Splitting an item: Why is UR using entire paragraph as a title
Appreciate the new 6.1 release.

When splitting an info item containing three paragraphs, it using entire paragraph as new info item titles and item text is blank.

This is, to me, is counter-productive. I have to go to each item and copy/past titles to text area and trim the titles afterwards.

Why can't UR just use the first line as a title and insert entire paragraph in editor.

What is the intended use-case for this feature i.e. splitting an item? For mine, it helps me break down big articles by inserting delimiters at several places and let UR do the rest.

Is this beyond scope of this feature?

Testing was primarily with breaking up by paragraphs, but that should be supported as well. We will investigate.

Actually, thinking about it, paragraph or not, it should not matter. I'm thinking that UR splits by whatever delimiter string user has specified regardless of what appears between them.

On a different issue, but may be related, I have noticed this feature (split/join/append) does not apply to mouse actions e.g. dragging text to an info item. If I paste text, it gets appended, but dragging it does not append. It creates a new child.

Is there a way, for example, to press a modifier key i.e. shift to have it append while dragging.

In the latest download (,

1) The split behavior has been modified to truncate the item title at the MaxCharsForItemTitle registry setting (which also trims partial words and truncates at first newline).

2) When joining, whether item titles are included is now determined by registry setting IncludeItemTitleOnJoin.

See for more details.

Split/join functionality is not supported during drag/drop.

Thank you. Title is set much better now with the latest update.

The split functionality behavior, however, has a bug, I think.

The option says 'separator text ..' , but it is dealing with it as if it is 'separator character'. For example ...

My separator text is three hashes '###'. However, 'this is #2' line gets split into two just because there is a single hash in it. This shouldn't happen.

UR is splitting on every character in the 'character text', not the entire string.

Am I misunderstanding this feature or it is not working as intended?

Thanks again.

You are correct. This is fixed in the latest download (same version as before). Thanks.

Works as intended.
Thank you.

I noticed today when I split an rtf item (with formatting), the resultant items loose their formatting. I spend hours formatting content. It is so counter-productive to loose this much work.
Is there away to preserve formatting?

By the way ...
Thanks a bunch for fixing the html image import bug. What a relief :)
