Re: [B23] Project Search for Custom Meta-Data with operator "Any Word" yields invalid results

Additional notes on this bug. When we use the dropdown to restrict the search to our meta data field , the search's background prompt will display "All (Any Word)" rather than show the field specified. Also finding that if we replicate our meta data field in Doc Notes for each document, th...

[B23] Project Search for Custom Meta-Data with operator "Any Word" yields invalid results

Greetings -- To reproduce this behavor, create a Custom Meta Data field in the Tutorial and add unique words to the field in three different documents. I used r1, r2 and r3. Now do a Project Search for the words, in my case "r1 r2 r3". The expected results are displayed when we search in &...

[LH832] Outliner item counts via Binder/Collection select are not accurate

Hi -- Items selected in the Binder or Collection are listed in the outliner as expected, but the item count is not updated to reflect the selections. outlineitemcount2.png We'll sometimes be able to update the item count by clicking back and forward in the pane history, but the count tends to be thr...

Re: Populate a Collection from UUIDs on the Clipboard

The only supported method for accessing documents within a Scrivener project is Scrivener itself. Thanks Katherine. These are documents I would like to access within Scrivener; I've merely identified them by other means. I'd respectfully draw your attention to the x-scrivener-item protocol that now...

Populate a Collection from UUIDs on the Clipboard

Greetings -- As Scrivener supports book-length projects in an openly accessible data format, there are times we’ll want to use Scrivener to perform operations on a set of binder documents identified by a mechanism outside the program, or enumerated informally within it. For example, we might use a W...

Re: Release on Aug 30 confirmed?

I don't know what you are talking about, but this is, in fact, the fourth sentence in the last beta 21 release notes. You're right; MM did post that, and thanks for the reminder. Of course a target release date isn't a scheduled release date. Some folks are going to be annoyed at a missed target, o...

Re: Release on Aug 30 confirmed?

It looks like the scheduled day will be postponed. There is no scheduled release date, at least not one that has been made known to the user community. The co-developer of Scrivener for Windows made a personal commitment to having ScrivW3 ready for release on 8/30. That does not imply a release is ...

Converting a same-project external Bookmark to an internal Bookmark, or moving one into a Collection

Greetings - I'm going to have quite a few bookmarks that use the new external bookmark URIs, but that link to the very project in which they reside. Will there be a way to convert these to traditional bookmarks, or to move them into a Collection? The external bookmark format has some great advantage...

[RC1] Doc links of type x-scrivener-item do not work from Bookmarks in Quick Reference window

Background: The new style of document link beginning with x-scrivener-item invokes a protocol and includes a file path, and thus can open a Scrivener document directly (via its own project) from a command line, or an outside program, or another Scriv project, or a browser link. Bug?: These links wor...

Just a cosmetic note as we approach the production release. When we're viewing a WebArchive, the context menu items Save Page and View Page Source are not operational. When we're viewing a remote site in a Scrivener pane, commands including Open link in new tab , Open link in new window , Save Image...

Re: [LH3556] Dragging Bookmarks to other bookmark sets not functioning

Sorry to reiterate on a filed issue, but as we're testing a Release Candidate I'd like to remind the team about this most prominent bug. We can't yet rearrange bookmarks, or move them from pane to pane, and there are other odd outcomes when we multiselect and drag.

Re: Development Lead

Tiho* has always been the lead developer for Scrivener on Windows. So in the context of the Windows beta, the only thing to notice is if he's not credited as the lead. I don't think so. Lee was the sole signatory of the "horse's mouth" memo of late June, making a personal commitment to a ...

Re: Moving references between documents

In 1.9x? I'm guessing the most avid and knowledgeable Windows forum participants have ventured on to the Beta releases. (My 1.9x was clobbered in the raft of Beta installs, otherwise I'd fire it up and refresh my recall.) In the Beta, the capability to move Bookmarks is broken as of the past few rel...

Re: Bug Beta 18: Keyboard navigation Alt+Shift+Up for Previous Document doesn't work

Yep, sorry, it was indeed my keyboard, which also swallows that key combo in Notepad++. The other keyboard recognizes it in both programs. No bug.

Thanks Bryan

Bug Beta 18: Keyboard navigation Alt+Shift+Up for Previous Document doesn't work

Hi - The Navigate menu version of Go To Previous Document works properly, but the keyboard shortcut Alt+Shift+Up does not. If we hold down Alt and Shift and try each of the four arrow keys, we'll see the expected navigation on three of them but stasis on Alt+Shift+Up. Cheers - Jerome Version: 2.9.0....
