Greetings all, this is my first post to L&L.
Introduction & Salutations: I’m a geek by profession, but I had been spending more and more time working on a novel, which I had been doing in M$ OneNote for a while, but the burdensome process involved therein pretty much killed that fire.
I just recently entered the Mac world (after a 10 year hiatus), and after searching for “OS X Storyboarding” in Google, I came upon Scrivener directly after getting my new Mac up and running. Suffice to say that the fire has been re-lit!
Keith, Amber: what a product, and what a great job you (and everyone on this forum) are doing to support it. Keep it up, please!
I’ve been trying to take advantage of all the ‘linking’ features of Scrivener (both for internal and external links), and I don’t have it quite mastered yet - and my geek sense is telling me that there’s probably a little more functionality to it than I’m picking up.
And now, onto the question(s) I had for any/all Scriveners:
I’ve tried searching this forum from a couple of probably bad angles, and I’m not coming up with as much as I’d think the 1000 plus forum folks have to have created… Is there a general FAQ entry (or elsewhere in the forums) that covers all one can do with Internal & External Links in Scrivener?
…Drilling down the question a little more granularly:
I’ve no problem linking to folders, texts, etc. from within a text, but I wonder if I can link to a specific place in another text? I.e., I see where I can make a word into a link within a text, but how can I point to that link after I’ve made it?
Second, what is the ‘cleanest’ way to pull a web page into a text? I’ve played with various copy/paste methods, mostly using Firefox. The result usually nets me just text, and requires moderate cleanup. Again, my geek sense is telling me that I’m probably not getting the most out of Scrivener here.
** I.e., Is there a way to pull data into a Scrivener text that preserves links / formatting / tables, etc?
** Also, being a Mac n00b, am I silly to be using Firefox for this? Is the Safari integration OS X much better optimized for what I’m trying to do?
…Many thanks in advance to all!
