Re: Changing how different scenes are separated in scrivenings?

Unfortunately, not at this time on the Windows version. What you've seen on those tutorials is likely from the Mac version.

Re: Image Rotation

It is something about the Pixelmator file. If I load the Pixelmator file into Preview, it is properly oriented. I then rotated it 360 degrees and saved it. This file still was improperly rotated when used in Scrivener with the image tag. If you rotate an image 360 degrees is like if you did not rot...

Re: Edit / Past Special

Ah yes I see that Paste and Match Style is similar, but not exactly the same. It appears Scrivener copies the style of the test immediately before it. Hence you need to be more careful as you could introduce unwanted styles. I'm not following you, I guess. The Paste and Match Style command only pas...

It already exists! It's called Paste and Match Style, but the shortcut is the same (for Windows).

Hi, Ralf3, and welcome to the forum!

You may want to have a look at section 18.5 References of the manual. It does something similar to what you're looking for.

Re: Best Compile Setting for Ms with Text and Scanned Articles?

It seems that your scanned images are in PDF format. If that's the case, I'm afraid they cannot be compiled directly from within Scrivener. Scrivener will accept typed text (in standard RTF format), which in turn will accept images inserted as JPGs. So, I can think of two ways to make this work for ...

Re: Document search

What's the compile time replacement function, please? You may want to read section 24.18 Replacements of the manual for MacScriv. Here's an excerpt: Replacements are a way for you to set up your own substitutions, which work in a manner very similar to Search and Replace, though without changing th...

Re: Document search

If most of your editions are of a similar kind as those you mention you may want to try the compile time replacement function. It may well solve all of them automatically.

Just my 2 cents.

Re: Icon affects printing

The two level A files seem to be structured the same, leaving me puzzled as to why they have different icons. I still believe that they have different icons because, as MM said above, one of the folders ( Mending fences ) contains text, probably some white space or carriage return, which in turn is...

Re: text font size in footnotes

You may have inadvertently changed the footnotes zoom factor. Try going to the footnote area and click right to change to another value.

Re: Can I get a carriage return while editing the synopsis

When that option is enabled you may still type a Return on the Inspector's synopsis editor.

Re: Using the Mac version in a virtual machine on Windows

For example, if I compile from the Mac version, will I get a Windows-friendly file as output? In my experience, output files are O.S. independent. You'll end up with a PDF, mobi or epub file which will work OK on any intended platform. The Scrivener project file is also cross-platform, but some set...
