Hi all, I’m quite new to Scrivener and maybe I’m missing something here, but I’d rather ask instead of reinventing the wheel.
I have several concepts I’d like to refer to within a particular project. Each of these concepts has a detailed explanation. Think of it as a dictionary. I’d like to be able to write something like this:
Where elit and auctor are concepts I’d like to refer to. Ideally, when on mouse-over for one of these words I’d like to see a tool-tip with its definition.
I tried storing each concept on its own document and using Scrivener links to refer to it. But there seems not to be a way of showing a tool-tip when using this approach. Or is it? Clicking on the link takes me to the definition, but I kind of loose context when doing that, particularly when working with a split editor.
If I use document footnotes or comments, I’d end up repeating the explanation on every document where the word is referred to, and if I later change the definition I’d have to replace all occurrences of that definition. Is this correct?
I suppose I could use project notes to store all concepts and definitions, but AFAIK it’s not possible to create a link to a segment of a project note (each segment being a concept). Or is it?
Any help on doing something like this or better yet, a more natural way to do it in Scrivener would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
