When I try to split a scrivening via right click, I have to choose "Split at selection" twice before the function activates.
How to:
  • Mark the lower half of a scrivening (mine was in a folder)
  • Right click on the marked text and pick "Split at selection"

This option works fine if you don't mark the text, so maybe I'm using it wrong.

If I understand your question correctly, I'm unable to replicate this.

I've used Windows v1 and beta .34, and both seem to split exactly where I've placed my cursor, just as soon as I select "Split At Selection" in the right click menu.

If you just want to split, don’t select any text. Just put the cursor where you want the split.
