List of most critical things in current beta?

Hi, I have had to put my writing on the shelf a bit as I am back at uni, but I do intend to install one of the recent betas in the near future ... so I was just wondering if you actually have a list of the things you're most interested in getting feedback or bug-hunting about?

Has this gotten any better for you in more recent beta versions? Or are you still experiencing this?

Thanks for your help.


I've only just downloaded the latest beta and haven't played with it yet.

Re: beta 2.9.0.11 [BUG] - <$t:mytag> placeholder not working

Hi galactic president, Sorry for the delayed response. What exactly were you trying to use the counter for? In my tests, <$t> appears to compile fine, but <$t:mytag> doesn't look like a proper format for a tag. If I had a better sense of how you were trying to use it I might be able to suggest an a...

[BUG] bullet styles - similar bug to the one I posted about with the beta, but in production release

Something I noticed a while ago, but which I forgot about, is that bullet styles can link in weird ways. For example: ⋅ I start a bullet list ⋅ I indent a sub-list, and change the style from bullet to capital letters ( for the sub-list only ⋅ I start a new paragraph in ...

Re: [BUG] - Bullet list style indentation

Select a line. Tab. Okay, it tabs the bullet. Select another line. Tab. Bullet indents. Tab. Text indents from the bullet point. Unexpected. Yes, now that you mention it, I remember seeing this one too ... and I think the bullets / list / indentation implementation needs some serious work, because ...

Re: [BUG] - Bullet list style indentation

I have no idea what a " kuser defined Style" is ... the point isn't really about styles, it's about the indentation ... forget I mentioned styles, and just read the parts about indentation.

[LH3372] - <$t:mytag> placeholder not working

I tried to use a custom counter for layout, and the <$t:mytag> did not resolve to a number, it just compiled as exactly the way the placeholder was written.

beta 2.9.0.11 - placeholders ( feedback / wishlist )

As per comment in my other post about tables, there's an issue ( though again, not actually a bug ) in the way placeholders present on screen once compiled, versus how they appear as placeholders, particularly when you are using large font sizes, as I was trying to do for a cover/title page, using p...

Re: beta 2.9.0.11 - tables ( feedback / wishlist )

The other thing about this, which I just discovered after compiling a test usage, is that the lack of capacity to do that which I have already stated, means I don't get an accurate representation until I compile, as to how things will actually layout in the compile ... and this is particularly true ...

beta 2.9.0.11 - tables ( feedback / wishlist )

One criticism I have ( but which isn't a bug ), is that once created, tables do not appear to be editable, and this makes it a little difficult to work with them as a means of framing a page ... it would nice to be able to create a table that fills the whole page, and have greater control over colum...

Re: [BUG] Saveas <filename> incorrect

I explained it properly the first time, I don't have to waste for your understanding if you didn't get the first explanation and cannot see the problem I don't think you read what I wrote correctly ( based on your response ) Hi galacticpresident, That is certainly possible.

Re: [BUG] Saveas <filename> incorrect

I don't think you read what I wrote correctly ( based on your response ), and yes it is a bug, and your "try this" does not in any way contradict what I am saying. [*]BUT when I go inside that folder, the project file is still called "book series backup.scrivx" instead of just &q...

Re: [BUG] Saveas <filename> incorrect

UPDATE: interestingly, I created a backup copy of the main project file ( with a different name ) in the same location in the parent project folder, then modified one copy to be the name I wanted ( matching the project folder name ), so there were now 2 project files with similar but different names...
