I kind of liked this feature, too. I've seen it in several other Cocoa applications -- might not be too difficult to add.

What I've been doing in Scrivener, with my checklists, is just been striking out text, which has a handy shortcut, Cmd-Opt-<hyphen>.

It exists, just in a different format than you might be used to, because you can choose to reset to either your default format choice, or the project specific export format choice. Both are accessible in the Edit menu, under "Convert Format of Selected Documents." Nice thing about this too...

This forum is starting to get the "We've all been up for 28 hours now" feel to it.

Aw! And I saw the subject line of this thread and thought people were already reporting B3 threads. Got me all excited.

A non-blinking cursor would do, too. And I hate blinking cursors anyway. :)

But yes, hacking system core functions, n`mind!

Hey now, before you came along, I was the biggest nag. I am just grateful that someone else can take all of the heat, now. ;)

Actually, one point: With 1.5 you could set it up to act like a regular application when it comes to inline format. The preferences allows you define a keyboard shortcut which will apply a formatting rule to a range of text, or input them for you as you type. So you could assign Cmd-I to insert the ...

...and then there are the freaky weird people like me that discarded with the whole "month" thing and just count up from 001 every year. :) Though, if B3 will take the short date system setting, it might actually work if the system is set up that way. Happy 280th day of the year, by the way!

*Nod* And any sort of visual addition to the outliner will, in the end, subtract from the cleanliness of the design aesthetic. Back to the concept of transitions (which knocks about two ducks with one pellet): How difficult would it be to have something similar to the way some virtual desktops (and ...

Hmm. I still think it is a risky direction to go, given the multiple document state angle. Apple's selection graphics do look very nice aesthetically, though, and would negate the pixel jumping problem. So flickering between states would be less distracting. What about the concern of context? In oth...

The opening of the Tips & Tricks forum is definitely going to assuage the documentation need. It is my philosophy that the documentation for an application should explain the tools as best as it can, but stay out of implementation as much as possible. That is what tutorials and user supported fo...

Perfect. Thanks, Keith. And now I must go back on what I said earlier about being able to wait two weeks -- I think I'm getting rather anxious for b3. Ha.
