Re: Suggestion: A preference setting for startup behavior

Just a thought, but if you Quit Scapple leaving the projects you want to work on open, then (if you've set the option in OS) when you open Scapple again they all appear automatically with no start-up. I'm in the same position, I have four or five maps that I use almost daily and having them open li...

Suggestion: A preference setting for startup behavior

Wondering if Scapple could get the kind of control over startup behavior that Scrivener offers. I tend to open the same few ever-growing Scapple files, so I don't have much use for the fresh new file with which the program always opens. I'd like to set the behavior to "do nothing." Then I ...

Re: A more precise "lock group view"?

I think that is going a little far, sorry. For every person who found that useful there would be another who found it confusing or annoying. :) What, you aren't complying immediately with my every passing wish? I don't know what to say! Wait, yes I do: Thanks for considering. Hope you're having a g...

A more precise "lock group view"?

I really like the new "lock group view mode" capability (as I use outline view a lot). What I was wondering is if it could be made a little more fine grained -- ie, I'd like to specify (a) open this folder in outline mode always AND (b) in that outline mode, sort the items according to mod...

Weird behavior when importing docx with comments

Recently imported a docx document to a Scrivener (2.3, 19120) project. Text is fine but comments are embedded in the main document rather than appearing in comments mode. And around the comment text is all this Greek. Wondering if this is a bug or a problem in my settings. David PS Here is a screen ...

One-touch reset for search

This is quite minor, but as this is a list for wishes I'll go ahead... When I'm searching around in a complicated project I find it a bit cumbersome to return to the full view of all files. I have to return to the Find window and delete what is there to get the full Binder list. It would be great to...

Re: Import rtf, doc, docx files as aliases

You can create an alias of the text document outside of Scrivener via Finder and then import the alias; that works all right and is a bit simpler than creating the PDF. It also works as a real alias, then, so if you update the original document you'll see the change reflected when you view it in Sc...

Re: Import rtf, doc, docx files as aliases

If uneditable is fine, and you just need the text as a reference, convert the document to PDF and import it as an alias. Well, for me there's another attraction to alias import. It's not just that it keeps the project small. It's also that it prevents confusing duplication, as in "is this the ...

Import rtf, doc, docx files as aliases

Like the "Import Research Files As Aliases" feature but for some reason it doesn't work with rtf, doc and docx files. This seems odd -- a research file can be sent or downloaded or created in any format, after all. My wish would be for completely unlimited aliasing here -- no file types gr...

Re: "Copy as HTML" no longer works in 2.5?

Just to let you know that I think I've fixed this for 2.1.1 (thanks to David for sending a sample project). I hope to post a beta before I go away at the end of the week. Thanks, Keith Thanks for the quick work, Keith. It does seem to be fixed. I've been using Copy as HTML normally in the new beta,...

Re: "Copy as HTML" no longer works in 2.5?

That's one sentence that gets multiplied five times.Imagine the madness I feel when confronted with an entire page of this stuff. I find I really can't use Scrivener 2.1 for my blog's HTML code because of it. Yep, that's the problem. Do you have MacJournal? While I wait for Keith et al. to enlighte...

"Copy as HTML" no longer works in 2.5?

I often use the "Copy Special .." Basic using <p> and <span> option for blogging.

This morning I find that this action yields a total mess -- coding in the wrong place, paragraphs repeated five times.

Wondering if some changes to create 2.5 have messed with this feature?

Re: Questions About 'Research Files as Aliases"

Amazed I didn't think of that. Thanks for the explanation about aliases, too. I'm going to experiment with this, then.

Cheers,
