I house all of those in the Finder (media in iTunes, pdfs in a central folder called "Digital Editions"). That way I can alias them where I need them--DT Pro for warehousing, Scr. files for project development. The one thing I do tend to keep in Scr. that adds to size are web archives. I do a lot of Net research and it either goes to DT Pro (as my central info warehouse) and then to Scr. or straight to Scr.

I myself follow Keith's second suggestion--I associate pdfs or media files with a Scr. file via the References pane. I usually have one file with one reference or several related references, which allows me to split the view, transcribe audio/video files, make notes, whatever, on the material. You could, however, create one master file and have all your reference links there for easy access.

Thanks much! I did some playing around and found that rtf and pdf files work just as described in the header view and the Reference pane. And that Word docs are a real Pain. So I am on to more learning by trial. Let us know when you hand in that dissertation. hmmm....maybe you could video stream the defence. (Just joking! )

I do have one question for Alexandria, though. Have you considered transferring your journal writing to Scrivener, and, if so, what are your thoughts?
