Copy document by drag and drop?


I remeber having read some where, that it is possible to copy (duplicate) a document by dragging it with some mouse-keyboard-combination. Anyone who knows about this? Thanks.

I don’t think that capability exists in the stable version for Windows. In the beta there is a setting you have to enable, temporarily located in the Behaviors: Navigation pane, with Alt-dragging creates duplicates. Once preferences are organised, this will be in the Behaviors: Dragging & Dropping tab.

Bracker, I am pretty sure that in Windows 1.9 one can drag and drop copy documents from one Scrivener project to another project, so perhaps that’s what you are thinking of.


AmberV, I am using the Beta, so that was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a lot :slight_smile:
