Yes I use scrivener for very big projects too. What I meant by many was it supports many types, pictures tables spreadsheets etc as he uses OLE. Better practice is to have multi documents tabs, can link to reach other anyway.

Whiz is good for outlining and writing quick articles, then RTF export all our shaved topics & exit whiz. Then quickly convert RTF to markdown, takes a few seconds. Then depending on use, drop into one of my many site/wiki generators, which also takes only seconds with modern generators to update and generate the whole site and it’s live.

If I use OLE attachment types or links, it’s usually for reference while writing, not part of output. So no problems.
