Werd Beta Update

Added more community requested features


Werd Beta has been updated with the following changes: 

  • Added quick quote button when replying
  • Added Ctrl + f as hotkey to filter the active chatty
  • Added the ability to save a draft of a post on the confirmation dialog when closing an unsubmitted post with the esc key
  • Filtering the chatty will show which posts match your search criteria with yellow preview text
  • Removed tooltips from embedded hyperlink buttons in posts to hopefully make those buttons more responsive
Filter highlighting

Everyone can get Werd for any Windows 10 device here

If you want to be added to the beta channel, let me know by sending me a SM with the email address you use as your MSA on the Windows Store.

Put any feedback or feature requests in the chatty thread.  Enjoy!

      i don't think the double-click on links issue is fixed, at least not completely.

      - open werd
      - click the first link in each root post one time
      - observe that none of the links open

      perhaps relevant is in posts with multiple links, the first click to any link in that post does nothing, but the second click to any link (even a different link) does open. but a click to a link in a different post again does nothing. it seems that it's the first click to a particular post that gets eaten

        this repro is definitely not comprehensive, eventually the links did start opening as i moved down the page clicking each link one time. something going on but i don't have a complete handle on the necessary steps

          This matches my experience on the existing version. I haven't tried the new beta yet.

        Hmm, yup. That's unfortunate. I guess I'll keep trying to figure out what the problem is. I don't think it's really reproducible with a debugger attached either (at least it didn't happen when I was working on it last night), so that's fun.

          don't know if it helps but the "show spoiler" link always works on the first click. something is different about the web links

        Alright, I think I got this fixed. Next alpha/beta will have it.
