Hi! When editing text in the Beta, should a Ctrl-down shortcut skip to the start of the next paragraph, as in Word? I know that shortcut moves between items in the binder, but should it also allow quick movement within text?
Related questions: is it possible to accidentally disable an existing keyboard shortcut? And is it possible to intentionally map new shortcuts/hotkeys within the program?
I know Lee was working on shortcut commands only days before compiling the beta. I believe the current list of shortcuts is available in the tutorial; Help > Open Tutorial. You can find the list in the binder in a document aptly titled ‘Scrivener For Windows Shortcuts’.
I will wait for either Lee or Ioa to get back to you on the mapping question. I only returned to the Windows environment a few days ago after being immersed in OS X for the last couple of years!
All the best,
Welcome back to Windows!
WinScriv recognizes several related text navigation shortcuts that aren’t included in the tutorial’s list, probably because they are almost universal in Windows programs. For example, Ctrl-left/right (skip to next word) and Shift-down/up (select full line of text) work perfectly. Ctrl-down/up is fairly common, so I was hoping it was also unlisted but supposed to be there.
It’s a minor issue–just a convenience thing. I’m mostly just enjoying the awesomeness of the program.
Thanks for the info!
You’re welcome on the info front. And thanks for the welcome back to Windows - he says whilst typing on his iMac, looking at Scrivener for Windows on the laptop.
