On Mac’s, Scrivener gets its information for project template placeholders from the Address Book. I’ve seen forum threads discussing where Scrivener should get this information on Windows systems. But I’m having a bit of trouble even on a Mac.
Because I work out of two offices, I do not have an entry for “work” in my Address Book. (Maybe this wouldn’t matter anyway.) Instead, I have entries for “home,” “city of office 1,” and “city of office 2.” (Names have been changed for privacy.)
When I use template place holders, Scrivener uses the information for my home. Even if I didn’t work out of two offices, I’d sometimes want Scrivener to use my work information and other times, my home information. In actuality, I’d like to select among the three locations: home, “city of office 1,” and “city of office 2.” Is there any way to accomplish this?
I realize one can do this all manually. But I like the idea of dynamically filling in the information. This way if one has, say, a dozen templates and then moves to a new office address, the templates will all be made correct and consistent just by updating the information in the Address Book. So does Scrivener provide a way to select among multiple addresses in the Address Book?
