Seems, for some reason, the Outline mode hadn’t selected / referred to the 19 results.
So, for there it seems like a good way to proceed is to save the * search as a collection, then select that * collection when compiling and proceed from there, correct?

- First load your * keywords search collection into the sidebar.
- Click the binder header bar to load it into the outliner and sort by keywords.
- Select All from sorted outliner, and use the Documents ▸ Add to Collection ▸ New Collection menu command.
The neat thing here is that Scrivener uses the sorted selection to populate the new collection list. From there you can fine tune the sorting by hand and then compile that collection.
Going forward, you could manually keep this collection up to date with new documents, or regenerate it from scratch using the above checklist (only instead of creating a new collection in the third step, reuse the existing one). Which approach to take will depend on how much effort you put into fine tuning it.

If there is some confusion over the word “regenerate”, that is simply shorthand for redoing the three-point checklist at a future date.

As to whether you’d want to compile [the keyword search collection] directly, that’s up to whether you want the list sorted by keywords or not. Compile will just use the collection order, which for searches will always be the binder order.
So if you want a sorted collection to compile from… [checklist follows].

Meta-data like the Label are listed under “Document Variables”. These are codes that can be added to your Formatting compile option pane, for the type of document that would print these sections. The most useful way of doing that is in the “Section Layout…” button. For example you can put " (<$label>)" into the suffix field, to have it printed after the title itself (or even without a title, though in that case you might just want the label but itself). You can style the prefix/suffix fields separately, back in the Formatting mock editor:

Ok, I think I follow… So then how would you advise me to compile from there? Just got to Compile and just select Current Selection?
Finally, would you suggest a particular file format to make it easier to read and navigate the file? Thanks again!
