Re: Dragging and dropping a PDF shortcut into another open project corrupts it

Thanks, this has been filed. Until this is fixed, the only way I can see around it is to import the file afresh in the other project using the Import > Research File as Shortcut... command. What's happening now is that Scrivener is copying over the shortcut file but treating it as a regular file of...

Re: Adding a folder as bookmark does not list its contained documents

Yeah, this is a feature we have on the list that just hasn't been implemented yet. Unfortunately there's not really a workaround for it now; adding the folder to bookmarks more or less treats it as a single document, so to see its contents you'd need to open it in one of the main editors and go fro...

Thank you! But, please make the default setting propagate to each and every new project and not just be project specific. Thanks.

Re: [NB] How to create a shortcut to another document in the Binder?

FYI, L&L responded to the bug report above. Not a bug. By design, the automatically created back-link is not automatically deleted if the original Doc Bookmark is deleted. But they did move it to the Wish List as a possible new feature. By the way, in case you didn't catch it in the manual, you...

[LH2467] How to assign custom list and checkbox metadata to multiple files at once?

How can I assign custom list and checkbox metadata values across multiple files at once, much like labels or status metadata? This feature seems to be missing. Thanks.

Re: How to create a shortcut to another document in the Binder?

Perfect! :) As described in the manual, now I see the back-link bookmark to the Suspects folder in the target Character Sketch's document bookmarks. But, if I remove the original document bookmark (the sketch added to the folder), the back-link document bookmark in the sketch document is not automat...

Re: Adding a folder as bookmark does not list its contained documents

Thanks. But, to clarify, on the Mac, Scrivener shows a chevron next to a folder bookmark in the inspector. I mean a whole folder is added as a bookmark for a document. Right clicking the folder bookmark and choosing Open in current Editor does indeed open the folder's corkboard view. But, it would b...

Re: How to create a shortcut to another document in the Binder?

Question. Later on, if I forget, how am I supposed to know that there is a document bookmark on the Suspects folder? It's unlikely that I would explicitly select the folder in the binder.

Re: How to create a shortcut to another document in the Binder?

Thanks for this. I forgot that, in Scrivener, folders are actually text documents. I was able to add the character sketch document as a bookmark to the folder. I think I'll just use this method. Thanks.

Re: How to consolidate all open Scrivener projects?

How do I merge all open projects in to one Scrivener instance with running tabs at the top for each project? I don't see the Window > Merge all windows option that is included in the Mac version of Scrivener 3. Thanks. FWIW, the Mac opens projects in one window as tabs. Windows opens projects as ne...

Re: Adding a folder as bookmark does not list its contained documents

Adding a folder to the document or project bookmarks does not show the chevron to its right in order to list the contained documents as a drop down menu. How can I enable that? BTW, in the Mac version, it does add the chevron. Question, are you using a theme other than the default? If so, then that...
