Re: x-callback-URL

Hi - This appears to be an an iOS-only specification, and for that reason alone it may be difficult to justify for inclusion. Perhaps you could describe how you would put the capability to use? Someone might then be able to suggest an interoperable approach to the same objective.

Re: I tried to like it. I really did.

This is an old design bugbear, the lack of granularity in the Inspector, as we each may prefer different elements in our primary view. Scriv 2.9.X has actually improved in this area as it can now partition, collapse, resize and independently scroll some of the Inspector panes, particularly those in ...

[LH3056] On multi-select, Doc Bookmarks inspector points to undetermined doc, accepts dragged items

Any bookmarks we add in this state belong to no particular doc, and will not be retained.

[Suggestion] A few more color choices

Much appreciation for all of Scrivener's custom color capabilities, some effected via Options, others via the Windows Theme. They enable users to combat eye strain, and create an appealing research and writing environment. This is a request for a bit more of the same: user choice in colors that at p...

[Suggestion] Dragging a link from a web viewer pane into Document Bookmarks?

Greetings We can drag links from web pages viewed in Scrivener's panes, and drop them into Scrivener documents. But we can't drop them into Document Bookmarks, which would also seem a logical destination as we identify useful reference material. When we view the same pages in popular web browsers, w...

"Export Files" saves to a truncated filename that does not match the one shown in its screen prompt

This bug emerges when exporting a doc whose name contains a period. If we select doc "A. A. Milne" for export, we'll get a prompt like this: MilneExport.png But when we actually click Export , the file created will be truncated at the first period: A.rtf , If A.rtf already exists, it'll be...

[LH3017] "View Page Source" on a web doc triggers loss of Zoom

Greetings An obscure bug in Beta 2.9.0.4's extremely successful integration with the Qt web engine: After we've selected View Page Source on a web document, the active Zoom value will no longer be applied to subsequent web documents in that pane. The Zoom we selected, say 125%, remains checked, and ...

Re: Imported document, now text is offset to one side.

Pretty sure the original page achieved its formatting by tables, and the tables have been imported into Scrivener. A table in Scriv 1.9.7 can have Border set to 0px and Cell Background set to None, leaving the user with little evidence of its existence, just margins and barriers he can't see or adju...

Re: [LH2754] Size of toolbar icons -- shading mismatch

The toolbar icons are especially difficult to perceive under a low-contrast Windows theme. I'm comfortable with the icons redesigned in Windows 10 style, but the shading cues in the Main and Formatting toolbars are mismatched. For example, compare the Binder Expand/Collapse icons, when available and...

Re: Binder selection context menu needs an "Open in Current Editor"

Thanks Ioa..the Alt-click for the opposite pane is indeed implemented in the beta. It'll be a big help. I'd like that behavior when we Alt-click on a Scrivener link as well. It does make sense to hide or disable an "Open in Current Editor" command when it's redundant. BTW, noticing that Sc...

Binder selection context menu needs an "Open in Current Editor"

Greetings Our binder context menu options currently enable us to open the selected document in Other Editor, in Quick Reference, and in Copyholder. But I think Scrivener also needs an Open in Current Editor option for those who have selected Other Editor or None under Binder Selection Affects. . Als...

Re: [LH2983] Swap Editors now forces a layout change

Noticing as well that when we run View > Layout > Swap Editors the editors are reversed for Navigate > Binder Selection Affects. I have this set to Right Editor, and after the swap it's the Left editor that responds.

[LH2990] Inspector shows first child, rather than selected doc, in Group view

When we view a document that is a parent, and use the Group Mode control to toggle between the single document view and any group view, the Inspector will toggle between the selected doc and its first child.

Suggestion: Default doc in place of "No Bookmark Selected"

The "No Bookmark Selected" display pane is an inefficient use of its space. Since Scrivener has the preview mechanism already in place, I'd like the pane to display a default document of the user's choice when no bookmark is selected. This would become a ready spot for free-form links, rem...

[LH2983] Swap Editors now forces a layout change

The behavior of View > Layout > Swap Editors has been modified in the beta to swap the editors' positions rather than the documents they display, The command has always been found on the Layout menu, so the new behavior is more logical in a narrow sense. But I'd argue not as useful. We still need a ...
