Okay, I tried piggybacking on someone else’s thread, but will try as a separate question. I had some time ago been told that if I didn’t want to continually go through the rigamarole of typing special characters, I could use the custom autocomplete feature in Scrivener to create a list of words of with special characters, such as pinon with the Spanish spelling–the ~ over the n. However, when the custom autocomplete feature is checked, it never suggests this option, and with this feature checked Scrivener hangs a lot. If I have autocomplete checked without the “custom” option, it does suggest the Spanish spelling, but again it hangs a lot. Without any autocomplete options, Scrivener performs a lot better. Any ideas about this? I did not have “in script mode only” checked.
I have Mac 0S X 9.5 running Scriv 188.8.131.52. I have a 2011 11" Air that does not want to run a newer version of OS X; I’ve tried and had to roll it back, which is a bummer on a lot of fronts.
