Selecting multiple documents to be summary-displayed in the right-hand editor, then keying Ctrl-Alt-Enter, I always get Cards—I always have to (re)set the display to Outline (Ctrl-3), which necessarily entails getting Scrivener's focus to that editor.

‘Always’ means that even when I have earlier set a summary display in that editor to Outline, when there is an intervening Text use of the editor, Cards come up again with the next summary-display—Scrivener has forgotten the most recent summary display, even when both sets of selected items are from the same container.

(However as is always the case in real life, SOMETIMES, the Outline format does persist, but only from one summary display to an immediately next summary display—the lack of persistence occurs when there is an intervening Text display in the editor.)
