I am writing an instructional book and I need to create a glossary of terms. I want to link each occurrence of a given term to its glossary description (or at least a first mention of the word to its glossary description). I did a bit of research and went through the tutorial but couldn’t find a step-by-step solution. I am new to Scrivener - played with it for a few days. Thanks in advance for your answer!
Page 93 of the manual talks about using Scrivener links to create cross-references to other documents.
My interpretation of this is that you would
- create an end document called ‘Glossary’ where you would list and define the terms.
- find the first term in your project and create a link from it pointing to its relevant target in the Glossary - the default behaviour from this is that Scrivener will create a split view, one showing your source document (i.e. where you clicked the link), the other showing the link destination, i.e. in your Glossary document.
