I’m a freelance writer providing both very short content for clients as well as much longer ‘feature’ articles.
I record work on an external spreadsheet and this works good for the short articles. The longer ‘feature’ pieces, I first create a short cut and then send it to desktop.
This allows me to easily access longer files which have rolled off the ‘recent projects’ list inside Scrivener. At least it used to.
Last week I had a glitch in Scrivener and L&L tech support said to uninstall, redownload and re-install. I did. Now, when I try my shortcut-to-desktop trick, I get this when I try to open the file.
