Let me start by saying I LOVE this application. It has helped me organize, write, and publish my first book! So HUGE round of applause for the developer(s)! (unsupported clap emojis stripped out ;-( )

The feature request is self-explanatory. It would be helpful that URL shortcuts sported the favicons of their websites, rather than a generic link icon. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the kind words! And congratulations on finishing your book!

The main problem with supporting favicon in URL shortcuts (I assume you mean in the Bookmarks area) is that it would require either Scrivener downloading the icons to show them every time the Bookmarks are shown, or saving all of those icons into the project itself, which seems to me to add a l little more internal clutter than the icons are worth. I'll ponder on it, though.

All the best,
