I’m living in Scrivener (and it’s a good place to reside) and I’ve been using it long enough to spot a few oddities. Tried searching for this one, but couldn’t spot any duplicates.
I’ve found an odd behaviour where Cmd + or Cmd - will and won’t increase and decrease the font size of a selection in the editor when a PDF file is present in the second pane.
Split your panes.
Load one or two text items into the panes. Select a word. Cmd + increases the selection’s font size by 1px, Cmd - decreases the selection’s font size by 1px. This behaviour is expected and consistent with TextEdit. (I use it quite frequently.)
Load one text item and one PDF into the panes.
3a. With the PDF active Cmd + and Cmd - zoom the entire PDF. (Expected behaviour)
3b. With the text document active. Select a word. Cmd + and Cmd - still zoom the PDF in the inactive pane. Cmd + and Cmd - can’t be coerced into increasing or decreasing the font size of the selection.
- Replace the PDF with a text document. Normal scenario resumes.
This may happen with other types of non text content, but I’ve not tested widely. Jpeg images do not cause the same Cmd + and Cmd - anomaly.
