Currently the document types are:
I wish there was an Outline Document type.
As I write sections of my research-oriented book, I wish I could have an outline document type so I can play with topics WITHIN each scrivening/document.
For example, I have a section in the book that describes a group of medications, with one scrivening/document for each medication - a monograph for each medication.
The description of each medication has subsections:
- generic name
- trade name
- chemical description
- mechanisms of action
Using separate documents for each section would make the outline area of scrivening very unwieldly as well as separate sections which have much in common or would require separate documents for a section which has only a few words - such as the generic name section.
Thus, it would be nice to have an Outline Document type in addition to the Text and Folder type.
Many people like to tinker with the sections of their monographs, rearrange them, etc. while writing them. Many people may not know the final organization of their paragraphs until they see the big picture. An Outline Document would make writing so much easier.
Additionally, if an outline document can be transfered and coverted to the basis for the actual Scrivener outline, then writers don’t have to tinker with an external outliner. They can do it all in Scrivener.
