Embedding unsupported docs and their exported images

A common usage of embedding would be to add another unsupported document that is editable by another application.

Usually you open the unsupported document, make some changes and (re)export to an image.

You want to include the image in your Scrivener project as an linked image, so you do not have to reinsert it each time you update it.

How to achieve this in Scrivener?.. preferably by embedding all files into the project, if possible.

You can already embed any type of file in a Scrivener project (ensure “Import supported file types only” is unticked in the “Import & Export” preferences) and then use the “Open in External” editor feature to open it and edit externally. Or do you mean something different? The latest beta ( https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/scrivener-2-x-update-betas-download-here/11262/1 ) also has a File > Import > Research Files as Aliases feature if you don’t want the files to become part of the actual project.

Hope that helps.

All the best,

Keith you are so cool! I will install the beta.

That’s not something I get called often, even though I keep trying to impress it upon my kids. :slight_smile:
