Command-W closes document instead of window with focus

On several occasions, I find myself accidentally closing the document window when I attempt to close a window with command-W. For if I try to search for something, and then change my mind, Cmd-W closes the document, not the “Find” window.

This seems counter to the expected behavior (sorry, behaviour :slight_smile:) of other Mac apps…

Not a massive problem, but frustrating nonetheless.

Okay, fixed this for beta 3… I don’t know why I set it up like this, actually, when I set up Scrivener Gold as it should be.

You know, Scrivener Gold used all English spelling throughout, and I only very reluctantly used the American standard in Scrivener (and then only so that Scrivener didn’t stand out as a little eccentric)… Just because old Webster decided to go through the language and methodically remove all of those Anglo-Norman corruptions of the Latin and Greek, I don’t know… :slight_smile:

Personnelly, yt ært ðe chaos ove aulde Yngliche wyche settes pleasyr a fyre upon myne hartt!

I used to be very involved in working with Blosxom, which used a lot of the UK English spellings. Strangely, I now find myself using them fairly frequently (I actually included the ‘u’ when I first typed behavior, hence the joke above… ) I frequently have to think about which spelling is expected of me when typing words like colour, and behaviour. All thanks to blosxom…

I have the same issue after programming… English programming languages all use American spellings, so I have hell spelling “colour” these days.

Makes me smile. Just got to add my colourful ‘two bob’s worth’ (Two shillings paid for information, in both UK English and Australian - which is probably English).

Both Oxford English and Macquarie Australian dictionaries use the traditional forms of UK English for all contemporary English spelling.

The Australian Macquarie is much more vital of course because, while it holds to the English traditional forms, it adds wonderful, colourful colloquialisms (such as ‘bonza’, ‘beaudy’, ‘bottler’ all meaning pretty much, ‘really good’ - or, ‘how I feel about Scrivener’).

Most Law based on Westminster legal precedents is framed in traditional English, while much modern language, such as digital technology and Air Traffic Control English is American.

Other forms, (Scottish, Welsh, Canadian) … Well that’s another story! A really colourful story, at that.

Stop it you lot!!! We are all filling in time until b3 - you can’t fool me. Terrible behaviour - and we are all grown-ups too!!!
