Actually, I have the Windows and Mac versions and I must be dense today because I can’t see a way to move a document from one project to another. I can move it to other folders, but can’t see a way to get it to another project. Still looking. Looking in help hasn’t helped.
Again, I’m trying to move a folder (or its documents) from one Scrivener project to another. When I’m in Project1, for example, I can’t see Project2 to be able to drag items there. Using the Move command allows me to move LEFT, but once I get to the “top” of the project, I can’t go further. I’m probably missing something obvious.
I don’t know how the Apple system works, as far as allowing you to have two open project screens at one time. In Windows, I can have one project on one side of the screen and another on the other. Then I can drag a folder or file from one project directly over to the other project window and drop it into the Binder.
OK, I’m using the Windows version as I type. In help, I finally found the “Splitting Projects Up” section and discovered I can open a second project and have both projects visible. I didn’t know I could do that. Dragging seems to make a copy (not move) so you have to remember to trash the items from the original folder. And “Save As” is interesting, but still leaves a lot of cleanup work. And you seem to have to manually rename the SCRIVX part or it keeps the original name.
OK, so bottom line, I can move folders/document to a different project but in a very round about way. To clearly state my request given all this new information . . . I am requesting the ability to have a Move to Another Project option added to the menus. The help document (“Splitting Projects Up” section) already explains the use case. What I want is a very direct, safe, and easy way to make it happen. Thanks for considering this.
p.s. Note to self: In the future, just cut and past man. Would have been WAY faster.
It’s a similar procedure on the Mac. It’s true that it’s a “copy” not a “move” and so you then have to delete the original in its original place in the original project - if you so wish - but I suspect that’s part of the design, as a safety factor. The entire procedure takes about 15 seconds (and is written up in the Manual in Section 25.1 in my copy).
