Re: Scratchpad [Beta 34]

Yep, thanks for this. Exactly my experience, but I could not reproduce it reliably enough to report.

Re: Extensions

Some encouragement though: a Scrivener project is a self-documenting database. User scripts can easily read Scrivener files and create alternate forms of output without requiring a plug-in architecture. If someone's workflow would benefit from automation, it hardly matters whether their scripts are ...

Re: Windows Beta - copy/paste problem

Yes, this is a very real bug, a freezecrash of Scrivener most often triggered when html email is pasted into the editor window, because email clients will often strip images from emails to disable tracking. An image tag stripped to the form <img width="32"> continues to crash Beta 30, as i...

Re: Print Preview window too narrow for its toolbar

Just click on file then hit on print button.... Quoted reply was a superficially plausible, fake linkspam response to my three year old inquiry. Hope it will be removed forthwith. For what it's worth, I was losing a portion of the horizontal toolbar, not of the page being previewed. I addressed thi...

[LH4210] B30 Regression on dragging / rearranging external bookmarks

Hi -- The beta bug that made it impossible to drag bookmarked items between Inspectors, or rearrange them within an inspector, has returned, but only for External bookmarks. Internal ones drag and rearrange correctly. 1. The drag and drop depicted here will not be successful. bookmarkdrag2.png Prior...

[LH4222] Print Preview: Same selection, different docs (Beta 29)

Hi - If we select several documents in the Binder, move our focus to the Editor, and select Print Preview, Corkboard View previews a different set of documents from Outline View. (Print Preview is disabled when viewing Scrivenings, no problem there. ) 1. Four documents selected, Corkboard View, Prin...

[LH4208] Simple HTML paste that locks Beta 28

Hi -- This is the same freeze on a null image that we reported on Scriv 1.9.7.0. It bit me again today on the beta. Pasted in an email fragment from Thunderbird where the image was stripped but the <img> tag remained. It caused a session lock, requiring Task Manager to exit. Replicate the bug by sav...

Re: I cannot import any web pages

For clarification, do I understand that "we won't see a robust direct web page import in Scrivener 3" is an impression based on your testing of the beta? Actually, I regret the point. It's one I've made on the forum with regard to pasting into a Scrivener doc from a web page source. But i...

Re: I cannot import any web pages

Just to clarify, do you mean Edge as generally available in all Windows 10 builds, or the specific new Edge-built-on-Chromium which is in open beta but has not yet been generally released, and is not yet slated to replace the normal edge until some future Windows 10 feature update? Thanks, Devin. T...

Re: I cannot import any web pages

It has to do, I think, with how the formatting of Web pages has advanced and the code underlying Scrivener has ... well, not. The good news is that this should be working in the new v. 3 when it comes out. It may already be working in the beta version, if you want to try that....the only other alte...

Re: Search by UUID

Couple of belated thoughts. Searching for UUID in Notepad++ would be pointless for users who are seeking the minute-to-minute capability rather than the occasional retrieved value. Anyway, I already have the UUID; I’m looking for the easiest way to deploy it to open the document. It’s true that as a...

Re: [LH1668] Beta 28 - Which pane does the Inspector depict?

Super, thanks Ioa. BTW, this is an example of a bug disclosed by scripting. Mine relies on an entry in Bookmarks to determine whether a scripted nav operation has found its target. Whereas human operators quietly accommodate themselves to road conditions; they'll click around the panes if they need ...

Hi - The new draft manual describes the Inspector's target as follows: 4.1.5 The Inspector...Its purpose is to display all metadata and auxiliary information associated with the document shown in the active editor pane, or if the editor is showing a group view, the selection within that pane. But in...

Re: Search by UUID

Folks, there was a time not that long ago when Scrivener took great pains to obscure the identifiers that connected binder docs and the file system. I’ve always respected that design choice in the forum, while circumventing it privately in my AutoHotkey script. Scrivener isn’t for data geeks; it’s a...
