You should open up QuickCursor's user guide to get the full
answer to your question. The default keyboard shortcuts are to save
(command S) and close the window (command q) then you see the text
show back up in the other, originating app.
I’m sorry, I wrote the knowledge base article from the
perspective of someone wanting to edit text from another
application using Writer, not the other way around. I’ve
updated the article to make this clear. You’ll need to add
settings for Scrivener to QuickCursor, and as Susan says
that’s something the QuickCursor user guide should be able to
help you with.
Thank you Susan and Oli for your replies.
I read the article and did my all my command+S and Q, and I must
say that after a few attempts it worked, then it didn't work, so I
must conclude that it is still buggy.
It seems I am not the only one with this problem, and if you are
interested you can peek at the Scrivener forum at the link
I’ve tested editing Writer documents in other applications
using QuickCursor, and it seems to work ok for me in TextMate and
TextWrangler. I downloaded the Scrivener demo, but while notes are
created in the project’s Research folder, no text is passed
through. I was also unable to send text to Scrivener from TextMate,
so perhaps this is something to do with Scrivener’s ODB
support, or how it converts text to rich text (Writer only uses
One thing to keep in mind is QuickCursor expects the application
window or browser tab to still have focus when you return to the
app, so if you use QuickCursor to send text from a browser tab to
Writer, then while editing in Writer you switch to a different tab,
when you save and close the Writer window QuickCursor won’t
send the text back to the expected tab (unless you subsequently
made that tab active before saving).
