A simpler solution is just that Scrivener falls back to document view when a scrivenings couldn’t be made while keeping Scrivenings mode enabled when navigating back to text items. Thoughts?

Hmm, in thinking about it, that might push the problem around rather than solve it. What if what you really want here is to view the images in the container as a corkboard or outline? I presume that’s your normal desire anyway, and that you have Treat all documents with subdocuments as folders enabled—because the PDF here isn’t a folder; with that setting off you would get the behaviour you want in this isolated case. So the point of preference is displaced, now we have dissatisfaction with what gets chosen as a fallback rather than there being no fallback and making you take that choice up front yourself.

This is a global switch right, I can’t set this per binder item? I switch back and forth between my manuscript and figures often (not all my figures go into the manuscript, I have several variants, some or just instructional while writing etc.)
The logic I propose is to fallback to single document view ONLY for scrivenings mode that cannot “scriven”, but not affect corkboard or outliner.
