99.9% of the time I use Scrivener in Scrivenings View with the whole project selected (it’s only text, no images, no tables, nothing). Now when I open Scrivener, I can sit there for quite some time watching it count down project pages until it finally reaches the end, moves the cursor to the page I was on when I switched off last time and allows me to start working.
This is very annoying. I know I could speed things up by working inside a single folder/chapter or even just a single document/scene, but it makes me cramp up when there’s nothing above or below the piece of text I’m working on and I can’t scroll around like I need it for my ususal workflow, it makes me feel locked in and detached from the rest of my text. I can’t work like this.
(I also wish I could use the binder for navigation only when using Scrivenings View, so that it doesn’t lock you into a single document just because you needed to look something up and didn’t feel like going the whole one hundred Menu > View > Go to… > Folder > Document yards or don’t like Redaction Mode)
Is there another way to make Scrivener not have to go through all the pages while creating the Scrivenings View of a longer document? This and the (for me) suboptimal binder functionality are the only thing standing between you and my 45$.
