"Shake to Undo" is an annoying "feature" of iOS that can be controlled from Settings App > General > Accessibility .yosimiti wrote:I figured out how undo/redo -- you shake the iphone/ipod and up pops a message. I find this very counterintuitive and gets in the way of my writing, as I don't want to shake my device every time I want to undo or redo anything. It's all a very strange and silly experience. It would make much more sense if there were a shortcut (one as well that didn't require you accept whether you want to undo or redo on the screen itself but more or less just did it). [Snipped]

Essentially in using Scrivener for iOS with an external keyboard, I can't seem to use the same shortcuts I usually do in Scrivener for MacOS. I understand this is to be expected as not everything can be transcribed but in using my external keyboard to type on my iPod, it would really be nice if there were a shortcut for 'undo' and 'redo'. Command Z or Option Z doesn't seem to work. Perhaps I'm missing something or there's another way to do this.

Further, shift-cmd-z works for Undo. OTOH, the cmd-z shortcuts don't show up on the iPad list of keyboard shortcuts.

So, Keith, I take it then that it's a hardware issue, not a software issue? Is there any way to know if a external keyboard supports shortcut undo/redo in Scrivener beyond simply purchasing it and testing it out? Sorry, your post was kinda dense and I'm not that computer-programmer-savvy.
In the meantime, I'm thinking of making some kind of magic keyboard-iPod contraption. I'll let you guys in on what I end up designing.
