Re: Session Target Time Reset Not Working

This is an ongoing issue that I assume is late on the list of things to sort out, It's been like this for many beta versions. Also, if you you don't have allow negatives ticked, and you cut more text than you have written for the day and paste it, your word count will reflect the number of words in ...

Re: Beta 20: Project targets not resetting word counts again or still

This is still a thing. Actually this beta's worse than the last since at least the last one worked with the on a set time each day setting at least 50% of the time. But I gotta say, I do love the popup that shows when you hit the mark. Just hate having to manually reset after I've already started fo...

Beta 25: Select text turns on Insert

A few times now, I've used my mouse to highlight text to delete and had the insert command come on instead. I'm definitely not hitting the insert button by mistake because they're not that close together.

Re: unable to verify your activation for more then two months

Yep, it's back. Sigh. At least we had a short reprieve.

Re: Beta 20: Project targets not resetting word counts again or still

In case it helps: ... basically, if you are working actively in the project, it will reset, if not or if the computer is off, it will not. Or at least that is my experience. That's probably a very helpful observation into why your experience differs, and how this ought to get fixed... Words cut fro...

Re: [LH3948] Bug 2.9.0.22 beta, compile window disappears completely when reducing its size

I use 150 scaling on a widescreen and have had issues with the compile window in the past. It was too big when epub was selected and the buttons fell under the taskbar. Today, that's no longer the case. I can resize the width, but not the height, but I don't need to because it's fitting perfectly wi...

RC2: Cut and paste of text causes session count to change

Cutting text from one document and pasting it into another causes the session word count to change to whatever number of words were cut and pasted.

This is random, but it's happened to me more than once.

Re: Beta 20: Project targets not resetting word counts again or still

Words cut from one document and pasted in another are added to the session count. The overall target remains the same.

Re: Beta 20: Project targets not resetting word counts again or still

In case it helps: Was working at midnight on the project set to reset at that time. It did reset while I was working. Had finished with the project set to reset at 7am, and closed it before midnight. It did not reset. So basically, if you are working actively in the project, it will reset, if not or...

Re: Beta 20: Project targets not resetting word counts again or still

Not for me. Mine was still showing yesterday's word count for both projects this morning when I turned it on. This also throws off the way session targets are generated when set to automatically generate based on the draft deadline. Trust me, I want to throw my money at L&L for the upgrade!!! Wh...

Re: Beta 20: Project targets not resetting word counts again or still

And I will also say if this is a critical aspect of your work then as its been stated over and over again " Don't use the Beta " for critical work unless you're able/willing to put up with all its current and future flaws until release. And although its not been mentioned, if you're just ...

Beta 20: Project targets not resetting word counts again or still

I have 2 projects that I'm working on simultaneously. Both are set to reset the word count at a set time each day. One is midnight, one is seven in the morning. After installing the new version yesterday, neither project had reset this morning when I opened them. I'm not sure if this was because I s...

Re: No backups?

I have checked the folders and even made a new one and pointed the beta there. Then I set the beta to back up on save and hit save. Got the popup saying it was saving as I always do. Looked in the folder, and nothing, so I tried it a few more times. Looked in the folder for 1.9 and there were all th...

Re: No backups?

No, but I think I figured it out.

It is backing up.

I'm running the beta version in it's own folder and I also still use 1.9 because the compile function of the beta has some issues still, and the beta is backing up to the 1.9 folder and not the folder specified in the beta version's options.
