Hi Folks,

Well it's that time again. Time to come out from the coding-womb, shield my eyes, squint in the sunlight and actually engage with other humans - what can I say - it's on my to-do list, "Book therapist!"

Seriously, I'm delighted to announce the 'birth' of Scrivener for Windows 1.7.0.1 BETA - it's packed with new features and lots of bug fixes. I know I say this often, but I'm really proud of this one. We've resisted the temptation to just keep adding features and have taken the opportunity to fix some long standing bugs and issues that were never going to be easily fixed without taking considerable extra time. We also managed to squeeze some extra horsepower and performance and really got the 'old-girl' humming now. I'll let the aficionados be the judge of whether our efforts these past months have been well invested - feel free to let us know what you think in general.

Also, due to the refactoring of much of the code base to provision for our future mobile strategy, we decided to be cautious and release this as a beta first before releasing it as a free update. Personally I have found, in my own daily writing, that this new Scrivener for Windows is superior to anything we've released before, but you might prove otherwise - hence the beta litmus test. I'm especially enjoying the new template feature - if only my laundry and washing up could get done once and stay done like templates!

Finally, you might notice the installer size has jumped considerably to ~77MB, fear not this is only a temporary inconvenience and we anticipate that updated versions, post 1.7.x, will shrink back to ~50MB. We thought it better to address the long standing issue of the web import functionality - so we are stuck with two code frameworks currently until we upgrade at some point.

What follows are the release notes and download link for the Scrivener for 1.7.0.1 Beta. Expiry for the beta is the 1st March 2014, at which point we'll either have released another beta or an official update.



Changes for 1.7.0.1

Refinements and Changes

Formatting
- You can now create and apply formatting presets to document text via the Format > Formatting menu or from the format bar.
- Ranges of text can now be marked with Preserve Formatting to prevent their formatting being overwritten during compile when the rest of the text is standardised.
- Text can now be converted to small caps appearance via Format > Convert.

Compile
- You can select a folder or document from anywhere outside the Draft folder to include as front matter in the compile contents.
- Compiled ebooks include only one copy of each unique image in the epub or mobi package, reducing file size.
- New project properties in the Meta-Data Settings allow you to use placeholder tags throughout the project and compile settings to be replaced with the project title and author name during compile. <$projecttitle> and <$fullname> are used by default for title and author meta-data when compiling to ebook formats.

Collections
- Standard collections now have a "Remove from Collection" button in the header, which will remove the selected documents from the collection without impacting their placement in the binder. The Delete key alone will do the same.
- "Move to Trash" (Shift-Delete) now acts consistently in the binder and collections, always moving the selected item to the project trash rather than simply removing it from the collection (use the new Remove from Collection button or Delete alone to cut the item from the collection without altering it in the binder). In standard collections, Move to Trash will also remove the item from the collection. In search collections, Move to Trash will move the item but may leave it in the search results, depending on the search criteria.
- Updated the "Save Search..." text from the search menu to more explicitly state "Save Search as Collection..."

Scrivener Links
- Scrivener Link > New Link... (Ctrl+G, Ctrl+D) opens a dialog to easily create Scrivener links to new or existing documents.
- Holding the Alt key while dragging and dropping items from the binder to document text or notes inserts a Scrivener link. Dragging and dropping images or text documents without the modifier key will insert the image or text.
- New options in Edit > Copy Special let you copy a selection of binder documents as a list of Scrivener links or as a Table of Contents.

PDF Viewer
- PDF import and display has been completely re-written and offers many new options including text extraction via the context menu, finer zoom control and rendering crispness and clarity, single-page view, find, rotation, print support, link support, password protected PDF support, keyboard and outline navigation support. Right click on a PDF to see all available options. This new code is now cross platform, so our Linux users will finally be able to preview PDF within Scrivener.

Webpage Import
- Webpage import has also been overhauled to use the open standard MHT format, better preserving the complete webpage in a single file. MHT files can be opened externally or converted on import to PDF for viewing in Scrivener.

Custom Icons in Binder
- You can now assign documents a custom icon through the Documents > Change Icon menu (also available in the binder, outliner, and corkboard context menus). Hold the Alt key while right-clicking the item to go directly to the icon submenu.

Templates
- Project > Set Selection as Templates Folder lets you use subdocuments of the selected binder item as templates for new documents via Project > New from Template. The top item in the folder is assigned a shortcut for quick access.

