can't import many dimmed items

Hi Again,

Thanks for your pdf tip from yesterday-- indeed, the tutorial image was wildly overscaled and just needed reduction. But I’m still having troubles right off of the bat, trying to import my own files into Scrivener. Many of the supported file types, like pdfs etc. are showing up in the import window as dimmed items that I’m unable to select.

Any suggestions? And again, thanks for fielding these (perhaps screamingly obvious) questions…

Are you trying to import them into the Draft, by any chance?

Non-text files can only be imported into the Research folder (or, I believe, any other top-level folder you create yourself in the Binder). The Draft folder will only accept text files.
