Syncing the Scrivener Notes field and the text content of a Scrivener document

Hello, From fiddling around with sync for a while, I get the impression that the actual text content of a document and also the document's Notes field are inaccessible to Aeon Timeline. Am I right about this? Thanks!

Hi, You are right, at the moment you can't sync data from/to the text content or Notes field of the document in Scrivener. We potentially could provide access to these areas, however they are rich text and therefore would take a large amount of work to provide syncing with this type of data, and we thought that most users would not want to sync or change the actual text of their documents through Aeon Timeline. However we are always looking at improving the syncing functionality, so let us know if this is something you are looking for. Jess

Thanks for the reply. This is more a case of my initial expectations being misguided. I can also see some advantages to the actual text of a document being sacrosanct. So, at least at this stage, this should not be seen as a feature request!
