Hey Keith,

Here's a behavior that had a double impact ... a rearranged binder hierarchy and an inability to quit. Description below.

Best regards,

Phil

Description of the first problem:

I was working in 2.0 (6076) in an effort to change the structure of a project (see the Forum Thread http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9629).

I had just built a Collection of items that resulted from a search for items checked both as A) "To be compiled" and B) matching a search string in a custom meta-category I had just created. I wanted to see this Collection in the Binder, and so I selected the items in the Collection and hit Cmd-Opt-R. To my surprise, when I now looked in the Binder, all of those items had not only been selected, they had been moved to a bottom position in the Draft folder (Ouch! Several hundred items now moved out of their long-held locations in the Binder hierarchy). Since there was no means I could find to "undo" this mass movement of files and folders, I decided to close the project and re-open the most recent back-up. So I closed the project.

The second problem:

After the project closed (successfully), I decided to quit Scrivener (I thought it might help to start over from a fresh launch). But Scrivener wouldn't quit. The console.log reported the messages below, adding lines each time I tried to quit from the menu or by cmd-q. I ended up force-quitting. No crash report was generated. Puzzling.
