Hi, I am using Scrivener alot and loving it, but there are a few issues/questions that i have. Could you please help?
- How can i make the “parent” documents also show all of the information in the “nested” documents when i click on the “parent” document? I’ve attached this screenshot to show what i see when i click on “video” document dropbox.com/s/p4djy3np08e1v … 3.png?dl=0
I want to see all of the text in the subdocuments when i click on the “video” document, but i currently only see text in thats directly in the video document (and none of the nested document text below it).
I know this is possible because i’ve done it before , but havent been able to remember how to fix it yet. How do i do it?
- Is there any way to open up another window displaying the current window in Scrivener? Or is there any way to change the default size that the quick reference windows open? If they could open larger automatically, then this would solve this issue that i’m having.
When i use an app like evernote or omnifocus, i can hit command+option N to open up the same window that i am looking at in a second window. This makes it easier to make changes and see another window to refer to. I know that i can open up a quick reference window, but those always open up small and there is no keyboard shortcut (that i know of) to just open up the current document as a quick reference window. I also remember there being a way to see another document text on the bottom of the main window, but i dont remember how to do that and it seems like a full window would be more helpful anyway (though I’d appreciate if you could let me know how to view this mode if there is no easy to way open up the current window in a new window)
2.b. Also, is there any way to open a quick reference window by clicking on it. When i use chrome, I can open links in a new window by shift+clicking on a link or open a new tab by cmd+clicking the click. Is anything like this possible in Scrivener?
- I’m starting to use Scrivener links often and am finding it difficult to search a specific document because its not searching text within the Scrivener links within that document. When i am searching on a certain document, is there any way to also search all of the text that is in the scrivener links on that document? I know that i can use the search bar in the top right to search the entire “manuscript”, which includes all the Scrivener links, but it doesnt seem that i can limit that to just searching the current document and the Scrivener inks within it. Does that make sense? Any way to do what i’m looking for?
