Re: Moving folders between projects

Lunk, I haven't tried it on Mac yet but when I drag the file to the new project, the Windows version leaves the file in the old folder, too. Maybe Mac actually moves it. If so, great, Mac users are set! Windows users have some clean up. I called that (along with the Save As alternative which leaves ...

Re: Moving folders between projects

Thanks xiamenese. I logged this as a wish list request here: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=35956 Doesn't seem doable on ios. Doable but clunky on the desktop version. I tried it on the Windows version today and may go back and compare with the Mac implementation to...

Re: Ability to move/copy to a different project

OK, I'm using the Windows version as I type. In help, I finally found the "Splitting Projects Up" section and discovered I can open a second project and have both projects visible. I didn't know I could do that. Dragging seems to make a copy (not move) so you have to remember to trash the ...

Re: Ability to move/copy to a different project

Again, I'm trying to move a folder (or its documents) from one Scrivener project to another. When I'm in Project1, for example, I can't see Project2 to be able to drag items there. Using the Move command allows me to move LEFT, but once I get to the "top" of the project, I can't go further...

Re: Ability to move/copy to a different project

Actually, I have the Windows and Mac versions and I must be dense today because I can't see a way to move a document from one project to another. I can move it to other folders, but can't see a way to get it to another project. Still looking. Looking in help hasn't helped.

Ability to move/copy to a different project

I'd like to be able to move and copy folders from one project to another. Use cases: 1) Working on several projects, half asleep in the morning, and just did the work in the wrong place. Pain in rear to move it all around. 2) Modifying my usual template -- deciding on a better way -- and would like ...

Re: Rename project?

Thanks Silverdragon. So that's why that happens? Good to know how to avoid it.

Re: Unconventional usage for Scrivener - data management

3 is perfectly possible. I've been doing it for several years with a collaborator, as have others. Make sure your daughter is using Scrivener, put the active project in a shared Dropbox folder or Cubby. Then: a) follow the guidelines on using Dropbox/Cubby, ensuring you both always close the projec...

Moving folders between projects

Please don't laugh (too loud) if this is obvious but I can't figure it out. I made a folder and added some documents in the wrong Scrivener project. I would like to move the to the correct project. How do I do that? Thanks!
p.s. At this point, I'm even willing to MERGE projects if that is possible.

Re: Rename project?

geekmee,
When viewing the list of projects, try pressing and holding on the project name.

Re: Unconventional usage for Scrivener - data management

jenniferso, Just thought I'd a couple thoughts ... I want Scrivener to work for this, too. But, it has some shortcomings when used (or abused, as I'm sure some will say) for this. Let me explain: I'm an Evernote user. I use it as a digital second brain, and I also use it to collect ideas (including ...

Re: Wish: Add option to specify color of selected Binder entry

I wholeheartedly agree with the need for this. Half the time I can't even find the entry when I use "Reveal Binder". And using label colors is out of the question since they just add visual noise that I have to sift through to find my current item. My idea: I think some sort of contrast (i...
