Getting started with Scrivener + Aeon

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 10:48:33 GMT

I'm trying to get going with Scrivener and Aeon Timeline, but am having no joy. 1. Please do a video showing how to get these guys to work together. It's often easier to learn that way. 2. When dropping a set of Scriv files into AT, it puts them into alphabetical order, forcing me to reorder everything manually. 3. I cannot edit any of the event properties. When clicking the green expand arrow I cannot edit participant or location tags. How is this done? If these things are doable this would be a useful app for me.

2. I don't know what you mean by dropping Scriv files into AT. THe proper way to sync between the two is to use the Sync menu item and select your scriv project, then use the settings item to choose which items to sync. 3. You edit event properties in the Inspector. If it's not visible, click on the "i" in a circle on the top left of the AT screen. Hope this helps.

Hi, 1. We do have a video that introduces the concept of Scrivener syncing. It is available here: (the video called Scrivener and Ulysses Syncing). 2. When you say that you are dropping a set of Scrivener files into AT, it puts them into alphabetical order, do you mean when you are creating new Aeon Timeline events from your Scrivener documents? If you don't have any custom metadata in your documents that defines the start and end date, Aeon will just add events at the spot your timeline is currently open at, as it does not have any information about where you want to add it. This might explain why all your events are now in alphabetical order, because events at the same time on the timeline are displayed this way. Please let us know if I misunderstood what was happening with your syncing. 3. Craig is correct, you edit properties for the events in the Inspector. Jess
