I have a particular workflow designed around a complex tool i wrote for my phd. In particular, it writes a series of images, which i often refresh, to well known locations on disk. When using Word or Lyx, I insert references to the images, allowing the wordprocessor to pick up changes made externally on the fly. If I had to do this manually, it would be impractical, as I often have 300+ images in a document that I refresh in a single step using my phd tool.
Is this possible to embed external images into Scrivener documents in this way? If I embed an image from a file into scrivener, it copies that image into it’s folder with a name like “9.jpg” etc which disconnects it from the source image. I’ve also looked into “document references” which don’t seem to do what I want.
