Not returning to left off

Scrivener is not returning to where left off in document after closing application and reopening

Hello GLM. Welcome to the world of Scrivener!

In Scrivener, go to Options, under the File menu. Under General, Startup, the very first option is to reopen projects that were open when you quit.

Or - are you looking to return to a particular place in a document? In that case, when I close Scrivener with the editors in a certain state and displaying certain documents, the next time I open the project, it is in the same state as it was (though possibly not always scrolled to the exact same spot.)
