when I drag a link from a Web page into the Reference Pane, it works as expected. But when I drag the URL from the address bar of Safari, I can’t add the link to the Pane. Same happens with Firefox.
(Using OSX 10.6.4, Safari 5.0, Scrivener 1.54)
Are you dragging the website icon to the pane, or the URL text? You can do either when importing into the Binder, but the reference pane requires the icon to be dragged in from Safari; has to do with the way Safari handles drags, I think. I’m not sure why Firefox isn’t working for you though, both methods work for me.
