I’m a PhD student and love Scrivener. I often end up creating two versions of a file: one for a presentation (the text that I refer to in a conference or other presentation) and one for the longer, technical journal submission. After the presentation, I end up putting both files up next to each other, BUT it’s sometimes hard to remember “change on the left, ignore the right.” In the past when using Word, I would simply lock the file in the finder, and then I couldn’t make any changes to it. But with Scrivener, when I lock the file in the Finder, I can still make changes (kinda) but then the file crashes, and when I reload it, I get an error message about Scrivener not working with locked files.
So is there some internal way to lock a file? Prevent changes to one and not the other?
Edit: I see I asked this differently here- https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/text-pane-background-color/37108/2
