I was wondering whether it would be possible for manuscripts to
- remember the window size from the last startup upon launch
This is in the works. It already works when you close the app with Cmd+Q, it does not yet work for documents closed separately.
- show the inspector by default
Remembering this state from last launch makes sense but I don't think we intend to make this on by default.
- enable the use of trackpad gestures for zooming
Hmm, interesting idea. Are there other writing tools which do this in a way that you'd like to see in Manuscripts or was this more blue skies?
Also, I haven't had luck using the shortcut for full screen view (^ cmd F) - this combination will only bring up the search menu (cmd F)?
It sounds like you are confusing Cmd+Option+F (which brings up find / replace) and Cmd+Ctrl+F which brings up the fullscreen (tested just now that it indeed works).
