Re: Is this a good idea?

unless that character is the sort of lowlife scum who would actually use phrases like lol and rofl when talking. For me, it’s odious to see such a sentiment in any context, but it’s especially distasteful to see it in a community of writers, and particularly when the OP asks a question about writin...

Re: Compiling to MS Word: possible to add fields to footers?

Hello. During the compile process, users can use placeholders (in headers and footers or elsewhere) that will add document info, such as section name, project title, page count, etc. Most of these placeholders/fields become static when compiled to Word. For example, if you use a placeholder for the ...

Re: MulitMarkdown issue

Hmm, I’m not sure why that isn’t working, unless perhaps Replacements are being run after the MMD conversion is already done—I bet that’s what it is. If so I can’t think of any other approach to make things easier than original source revision. The other trick, converting paragraphs spacing to lite...

Re: MulitMarkdown issue

You might be able to get away with adding a Replacement to your compile settings that converts one carriage return with two, meaning no text in the editor changes. Hello, Ioa. That doesn't work when compiling to Word, PDF, simple RTF, etc. Only if doing a MultiMarkdown to ... compile. Or am I missi...

Re: MulitMarkdown issue

I was just going to say... If using a MultiMarkdown-based format during compile, you can use a replacement to replace a single return with a double return (as Ioa says in the post above). However, this doesn’t work for non-MultiMarkdown-based compiles, such as PDF or simple RTF. If you want PDF, doc...

Re: Make Blank Project Template default when opening Scrivener

Hello. Scrivener's options allow users to reopen projects that were open on the previous quit, or to open the template chooser. I believe that most writers have a limited number of projects that they work on and probably don't need to regularly start new projects. Also, if the sytem opened with a bl...

Re: MultiMarkdown issue

Hello. Do you only have a single return between paragraphs? MD/MMD expects two returns to create a full blank line. https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax#p Paras.jpg If you do only have a single return (no blank line), do a test by adding additional returns to your opening paragraphs a...

Re: Spacing between header and section

Hello. There are two settings to check initially. 1. Separators Check the separator settings for Heading and Section. If they have 'empty line' selected, try 'single return' instead. 2. Title Format In the sampler for each type, click in the title line and then check the spacing settings ( choose ot...

Re: Thread List / More-powerful Comments

As an example I tell you this. A few month ago a freelancer was translating my second novel from Spanish to English. In two separated paragraphs I have a line of text repeated intentionally for a dramatic purpose. When he translated the book I notice that he had translated the two paragraphs slight...

Re: Scrivener used by Rian Johnson to write Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Having worked on scripts that were never allowed to leave the studio’s premises, that were under armed guard at all times, and where all personal devices were prohibited to ensure there was a super-secure air-gap, I’m very surprised he was allowed to walk around with the MBA at all.

Re: Can I use serial key number of Scrivener 3.0 (Mac) to register for Scrivener 2.9 (Mac)?

[EDITED because I believe I misunderstood the OP's post on first reading] Do you already have Scrivener for Windows, but you're unable to install Scrivener for Mac 2.9 on your Mac? As you say, Scrivener 3's serial number should validate Scrivener 2.9. Are you copying and pasting the registration det...

Re: <$chapter> Not Supported in Page Headers?

Might depend on the output you are compiling to, but this works for my projects (compiling to PDF, at least): <$pageGroupTitle> Gets replaced with the title of the document that first comes after the page break most recently preceding the header or footer in which it occurs. In practice, this is use...
