i'm sorry but i am having to step away from Manuscripts for the time being. The paper that I have been working on is due in 2 weeks and i no longer have the time to persevere with the many quirks and bugs that are still present in Manuscripts. I want desperately for this software to mature enough for it to be usable but i fear that it is still a long way off. i'll keep tabs on how this product is developing and will return as soon as it appears to be in a more workable state.
i have lost work (thankfully recovered from a backup); copying and pasting doesn't work reliably; undo doesn't work reliably; citations don't work as i need them to - missing data such as edition, publisher / different formatting as in Papers, i have had trouble adding and removing sections. The screen sizing is bizarre. - inspector appearing off screen etc. I added a new paragraph style and it became the default (which i didn't want and couldn't undo). Unfortunately I don't have the time to go back and forth with support to get to the bottom of every little issue. This is not meant to be a beta product.
anyway....i have successfully exported my document to markdown and will complete it (frustration free) in Ulysses.
