Collections and Outliner

Is it possible to create a Collection and view it in the Outliner? I’m using the Windows version. When I create a new Collection using a search and then click on either the Outliner or the Corkboard icon, my entire novel shows up, not just the selected tabs in the Collection.

I’m trying to come up with a workaround for Windows version shortcoming of not being able to sort by fields in the Outliner.

Anyone have any ideas?



Ctrl-A after clicking in the Collection pane will call up a Multiple Selection in the active editor, whether in Outline, Scrivenings or Corkboard view. So, yes, creating a collection and sorting it is a clever, backdoor way of sorting a multi-select outline.
