KIT Scenarist 0.7.2 beta 6

Hi guys.

Today we release KIT Scenarist 0.7.2 beta 6! In it, for the most part, some of the problems of previous versions were fixed and there are practically no major innovations. To be precise, the update includes:

• the application menu has been improved. Now, in addition to the basic actions on projects, a user's personal cabinet located on top;

• the user's avatar is now displayed in the new personal cabinet. Avatars are downloaded from the (if you do not have an avatar in this service, then your avatar will be Alexander the cat);
• the "About the program" dialog has been added;
• added the ability to transfer a local project to the cloud in one click (new button to the right of the project name on the start page);
• added the ability to import scripts from the desktop version of Celtx;
• improved display of the auxiliary panel in the Zen mode - now it will not appear from the slightest touch of the mouse or touchpad;
• in Zen mode, the display of statistical information about the script was added: duration and counters of pages/words/symbols;
• the page duration calculation has been reworked. Now it will be correctly calculated for any template;
• now when you select a block style from the quick formatting panel, the cursor will return to the script editor;
• the method of removing characters in paragraphs has been improved;
• contents of the nonprintable blocks and folder headers/footers are now skipped when counting words and symbols;
• improved interaction with the cloud service and fixed a number of problems when synchronizing projects;
• fixed the problem with blocks margins when exporting the script to DOCX-files for Hebrew;
• fixed the problem with the fall of the program when copying text documents into the research;
• fixed the problem with dialogues numbers on top of the page when exporting to PDF;
• fixed a bug with empty characters names in the reports;
• improved working with the German alphabet;
• fixed a problem with previewing the script after the program was launched.

The next beta will be the last in version 0.7.2 and after it will be released we will freeze the addition of new features and concentrate on improvements of the current functionality of the program.

Crashes when opening older projects.
I'm a big fan of you guys, I have your tee shirt and I've been using Scenarist for almost a year now. Almost everything about your software is really nifty and I plan to continue using it.
I have this issue, however.
I'm running Scenarist on Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit.
On the last few beta releases including the current version v0.7.2, whenever I try to open a project created with an older version of Scenarist, the program immediately crashes. I'm not sure if that is something that happens on all the other OS platforms but I've had this issue on Ubuntu and Mint for quite a while now. Because of this particular issue I've been using a very old version of Scenarist which works for me. I intend to address this issue because of what's mentioned in the blog about releasing the software soon. I hope this helps.

Hi Donald! Files from what version lead to a crash?

Projects saved from software versions 0.7.1.rc9 and earlier crashes when opened in later versions of the program.
