I’ve been using Scrivener for a few years now and never had any issues or problems in using it. However I’ve now reached that point I have two questions that are completely separate from each other so I’m gonna try to address them as separately as possible.
- Is it possible to synchronise external resources with a folder? As in…I have a folder on my Dropbox where I have documents in (.md and .txt files). Those are character outlines, storyboards, ideas and anything that would really be interesting for the project. Now…I know that I can just drag that folder into the binder in Scrivener and it’ll show me those files. But I assume it copies the files into the Scrivener project. Because changes I make in those files (or if I delete one) won’t be carried over to the dropbox folder (or vice versa).
Is that even possible in Scrivener? I hope it is. I know I could sync the entire project with an external folder, I just saw the tutorial on that. But it’s really just tiny files (lots of them).
- Can I import different dictionaries? My native language is German and for a long time I haven’t used the dictionary/ thesaurus function in Scrivener. I just recently wrote some stuff in English and noticed how handy it was. But…for some reason dictionaries and thesaurus aren’t available for German words Is that something that’s bound by system settings? Because I DO get German spelling and grammar corrections. Is there something I’ll have to download to make that available? Or is just not possible for non-english languages?
Well…I hope you can help me out. Thanks in advance!
