Hi, I’m somewhat new to Scrivener and love it so far. One thing that was driving me crazy was the dramatic scary thing that happened whenever I would hit Command+K to add a link. Searching the forum, I see that I’m not alone and I found a workaround.
To re-assign a keyboard shortcut through macOS, specifically for Cmd+K:
System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts > + > Add Link…
In many apps, including Google Docs, Gmail, Evernote, word processors, etc., Cmd+K adds a link to highlighted text. As a reporter, inline links are used extensively to link to source material, both to accelerate the fact checking process and for articles published online.
I probably use this shortcut several hundred times per week.It is seared in my brain across apps and it’s super hard to remember that it doesn’t work in Scrivener and I unintentionally did it all the time. Whatever Cmd+K actually does frightens me, it makes it look like most of a document disappeared, which is frustrating when I’m on a tight deadline.
Even though I found a workaround for this problem, looks like a lot of people would appreciate this shortcut aligning with the many other apps writers use regularly.
Thanks for considering.
