Thanks for that...I'll certainly check that out! But what about using Labels to form headers in the Scrivner project before using Compile? After all, it'll still be a working document with lots of sources and Keywords (topics), so I'd love to maintain some order while I'm still working on it...

Thank you for your helpful suggestion!

Not that I know of. There's a placeholder <$label>, but like all placeholders, it doesn't get resolved until compile.

OTOH, if you are editing a document (just click inside its text), its label is always displayed, with colour, at the bottom of the inspector.

So you know where I'm coming from:
  • I'm a user, not an L&L employee.
  • Mac Scrivener 3.1.2, MacBook Air 11, MacOS 10.14.5 (Mojave)
  • IOS Scrivener 1.1.5; iPhone 8 Plus, iPad 6th gen, iOS 12.3.1

It's also possible to show the Label color in the Binder.

Thanks so much for your helpful suggestions!

So, I thought it might be better to use Keywords for topical subjects and Labels for sources, both because there are many more topical subjects than sources -- and it seemed like it would be better to keep these things in separate taxonomies (or tools). However, I'm certainly open to going in a different direction. Does my approach seem best -- or is there another, better way of organizing sources v. topical subjects ?

Thanks again for all of your generous help!

Hi,

How would set up this kind of Keyword organized compile for Scrivner 2.0?

Thanks!
