After hours scratching my head about the new way AT3 deals with items, I finally realized that relationship items can only be synced to Scrivener as textfields when selecting “custom metadata”.
This is a regression compared to AT2. For instance, the Observer used to sync as a list. But now, it’s limited to a textfield. The risk here is about manual inputs in Scrivener. Making a typo in the content of that field in Scrivener would result in creating another entry in AT3 and lead to corrupt the database.
Regarding Participants and other multi entries type of items, Scrivener can’t handle this, so it’s fine to use a textfield for those. But for items that are meant to have only 1 entry from a list, I’d like to see this option coming back and sync it as a list in Scrivener.
I hope you’ll agree and reintroduce this option.
