Hi --

I know those Scrivener Links as URLs, introduced in this beta, are going to be a great boon in time. At the moment, though, merely pasting one into the ScratchPad abruptly ends the session.

Hi Jerome, can you please explain shortly the steps that lead to the crash. Do you use the context menu, the Menu Bar or some shortcut? Thanks!

Hi Tiho

With a binder item selected, if we click Copy Special -> Copy Docs as Scrivener Links and paste the result into the Scratch Pad, we'll crash in a few seconds. No need even to click on the link. Same result if we drag a ScrivLink from an editor into the Scratch Pad.

Many thanks, Jerome! I managed to reproduce it and the bug will be fixed with the next release. FYI it is caused by the tooltip popup. For now if you avoid moving the mouse over the Scrivener Links you can avoid the crash.
