Re: Image won't compile in either Mobi format

Thank you for that reminder, but the result is unchanged. I still get the general L&L "Great Novel" thumbnail. Ah, well.

Image won't compile in either Mobi format

I am trying to compile a short story in both epub and mobi format to post on BookFunnel. I have no problem with the epub format, but neither mobi format will add the cover image I've created. (It is jpeg, 1600x2560.) I have ticked the "include front matter" and unticked it. There is no oth...

Creating a preface

I have a revised draft using the Novel (with parts) template. My writer's group has suggested that what is now Chapter 1 be set up as a preface instead. I have found instructions from Bobby Treat on his Evernote site (https://www.evernote.com/shard/s586/sh/7f7b0191-2834-4b6d-a44c-efdfe3b3dc37/9f7f9b...

Moving file from dropbox to local drive

I have a completed project on Dropbox that I wish to edit while I'm on the road for a week. There is an accompanying Aeon Timeline file in the same folder. What issues might I face if I were to copy this folder to a local external drive so that I can access it when away from wifi, then copy it back ...

Re: Backing up on separate platforms

Thank you, both. It seems to me that my current practice is adequate. Good to know. (And no, I would not have put either backup on the same cloud account and certainly not in the same folder. I was born yesterday, but was up late last night.) Thanks, again.

Backing up on separate platforms

I am working on a novel in Scrivener 3. I work both on an iMac and, when away from home, on a new MacBook Pro. The project files are on Dropbox. I keep the automatically generated backups on my local drives, so that not all my data is entrusted to the cloud. This means that backups are not in sync. ...

Compilation question in Scrivener 3

I am having a small compilation issue that I'm sure can be fixed simply, but I can't figure out how to do it. My five parts and twelve chapters all have titles, but they are not printing in compile mode -- just "Part 1, Chapter 1, etc. Can someone point er to the solution?

Where is metadata from Aeon Timeline

I have synced a Scrivener project with an Aeon Timeline and expect to find metadata in the Scrivener scenes/events, but can't find it. Shouldn't it be under either metadata or custom metadata? This is the first time I've used Aeon, so perhaps I'm doing something wrong.
