Running Scrivener for Windows ver 18.104.22.168 on Windows 10 (latest build).
Normally, I won’t have more than one project open in Scrivener, but occasionally, I will keep another project open for convenience.
I will go to File > Recent Projects, and tick off the projects I want to have open.
When I want to end a session and close Scrivener, I would hit Alt+F4 (the shortcut listed for Exit), but doing so closes only the current project, and not any others I might have open at the same time.
If I hit Alt+F4 again, the new current project will be closed, and Scrivener will be closed if there are no more projects open.
Unfortunately, next time I start Scrivener, only the last project that was open (before hitting Alt+F4) will re-open.
However; if I click File > Exit, then all projects will close at once, and when I re-start Scrivener, all projects I had open during my last session will re-open, with the project I was last working on appearing on top.
If I hover my mouse cursor over the Scrivener icon in the taskbar, I see all of the projects I have open at the time, and can select the one I want to work on, leaving the other one open.
What confuses me is that next to File > Exit is the shortcut Alt+F4. So why doesn’t Alt+F4 perform the same function that File > Exit performs?
Is there a setting hidden deep within options that I have failed to tick or have ticked by mistake?
Thanks for your help
