Looooong time Scrivener user, test driving AS and loving it. (You’ve essentially got all the things I was using Scrivener to do – I had my own Unused Scenes and Research folders :p) without having to maneuver through features I didn’t have a need for.
One bit about AS I can’t quite suss, though: Project Notes vs Research Notes?
I’m noticing that when I add a note to the Research Column, when I’m finished typing/pasting the text in my only option seems to just close it (which then requires that I reclick the Research button on the Ribbon to show the list).
Is there any reason I shouldn’t only use the Research area for imported “reference materials” that I don’t intend to edit, while putting anything I might need to edit (such as running questions, to-do lists, or reminders) in the left-hand document area?
