Released - 2nd July 2014

Hi All,

We released on the 2nd July 2014 as a bug fix release.

Details of the bugs addressed in this release include:-

  • Fixed a bug preventing Import and Split working for some file types, including RTF and DOC.
  • Fixed a bug where the UpArrow and DownArrow keys scrolled PDFs the opposite direction.
  • Fixed a bug where the Auto-Generate Synopsis button in the inspector did not work when the editor was in outliner or corkboard view.
  • Fixed bugs where the “Spell check complete” dialog was always disabled and closing it did not close the spell check window.
  • Fixed a bug where the word count in the editor footer included inspector footnotes and comments.
  • Fixed a bug where selecting a child document from New from Template also created its parent container.
  • Fixed a bug where the label colour did not always show in outliner rows when the option was enabled.
  • Fixed a bug where the label colour used in outliner rows did not appear in custom meta-data columns.
  • Fixed a bug where the “Starts with” and “Ends with” Find options were not working properly.
  • Fixed a bug where splitting a document continually appended -1 to the title rather than incrementing the number.
  • Addressed a bug where bold formatting could be lost during compile when using a translated interface because not all font variants are available in all languages. Scrivener now checks the font weight and attempts to find the closest match.
  • Changed the default font for inspector comments and footnotes to Arial to ensure compatibility across Windows versions. Also updated the default templates to use system fonts throughout.
  • Fixed a bug where multiple project notes did not remain in the correct order after closing and reopening a project.
  • Fixed a bug where running the project search did not reveal the binder if it was hidden.
  • Fixed a bug where deleting the source text after dragging and dropping from the editor or document notes to the inspector synopsis could also delete the dropped text.
  • Fixed a bug where Import & Split did not work for certain file types, including RTF and DOC. Also fixed a bug where the Import & Split could hang when importing with Scrivenings mode enabled.
  • Fixed a bug where repeatedly converting between inline and inspector notes could insert “Linked Comment” anchor text unnecessarily.
  • Fixed a bug where Scrivener links within and following a table did not work when compiled to supported formats.
  • Fixed a bug where an RTF bookmark could be applied to an incorrect range in the document if it did not include a title, prefix, or suffix.
  • Fixed a bug where editor text did not always initially display when creating a new document via New From Template while in Scrivenings mode.
  • Changed the default PDF exporter to “Microsoft Office” when Office 2007-2013 is installed, as this supports some additional features. Also changed the default DOC exporter to “RTF-Based” when Microsoft Office is not available, matching the previous 1.6.1 settings.
  • Invalid hyperlink characters are now percent-encoded when the link is added in Scrivener’s editor rather than during compile, ensuring the link works directly from Scrivener. Backslashes in linked file paths are also escaped (appearing as a double backslash) to ensure the links work after compile.
  • Fixed a bug where deleting a custom meta-data field that was visible in the outliner and had been reordered could cause all the outliner columns to display and overlap one another.
  • Fixed a freeze and occasional crash that could occur when sorting documents after they had been loaded in a Scrivenings session.
  • Fixed a bug where formatting options were not available when accessed via the accelerator keys rather than the mouse. This fix may also address the problem some users experienced of being unable to rename binder documents via the right-click context menu.
  • Fixed a bug where inspector footnote and comment formatting reverted after using “Convert to Default Formatting” in the note context menu.
  • Fixed a compile bug where overriding formatting in tables that originated outside of Scrivener could freeze Scrivener or introduce bizarre formatting errors and additional pages in the compiled document.
  • Optimised the code to avoid creating .links files unnecessarily and to clean up empty .links files on project close.
  • Fixed a bug where ebooks always used English as the content language regardless of the setting in compile’s Meta-Data.
  • Fixed a bug where selecting a binder item that formed part of a locked Scrivenings session switched focus to the editor.
  • Fixed a bug where the <$hn> tag was not properly replaced in linked titles in the text when used as a title prefix or suffix. Also refined the algorithm for hierarchical counting.
  • Fixed a bug where the Project Statistics Draft “Pages (printed)” count did not calculate.
  • Fixed a bug where centred and right-aligned text aligned to the edge of the editor regardless of the right-indent.
  • Adjusted the code for images to better ensure that compiled images use the same dimensions in Word as in Scrivener.
