Version: Beta (1183694) 64-bit - FEEDBACK, BUGS & REQUESTS

Loving the new vers, but there are still quite a few BUGS:

The ‘automatically open in other editor’ button doesn’t work. My favourite thing in my custom layout in last Scriv vers was that I could click a card and it would open that scene in text in other editor (when button was enabled). This is no longer working in new vers, because the button doesn’t remember to stay on when switching back to single split view, and doesn’t open the clicked card in a new split view from single view when on anyway.
THIS IS A BUG. Please fix and make it function as well as in last vers.

No hotkey shortcut for open in copyholder, which would be extremely useful, especially if this hotkey worked from corkboard, which is my most used view. Spacebar as default hotkey would be great, as this has no default function in corkboard view.

And the card ratio is still set to 2X5 as lowest ratio, whereas the last vers could be set to 1x5, which as you can see above I used to good effect - the purpose of this isn’t simply aesthetic, rather it is to fit ALL scenes on screen at once, which is an invaluable way to view the entire script, and the entire reason for my chosen layout method.

SO PLEEEEEEEAAAAAASE reinstate the 1x5 card ratio in corkboard,

Also, smaller gaps between cards and customizable multi selection separator line length would also be good. And it would be great if there were an option where the cards on corkboard automatically resized so that all cards resized to fit window, like I have done manually altering size in attached pics.

Could we have the BLUE/ORANGE line signifier for LOCKED/UNLOCKED editor visible even when header view is disabled please? I like this line but I don’t need all the other stuff in the header view.

The new multi-select function in corkboard is a great new addition. Many thanks.

The info pop-up at the footer of text editor is also v useful.

You may ask why can’t I just use binder? That is because as the script grows it soon becomes crowded, as evidenced in pic below (more developed project in Scriv 1), which is when viewing the whole in corkboard becomes vital for me - like looking up at an actual corkboard - the purpose is to see the film as whole. This is not possible in bonder view without scrolling up and down, and is less dynamic in a long list without scene description (ditto outliner, list view)

This is why I am persistently requesting the amendments to the corkview functionality to keep the best from last vers which worked well, and to add a few tweaks which would really improve user experience IMO…

I think this is working okay actually. Maybe I tested it badly, but seems fine.

The other points are still valid issues though.


Well, half: it doesn’t remember to stay on. Each time you unsplit the editor it toggles off. So when you split the editor you have to turn it back on again. It just stayed on in the last vers, which was more time saving and intuitive.
