So I’m doing a rather large research project and I was getting into one of the parts where I was hoping Scrivener could give me some assistance. I’m trying to find, for example, all the places in the project where a word is… could be a name, a character, or a place, but the only thing I seem to find is the standard “CTRL + F” feature, and the project and text statistics don’t seem to give me any leverage here. Is what I’m trying to do not actually feasible?
I’ll assume you’re on Windows Scrivener v1.9.16.
I think what you’re looking for is the Project Search feature.
For a brief overview of Project Search, see Step 12: Project Search in the interactive tutorial (Help > Interactive tutorial)…
For a detailed explanation, see the manual, section 20.1.2 Project Search (Help > Scrivener Manual).
After you’ve played with it a bit, let me know if you have any specific Project Search usage questions.
