Mystery alert sounds

Lately, I have a very prominent computer chime whenever I copy or paste any amount of text within a Scrivener document. I figured it must be some preference somewhere but I can’t for the life of me find out how I control any sounds other than generally the sounds of Mac OS system.

a) What is the purpose of this chime?
b) How do I turn it off?


That’s annoying…

I’m pretty sure it isn’t coming from Scrivener. I can’t believe that we (or any editor) would use a notification sound for something as common as a Copy/Paste operation.

All Mac notification sounds are controlled from the Apple -> System Preferences -> Notifications panel. In addition to Scrivener, also check any clipboard managers or text expanders you might have.
