Is it possible to import multiple pictures in one move? When going to the photo library I can only select one picture unless I am missing something.
And when going into my photos app I can not send from there to scrivener. Am I missing something or is this not possible?

Kind regards, and Thanks for a brilliant app.

You can easily drag and drop a set of images from Finder into your project. Just select the images in Finder and drop them onto binder at the desired place.

Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. Apple's document picker (for selecting images from photos) only allows a single image to be imported at a time. And the share sheet in Photos requires an app extension, and the way Apple has created extensions is that they cannot know anything about the original app and have to send the data to the app without the app being open or knowing about it, which is rather tricky for Scrivener projects.

All the best,
Keith

Hi Keith,

thanks for clarification!
I have a wish list and some feature requests here and there, but it's a beautiful app that has already made my life a LOT easier, and changed my working habits.

Have to say, it's always intriguing to learn a bit about the pathways you have to tread, Keith. All the more respectable to see what a great construction you've made in the Scrivener iOS result, as you know, rather largely appreciated...

Best,
Clive
