Hi, as a relatively new user - can someone tell me why the Search tool will not highlight the words I am looking for in my Research docs - that is my not-Word docs - is there a way round this? Best, C
Blod, I’ve moved your post to the technical support board.
Could you please clarify what you mean by research documents and Word documents? Scrivener does not actually operate with Word documents (it imports them and turns them into a format it can use). If by “research” you mean PDF files (you can actually put all kinds of different files into the Research folder, even movies), then what you are seeing is normal. PDFs cannot be highlighted when searching. This also assumes you mean project search (as opposed to Cmd-F, which only selects, not highlights, one result at a time).
