It would be productive to have two instances of the Inspector open. For example, one for footnotes, the other one for references. Right now it’s an either-or proposition, we need both of them to save time. The second one could be a floating window like quick reference, but displaying the inspector.
Speaking of QuickReference, along the bottom is a menu where you can pick an Inspector pane to view. I’ll sometimes use that when I want two things like snapshots & references up at once. It’s also worth noting that the Inspector pane focus shortcuts also work in a QR panel.
You saved the day. What a piece of software… In the past I was fighting Scriv ferociously in one of my posts. You brought sanity to the discussion, and led me to make peace with Scriv. Thank you.
