Re: Not remembering formatting when switching between files

Can someone please answer me? I realise the Windows version has one developer who's been on holiday, but I asked the question two months ago and nobody has even indicated a level of interest. Do I need to go somewhere else to log a bug?

The one thing that won't happen is a mercurial figure barging into meeting rooms demanding certain things of entire product lines (e.g. no Flash), and having the clout to get his way. Maybe.

Tapatalk does a plugin. I don't know whether there's a cost associated with the plugin, but there's certainly a cost associated with buying the app. Anyway, it exists.

Re: "The forums ARE a part of Scrivener"

Sorry to come blustering in as a brand new customer, but I really, really don't want this in the iOS Scrivener. Apart from creating an unnecessary distraction (lack of distraction is one of the best things about the iPad), plugging in features like this would add time and complexity to development a...

Re: 'Duplicate' command duplicates the wrong document

The duplicated text is from a different document every time, seemingly at random It's too late to check now, but I suspect WinScriv was moving existing documents when I asked it to duplicate a document. Why? Because I lost quite a few documents that were never recovered, and the number of lost docu...

Re: The mysterious disappearing file

If your external drive is inaccessible, Lion's TM stores a temporary backup (increments only, I assume) on the main drive. When it sees your external drive again, it runs a proper backup and removes the local temp backup. That's the default behaviour, although it can be turned off . I don't know whe...

Re: 'Duplicate' command duplicates the wrong document

I went home and opened the project in MacScriv. Immediately it popped up a message about the need to recover some files (I wish I had taken a screen shot!), then opened the project normally. Document duplication worked, and the recovered files were indeed missing from my project. This morning, back ...

Re: 'Duplicate' command duplicates the wrong document

Thanks for your reply. Do you notice a pattern? Like is the duplicated text always from the above document or below document? (From the document you are trying to duplicate...) The duplicated text is from a different document every time, seemingly at random (although the order of the documents in th...

'Duplicate' command duplicates the wrong document

This is a tricky one to describe, and even harder to search by keyword — I searched the forums but found nothing. When I use the 'duplicate' command to duplicate a document, the title is duplicated correctly but the content is taken from another document in the same project. Also, the content that's...

Re: Not remembering formatting when switching between files

Is there any point in me building a test case for this? If you have no interest or time, I'll blow away all my tables and make do with rich text.

Re: Not remembering formatting when switching between files

This exact problem happens in Scrivener for Windows 1.0.3, to the point that it repeatedly joins together separate tables. Even a simple workaround would do for the time being, but I cannot make it stop happening, and it's affecting my work. Any advice (or hopefully a view to fixing the bug!) would ...
