How I sort my draft items in Scrivener right now:
After having written down those items (in the editor) I prioritize them by prefixing a number 1 to 4 and mark other items which will serve as footnotes.
The items with the same priority ( f ex “1”) are opened with Quick Reference and physically sorted on the desktop.
In order not to lose this sequence (and here I wonder if Scrivener can help) I take a screenshot of those Quick Reference items, AirDrop it to the iPad, and close all items on the desktop.
Like the one above (in 2.)
Then I open a new Scrivener project, to duplicate everything what was in Drafts, basically to leave the original as is.
In the duplicated (“double” - see url above 1.) project, I now change the prefix (see above) to a new, 2-digit one according to the sorting which I can observe from the iPad - screen dump.
(Such as: “08 To adopt the perspective of the evergreen Tradition.”)
Although this works alright for me I wonder if maybe I could cut some corners with the help of some advanced features which I haven’t discovered yet:
- sorting QuickRef items, and
remembering somehow the new sorting order, and
renaming them easier.
with best regards,