Full Screen Backdrop
- View > Full Screen Backdrop lets you select an image from the project or hard drive to use as a project-specific backdrop in Full Screen mode.

Other
- Scrivener now supports multiple project notes, which can be viewed in the inspector or opened in a floating window from Project > Project Notes...
- The Tools menu now offers the option to Save and Rebuild Search Indexes to restore an out-of-date index and improve search results.
- In addition to sorting documents in the binder, you can now sort selected paragraphs within a document in ascending or descending alphabetical order.
- Resetting the default Options no longer clears custom substitutions.
- Updated the Scratch Pad "Send File to Scrivener" menu to use the Scrivener project icon beside the project titles.
- When right-clicking on an inserted image, the context menu now offers "Save as Picture..." to save a copy of the image outside the project.
- Inserted images can be resized by clicking and dragging the lower right corner (press Shift before clicking to constrain ratio).
- You can now drag a synopsis image to the editor to copy it into a document's text.
- The context menu in the editor has been reordered slightly and now includes options to insert an image or to create and insert a screen capture. Right-clicking on Scrivener Links adds a menu option to open in the current or other editor.
- Cleaned up the Documents > Move menu to make it easier to navigate.
- Adjusted some of the icons in title bars and throughout the interface that did not appear crisp.
- The highlight and text colour format bar buttons now use a popover style for colour selection; right-click or click and hold the button to bring up the colour options.
- The colour selection dialog now shows the current colour when applicable.
- Renamed the "Manage Layouts" menu item and dialog to "Layout Manager" for better consistency with the Windows design.
- Updated the instructions for importing files into the name generator.
- Updated a few cases of the warning that displays when opening a project that may already be open to provide more specific information.
- The border and gradient of the label colour in the binder uses softer shading.
- The tooltip for the options button in the corkboard footer now uses "Corkboard Options" rather than "Layout Options".
- More customisable keyboard shortcuts have been added, including shortcuts for the outline Expand All, Collapse All, and Collapse to Current Level commands, for the alternate editor's history, and for switching to the previous or next collection in the binder.
- The Insert key now toggles overwrite mode in the editor and in document and project notes.
- Pressing the RightArrow or LeftArrow key now moves the insertion point to the beginning or end of the text selection within the editor.
- Saved layouts are now alphabetised (ignoring case) in the Layout Manager and the All Layouts menu.
- Added "Back Up Now" and "Project Notes" to the available options for the main toolbar icons and added "Copy" to the format bar options.
- Closing the project does not visibly clear the editor display, which could appear in the closing sequence as though text had gone missing.
- The installer and uninstaller now include the Scrivener version number for easy identification.
- Various interface elements have been slightly resized to optimise space.
- "Choose Texture" has been removed from Appearance options where unavailable.
- The version information in the About dialog can be selected and copied for easier inclusion with feedback.
- OPML and mindmap files are now included in the standard File > Import > Files... command, with preferences set in the Import/Export Options, rather than having a separate menu item.
- You can import external files from the project and document references by dragging and dropping from the inspector to the binder.
- Added an option to automatically launch Scrivener at the end of the installer.
- Hovering over items in the format bar spacing menu displays the associated indentation settings.

Bugs Fixed

Stability
- Improved the Documents > Merge process to avoid a possible crash when selected items were included in a collection or when merging a Scrivenings session.
- Adjusted deactivation to work around an eSellerate crash when attempting to deactivate Scrivener while offline.
- Fixed a bug when converting inline notation to inspector notes that could freeze Scrivener if anchor text could not be found (e.g when all text in a table was set as an annotation).

