Edit Menu commands do not work

  • This issue was buried in a previous thread, so I am creating a new thread.

    Commands under the Edit menu in Version 2 (Cut, Delete, etc.) do not work as far as I can tell. Please view this video: 


    I used menu commands for the video. Keyboard shortcuts (CMD-X, etc) do not work either.

  • Hi Dave, CTRL + X and other commends will work for you. The cut copy and paste option on the canvas/Edit screen will work and so will pressing delete on the keyboard when you have items selected.

    I will add a request for the edit options on the Application bar as well. 

  • Joe, 

    The issue about the Control key versus the Command key has been raised before. I believe Jon Air replied recently here: 


    After reading your reply, I went back and tested VideoScribe 2 Mac again. Unbelievably, the CUT command has been assigned to CNTRL-X instead of CMD-X, despite the fact that under the Edit menu, it says CMD-X.  the same is true for Copy, Paste, etc.

    There are multiple problems here: 

    1. The standard Macintosh user interface uses the CMD key, not the CNTRL key. 
    2. The VideoScribe menu shows CMD-X.
    3. When you click CMD-X, the File menu blinks as if something has happened, when in reality nothing has happened.
    Do you think this should be mentioned in the release notes?
  • For reference, the Macintosh user interface guidelines are here: 


    I noticed in the tutorial videos that there are a few Macintosh computers at Sparkol, so these should be easy enough to observe and test.

  • Hi Dave, I have moved this over to the Ideas and features section.
