We are releasing this pre-release beta in an attempt to iron out any remaining bugs in the software.
This beta contains the full functionality for release 1.0 of Scrivener for Windows and will expire on the 7th November 2011.
You can install right over the top of beta 045.
A bug fix list will be posted on the forums in due course; however, there is a known issue we discovered in the release process which we will fix before release. The known issue is as follows:
“If you have a multiple selection open on the corkboard, dragging and dropping the cards in the corkboard does not appear to move them on the corkboard but does move them around in the binder. Dragging and dropping on the corkboard or outliner should not be allowed when viewing a multiple selection.”
We’re not there yet, but I’d like to personally thank this wonderful community of writers for your
continued support, patience and feedback this past year. Without you all, Scrivener would not be what it is today. I know it’s still not perfect, were still working on that, but Scrivener is starting to shape up rather nicely.
This looks very polished to me! If I have to make a complaint it’s my usual one: my favorite shortcuts doesn’t seem to work in Full Screen mode. For instance,
Ctrl + K > Split at selection
Shift + Alt + Right Arrow > Go to next document
That said, please let’s pay for this beauty already! :mrgreen:
Very minor but URL’s are still pasted in twice when copied from the URL bar in Chrome
‘Niggered’ is still suggested as a ‘correction’ to Sniggered (Dictionary: English (UnitedKingdom))
Also minor: I have the ‘Show inspector’ button on the far right hand end of the Main Toolbar. When this is pressed ‘on’, the left edge of the button butts up against the right edge of the ‘search bar’ - which seems uncomfortably close. When the inspector button Is off, there’s no clash. I’m running Windows 7 on my laptop at 1280x800
Next update will be out in a week, so we’re reducing the number of versions floating around. The NaNoWriMo trial is special, for both Windows and Mac, because it extends the normal trial period so participants can write like fury all month and not worry about needing to update in the middle or running out of time on the trial.
ravensview - Simplenote sync is in the plan for the future but it’s not going to be a 1.0 feature.
Are you seeing this in 046? This was actually a bug in 035 that was fixed–you should see a little separator between the search bar and the inspector, whether the inspector is visible or hidden.
Other bugs/feature requests all noted, thank you guys.
Yeah, this ones been around for a while. Fixed today. Basically, Chrome is sending this as uri’s host/path%0ahttp://host/path
This doesn’t appear to be correct to the spec for uri’s. 0a translates to \n, so we can avoid it by checking for \n in the url retrieved as we shouldn’t ever get one anyway, and if we do its probably a chrome style uri. If someone does find something in the uri specs that allows for a \n to mean something then let me know and I’ll add it.
But, yes, this was grating me for some time too.
