can viewthe corkboard “above” the current one in the outline structure, forexample,
or if when working with a section of the draft in Scrivenings mode, you can broaden
the scope of your text editor to include the texts around it.

out-board research collection tool. Youcan nowstore any numberofnotes,andthese
