UI: Confusing import preferences

This is a UI nitpick.

Where: Scrivener 1.0RC5

Problem: Import Options in preferences don’t make it clear whether or not the settings interact (they don’t) or why. A reasonable person selecting “Convert HTML files to WebArchives” and then further checking “convert WebArchives to text,” might expect this:

Suggestion: Replace both inputs with a single dropdown menu:

This new setup is more slightly restrictive in that it doesn’t allow one thing that was previously possible: a person could import web pages as webarchives unless they are already webarchives, in which case it would change them.

It certainly is. :slight_smile: Whilst you have a point, this is implicit, given that the other option from the dropdown is “Convert HTML files to text”. So, this will remain as it is for now.

Best regards,

Fair enough. Believe me, if I could have found a show-stopper, I would have filed that instead. best, J
