Re: Date System using negative Numbers

Thanks for the answer and explanation, Ioa. I think rdale's idea works well enough: each set of dates (positive and negative) can be sorted to give a timeline, even if there is a slight bump in the ascending–descending road. The OP could also create a suitable key to delineate the dates and then sor...

Re: Images DPI

Bridey: I don't think Keith will need to do that, he should still use the same rule that anything > 600 CSS px should get a width=100%. The issue is only for the calculation for images that are < 600 width (remember the original Kindle 1 was 600 x 800 portrait resolution, and that is the resizing y...

Re: Date System using negative Numbers

Thanks for that. Will try when back at a Mac. Just a puzzle for me, though it would also be useful for the OP if it did work.

Re: Date System using negative Numbers

Not at a Mac to be able to test this, but is it possible to use a custom date field that includes the era / extended year?

Re: Page numbering different for PDF and DOCX

It's perfectly fine if that's the case. A lot of bug reports start out as genuine questions, and if we find it confusing or think people will have a hard time finding it when searching for the problem they are facing, we'll move the thread or mirror it. Thanks. I have a similar thread that is in th...

Re: Date System using negative Numbers

Now that I'm less distracted, I just noticed that your sorted dates are in descending order if you ignore the postive/negative symbols. The order it should be (to reflect how our own BC/AD dates work) would be as I originally listed them. Your sort order has the largest positive date (year 300) as ...

Re: Date System using negative Numbers

Bridey: Did you use a Text metadata field, or a Date metadata field? I assume it's not a Checkbox metadata field, and I don't recall any other types... That may be the key to how people are getting different results. Hi. I called the field ‘date’, but used a ‘text’ type. Types are: text, checkbox, ...

Re: Date System using negative Numbers

How odd. I don't have my Mac with me today, so I can't test this... Scrivener sorts this information as a custom metadata text field the same as my example? Or are you using some other metadata type? Because the negative years should sort in the opposite order, as SilverDragon claims they do. Ah, I...

No, I was wrong in how alpha sorting treats negative numbers. Please disregard my post.


Okay, but in my test, the numbers come out as you list them...

I *assume* the different forum: tech support / bug hunt.

Never know if an issue originally in tech support needs to be highlighted in the bug forum if it is subsequently identified as a bug.
