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?

: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?

Re: Outline-mode editor functionality

Ioa, :arrow: Re header lock button. Thanks; with my keyboard focus I'd not used that menu button yet. (Though I probably clicked on it early without much sense as to how I would use Scrivener.) Of course, this thought was for those rare times my hand was 'inadvertently' on the mouse -- inexplicably ...

Re: Strange text expansion bug

As a Windows user, I can't say how similar its string expansions and spelling 'corrections' are to those of the Mac and iOS versions of Scrivener. That said: There are indeed some strange (for my purposes and expectations) Windows version assumptions. One could (as I have) teach 'Scrivener', 'Learn ...

Re: Outline-mode editor functionality

:arrow: It would be nice to have a button on the editor headers to lock the space.

I recognize the irony of my even thinking about using the mouse! :roll:

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

Relatedly: :arrow: It would be nice to be able to sort Search Results (without disturbing the actual locations of the found items), in my case in order to find duplicate (at least in name) documents. (The sort-results displayed either in the Results list itself or in a selected-finds outliner editor...

Right-hand Editor default summary display

Selecting multiple documents to be summary-displayed in the right-hand editor, then keying Ctrl-Alt-Enter, I always get Cards—I always have to (re)set the display to Outline (Ctrl-3), which necessarily entails getting Scrivener's focus to that editor. ‘Always’ means that even when I have earlier set...

Re: Default input highlighting? How do I stop it.

Is there a way to remove the ruler's right-side margin (or at least, expand it to, say, 10 inches or open-ended)?

On this, still in my early stage of file importation, I'd like to have the input notes/files formatted full-editor width rather 'page'.

Re: Collection colors in the Binder sidebar

Given that I have many Collections and use specific colors to indicate the general nature of each of these 'concept bins' * in relation to the other ...

Wishlist Candidates + 1: Ctrl-f FIND (keystrokes)

:arrow: It would be of use that when the Ctrl-f FIND routine has gotten to the end of the document, when it asks to continue its finding from the top of the document, that the FIND dialog box could be dismissed with a simple Esc -- as is the case for the recycle question box immediately before it --...

Wishlist Candidates: Project Search results

:arrow: It would be of use to be able to remove individual search hits from the Project Search results list directly as one goes through it initially (eg, key-combo + left arrow). I understand that I can save the results as a collection and remove individuals from that, but I'm thinking here of savi...

2 Wishlist Candidates re Outline's manipulation

:arrow: I know this is pie-in-the-sky!

Same-document reference(s) in multiple Collections

As I understand it, I can only move a selection of (one to all of) a Collection’s referenced items. If so, this may be a problem for me when I convert a Collection to a pre-draft document set for further development. (For me, Collections are stacks of ideas as demonstrated by particular texts, not o...

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

I have the Binder set to open things in the left-editor, which editor opens to the right editor. I do a Project Search, which yields EG three items found. I click on a found item in the search results list, which opens the item in the left editor, or key Ctrl + Alt + Enter, which opens the document ...