Usability
- Fixed a bug in Export > Comments & Annotations when exporting "Selected documents only" that listed comments according to their document's internal ID rather than their binder order.
- Fixed a bug causing different images with the same name to be replaced with the same image during compile.
- Fixed a bug causing typing lag in the editor when working with the Project Targets window open.
- Fixed a bug where dragging and dropping text between the split editors when the same document was open in each could delete the dragged text if it was dropped in the same location it began.
- Fixed a bug where cutting or copying a text selection that abutted an image would then paste a copy of the image rather than the selected text.
- Fixed a bug that converted embedded images to gibberish text when compiling to plain-text or exporting to OPML or MindMap formats; the image is now cleanly removed.
- Fixed a bug that prompted with a warning message when exporting an image or PDF file with the same name as an existing file in another format at the save location, even though saving would not overwrite the existing file.
- Fixed a bug that could cause significant lag when working in a document with an image synopsis.
- Fixed a bug where deleting a parent of a keyword used in a document did not require confirmation, thus removing the child keyword without warning.
- Fixed a bug causing typing lag when working with the Project Targets open.
- Fixed a bug in DOCX compile that always exported footnotes as footnotes, regardless of the option selected.
- Fixed a bug in RTF, DOC and DOCX export that numbered subitems incorrectly when compiling hierarchical lists.
- Fixed a bug that could cause a multiple selection accidentally dragged and dropped back onto itself to scramble the order of the documents rather than simply cancelling the action.
- Updated file caching to preserve a document's undo history until the project is closed, so that changes can be reverted after switching documents.
- Fixed a bug allowing tables to be created or copied into inspector comments and footnotes, as compiling these could cause corrupt documents.
- Fixed a bug in ebook compile that created invalid IDs for hyperlinks within the text.
- Adjusted ebook compile to use image names in the compiled package rather than random numbers.
- Fixed a bug preventing multiple documents with the same title from exporting correctly.
- Fixed a bug giving an "Access denied" error when exporting an empty document.
- Ensured the UserProjectData metadata is preserved when editing a Mac project on Windows (affecting integration with third-party programs like Aeon Timeline).
- Fixed a bug causing arbitrary collections to revert to their previous order on reopening the project if they had been rearranged using the Move Up/Down menu commands or keyboard shortcuts. This bug also affected compiling collections, causing the documents to be listed in the original order.
- Fixed a bug where non-text files could be brought into the Draft folder if their parent text item was dragged into the Draft.
- Fixed a bug where dragging and dropping an external link from document or project references to Windows Explorer would move the original file and break the link.
- Fixed a bug where dragging an externally referenced image from the inspector to the text editor inserted the image correctly but deleted the reference.
- Tweaked code for saving the search indexes, hopefully fixing a bug where text could go missing from the index, causing inaccurate search results. To rebuild the complete index, hold the Alt key when selecting the File menu and choose Save and Rebuild Search Indexes.
- Fixed a bug where page padding settings were not ignored when compiling to Final Draft.
- Enabled auto-corrections, including smart quotes, in inspector comments and footnotes.
- Fixed a bug where title prefixes and suffixes were ignored when generating the table of contents for ebooks.
- Fixed a compile bug causing the word count tokens to only count per section in ebook formats.
- Fixed a bug where pasting an image into a document containing an image with the same name altered the original image.
- Fixed a bug where running a new search while viewing a saved search collection changed the collection rather than updating the Search Results.
- Fixed a bug where pasting an image into a document containing an image with the same name altered the original image.
- Fixed a bug where running a new search while viewing a saved search collection changed the collection rather than updating the Search Results.

