The way I work is to outline first, then write second and iterate from then on, sometimes chaotically.
What I would love to do may be available, although I could not find instructions on how to do it in the manual.
What I would like to do is copy a Binder Outline entry and then paste ITS LINK into the Document.
What that means, is, the paste command does not paste the copied text. The paste command installs an invisible link in the document that points to the “copied text”. The link is not seen. The copied text appears to be there in the document but in fact is a reference to text elsewhere.
That way, if i modify the Binder outline entry, the document entry changes. It would be nice if the process were symmetrical; if I change the link in the document, the Binder outline entry will change.
MS word calls the first part of the above paragraph a “special paste” or something like that. I use that feature extensively. I don’t think MS word can do the latter part of the above paragraph
Is the feature available? If not, is the feature being considered for a future edition of Scrivener? Maybe people who write extensively find they do not need this possible feature as their outline is succinct.
I look forward to hearing if other people would find this feature helpful, and if not, then please share how they cope with making changes in both outline and document
