I’m trying to figure out how to correctly import and link to files. I’ve got 2 different use cases:
I want to link to a file on disk from one of my text pages in Scrivener. It will be a PowerPoint file, and when I click on the link, I want it to open in PowerPoint but always use the external file on disk (in case it’s updated).
I want to import a file directly inside my Scrivener project, so that no matter what happens outside of the Scrivener (if the original is deleted or moved), I have the internal copy, and I want to refer to it inside several different pages in my text.
My problem is figuring out how to get local copies (where/how to drag them into my outline structure) vs. links, and how to embed links in my text such that clicking on them opens them in the appropriate software.
Thank you in advance for any guidance!
