How to See Synopses

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 18:06:58 GMT

I'd like to see the synopses for the scenes when I'm looking at the timeline. From the help, it seems it's possible, but I have been searching for how to do it without any luck. How do I set that up? Thanks, Al

I assume you're talking about syncing a project with Scrivener. If so, under Project Sync settings, set "Summary" to "Synopsis". You'll then see the summary/synopsis data in the inspector.

Thanks. Yes, I'm syncing with Scrivener, (Timeline V 2.2.6. Scriv 1.9.7) but here's my Project Sync Settings dialog box: [Sync2](// and I don't see any reference to Summary.

Hi, You need to choose "Synopsis" from the dropdown next to the item that you want to sync to. For example, if you want to sync the "Notes" field in Aeon Timeline to the "Synopsis" field in Scrivener, then you would choose this from the dropdown. If the property that you want to sync to doesn't exist yet, you need to create it first. In Timeline Settings (the cog icon), create a new property of the type "Multi-line Text" (this is the only type that Synopsis will sync to) Then it will appear in the Project Sync Settings dialog and you can choose to sync "Synopsis" with it.

Thanks, that did it. I created a new multi-line property called, Synopsis.
