It doesn’t make much sense: One would expect that when a setting is invoked with a checkmark, that it will remain in effect for the life of that project, or until the person who paid good money for the license, changes that setting.
This keeps happening. For example, when I called up the Outliner, 5 things I had checked under ‘Outliner Options’ were missing. MIA. Why in the world would that be?
So I dutifully dug into the menu and the nested menu over and over (this should really be configured so one can make multiple settings without having to dig into two menus for each setting) to reset them. Then I immediately saved the project, hoping that would make these settings permanent.
5 minutes later, having never left that single project and never paged away to a different app, I went to the Outliner again, and again, those settings were magically not there. No longer set. This makes zero logical sense. Why is this happening?
At the very least, is there a way to set a template of Outliner and Corkboard settings so if they disappear again, as they are doing over and over, I can invoke the template to get them the hell back without having to spend precious writing time futzing with menu settings over and over, which I have already set, multiple times? A template that won’t change other things?
It does not seem there is a logical reason or some interdependency with other features that would skunk this all the time as it does. This also seems like basic MacOS stuff, a common routine to set a menu choice, so it doesn’t seem coding for Scrivener could even eff up something this basic.
But it apparently has.
If anything fits the definition of a bug, this might be it. I would greatly appreciate if someone could look into this for us. I consider Scrivener one of the best-written applications ever, and I appreciate your dedication to making it better. Here is another chance to do that.
