Help! How do I move the entire contents of my Research folder OUT of Scriv altogether and back into my regular computer files? I want to just have this stuff in an ordinary desktop folder instead because I have so much material in the Research folder that it’s now slowing the entire programme down (at least that’s what I think is causing this problem): Whenever I type, there is often a four or five second delay before anything appears on the screen - a particular hassle when I have to correct typo’s or change things. You can imagine how disruptive this is to the creative thought process to have to wait out these halts before being able to continue! And they happen more often than they don’t, a sort of mini-“freeze” of 4 or 5 seconds.
This doesn’t happen elsewhere on my computer (a MacBook laptop running OSX 10 . 6 . 8 and it only started recently with Scriv when I moved a bunch of stuff into it, so I think I’ve probably overloaded it. The entire project weighs in at about 870mb, and really I can keep the media stuff elsewhere on my computer because it’s only for reference. I work only in text.
I’ve tried everything I can think of but haven’t figured a way to “export” or copy or drag/drop the stuff in my Research folder to my Desktop and don’t want to just delete it, so how do I get it out of Scriv and back into my normal computer files? This is causing me serious hassle, and finally yesterday I just went back to working in a word-processor simply to get the typing to flow properly. What do I do? Thanks! Bonnie
