Re: Cursor misbehaving in tables

Thanks, Keith. Sorry if you have covered this elsewhere. Meanwhile, then, I won't bother you with some of the other quirky and inconsistently weird things my table is doing.

But as you say, it's no biggie. There are a ton of workarounds with WP or omni-outliner or even Tinderbox.

Cursor misbehaving in tables

Here's a new one in 1.50: weird cursor behavior in tables. I've got a three-column table. Not sure what I did to engineer this, but I have a paragraph I'm editing in the middle column. But when I try to insert the cursor in a particular area of that paragraph, the cursor instead keeps showing up in ...

Re: Highlight issue

I've run into a highlighting problem too; in fact, I've specifically logged on to the forum for the first time in a long while just to see if it was mentioned by anyone else. In normal view, once I've selected an arbitrary color and highlighted something, EVERY new page where I start to write begins...

Acknowledgments oversight

I'm such a rat. I just got my first copy of my very first book from the editor, and in being the Proud Parent admiring it, I realize that I didn't mention Keith and Scrivener in the acknowledgments! While it may actually be unusual to mention one's software in the acknowledgments, heck, Scrivener is...

Experimenting with a Curio workflow

I've owned Curio for some time and have neglected it. Your discussion and the idea of working on a good Curio workflow got me thinking...have been editing a tough part of my novel and using mind mapping as a way to brainstorm ideas, both on paper (just found some great BIG blank moleskine notebooks ...

Update: problem fixed!

Got it fixed. Indeed, all it took was using System Prefs to specify a command for it ... the key was to find a command not already in use (the rather difficult command-alt-shift-S choice that MacJournal uses was already taken as a statistics finder in Scrivener; however, command-D was available and ...

zooming

Yes, thanks. It is the zoom command. On the Mac on which the Strikethrough command does not work, I have the Zoom feature turned on; on the other Mac (where Strikethrough works in Scrivener), zoom is not turned on. Would that still mean that I should be able to find some other command that works for...

Strikethroughs

Keith: Thanks for your note. I checked and find that on one of my Macs I am not able to make the strikethrough command work; on the other, it works fine. So it is apparently something about the one Mac, but I have no idea how to change it. Any ideas on where to troubleshoot it? As for the standard A...

Strikethrough keyboard command problem

Working in Word I got in the habit of using Strikethrough during the editing process, crossing out but not deleting stuff that I'm thinking of deleting at a later revision. Scrivener has a strikethrough command in the Text menu and there is a keyboard command set (or whatever it's called: "alt-...

More editing suggestions

Thanks to all who have been replying to this question. It seems that Scrivener offers a rich set of possibilities for the editing phase(s) of writing. I just stumbled on a tactic that I've found helpful, which I'll share as well. I was reading some of Sol Stein's stuff on writing and he made a good ...

Scrivening is editing? Using Scrivener to edit novels

They say "writing is editing." I haven't been able to find a thread specifically on this topic so thought I'd toss it out, and I suspect it fits best in the "usage scenarios" section. Inkygirl brought up the use of Scrivener for novels and of course that's what it was designed fo...
