Re: Autoforms

Scott,

thats exactly what the problem was. I figured it out after messing 
around with it.

Thanks for the help.

switched tab drawers hoses new window positions

I used to my tab drawers open on the right side.  And all of my saved
workspaces have the tab drawers also open on the right.  I recently
switched my tab drawers to now open on the left side.  This has not
changed anything in my workspaces; all saved browser windows still
open their tabs on the right side, regardless of OW's preferences.
However, when I create a new browser window, its default position is
shifted to the right by the width of the tab drawer.  Odder still,
the tab drawer is NOT open.

Anyone else see this?  If so, I'll file a bug.

Re: switched tab drawers hoses new window positions

I did the same thing - I now prefer the tab drawer on the left, but all 
the workspaces had it on the right. I guess this is the right 
behaviour, as the workspace is meant to save everything - window size, 
position etc. Although this does go against the preference that I set.

To get them over to the left I found that hiding and showing the tab 
drawer again put it to the left.

Cheers,
Jon

favorites (sic) disappear from bookmarks menu

When using OW 5.1, I do not display the favorites bar, but rather
access them from the bookmarks pulldown menu. Frequently, however,
this entry disappears from the menu. If I open the bookmarks manager,
the favorites are there, but they do not occur in the menu. Sometimes
restarting OW makes the menu re-appear, but not always. I thought this
was RSS-related, since thats what I use the favorites folder for, but
deleting the RSS entries did not permanently fix the problem.

On a related note, I had to delete one favorites bookmark
(del.icio.us) 3 times before OW remembered it. The first 2 times, it
reappeared on restart of the program.

Thanks,
Chris

Re: Some issues that need fixin'

If I can just butt in to that list, I'd like to add "moving bookmark 
folders creates a duplicate".

Some issues that need fixin'

I gotta say, I was pretty shocked to see OW 5.1 go GM with some pretty 
glaring bugs still present - specifically:

1. View source issue. This is very much reproducible and happens quite 
often. Viewing source will either display the source, the incorrect 
file (I've often gotten the CSS or linked JS file displayed instead of 
what I originally wanted to view, which was the HTML), or displays 
complete garbage. The latter looks like OW is trying to show the ASCII 
contents of an image or binary file. I seem to get the wrong file or 
garbage at least 65% of the time.

2. History problems. Going back in history often either pulls incorrect 
embedded content (images get moved around or squished / stretched into 
the wrong position on the page), or pulls a solitary image instead of a 
page. Again, I see this too often.

3. Instability. OW crashes on me at least one a day, for what seems to 
be the most benign reasons (opening a menu, loading a page, etc.). I 
know others have mentioned that OW is rock solid for them, but even 
after a clean install on a virgin system I'm seeing instability.

I've deleted all OW support files (caches, Application Support folder, 
application) and reinstalled, and also did a clean install on my 
PowerBook, with no luck. These issues are reproducible across three 
machines, with two of them completely clean (no haxies, input managers, 
etc.).

I love OW and still try to use it every day, but these issues are 
making it pretty difficult to rely on. Could someone at OG acknowledge 
that these are at least known issues? Is there a plan to release a

Re: favorites (sic) disappear from bookmarks menu

Hey Chris,

I had the same problem, when I upgraded from the 5.1 Beta.  Here's what the
support guy told me to do:

"Thanks for writing in.  This problem is likely related to a certain
file that OmniWeb uses in the Application Support folder.

Quit OmniWeb, then delete:

<~/Library/Applications Support/OmniWeb 5/Groups.plist>

You then have to restart OmniWeb. Note that you will loose any bookmark
groups you created (the aliases that can be added under the divider
line). This does not affect the actual folders or bookmarks which will
still exist. You can re-create these by dragging any items you wish to
have on the sidebar from your Personal Bookmarks or other bookmark
collections."

Have you tried this yet?  Once I did, the problem went away and I haven't
noticed it come up again.

I hope this helps!

Workspaces

When I go to the workspaces menu and then click on "show workspaces", I 
see a list of workspaces.  How do I delete them?  As it is now, every 
time I open OW I get a whole bunch of pages that open.  I just want my 
default page to open.

Click the "minus" button?

Workspaces

Thanks.  I tried that but the minus sign is grayed out so nothing 
happens.  Plus the information I need to get rid of is in the right 
hand column.
