Hi JT, On the basis of your post, I came back to look at it again to see if it might help me sort a plot problem. But I can't seem to work out the mechanics of getting the Storyplanner data into Scrivener.
I exported using the EXPORT TO SCRIVENER option, which produced a zipfile. Then I got stuck. Renaming to .scriv told me the zipfile had no binder. Simply importing it into an empty scrivener project didn't work.
I'm almost certainly just being dense, but how did you get it into scrivener?

Zip-files need to be de-zipped, unpacked.
Double-click the zip-file. That should result in a .scriv folder/package.
I am a user, writing non-fiction and science, using:
* Mac Scrivener 3 on a Macbook 12”, MacBook Pro 13”, and iMac 27”, running different OS.
* iOS Scrivener 1 on an iPhone 11 Pro, iPad Air 9.7”, and iPad Pro 12.9”, all running the latest iOS

Oh, it was simple. I should have thought of that. :oops:

Thanks!

Thank you for this discussion, it appears to be just what I need. I’m editing my third novel, researching my fourth, and have to create a new structure each time. This should help.
