The release notes for 7.18 RC1 have:

Notes Tool

  • Added the ability to select multiple notes using and apply bulk actions.
    • Ctrl/CMD+click to select individual notes
    • Shift+click to select a range of notes
    • Shift+up/down arrow to select a range of notes
  • Added the ability to drag and drop multiple notes.

On 7.18 RC2 on Windows 10 I find that this only works intermittently.

Ctrl / Shift click sometimes do as stated - but other times (most times) single notes are selected as though the Shift / Ctrl keys are being ignored.

Is anyone else seeing this?

I can select multiple notes, but assigning to a new Notebook (or No Notebook) doesn't "take".

I should clarify that it does in-fact work with dragging into a new notebook, but using the dropdown in the editor doesn't.

I am very excited about this feature, even if it still needs much work to perfect. I've wanted something like this for a long time, as have others. There's been several forum threads through the years about this feature. Thank you, Faithlife, for making this a reality.

Reuben,

What happens when you clear any facets and go back into the notebook? If you close and reopen the Notes Tool do they show up?

Most bulk actions seem to be working for me accept setting a group of notes to "No Notebook." I'm not having a problem setting a notebook or changing from one notebook to another. But I'm unable to remove notes from a notebook.

Other bulk actions that I've tested seem to work.

Phil, can you set a single note to "No Notebook"? Even that isn't working for me, so I don't think that the problem is with bulk actions.

No. I can't. I think you're right.

A big issue here is that CTRL+A doesn't work to select all notes. Instead it selects text in the panel.

I'm still struggling with selecting multiple notes - am I the only one?

The screencast shows this - the first couple of times I was using Shift-Click and then Ctrl-Click

Graham I also am having a problem selecting multiple notes, does it work for you if you float the window? I cannot watch your screen cast at the moment

Many thanks for that.

I had just seen your post in the Faithlife group and was going to check. And, yes, when I float the Notes panel it works fine.

Hopefully this will help to track the problem down.

A bit of an update, if I set my program scaling to 100% it works as expected also. I usually run at 90%. I will update the beta page. Does this help you?

Interesting - I’ll check

I am running at 140% scaling

Thanks again 

EDIT: And, yes, setting to 100% Program Scaling caused it to work correctly.

Great well hopefully easy to replicate... It works also at 200% scaling.

Thank you.
