Re: compiling - sections, page breaks, styles

Hi, Out of interest, why don't you just use Heading(x) styles in Scrivener to avoid having to replace them in Word after you've exported? As for the bug, would it be possible for you to send us a sample project (zipped up) with instructions on how to reproduce it, so that we can take a look? (To mac...

Re: Why is Scrivener iOS 'smarter' about changes than Scrivener macOS?

There is no Dropbox app for iOS, so I had to write all of the Dropbox syncing code myself using the Dropbox API. (The API does nothing automatically: I have to have Scrivener look for changes or tell Dropbox about them, and then work out which files to download and upload all in my own code. On macO...

Re: I spent the most useful 99$ in a long time.

Educational licences *are* eligible for discounted update pricing, just the same as the regular version. Scrivener 2 users who purchased using the educational discount have been updating to Scrivener 3 at the $25 update price just the same as regular licence holders, and the same will be true in the...

Re: Compile to updated version of Word

Hi Colin, Thanks for the kind words. Regarding the fonts, this may simply be down to differences between Word fonts and other macOS fonts. Microsoft provides its own fonts for its Office suite which aren't available to other apps. So, for instance, the version of Times New Roman in Word is slightly ...

Re: API to enable plugins like Zotero

] Umm... last I checked, you are not a moderator. If you feel a thread needs to be reported, you may certainly do so. If you feel a topic has been done to death, you can also simply ignore it. Attacking someone who offers a serious suggestion on a topic of common interest is indeed out of line. Ple...

Re: Handwriting recognition

Hi, Unfortunately Apple currently does not provide any handwriting recognition frameworks, so the only way to support this is to licence third-party frameworks or find a free one, none of which I would have control over. I can't help feeling that it is only a matter of time before Apple creates such...

Re: Images look faded and have false colors

Having looked at the issue this is indeed a nasty bug that has been introduced by Apple into macOS 10.13.4. It seems that the standard way of taking an image and saving it as PNG data is now causing the colour profile to be lost and thus the image to be faded. I have reported the bug to Apple along ...

Re: "Page Break Before" sometimes adding blank pages

The first thing to check here is the "Always start section on" setting under Section Layouts > New Pages in Compile. If your chapters or parts are set to always start on a recto page, then a blank page may be inserted to ensure this. The page numbering shouldn't start on a blank page, thou...

Re: bewildered with choices

"When I get new software, the first thing I do is open the Preferences and go through it all carefully" That would work with most software but the Scrivener prefs. are a vast and overwhelming mess, IMHO, and are best approached on an as needed basis. A mess? That's a bit out of order. Ton...

Re: Scrivener 3.0 - Preserving chapter number on a partial compile?

Make sure "Treat compile group as complete manuscript" is not ticked under the "Compile" group selection menu button in the Compile pane.

All the best,

Re: Heading Titles not appearing on top of new page in PDF Preview while Compiling:

Under "Section Layouts" > "New Pages", I would check to see if "pad top of page with" has been set to insert some blank lines for the section layout used for those sections.

All the best,

Re: Indent the first line of each titled section

In the Compile Format settings (edit your Compile format), under "Section Layouts", choose the "Section Text" section layout. Then select the "Settings" tab at the bottom and change "Paragraph first line indents" to "Do not change". All the best, Keith

Re: default pattern for outliner columns?

One thing on my list is a way of saving outliner column settings that you could apply independent of layouts. I have not yet come up with a simple UI for this, though - I hope to add it to a 3.x update, though. That might include a way of setting a default.
