Highland How-To: The Bin and The Scratchpad
Highland 2 offers several different tools for editing, but two of its sidebars do a lot of heavy lifting.
The Scratchpad is a blank space, like an extra sheet of paper on the side of your primary document.
You can use the Scratchpad to test out variations on a line you’re rewriting at that moment, or put a note in there to refer back to frequently, like a sticky note or list pinned to a cork board.
The Bin saves separate blocks of text. Just highlight what you want to cut out of your main document and drag it over (or use the ⌥ Option + ⌘ Command + X shortcut) to add it to a searchable list of clippings.
The Bin is great for dropping in scenes that need a new home somewhere else, or earlier versions of sections you might want to pull parts out of for something else later.
