RC8 - Can't open Quick Search result on direct click

Hi - In RC8 we can no longer click directly on a Quick Search result to open it in the editor pane: QuickSearchIndirectClick.png 1. Searching for "Images" in Tutorial. First result is "Key Concepts" but nothing happens when we left click or right click on it. We can click on some...

Sorting on Outliner column triggers an Expand All, item count unchanged

Hi - When we click on an outliner column to sort, we get a sorted view with all of the subdocuments expanded. Hard to tell if this behavior is intentional, as it isn't discussed in "Sorting by Columns", section 8.3.4 of the Mac Manual. But intentional or not, the Item counter isn't updated...

Re: RC7 - Text editing in right pane causes outliner expansion and Multiple Selection in left

Update: This phenomenon persisted in RC7 through every new run of Scrivener. But having written it up, I tried something new today: I turned off the Internal Log Console under Options > General > Warnings . The undesired outliner expansion ceased with the restart of Scrivener, and has not resumed ev...

RC7 - Text editing in right pane causes outliner expansion and Multiple Selection in left

Hi - When editing in a split pane, I'm getting an unwanted Outliner expansion in the opposite pane with the first character entered, followed by an unwanted Multiple Selection with the second character entered. 1. I have an outliner view of the folder Future Blanks in the left pane, and I'm about to...

Context Menu on Links

Hi - When we right-click on an external link in RC7, our only link-related context menu option is Unlink . I was actually hoping to Edit, and I see in the Mac manual, on p386, that we're expecting Open Link, Copy Link, Edit Link, and Remove Link on the context menu. It's no bug, just something the t...

Re: Split window can't be changed to another page

If you're on the Beta, try Navigate > Binder Selection Affects. If you're on release 1.9x, the same command is around somewhere on the menu.

Emoji also work splendidly as attention-grabbing flags in a synopsis. (Unsupported in this forum, unfortunately!)

Re: Severe lag in 2.9.9.7

I'd recommend you check your autosave interval at File > Options > General > Saving. Default is set quite low as I recall. Mine is set to 55 seconds of inactivity, and if I ever lose so much as a paragraph with that value, I'll just write a better one.

Re: [LH4563] RC7 - Dragging doc of type "Research File as Shortcut" between projects creates a dead document

Thanks for logging these, MM. For database and scripting purposes, I set every document with a sequential DocID carried on from Scrivener V1, and a matching bar code. I generate these dressed-up docs by script into a scratch project, then drag them into the production project. So all new documents c...

Re: RC7 - Local links within web pages now misfire

Update 2: I had it right the first time. This is a real bug. RC7 ignores our initial toggle for Allow limited navigation in web pages , and treats the setting as if it were turned off. If the toggle is initially checked, we must uncheck it, select Apply , check it again, and select OK before our loc...

Re: RC7 - Local links within web pages now misfire

Update: I did a mass convert of my indirectly displayed HTML docs from the Meta Refresh approach to the Research Files as Shortcuts approach, and everything works splendidly and more quickly than before. With the shortcuts working, the "Allow Limited Navigation in Web Pages" setting replic...

[LH4563] RC7 - Dragging doc of type "Research File as Shortcut" between projects creates a dead document

Hi - If we have a document that works as a Windows Shortcut and we drag it into another project's binder, the destination doc does not function as a shortcut. Under the hood, we see that the Windows shortcut file has been copied properly and the <FileExtension>html.lnk appears correctly in the desti...

[LH4604] RC7 - Local links within web pages now misfire

Hi - Scrivener RC7 has curtailed a very powerful and useful capability: clicked links in HTML docs no longer load in Scrivener's own panes. If they're external http:///, they display in the default browser; if they're local file:///, they now "open" uselessly in Windows File Explorer. Ther...

Re: Copy and Paste won't transfer more than one space.

Or I guess one could just use Ctrl+Shift+Space or Insert > Break > Non-Breaking Space.

(Replies first, thinks afterward.)

Re: Copy and Paste won't transfer more than one space.

Great find, Frank. This happens because Scrivener populates three different clipboards on copy: the HTML, the Rich Text, and the Plain Text. HTML as a document format displays multiple "spacebar" spaces as a single space, though it recognizes forced spaces when entered as the entity &n...
