m. c. de marco: To invent new life and new civilizations...

Let's NaNo!

Gentlemen, start your novels!

I usually start the NaNoWriMo month at midnight, but last night I decided to read a bit instead and start fresh in the morning. Now I’m trying to remember my Scrivener shortcuts, since I’ve only been editing my hyperfiction stories lately, not starting a fresh one where I need to command-K frequently.

Since I work in plain text, I disabled the ruler shortcuts (command-R and shift-command-R) by overwriting them with shortcuts to some no-op commands (Bring All to Front and Arrange in Front), under System Preferences | Keyboard. I still needed to swap around Paste and Match Style with Paste to keep it looking like plain text, since Scrivener’s underlying format is actually RTF.
