How could one create a link / bookmark / cross-reference or something (in a document / folder) to a text phrase in the same document / folder or in another one?

Re: Text gets invisible

Yes, indeed, it looks fine, thank you for trying, sorry, it actually is not the Scrivening mode not working (as far as I know at least) but a folder / document that contains (I guess) at least one item. And that in connection with a setting as it just turned out (I turned off now, so the text got vi...

Re: "File" behaves like "Folder"?

Ah yes, that is it! Yes, absolutely forgot about it respectively wasn't aware of the consequences obviously, sorry.

When I just deactivated that option all open Scrivener projects crashed but now it works again. Great!

And even the invisible text is visible again.

Many thanks.

Re: "File" behaves like "Folder"?

What is the undesirable behavior you're seeing?

That a file (other than a folder does) shows the content of the items it contains.

Re: "File" behaves like "Folder"?

Oops, I always thought a folder shows the content of the items they contain and files don't. It really is and was not like that? So why are there folders and files at all if they differ in its icons only?

"File" behaves like "Folder"?

This item in the binder is a "File" / document but it seems to behave like a "Folder" as it shows the items it contains (dotted lines):

Why is it like this and how could I turn it into a document?

Re: Text gets invisible

If you have several individual Binder documents with 8-9 k words, or even 15-20 k words (!), why would you need scrivenings mode? Sounds like an extremely astonishing question. I would say, for most of the other items (not having "8-9 k words, or even 15-20 k words (!)"). And even if ther...

Re: Text gets invisible

Hello Jim, Many thanks for testing. And great you found the cause. I played around with it a bit, and apparently you've encountered some limitations in Scriv 1.9 Scrivenings mode. Limitations...well... It seems that when word counts in individual documents get into the 8k-9k range, 1.9 Scrivenings s...

Re: Text gets invisible

Hello Jim,

Yes, I will do so, thank you. I created a new project - without any of the original text / files / data of my project - and I could simply reproduce the issue. Very strange.

Re: Text gets invisible

Have you tried copying the text into a simple text editor? That sould strip out all rtf formatting.

Yes, I did. After copying the text back the same problem.

Are you using styles?

Not that I know of. Not by intention at least.
