Insert key stopped working again, originally fixed under LH4602

See viewtopic.php?f=57&t=58919&p=302112&hilit=overtype#p302112

As of version 33, the insert key once again does nothing. Scrivener is stuck in insert mode, can't put it into overtype mode.

Woops. Nope, not fixed, or it came back with the recent update. Still happening. At least I can get rid of them by deleting the preceding paragraph mark.

Still needs fixing.

Re: [LH4062] "Use the Insert key to control overtype mode" option doesn't work

And now for the appeal to Santa. I can find no indicator to tell me which mode, insert or overtype, I'm currently in. Word changes the cursor AND clearly indicates in the status bar whether it's in "Insert" or "Overtype". Couldn't Scrivener do similar? I'd be happy with just chan...

Re: [LH3192] Find and replace bug?

This is STILL occurring in Beta 26. Find, then Replace & Find will replace the first occurrence in the "Find:" box and find the next one, but after the first one all it does is leave the one just found as is (no replacement) and finds the next one, then again, then again, changing none...

Re: [LH3195] Comments won't go away

I took to the habit of deleting the paragraph mark just prior to the place highlighted by a comment I deleted, which worked to keep it from reappearing. I just noticed that even if I don't do that, a deleted comment no longer reappears.

So I'm calling this one fixed! Thanks guys!

Opened scrivner and same file opened in the new Window position. Arguing with the DEV, vs listneing will ...

Re: [BUG] Scrivener now opens with window maximized no matter what

This has not changed. Most likely your project crashes upon shut down and the last window geometry is not saved. Try closing Scrivener in a different mode(Corkboard/Outliner/Single document mode) and check if it restores correctly the size upon restart. tiho_d, sorry, I beg to differ. I don't know ...

[LH4098] Style selection list behavior (drop-down box on ribbon)

Just call me Lord of the Nits, lol. Another minor annoyance that annoys me many times a day... The drop-down list of styles on the ribbon behaves differently depending on where and how you click it. A. If you click anywhere in the box except the drop-down triangle/arrow on the right, the list drops ...

[BUG] Scrivener now opens with window maximized no matter what

Re: Bug: Insert key deactivated on every launch

Another irksome change that came with this version is that Scrivener now opens, no matter what, with its window maximized. Please revert back to the standard behavior of opening the window in whichever state it was the last time I closed it. Thanks! Separate bug. If you report it separately, it wil...
