I’ve been using Scrivener Windows Beta for Nanowrimo for the last couple of days and mostly I’m enjoying it. I wish I’d spent the days before Nano started familiarizing myself with the program before I started rather jumping straight in. Even with the video tutorial, some things took some getting used to.
And then today happened. I blame it again on me trying to figure out the program, rather than any real bug, per se. Except: Is there any way to specify where a new text sections gets inserted? There doesn’t appear to be any way to have it go at the beginning. Or move it easily to the beginning without it becoming a branch/folder? When I was trying to move it around I wound up with a blank text section and one of my existing sections (about 500 words worth) inside it. Thinking to get rid of blank one first, I deleted it and lost the work that was inside it. There didn’t seem to be any way to undo my mistake either. I had an easier time arranging things in the corkboard view.
I found my missing work! I’d forgotten about the Trash folder. I feel like an idiot panicking over that.
