This is for Version 1.11
This is a quick list reference guide to all the keyboard shortcuts in Scrivener so you can either print this out or import directly into Scrivener for easy reference.

I made it into PDF format for easy printing and also so one may import directly into Scrivener for quick reference. Any mistakes or misprints are soley mine. :-)

If one of the listed shortcuts does not work let me know and I will adjust it and upload the revised copy accordingly.

I hope you find this useful

.


Per Request and popular demand I have made two "Custom Backgrounds" that list the keyboard shortcuts so instead of using the "corkboard" if you want you can use one of these two custom backgrounds that list keybooard shortcuts.

One has a white background (for higher contrast) and the other a gray background (more subtle).
Also per user request the background images include:
 Denotes common keyboard shortcuts that are also found in many Apple applications such as OS X, Text Edit, Etc.

The  notation is not currently on the 1.11 PDF list but will be incorporated into the 1.12 list once I am done making that. I will also include 1.12 Custom backgrounds as well.

If you like the idea of the custom background but want a different background color (besides white or gray) or want a different text color just send me a request and I will make it available for you.
Enjoy :-)

Thanks Wock! I noticed that at least four are missing from the Inspector panel: Document Notes (Cmd-Opt-6), Project Notes (Cmd-Ctrl-6); Document References (Cmd-Opt-7), and Project References (Cmd-Ctrl-7).

I have made this post sticky so it will stay at the top of the Tips and Tricks forum.

Ahh I knew I would miss a few. :-)
I will correct it and replace with a new version in a minute. Thanks AmberV for the sticky!

Wow, thanks, Wock! Much much better than my scribbled notes and crazy-clipped forum posts. :D

Ask and you shall recieve! By popular demand you "background images" are available in two flavors. (Gray or White)

Enjoy :-)

Thanks a heap, Wock! Your handy Shortcuts Guide enables me to trim the forest of Post-It Notes that festoon my monitor and desk and make them look like a pathetic Mardi Gras mini-float.

Hi,

First of all, as I didn't say anything yet in this topic, I really like your cheat sheets, especially the pdf guide.

I found a little mistake today in the pdf guide: in the "Edit" paragraph, it says that "Find/Find Previous" shortcut is "y⌘G". It should be "⇧⌘G".
And I think the little sentence "*No Murlocs were hurt during the writing of this guide." should be on page 5, not on page 4.

If i found another mistake, I'll let you know. Thanks again for this useful guide ;)

Thanks Rodix.

Yeah the "y" was a character I was using a place holder for the shift symbol when I was making the guide. I'll get that corrected.

The No murlocs should be on page 5. (page 5 was added rather quickly)

I am working on the version for 1.12 so any other corrections or ideas from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

:-)

Please have a look at the end of each page:
- on page 1, 3 and 5, there is a horizontal bar
- on page 2 and 4 there isn't any
You could maybe add one on page 2 and page 4.

And the dates in the first post of this topic are wrong (we are in March!).

After these little fixes (and the 1.12 update), this guide will be nearly perfect.
