UI : minor/high : bug when customising labels; crash

This contains two bugs because I am not sure if they are related. The crashing bug is high priority as it corrupted application preferences. The other bug is very minor, unless of course it is related to the crashing part. When I first found this bug, I was editing label colours after having added a...

1) Check. Though, as you were describing that, I had an idea: What if you could drag something from the Binder into the E.S.S. Corkboard (That sounds like a naval vessel in some slapstick irony show) and it would be added to the current session, in the position that it was dropped? 3) Wait, I though...

You know you already have a TOC by clicking on icon in the header view, right? This acts differently depending on whether you are in E.S. or not... No, I had not noticed that yet. Very swank, yet quite hidden. I wonder if a little downward pointing triangle like the one under icons that have option...

Not sure quite what you mean here. But maybe the corkboard and outliner should be completely disabled during an Edit Scrivenings session. I mean that, in an E.S. session having the Outliner available would be very handy. You could view the combined documents in two different fashions, as a list, an...

Currently, I have SG located in my user folder and it isn't causing problems there. I am still using it, mainly as a reference between versions for various discussions. I've also duplicated all of my SG projects so that I can open them in S1 with impunity. I would recommend doing that anyway. Always...

Huh, another problem just occurred to me: what happens if the user makes a multiple-selection in the binder? Especially one that spans _across_ multiple parents...? Actually, if you read the first post again, I did address that along with E.S. style invocations. Multiple Binder selections would cre...

Whether or not document containers show their contents is indeed a tough one. On one hand, they and groups are pretty much the same thing, so they should be treated the same way. On the other hand, if you come to expect items with the document icon to act a certain way, would be it confusing to have...

Well, it helps if you prostitute your art in the name of graphic design. ;) The natural media scene here is nearly saturated and it is very difficult to make a break in this city. As for why there are so many of us here on this board, I think somebody else said it accurately: Portland has a massive ...

Oh, how I love a good debate. Okay: 2) There is another option, (c) clicking on a document with no children in the Binder highlights that card in the Corkboard. This way, you retain that document centric quality. You are editing Step 12, press Cmd-2, and Step 12 is highlighted in the Corkboard with ...

Yeah, I don't know why they kept that feature so low-key. Like you said, it is not documented anywhere that I know of except in the release notes. I'm of the same camp: All things should have multiple, documented, access points. Some people cannot stand to memorise keyboard shortcuts, and some peopl...

Can you capture this problem in a screen shot? It sounds like what you are describing is a text rendering glitch that I have never seen outside of some Carbon applications, and all Classic apps. It would produce a block or two of text a lot like you described. Chunky and fuzzy at the same time. Refr...

Ahem. *blushes* Okay, I just woke up. I changed the original response to have the actual keyboard shortcuts. Silly, I was even pressing them the whole time testing the behaviour so I could describe it accurately. Ha.

I see. Just for future brainstorming 2.0: I wonder if something like this would work: You drag a document and it comes into contact with the header. An overlay pops-up over the contents of the view, essentially maximising the size of the header. It could be a dark gray semi-transparent thing that sa...

Is it too late to make it so that it does not automatically disappear when switching applications? We are all on the same page now, but in the future, bug reporting is often easier if you can reference the precise build number.
