Is there a way to create a collection of items not in a collection? This is a search that can be done on MacOS, can Scrivener do it?

The "Invert Results" search option may be helpful here.

Applied to one search collection, it's easy. Simply invert the search used to create the collection.

Applied across the whole project, it's a little more difficult. Apply some form of metadata to all items that are already in a collection, search on that metadata, and invert.
