Link file in Scrivener


I need to use a word template in scrivener.
I try to import it in Scrivener but the file is converted in .rtf file and lost all my setup.

Is it possible to insert a link to the file in order to open it with “external editor” ?

It’s not possible to do that. The template file needs to be opened in its native program in order to be edited. Scrivener’s native editor is not the Word engine, but a custom RTF engine, so it must convert. Meanwhile also don’t allow un-editable text files in the Binder to avoid confusion and reduce complexity. The program is primarily a text editor, not a document archive, so it should cater to the editing side when it comes down to a choice. Sorry that doesn’t quite work with what you are trying to do though.
