Does anyone know of a key combination that opens the new “Navigate through Scrivenings” menu?
I know there are other ways to navigate through Scrivenings, but this would be a very clean way to call up the little overlay and move to another bit of text without leaving the keyboard, and without leaving the Scrivenings editor.
Thanks in advance!
There isn’t a shortcut for that button, however this particular capability has been available to keyboard users since version 2 was released—the button makes it easier to discover and immediate to those who prefer mice navigation. For the keyboard:
- Press ⌘3 to view the current session as an outline.
- Use the arrow keys or any other method of navigation to select the section you wish to jump to.
- Press ⌘1 to get back to Scrivenings view, with the selected item scrolled to.
Ahm… excuse an ignorant soul, but… exactly what are you talking about? What menu and button is it you are talking about? I can’t find any “Navigate through scrivenings” anywhere…
Lunk, there is a little button up by the binder navigation buttons in the editor header bar that will appear when viewing Scrivenings sessions (and PDF files that contain navigation). If you click that you can jump from one section to the next within the session.
The button has no menu access—otherwise we could add a shortcut that way.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, the method you describe is functionally the same, but I find the experience of using the new menu much neater and calmer because you don’t jump back and forth between views. It would be great if a key press could be defined for opening that menu. But I guess I am a lone soul in wishing that…
