Full Screen & Notes

I apologize if this has been covered. :blush:

I love working in full screen - I also have a lot of notes embedded in my text. When I click on a note I cannot get back to full screen easily and quickly. Is there any trick/shortcut to switching back and forth? Or must I exit full screen mode to get back to my main page?

Thanks & I hope all is well!

Cheers, ~katz

Hi, what do you mean by notes “embedded in the text”? Scrivener only supports annotations inside the text itself, so presumably mean document notes, which you view in the inspector?
All the best,

well, I started using these neat little hyperlinked notes in my text via Text > Scrivener Link; and found them a handy way to keep my notes nearby but out of the way. Can I view those via the inspector?

Oh, I see what you mean. Scrivener links link to other documents, so no, you can’t open them in the inspector - clicking on them will just open the linked document in full screen mode. You can just use cmd-[ to navigate back to the original document, though. And you have given me an idea for 2.0…
All the best,

How very enticing of you…

One of these days, someone needs to get around to compiling all the little 2.0 tiddily-bits you’ve been dropping around the forums to see if we can tease out what else we’ll be getting besides the Compile Draft overhaul and the menu clean-ups.


Ha, all I can say is: lots!

Perfect, Keith. Thank so much! :smiley:

I can’t wait! Cause Scrivener is so good right now I can hardly bear it!!! :smiley:

Hurry up…we’re waiting. :unamused:

This may be OT here, but since the thread is about notekeeping…

I just coughed up $79 for Nisus Writer Pro 3 (after recommendations in a Software by Other Folks thread in this forum: https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/mellel-vs-nisus-question/6005/1). I’m going to finally throw out Word, using NWP as the main complement to Scrivener, and I have to say that I like it intuitively.

One of the reasons is its implementation of Comments (rather similar to JNW, in fact, but better). Especially that you can hide all comments with a keyboard shortcut and call them up as easily.

Praeterea censeo Carthaginem esse delendam… hint, hint!



I agree - that is a REALLY nice feature. 8)
