I can’t compile (to enumerated outline, but that seems incidental info) the specific documents I want. Compile “Manuscript” + filter “All [Documents]” + exclusionary filter doesn’t seem to work for me.
The manuscript section in the binder looks like this
The “Unplaced” folder is marked “Include in compile” in the inspector, but nothing under it is marked for inclusion.
Q1: Is there a way to toggle “include in compile” for everything under a binder item (all children)?
Not knowing how to easily include more things I tried something else.
When I try to set up a compile the default option is “Manuscript” for the things to Compile, and I see in the dialog the list of items included/excluded for compilation: it includes only the items in Manuscript that are marked “include in compile”., which is perfectly reasonable and fits the UI choices made.
However, to get the selection I wanted in the absence of an answer to Q1 above, I elected to use the Filter method as shown below, choosing to compile not just “Manuscript” but “All” (documents) except those I exclude - and for this I put everything outside the manuscript into a “non-ms” collection
But as you can see “Excisions” is still not included. It is not marked “include in compile” but from my reading of this method it shouldn’t need to be.
I also tried compiling by selection in the binder - a small part like this
with this result
Q2: How can I easily compile a selection of documents regardless of the “include in compile” setting, which the “all documents” start point seems designed for facilitate?
Update 1 Q3 - maybe I should not expect the selection in the dialog to update with changing selections… would it actually do what I expect if I allowed it to proceed regardless of what it looks as thought it is going to compile?? Answer No. Just tried that too, “Unplaced” is there, but none of its children.
Update 2 Having noticed the include subdocuments for the selection, I tried that too… no luck (“folder” shown, but other documents still not selected)
