I think that in the case of the Services menu, it is best for users to assign their own keyboard shortcuts. That way, you can pick something that you know will work with all of the programs that you use in your workflow, whereas I couldn't guarantee that with any shortcut I selected. I hope that ma...

Keyboard shortcuts for the Services menu?

Very minor wish, but I would love to be able to use the keyboard for Scrivener's Services Options. When I'm collecting stuff it would speed up matters if I didn't have move the cursor about to select the option. I notice other apps in the Services menu have keyboard shortcuts, so I thought for once ...

So, type in your search query, press Cmd-A to select all, and then Cmd-E. Now you can click on documents in the search results and Cmd-G to flip through results. Remember you can also form an Edit Scrivening session out of search results. This way, you can flip through all project search hits. Nice...

Slightly different search behabior?

I've noticed a few times when I use the all-project search function that I feel a little bump when I look inside one of the documents on the hits list. Often, it's too long for me to see immediately where my search term occurs in that text, so I have to use command-F to get where I want to be. The b...

Congratulations, Keith! I'm delighted to be a paid-up scrivener (scrivenite? scriventhusiast?)

Good luck with your book,

David

[quote="AmberV"]Something you could do that might be a bit easier than keeping shadow documents off in another location is simply duplicate the document you wish to edit, instead of snapshot, then press ^?? to make it a child of the current document, and finally, set its export flag to fal...

[quote="KB"]The reason it does work in project search yet is really because of the technical difficulties involved - for a start, snapshots are just archived away inside the project package, so opening them for searches would cause considerable slowdown; moreover, because they are tucked a...

[quote="AmberV"]The basic capability for this seems to exist. If you attempt a global search and replace, the option to affect snapshots exists, but project searching does not provide an option to search in snapshots.[/quote] Ah! Thank you for the quick hint. I can work it that way. Once a...

[quote="alexwein"]There are a number of users who use this combo of Dt, Scrivener and Mellel (and often Bookends as well). [/quote] That's me, too. Does anyone in our gang have an opinion about how to keep everything in synch? I sometimes find myself looking for a weblink in DT that I actu...

searchable snapshots

As one of those writers who likes to cut and restore and cut and restore stuff, I find my snapshots can multiply and include a lot of material. I find myself wishing for a Search function that would let me find that one paragraph from an older version. Possible? Scrivener is terrific. Look forward t...

Re: Christmas Hiatus

I just want to add my Happy New Year to the others. Scrivener is great, and I really appreciate the work you've done to make it easy, fast, intuitive and stable to use. Look forward to future versions. And to being able to send you some money for an application I use every day.

Cheers,

David
