I know that shortcuts are being implemented but do we know if the “Split at Selection" (ideally with selection "as Title”) exists?? I cannot find it listed.
Is it on its way with the new beta? I have 80,000 (maybe more) words that I want to slice up into many small scenes. Sorry to be a pain but it would really help a LOT to have a short cut.
If not does anyone know of a PC keyboard macro shortcut maker that will work with Win 7??
TIA, ATB Steve
PS Weird or what - I went into the demo doc and highlighted some random text to try out a Ctrl+K for the split. I didn’t notice that I had selected ““Split with Selection as Title” works in much the same way, except” doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo Positively spooky!
Andy thanks I will have a look then - sorry for misunderstanding
EDIT: Later… Still not sure it will work here. Just had a ten minute look. In Scrivener after I hit Alt D to get to Document I have to move the mouse to click on the split instructions as (unfortunately) the menu items have NOT been associated control letters (bad Scrivener very bad). If it CAN learn mouse clicks or down arrow movements then it should work.
You are right this functionality is rather buried in the documentation. But I LOVE the turn off CAPS LOCK function as I a very ham fisted typist!
Remember you should start by selecting a bit of text (to be used as the title) before running it.
Always good advice to try it on a test project/bit of text first to make sure it works before getting busy on your actual project.
I found it slow to start putting macros together in PhraseExpress to begin with but once you get started, it gets quicker and you start finding all sorts of things to automate. For example, I’ve got a couple set up to change the colour scheme in my main Word Processor so I can quickly switch between ‘day’ and ‘night’ modes.
Edit: Oh, it’s also worth saying that this macro depends on the menus staying the way they are. If they change (quite likely, especially during this Beta stage), you may need to amend the macro accordingly so be a little careful the first time you use it after installing a new version (such as the upcoming one due anytime before the 30th).
