I'm yet somewhat confused about, well, Apple ignores the HIG sometimes, so it's a good thing to do, but they shouldn't, and developers hope that things get better, but in the meantime, they use Apple as a reason to ignore the HIG.
(Sighs.) This is not what I am doing, not at all. But it is a valid point that Apple don't stick to them. Why not? Because OS X is evolving. As for Force Save: Look, it makes sense. I have listened to other views on this topic, weighed them up, and ultimately I disagree. I have to go with what I think is right. I value feedback, and if you familiarise yourself with the forum's archives, given your tone I think you will be surprised at just how much of Scrivener's development has been pushed forward by user feedback and suggestions. The whole order of the menus was rearranged very carefully to fit in more with the HIG because of user suggestions. The way the corkboard is automatically selected when you select a folder - user suggestion. The way multiple cards are displayed when you select multiple items in the binder - user suggestion (Eiron's, in fact, and Amber's too, I think). Underline in header view to indicate current document - user suggestion. Well, I won't go on, because I would be here for days. Suffice to say that I do value suggestions and feedback, and the historical development of the program backs this statement up, and I may get quite narked if anyone suggests otherwise. That said, Scrivener is not written by committee. I seriously consider all feedback, and then I make a decision. Often, that decision will be "no". In this case, "Force Save" makes complete sense. Scrivener auto-saves for you whenever changes have been made and the program has been inactive for two seconds (or when it is closed). In such cases, many programs do not have a Save feature at all. So in Scrivener, you are "forcing" a save.
Of course, it's Keith's program, and if he wants to say Write the Current Stack Operands to Disc in Their Current State rather than Save, that's his choice. Mainly, I've been using Scrivener to write for a bit over a week, it seems quite nice for that, and really, as long as I just hit Command S, I don't even have to see the menu.
Right, "Write the Current Stack Operands to Disc in Their Current State" it is. Just to please you.
Oh, you know what? Sod it. I'll just rename "Force Save" to "Save". This is too many words over something so trivial. I'll do it. Fine.
