I ve just downloaded the trial version. To start working I ve tried to paste the text of a Word-document of about 160.000 characters.
But the DRAFT folder can only show around 40.000 characters. That means: I cannot see the whole text in the DRAFT folder (which I understand must be possible).
As the text has been partialized in chapters, I cannot see the whole document - only chapters and a 4th in the DRAFT folder.
So my questions are:

  1. Why does the DRAFT folder not show the whole pasted text from Word?
  2. Where will it be possible to see the whole text in one stream?
    Thanks a lot in advance,

I’m not sure what’s going on here, but are you sure all of your text was pasted into Scrivener? Maybe your copy buffer wasn’t big enough?

Try dragging the Word document into the draft folder to see if the entire document is imported that way. FYI, it will copy, not move, you file’s contents into Scrivener, so you don’t have to worry about the original.

Just one question, rather than copying, have you tried the import and split function? That works a treat.
