'Point to' file, rather than import or add

Is it not possible add files (pointers) without actually moving/copying the files. I have hundreds of discrete docs that i need to include as references and was hoping to use Scrivener as a manager for this?

many thanks for any advice

I don’t know about the current version, but the beta of version 3 has File->Import->Research Files as Shortcuts, which does what you’re after.

many thanks
