of pdfs and things

is there a setting to have scrivener automatically convert pdfs into text ? or must it always be done through the menu ?

thanks for 1.5 -

as always !

There is no automatic setting for that, I’m afraid - it must be done through the menu. Reason being that you lose a lot more formatting and detail when you convert PDF to text than you do when you convert HTML to text, so automating this could cause more loss for more files than the user expected.
All the best,
