unsolvable keyboard shortcut conflict on German keyboard

Scrivener has two menu commands “Forward in Document History”:

  • Forward in Document History (Menu: View->Editor), command-]
  • Forward in Document History (Menu: View->Editor->Alternate Editor), opt-command-]

On a German keyboard layout, this would translate into pressing the following keys:

  • command-]: opt-cmd-6
  • opt-command-]: opt-opt-cmd-6 - which isn’t possible

You can’t use OS X’s system settings to generate an individual shortcut as Scrivener uses one string (“Forward in Document History”) for two commands.

The same goes for the “Backward in Document History” command, which also collides with some of the Snapshot commands.

This is fixed for 2.0.
All the best,
