How to See ALL Comments at one time?

I would like to be able to see ALL comments in my project, doesn’t matter if it’s in the Inspector or somewhere else. I’m convinced the Mac version can do this but can’t find the solution.

To avoid any misunderstanding, I am now on a Mac but have been unable to update my profile, which labels me as a Windows customer…

Apologies if I missed it and am forcing repetition.


Assuming you are using inspector comments (rather than inline annotations), you can readily do that. The Comments area of the inspector shows the comments associated with whatever doc or docs are currently displayed in the editor view. So, you just need to have displayed all the docs you want to see the comments for in the editor view. There are different ways to do that:

  1. Scrivenings Mode (a group mode) is probably what you are looking for here. It will show in the editor a composite of every (revealed) sub-document of a folder (or container document) you select in the Binder.

  2. You can just select a span of docs in the Binder. Or select a scattershot of docs using cmd-click.

  3. You can do a search or use a saved collection to bring up some docs you want to see and then select them all.


P.S. If you do not know Scrivenings Mode. You want to know it. It is one of the completely awesome features of Scrivener, imho.

Thanks, GR. You’ve made me very happy.

You can change your platform tag by clicking on your user name at the top of the page, selecting “User Control Panel”, and then click on the “Profile” tab. The platform setting should be right on that page.
