Re: Identifying child documents (items) as such

thanks brookter, Yes, these would sometimes help: But Reveal in Binder works only if I have the Binder displayed (which I mostly do), but even then, only when I'm not working with a Project Search hit list (which conversely, I often am); View ... Container does not work in a binder view of a Collect...

Re: 2 questions: Actual S. file names; PDF indexing

Thanks Lunk. Yup, in some ways, we over here do have fewer options. And thanks Devin. I could use OneNote to organize and search the many PDF articles I have, but I'd rather search my PDFs (their content) at the same time I search Scrivener's RTF files, without always duplicating searches or decidin...

Re: Show items of tree in Binder with dots / llines?

MS-DOS ... Ah, 8) I remember FORTRAN, even Assembler. But even these ran/run subroutines -- toolkits by another name -- that programmers did not have to worry about. Except if we were picky about knowing precisely what that routine could handle as input and 'felt like' doing with it ... and what it ...

Re: 2 questions: Actual S. file names; PDF indexing

:arrow: Would there be much of a quickening of the 'word' indexing speed or of its being searched were I to convert the content of the many PDF documents I have in my projects to plain text? "A simple test in a blank project with one PDF and a project search should confirm that. ..." Thank...

Re: 2 questions: Actual S. file names; PDF indexing

:arrow: From within Scrivener, is there a way to see Scrivener's number 'name' for a document? "No, it is not possible to see Scrivener's internal file name for a document from within Scrivener. Nor is it recommended to use that name to access the document from any other tool. The only supporte...

Re: 2 questions: Actual S. file names; PDF indexing

Reading today about the differences between the Mac and Windows Scriveners, my having complete plain text extracts of the PDFs in my project instead of the PDF docs/files themselves might serve a purpose more than merely speeding up possibly the indexing * and probably the project backups: It would ...

Wishlist: Click-Drag awareness

I have things set: Binder (selected item opens in the left Editor); Left Editor (selected item opens in the right Editor). I have the left Editor locked, in outline, showing among others, folder 1; I have the right Editor unlocked, in outline, showing folder 2 etc.. (Throughout, the relative levels ...

Editor header highlighting

:? This behavior has both its use and distraction: I’m just not sure if it is intended. Ctrl-Tabbing from my right-hand editor window, that window does not lose its header bar highlighting until I pass through the Binder and land in the left editor. (The Binder/Collections’ focus could be more obvio...

Identifying child documents (items) as such

:arrow: Looking at, working in, an item that is a child item, is there a way to see that it is in fact a child, some clue in the Scrivener app window that tells me the item's container, document or folder? Or better, shows me the parent's name? (And better still--the item's siblings!??!?! I have ena...

Re: Menu > sub-menu > choice Navigation

Thanks. I understand: Alt- (eg) -V > G etc. But what I was trying to say was that I'd rather not up/down with the arrows 10+ times every time I want to get for instance to one of my ~ 10 favorites. Or similarly to one of my folders. And I'd rather not take my hands off the keyboard when a 3-tap migh...

Re: Locked Inspector doesn't navigate consistently with its editor

Salutations ... and thanks, Jerome. For me, now, I still often have to go through multiple verifications/steps to ensure that the Inspector I'm looking at is the Inspector I want. I have noticed other inconsistencies with how the right-hand Editor works; thought this might be another. I haven't expe...

Menu > sub-menu > choice Navigation

:arrow: It would be nice were menu items more quickly keyboard-accessible. My thought here was triggered by the many times that the choices I want do not have an action key assigned.

(The usual ‘encounter’ with this for me is View > Go To > Favorites … and the other choices shown.)

Re: Easy way to go back to last edit position

:arrow: I do use the editors’ history (and back again) navigation many times a day, from one document to another (or to an outline even): Making it operative for my mouse’s back/forward buttons would make it even more effective. (I know: I'm asking for mouse functionality -- again!) I suspect that t...

Re: Collection colors et al. with the Binder space

Somewhat along the same lines, the back and forth of using the Binder and Collections: :arrow: It would be of use to have some indicator on the most recently used (non-search) Collection when I move to the Binder; just an asterisk on the tab or something similar.

Re: Project Search limitations (eg, identifying location of several hit items)

I would find it of use were there a RC context menu choice that would allow me to 'find throughout’ the project all the items with the same name as the selected item in the Binder or outlining/card Editor....