UI
- Corrected minor typos and font size problems in menus and dialogs for English and several translations.
- Fixed a bug causing fonts with no "regular" variant (such as Bookman Old Style) to revert to another variant such as "Bold" rather than the expected "Light".
- Fixed a bug causing text cut and pasted following an inserted image to lose its formatting and paste as MS Shell Dlg 2. This may correct the reversion to MS Shell Dlg 2 in other scenarios as well.
- Fixed a bug causing resized images to revert to their original size when dragged and dropped or cut and pasted in a document.
- Fixed a bug where clicking "Cancel" in the Print dialog from compile closed the compile dialog as well.
- Fixed the formatting in compiled placeholder tags to hyphenate compound numbers (e.g. "twenty-two").
- Fixed bugs that exported "Untitled" documents with an empty title in OPML outlines and with no title in compiled documents (when including the "Title" element).
- Removed several extraneous items from the toolbar options which did not have unique icons. (All functions are still available via the menus and keyboard shortcuts.)
- Disabled the screen capture option in Scratch Pad when no note is selected to receive the image.
- Refined the numbering for new untitled Scratch Pad notes.
- Single quotes are now escaped in OPML export.
- Browsing for files to import to the Name Generator defaults now to the user Documents and remembers the last location selected in the session.
- The Import and Export OPML and Mindmap options remember their last-used settings.
- Fixed a bug preventing the Scratch Pad keyboard shortcut from working after all projects were closed and only the New Project window remained open.
- Fixed a bug where adjusting paragraph formatting for a triple-clicked paragraph also applied the formatting to the following paragraph.
- Fixed a bug where triple-clicking a paragraph and adjusting its formatting then applied that formatting to a new paragraph inserted by pressing Enter at the beginning of the following paragraph.
- Fixed a bug calculating the width of the script elements menu, which caused the menu to be cut off when working in a narrow editor.
- Fixed a bug where the auto-title feature for untitled documents could replace a user's custom title if the auto-save ran while the title was being edited.
- Fixed a delay in generating titles when using Document Split, causing the automatic title to sometimes overwrite a user's custom title.
- Fixed an update delay when editing a document title or synopsis that could cause newly entered text to be overwritten.
- Fixed a bug in the outliner causing the Total Word Count column to display a running total for a multiple selection instead of the correct total word count for each selected item.
- Corrected the help text for importing files to the Name Generator.
- Clarified the error message to indicate the invalid character when attempting to export a document with a double quote in the filename.
- Fixed a bug that could replace your custom title immediately after splitting a document with the default title.
- Fixed a bug where pressing Enter at the beginning or middle of a line of text in script mode would select all the following text on the line and move the insertion point after creating the new line. Pressing Enter repeatedly in this case now inserts multiple new lines.
- Adjusted the line wrapping in the licence text for the update installer to avoid horizontal scrolling.
- Fixed a bug in Export > Comments and Annotations that incorrectly separated the notations rather than ordering them according to their occurrence in the document.
- Fixed a bug preventing dragging and dropping items above the Draft folder if it was at the top of the binder or below the Trash if it was at the bottom.
- Fixed a bug in Full Screen causing some keyboard shortcuts such as Paste and Undo to affect the main text even when the focus was in the project or document notes.
- Adjusted the behaviour when closing a project to prevent the editor display blanking.
- Fixed a bug where changing the group view mode in one editor split affected the second split; view modes are now properly persistent per editor.
- Fixed a bug with Copy Ruler and Paste Ruler that excluded the before and after paragraph spacing from the copied formatting.
- Fixed a bug preventing before- and after-paragraph spacing from applying correctly when selected from the format bar drop-down menu.
- Fixed a display bug causing plain-text files to initially appear blank when imported via File > Import.
- Fixed a bug when typing CJK glyphs using the Microsoft IME that caused the input text to be selected using the default text colour without contrasting the text, rendering the characters illegible in some cases. The IME now underlines rather than selecting the characters.
- Fixed a bug that caused many landscape-oriented PDFs to import as portrait, cutting off the right edge of the document.
- Fixed several bugs with placeholder tag replacements, including proper rounding for word and character count tags when used in the header or footer and replacing the Current Selection tag with the title of the selected group rather than the title of the Draft folder.
- Fixed a bug where the Save As dialog did not show other XML files in the directory when saving script settings.
- Fixed a bug preventing invisible characters from displaying in a custom colour.
- Fixed a bug in PDF display where highlights were drawn incorrectly, obscuring the text.
- Fixed a bug where items loaded in the editor from a collection would revert to binder order when closing the collection.
- Corrected the behaviour of the Layout Manager to ensure it floats and does not get lost behind other windows.
- Fixed a bug where project keywords could not be rearranged in the floating window after exiting Full Screen.
- Fixed the project keyword panel behaviour to stay open when switching into and out of Full Screen. The project keywords now use the same shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+O) in the regular window and in Full Screen.
- Fixed a bug that could create duplicate entries in the spacing drop-down menu. (Note that different indentation settings for the paragraph settings will create separate menu entries, even though the spacing is identical.)
- Fixed a bug affecting Typewriter Scrolling in Scrivenings mode that caused the text to scroll when moving the insertion point rather than only when typing.
- Fixed a bug where dragging and dropping multiple items within a collection could drop the items in the wrong order.
- Fixed import behaviour for OPML and Mindmap files to follow the standard new item rules for binder placement, and added drag and drop import for these file types.
- Fixed several bugs with placeholder tag replacements, including proper rounding for word and character count tags when used in the header or footer and replacing the <$compilegroup> tag with the title of the selected group rather than the title of the Draft folder.
- Fixed a compatibility bug where the smart quote style would not appear properly when opened on the Mac.
- Fixed a bug that could create duplicate entries in the spacing drop-down menu. (Note that identical line and paragraph spacing with different indentation will create separate entries; hover over the entry to view the complete settings.)
- Fixed a bug that could cause fonts to change when working cross-platform with Windows and Mac.
- Fixed a bug causing new blank projects to open maxmised on certain screen resolutions.
- Adjusted smart quote behaviour to allow for multiple styles within the same project; use Format > Convert > Quotes to Smart Quotes in the editor to update text to the current style set in Options: Corrections.
- Fixed a bug where selecting items in a collection and choosing Move To could drop them in the binder out of order.

