|Platform||Mac||OS||El Capitan||OS Version||10.11.6|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001981: WwI §1.8 mentions the no-longer-existent Skein and Transcript panels|
|Description||WwI §1.8 says "When the project has never been played at all, if we switch to the Skein panel (or open it opposite the Story panel) we will only find this:"|
"Only one thread is ever drawn thickly -- the one currently being shown in the Transcript panel, which we will come to later on."
"In fact, though, Inform can remember for us, using the Transcript panel. This is closely joined to the Skein panel, and it's often convenient to flip between the two."
But the Skein and Transcript panels have now been combined into the Testing panel.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
See WwI §1.8.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
In fact, the problem goes beyond merely mentioning the wrong panel, to the extent that this should probably be considered a serious bug. The Testing interface is very different from the Skein and Transcript interface, so that a lot of the things mentioned in WwI §1.8 don't apply to the Mac IDE anymore. Knot controls don't appear when you hover over a knot (you need to use the pop-up menu), and there isn't a two-column transcript view.
More seriously, there no longer appears to be a way to annotate a knot (no such option appears on the pop-up menu). This breaks the "release along with a solution" option. Forum thread: http://www.intfiction.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=21074 [^]
|The annotation issue is now filed separately as http://inform7.com/mantis/view.php?id=1986 [^] .|
