I just tried to do something in Scrivener that makes me wonder if something has broken, or recently changed, or if I’m just not remembering correctly. The fact that I just spent several days working in Word (a relative rarity since I’ve been using Scriv) could be adding to the mystery.
In Scriv, I wanted to select several sequential paragraphs, and so with the cursor positioned at the start of the first paragraph, I pressed Ctrl+Shift+Down, expecting the text to be selected paragraph by paragraph. Instead, nothing happened at all. When I released the Ctrl-key, I was able to add to the selection, but only on a line by line basis (which is also how this forum post form works.) Ctrl+Shift+Left/Right works as expected, to add or remove text from the selection on a word by word basis. Intuitively, paras should work the same way, since the same type of work is being performed by the gestures. Seems like it should work that way. That’s how it works in Word.
Did Ctrl+Shift+Down/Up used to work? Or did I just reaccliamte to Word?