Hi all,

Just to add to what Lee already said about the new beta, we aren't finished with the fixes and features yet, so do expect that you may run into a few glitches here and there. (Though nothing catastrophic, we hope!) Let us know what you find and please as always be as specific as possible with reproduction steps and the version of Windows you're using--the sooner we're able to reproduce the bug, the sooner we can get it fixed. Please start a new thread in the beta forum for each issue you want to report, or if there is already a thread for that issue on 1.7, of course just add to that.

Thank you all for your support and feedback!

Can the beta be uninstalled? If we have too many problems with it can we roll back to the previous version? If so, how, and will our registration information be lost in the process?

Just curious, but I've already had one crash (sorry, didn't capture the error message... :oops: )

Thank you for such a tremendous product.

In a project from a previous version I have some weblinks in my research folder. The wikipedia links work fine but some others let Scrivener crash, which most often means disapear without an error message! I have Win8.1-64 engl..

Hi guys,
Installed the Beta in a separate folder (Scrivener-Beta)
Went to open my novel project, got this error. (see screengrab)
After about 30 seconds my novel project did open.
It seemed the same, but can't be sure.
should I go back to working in my non-beta Scrivener?

PS wanted to add that the particular project in question is hefty -- 1.3 GB. (I opened a short story project with no issues)
However, the issue continues with the big project even though I restarted the computer

"add selection as title": Since this week I notice that the short-cut key F2 does not work anymore; only right-klick menu works. Other shortcut key are working fine. Has this anything to do with new release?

Dear Selma,

I have the new beta, too and the shortcut works fine for me. I have used F2 already several times with the new beta without problems.

Have you checked under Tools > Options > Keybord if "F2" is still set as shortcut for "Set selection as title"? If it isn´t set there, you can reset it.

The message indicates there's some invalid XML in the project notes index file. This isn't likely to be especially dangerous to the project, as this is just an index file of your project notes (which prior to the beta only included the one General project note); the note text itself is a separate RTF file.

If you're still getting that error, could you navigate into the project's folder down to Files/Project Notes and copy out the "index.xml" file there? (If you're not getting it any longer, the XML file has probably already been overwritten, so you'd need to copy the file from an older backup.) Taking a look at that directly should help pinpoint the problem and get it fixed.

F2 is still the default shortcut for the "Set Selected Text as Title" command. You can try resetting the shortcuts to the defaults by going to Tools > Options, selecting Keyboard, then choosing "Scrivener" from the "Import" button menu. If that doesn't solve it, it's likely the F2 key has been reassigned on your system, so I'd check for other global software you may have installed or changes in the operating system preferences.

Yes, I'm still getting the same error.

in the Files/Project Notes folder the file (dated 10/29/13) reads:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <ProjectNotes Version="1.0">
- <Note ID="10">
<Title>General</Title>
</Note>
</ProjectNotes>



there seem to be 2 other index.xml files in 2 other folders (see screengrab)
in the Snapshots/27.snapshots that file reads:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <Snapshots Version="1.0">
- <Snapshot>
<Date>2011-10-14 10:58:23 +0000</Date>

in the Snapshots/95.snapshots that file reads:

I immediately rushed to customize my Format Toolbar to include Small Caps, because I use them on every document (poem titles). But: not there. I hope that will come in the final release.

There won't be a format bar button for this, but you can set up your own shortcut for it in the Keyboard section of Tools > Options or use the accelerator keys Alt+R,C,S Enter.

_______________________________
MORE info
I added to a note in my project hoping that it would fix the problem, but it made no difference. Still getting the same error.
I checked the index.xml file which had the SAME date as before (10/29/13) and the same info

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ProjectNotes Version="1.0">
<Note ID="10">
<Title>General</Title>
</Note>
</ProjectNotes>

the "Note-10.rtf" in that same folder is still dated 10/29/13 -- as before. When opened in Word 2007 it is absolutely BLANK.

Any updated info on this?

Thanks,
Marta
