While working through the interactive tutorial, I managed to crash the program. Can’t locate this in recent bugs, but apologies if this is posted elsewhere. Replicated several times with these steps.
- Click on “i” button to open inspector.
- Click in Synopsis note card to position cursor on a line.
- Click on green + Add Item button in navigation bar.
- Program crashes.
As for why I would do that, I was a little confused by the tutorial. The text in “Part 1, Step 5d: References” refers to a + sign. Instead of clicking on the plus sign for references, I went for the big green button.
Of course, the solution is: Don’t click on the wrong + sign! But, wanted to bring it up since it will crash the program.
Thanks for this report; looks like it may be an extension of a known bug having to do with the focus being inside a text form field. Good catch!
EDIT: For the interested, adding a new document/folder via any method while the focus is in the synopsis field of the inspector will cause a crash. Move the focus somewhere else (clicking away or hitting the tab key for instance) before adding a new document.
As far as the tutorial, Step 5 is explaining the different sections of the inspector. If you look at the bottom of the inspector while you’re viewing a text document, you’ll see a set of icon tabs. Clicking the second one from the left, that looks like a stack of books, will switch you to the “References” section of the inspector. This is just a change in the bottom third–the synopsis and general meta-data areas will still be above it–and you’ll see then a header for “Document References” with the “+” button referred to:
Clicking that will give you several methods for adding a reference to your document.
