Probably, I’m doing something wrong, or not using one of the countless settings correctly, but this is driving me nuts.
I’m working in “Novel Format” template mode, if that makes any sense. I have maybe 50 text index cards. Of course, only 16 fit on my screen at a time. So let’s say I scroll down a page or two to some random index card and double-click on the icon. The text editor comes up, and now I’m editing the text. I finish my changes, and now want to get back to the cork board. And here’s the problem.
(At this point I should mention that I love the product and can tell it’s written with tender loving care - I was a GUI developer for 20+ years, and I appreciate a finely polished product like this.)
Okay. The problem is, when I switch back to the cork board, it’s scrolled all the way to the top ! Aaarrgghh! I now have to hunt through the dozens of index cards for the one I was just editing. And that’s very hard to do, as I’m exhausted from all the writing I did. Half the time I can’t remember it, and just work on a different index card.
What I would expect the program to do – and the best programs are the ones that “just work the way you expect”, which sounds easy, but is damned difficult to produce – is remember the index card I was editing, select/highlight it, and scroll it into view. That way, I could find where I was working and continue on with the next card.
If there’s a trick to doing this I’d be grateful to hear it. Thanks.
