First of all let me say how wonderful Scrivener is. I’ve just published a book using it (amazon.co.uk/Public-Manageme … 632&sr=8-1). However, there’s a few things that I still don’t entirely get about it that would help my workflow.
I’m an academic who, like many other academics, uses a lot of pdfs. When I start a new writing project I drag them in an a research folder within it. Now, I normally attach lots of notes to pdfs using the document notes feature in inspector. What would be really good is to be able to collate all of the notes I’ve added to individual pdfs into a note file within the same project. I guess it’s possible to do this by exporting a draft with just the notes in it (is that possible?) and then bringing it back in again, but I’m wondering if there’s an easy workaround on this. I don’t really want to treat all notes as project notes because it’s useful to have them attached to individual pdfs (which I can then drag into new projects with the notes intact).
What do you reckon? Does anyone know of a straightforward way to do this?
