With this set-up:

Press Shift+Delete

Scrivener - 2.jpg

This is the result. Press Shift+Delete again.

And this is the result. What I expected to happen was that, after the first delete, the focus in the left pane would move to the next card down, and that it would be deleted. Indeed this card is now displayed in the right hand pane. In fact there is no card in focus in the left pane, and Scrivener decides to delete the folder highlighted in the binder instead. The real problem about this is that I often work without the binder visible, and so I don't realise that the folder has been deleted. I keep on working on it, unaware that I am in fact writing in a file that is now in Trash.
