Re: Scrivener should become subscription

But suppose this simpler version had iCloud support and could sync as seamlessly as other iCloud apps Chiming in, I'm the exact opposite. I really dislike iCloud (or other) syncing for writing projects. Not for the data security aspect in relation to hacking, but just the friction and possibility f...

Do you notice this in terms of impact on your system? I've never done proper cloud backups and have always wondered.

Re: "Bookmarks" should be renamed "Resources"

Katherine, lunk, I'm afraid that just because you don't see the need for tagging specific words or sentences, it doesn't mean it's not a genuine requirement by some. It doesn't go all the way that the original requester has suggested (like being sortable, for instance), but one thing I'd like to se...

Re: "Bookmarks" should be renamed "Resources"

Of course it would also be nice to have an actual bookmark facility within scrivener. One that shows a list of the places within the book that the author has placed marks for easy navigation. The Bookmarks naming carries over from web browser use, From the manual:" No doubt you’ve encountered ...

Clarifying how wiki and dragged links work regarding backlinks

Just wanting to make sure I haven't missed something. If I drag DOCUMENT RED from the binder into the editor of DOCUMENT BLUE, or if I make a wiki link FROM DOCUMENT BLUE to DOCUMENT RED using the double bracket method, I will get a hyperlink in the DOCUMENT BLUE'S text, but the linked document won'...

Re: Is there a keyboard shortcut to move to the first/last item in a group in the binder?

Yeah, I'd figured out the hoisting bit, and I think that's what Amber is referring to as the other method to my workaround. As I said, no big deal at all, one keystroke more is pretty painless. Just the completist in me wanting to check!

Re: Is there a keyboard shortcut to move to the first/last item in a group in the binder?

Sorry, I didn't explain myself well enough. I should have said "within nested groups" in the binder. As in like this:

nested.png (13.93 KiB) Viewed 227 times


I don't think there's a way of jumping to the top or bottom of a nested group rather than the top or bottom of the entire binder, is there?

Group names in multiple selection corkboard columns/rows?

I've recently started to use multiple selection corkboard views a lot. I'd like to request an option that the names of the constituent groups in the view are displayed in situ, where the arrows are in this pic (obviously there'd need to be some space made): groupnames.png I know of (and use) the nav...

Is there a keyboard shortcut to move to the first/last item in a group in the binder?

I don't think there is, but I just wanted to check. I've got a workaround which is to use ⌃⌥↑ and ⌃⌥↓ to go up/down to the group and then or depending on what I want to end up on, but was wondering if there is a one-step for this. No big deal if there isn't.

Re: Is there any keyboard shortcut that prevents clicking in the binder affecting the editor? (Plus another question).

Yup -- that's a fallback option -- was more wondering if there was a way to do it with some sort of opt/cmd/ctr/shift combo that would be a transitory override rather than a turn-on-then-turn-off manoeuvre.

Might suggest it for the wish list.

[Using v3]. Or splits if you're working with them. In my current project, I quite often want to open a doc as a Quick Reference, but I don't want it to load it into the split when I right click in the binder. Effectively, I'm looking for a way to temporarily set it to Binder Selection Affects > None...

@Endlessloop for including your timezone information, because that allowed me to do a little more digging. I look forward to a fix!

Make CSV data two-way with Outliner?

I really like that you can export the Outliner contents as a CSV file. What I'd really like is a way to import a CSV to the Outliner and have it populate its fields. I understand that this might be complex due to exception handling for missing or badly formed titles and/or cell entries, but I think ...
