I am involved in a complex research program that is spinning off multiple writing projects: several journal articles and possibly a book. I find myself struggling to find ways to link these multiple projects. For example, the research in one Scrivener project file has relevance to other projects. I’ve tried creating several Paper folders in one project file, but that starts to confuse me. I’m thinking about having one project for research, and another for each piece of writing. How have other Scrivener users handled this issue?
p.s. I also vote for a more legible font here on the forums.
p.p. s. Scrivener 3 is excellent!
p.p.p.s. Merry xmas and season’s greetings
You can now link between projects in the same way you link between documents within a project, either as a bookmark or as a hyperlink. So you could have a main research project and several writing projects, which refer to that research without having to duplicate it.
The details are in Section 10.1.6 of the manual, but you’re essentially using the same techniques you would in one project expanded to work over multiple projects.
