import research files as aliases


In Scrivener 2.4.1 for Mac, which I love even though I don’t use most of it, I cannot get the “import files as aliases” to work. Its greyed out.

What am I doing wrong.


Are you trying to import research data into the Draft by accident? That is one of the few case where this menu command is disabled. If you need to import text as parts of your manuscript, you need to fully bring that into the software. It doesn’t let you delegate components of the core WIP to external files.
