Re: 24TH FEB - LEE'S UPDATE - BETA 1.7 IS HERE

Added collections (a big Mac 2.0 feature), this wasn't really planned. It just kind of happened - well sort of. This is a very powerful feature that enables you to create collections of documents to read and edit related text without affecting its place in the overall draft. You can label and track...

Re: Roadmap Question - Customizing Colours

How can I live without setting background to blue and foreground to white or yellow, just for that old-school WordPerfect for DOS feel? :)

Seriously, though, it would be a nifty tweak.

Re: wishlist and question

Wishlist An easy link on the format menu to format paragraphs with first line indented. problem: some pages seem to have the indent, others don't. I can't seem to predict which. I open them all with Project, New text. Check the tab setting widgets on the ruler line. On the pages where your paragrap...

Beta 1.6 working fine under Windows 7 SP1

Just a quick note to let you know that I upgraded my systems to Windows 7 SP1 earlier this evening and so far, everything appears to continue to be working in beta 1.6. I don't remember seeing anyone else mentioning the SP yet since it was just releaed to MSDN/TechNet on the 16th.

Sorry, garpu, that wasn't aimed directly at you. That "you" was the impersonal you.

Re: I'm spoiled!

As a side note, you can in fact pull the "rename .rtf to .doc" trick and launch the document in Word. The file extension rename is enough to fool Explorer, which uses the .doc association to launch Word. Word is smart enough to actually parse the format of the document its opening and hand...

Re: Mass font change

I'm sure the rest of you will think I'm a boring stick in the mud, but several years ago I settled on Courier New for just about everything I write for myself. (My technical writing for work uses whatever font is the default in the document template.) I still have fond memories of writing on a typew...

Re: Outliner Target/Progress indicator inaccurate

If this suggestion is taken, I would request that the specific color be configurable. For some projects, the target will be a ceiling; for others, a minimum. Seeing red all the time tends to indicate an error, which would be the case if it's a ceiling but not so much if it's a minimum.

Re: 8th DEC - LEE'S UPDATE

Considering Microsoft is still committed to providing support for XP (with SP3) until 2014, I'd say that gives XP users a decent reason to expect at least some level of support from their favorite applications. At any rate, it's L&L's call to make on whether they want to address support for the ...

Re: Bugs creating new project

Closing the entire program when you close the last open file/project violates the paradigm of the typical well-behaved Windows program. If I'm working on a project and want to start something new, it's very common to close the existing one, then select File | New.

Re: 12th DEC - LEE'S UPDATE

It seems like there's a bit of a pile-on in progress towards a user who does understand what betas are, did in fact read the bug list, had particular expectations about certain behaviors being fixed, and is now expressing confusion. There's a lot of information to digest on these forums, and not eve...

Re: Project status/save/corkboard

Only if you took an actual snapshot at the time. I like the value that Scriv provides with this, but it's been a difficult road adjusting to it, and I for one would feel more comfortable with a future version of Scriv offering me a bit more control over the autosave behavior.

Re: Options dialog

Perhaps if the Options dialog were a dockable palette (both on the main screen and in full screen mode) that would make it behave more like Windows users expect AND keep it useful for the folks who want it up so they can tweak?

That's a fantastic amount of work. I am especially enamoured of the auto-updated function.

Re: Potential bug when trying to enter text

This sounds a lot like the well-known lag bug which affected mostly the older beta versions of the software (although a few folks running the latest version seem to be having some issues as well). Two quick, easy things to check: 1) Make sure you're running Scrivener 1.3 beta. The absolute easiest w...
