First post! I used the demo for months–sipping slowly I guess-- and finally purchased it. Thanks for the great product.
Anyway, here’s a workflow suggestion. I make frequent use of the Quick Reference. But there’s just no easy way to switch the contents of the Quick Reference without leaving the manuscript page I’m on.
For example: I’m writing a novel and I’m on a specific manuscript page. The words are pouring out of my fingers and I don’t want to break stride. But I need to open up a character sheet from my Research area… or refer to my written outline. In order to get those to appear, I have to SWITCH away from my main manuscript page >> go to the item I want to launch>> press SPACEBAR >> and then switch back to my manuscript page and find where I was.
Is there an easier way to do this? Am I missing something?
Oh, and this assumes that
a) I don’t want to create a scrivener link in the text just to avoid the steps above
b) I don’t want to use split-screen mode because it just doesn’t appeal to me.
For what its worth, here’s a screenshot of my layout. It should give you an idea of what I want to do. How do I switch that Quick Reference without all those complicated steps?
