I had the strangest behavior from version 23 under Ubuntu Natty w/ Gnome3.
It can be a little sluggish to register keypresses sometimes, which makes for fun mass deletions, but today it was like someone else was typing. Lag, incorrect keys, deletions occurring instead of input. It was bizarre. I restarted Scrivener and it was fine.
Anyone else run into this?
edit: Ah ha! It’s repeatable. All I have to do is hold down backspace for one second and my input from then on is FUBAR.
edit: And just for the fun of it I booted up my Windows VM to see if it occurs in that situation. It does not. Only in the native Linux version. :
I don’t typically use spell check in editors (I create a lot of new words, use jargon, etc.) so I hadn’t attempted to check anything. Running a spell check on a file I know has non-dictionary words yields no errors, so either I need to link the dictionary to the app or the feature isn’t functional for me.
