Scr 1.9 - Is there a way to Search by Modified/Created Date?

Do someone knows if there is a way to search by Modified/Created Date in Scrivener 1.9?

If there isn’t, is there a way to sort documents by Modified/Created Date meta-data fields?



No, unfortunately you can’t do either of those things in v1.9.

I seem to recall seeing that in the beta you can search for meta-data dates using RegEx, but I can’t find a note about that anywhere now. And we can’t yet sort by date in the beta Outliner, although hopefully that is coming some day.

But no, neither of these things are possible in 1.9, at least as far as I know. :frowning: At least not in Scriv. Of course, you can always export to CSV and do it in Excel.


I suppose a don’t-try-this-unless-you-know-what-you’re-doing hack would be to go into the {ProjectName}.scriv\Files\Docs folder, search or sort by date modified, check the files corresponding to the date(s) you’re interested in, start Scrivener (you’ve had Scrivener closed all this time, right?), and find those documents. A long, winding, time-consuming, and potentially risky kludge, though.

Out of curiosity, why are you needing to do this?
