Hi, I’m new to Scrivener, and so far, I love it. Although I’ve found a few little bugs, (more on those later in the bugs forum) but what I’m wondering is if I’m doing something wrong or missing something in the substitutions options tools. I have several words, that I want to have replaced as I type them, mostly because they use characters such as ā, í, á and such. However, it doesn’t always work! It works on some words, and not others.
I’ve gone to Tools>> Options>> Corrections and tried to enter in my corrections by clicking on the “Edit Submissions” button, and adding the words I want to have replaced in the list. It works for some, but not all of the words I’ve entered. What am I doing wrong? Why doesn’t it change Daithid to Dáithíd, but it changes Ayleth to Āyleth?
Also, I’m notorious for accidentally holding down the shift key as I type the first letter of a word in a new sentence so I tried to set it to change words like THe to the automatically, but it doesn’t. How do I get it to work correctly? I don’t want the auto-correct on, because it changes words that it doesn’t recognize to something it “thinks” the word should be. When writing with different languages, auto-correct is inconvenient at best…but it would be nice to have it fix my two caps in a row for me. Any help would be appreciated.
