Re: Bug exporting "fireplace" to .mmd format

An edit I added to my above comment before I saw your reply: Wait - I just noticed that such an entry is automatically made when you click on the "add" button. One was probably already there, but it didn't LOOK like a proper entry to me. Often in such fields you'll see words in the field t...

Re: Bug exporting "fireplace" to .mmd format

Whoa - I just found the problem. I got the brainwave to try using the replacements panel to force the word "replace" to be interpreted AS "replace". When I clicked on the "add" button - suddenly two previously hidden entries appeared. Each set to swap "replace"...

Re: Bug exporting "fireplace" to .mmd format

The "Replacements" pane is empty - that's not the problem. I hadn't noticed that it is specifically "replace" that is being changed. I double checked that this is what's happening by trying this: "Replace. Fireplace replace." which yielded this: "With. FiWith With....

Bug exporting "fireplace" to .mmd format

When exporting to .mmd format, the word "fireplace" is consistently mis-exported as "fiWith". This is very strange. I've tried it in more than one place in the same text doc, in more than one text doc, and in different scenarios, such as using a capital for the first letter. I ha...

Re: More smart multimarkdown editing features

The value of the markdown mode toggle is that it allows people to work in their preferred manner. I suspect that even with the styles-to-markdown at compile-time features that you describe (which were also among the features that I asked for in my wishlist), some people will prefer to work directly ...

Re: More smart multimarkdown editing features

I personally do not see the need to toggle mmd-markup on or off during editing, and am happy to use the markup as I would in a plain text editor.[1] my preferred tool for this is Paru . Sooo... you don't see value in saving time marking your doc up? I'm thrilled that you're happy with things as is,...

More smart multimarkdown editing features

I love that scrivener handles some of the multimarkdown ... marking for you (headers on export, and footnotes, for example). I'd love to see more of that. Examples: 1. Add a toggle to the formatting bar that causes it to behave normally, or as a multimarkdown marker. When in markdown mode, any styli...

Re: Collaborating With Scrivener

Thoughts? Yes, I think that if you need specific features which you find in another software but not in Scrivener, then use that other software. That sounds like good advice until you realize that other program also lacks features that you need. I'm trying to avoid a tortuous workflow that is strun...

Re: Please do not go subscription

I actually think that the subscription model has the potential to benefit both the business and the user when it's done right. However, I'm not 100% down with how it's currently implemented by anyone. The best example that I've seen of the subscription model is the photoshop for photographers bundle...

Re: Collaborating With Scrivener

I have the same concern, and it has driven me to explore all sorts of other options. I'm still doing that now. I get the huge technical challenge that is represented by facilitating online collaboration, but frankly - I also think you're going to find that this becomes an ever more significant obsta...

Footnotes vs inline footnotes

Hi, can someone explain how inline footnotes are intended to be used? My best guess is that they designate an aside-style comment from the author to the reader, like something they might put in brackets when providing a quick point of clarification. I'm not sure if that's right though, and I'm uncer...
