Restoring a resized image to its original size.

Is there a quick way to restore a resized image to its original size? I know I can double-click the image to bring up the scale sliders, but there is nothing obvious to indicate when the scaling is back to 100% — unless that is when the sliders are exactly in the middle, in which case maybe there co...

Re: Menu navigation with the keyboard (Control-F2).

You sussed it -- it was some of my fancy QuicKeys biting me while I wasn't looking. I get so used to having them around that I forget I've even defined them. In this case I had a couple of favorite QuicKeys set to trigger with the up and down arrows. Now I'll have to figure out a work around. Sorry ...

Menu navigation with the keyboard (Control-F2).

This could be a wish, or maybe it's a bug. In OSX, pressing Control-F2 moves the focus to the menu bar, and one can then use the arrow keys to navigate left and right or up and down an application's drop-down menus. Except in Scrivener, using the down key causes the menu to lose focus, so that it is...

Hear, hear!

(To avoid confusion here in the early years of 21st century, I use yyyy/mm/dd. 93/02/10 is easy to parse, but 11/02/10 takes us into realms of Gödelian undecidability.)

Re: "Browse" to select local file when making links?

Right, I'm trying to avoid leaving Scrivener and rummaging around in the Finder. It seems awkward to have to do that, especially since I always have Scrivener and my Finder windows maximized, so that both applications are never visible at the same time. (I do make use of a very handy Finder feature,...

"Browse" to select local file when making links?

When invoking Edit > Link... to make a link to a local file in an editor document, it would be nice if there were an option (a button and/or keyboard command -- Command-O comes to mind) to open a standard browse window to navigate the hard-drive, in addition to drag and drop, or typing in the file p...

Re: Cancel Scrivenings "Loading Text"?

No, I am using (very happily!) the latest version of Scrivener, but the MBP is of 2007 vintage, running Tiger. I hadn't tried Command-[ to cancel loading, but that certainly does the trick. Thanks.

Cancel Scrivenings "Loading Text"?

Sometimes in Scrivenings mode I accidentally click on a folder in the binder that is so jam-packed with files that it can take my old MBP ten or more seconds to process before it displays all the text. During that time I get the "Loading Text" message with the spinning progress timer, and ...

Re: Scrivener Links disappear when comments/footnotes deleted

I see the conflict now with double linking -- this is a limitation of rft, correct? Html can't parse overlapping links either, now that I think about it. Otherwise, I could imagine a scenario in which a popup menu would allow you choose which link you wanted to use with simultaneously linked and com...

Scrivener Links disappear when comments/footnotes deleted

Steps to reproduce: Select some text in an editor document. Create a Scrivener link (to web or file, etc.) Select the same text (or more) containing the link. Create Comment or Footnote. Delete Comment or Footnote. Original Scrivener link is deleted. There may be a reason for this behavior that I do...

Re: Complete Project in Outline View?

Thanks Keith, that makes sense. Showing or hiding the binder is not a big deal; I just wanted to be able to us the same QuicKey shortcut to jump around entirely from within the outliner. (Although, as I think about it, I've already got a workable solution: have my "up" shortcut reveal the ...

Complete Project in Outline View?

I know this might seem redundant -- that's what the Binder is for. But lately I've been working a lot in outline view with the binder and inspector hidden. I have set up navigation shortcuts to allow me to move up and down in the project hierarchy. I am able to navigate all the way down to the docum...

Re: newbie question: arrow keys for single line scrolling

Another option is to use a macros program like QuicKeys . I have QuicKeys set up so that when I press the up or down arrows, QuicKeys presses the arrow key and then immediately types Command-J (Edit > Find > Jump to Selection), which automatically centers the active line. Now my active line always i...

Re: Entering full screen clears undo history.

I agree, a warning every time would be obnoxious, but I do think it should be noted somewhere in the manual at least (with another note to the effect that switching applications will kill full screen mode, with the same result). An unexpected loss of the undo history is certain to produce stomach ch...

Re: Entering full screen clears undo history.

Ah, I was indeed in Scrivenings mode; with a single document open the undo history remained when switching modes. You say that the undo stack "may" not be maintained for Scrivenings; are there circumstances when it is? Or is this an inherent limitation of working with Scrivenings? Meanwhil...
