I generally understand how to open various panels to see bookmarks (Project Notes), but how do I INSERT one? This has mystified me for years.
I need to somehow tell Scrivener that this exact location in a certain chapter is a place I want to be able to easily navigate right back to. Once the bookmark (aka Project Bookmark aka Project Note) is in there, I know how to find it again. But how do I INSERT it?
Every time I try to do this, a menu comes up that wants me to select some chapter from the list of everything in my manuscript. I don’t want to go the long way around—I’m already at the exact spot!
Can someone please tell me how to do this or if it is or is not possible? I have literally spent years trying to hunt this down. Thanks.
That’s a hack that would work, yes. But a program this sophisticated should have something that doesn’t require such a hack. Of all things, a writing program. People read books. People use physical bookmarks to keep the place where they’re at in the book.
If I have been paying for and using Scrivener for over ten years and this still hasn’t been implemented yet as an easy piece of UI, then it seems like an issue worth fighting for.
I have just finished over the weekend the first draft of the first novel in a series, 164,000 words. I have five more books to write. I need a bookmarks feature.
OK, great, I’m open to an alternative. But how do I get them to work globally?
If I have one chapter selected in the left-hand binder, I will only see that chapter’s comments in the right side Inspector. (Whereas the Bookmarks icon shows Project Bookmarks across the entire manuscript, albeit not navigating to specific locations.)
Of course they do. Select the chapter (or even the book or any items “above” the document containing comments) and all comments of all items show up and you can jump from there to the exact comment location.
