicating a document, the image in the synopsis card gets lost (only in the new document).

scrivener crash

I don't know what happened. I used edit/link and created a link to a website. When I clicked on the link in the editor, I received a warning that scrivener wasn't working properly and would be shut down. When I opened the project once more, the text passage in the editor was no link anymore. I repea...

Re: Lost text on corkboard cards

I now know how to reproduce the loss of synopsis text. When describing another synopsis related issue to amber, I suddenly understood the problem. The subject is the following: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=16720&p=116438#p116438 The steps are these: Another qu...

Re: synopsis bug

I made some further investigations. Even if in step 3. I simply change the text in the editor, the synopsis text vanishes. To make the text stick to the synopsis card you need to click into the synopsis field once. After that, deleting from or changing in the editor seems to be save... Ah and not to...

Re: synopsis bug

On the matter of whether undo should impact the main editor though, it should not. Each portion of the interface has its own undo stack. This way a minor mistake in the index card for 45 minutes ago is not unreachable thanks to all of the edits in the main editor; vice versa; etc. I understand. So ...

synopsis bug

I think I found a real bug here. 1. I opened a document in the editor. 2. I selected my synopsis text (from the inspector) 3. I dragged the synopsis text into the editor 4. I decided otherwise and clicked edit/undo 5. the synopsis text remained inside the editor, AND 6. the synopsis filled with the ...

Re: can i delete these files...

You're absolutely right! But you know how it is - sometimes you (no maybe not YOU :wink: ) get panicky about deleting something imagining to corrupt not only the project, but the software, your computer or even the whole WWW - at least I do sometimes... when creative urges overpower me... Better ask...

Re: can i delete these files...

Yes, thanks, I know this by now :D . I suppose the corrupted folder I recently deleted was a relict of some project I created from a wrong template in the very beginning of my use of scrivener because there were no contents in the folders. In fact I DID mess up my project once, that was, when I fina...

Re: Lost text on corkboard cards

I usually followed the steps suggested for each new version. So whenever it was suggested to uninstall a version before install the next I did that, if it wasn't suggested I didn't. In my download folder I find: 08 Nov 1.0.0.0 23 Nov 1.0.3 (I think, this must have been the 1.0.3 beta before Lee chan...
