Re: Screenplay format how-to?

What do you have in the Title Page document in the Binder?

Or you could look at the information in Preferences > General > Author Information — is that filled in?

One or both of those should work.

Re: Screenplay format how-to?

In the compile dialog, there's a drop down box on the right: Add Front Matter -- use it to choose the Title Page or folder, then make sure you've given it the appropriate Section Layout. Screenshot 2018-02-21 13.39.34.png You can set the Title and other relevant details (Author etc) in the same comp...

Re: Issue with numbering

It's a bit difficult to diagnose from the description — what you've typed looks OK, AFAICT, but there may be something in the rest of the settings. Could you copy the project, then cut it down to the essentials (e.g. enough to show the problem once), anonymise it and post it here? (Make sure you inc...

Re: Current line highlighting?

Have you got 'Highlight current line' ticked in the Options panel (you can see it in your screenshot, to the left of Colors, which is highlighted)?

That's the only thing I can think of at the moment.

Re: Outliner: Centered View, and Longer Synopsis Issues.

On your two points: The centred width does seem to return to the default — I don't know of any setting to prevent that, I'm afraid. But on the second point: there are two ways of looking at the Synopsis in the Outliner: 'Normal' (it's not actually called that!) when the full synopsis is displayed, s...

Re: Screenplay format how-to?

Full details are in the Manual (Chapter 21), but basically... First of all, choose your type of screenplay / script from the Format > Screenwriting menu. Then make sure the document you want to write is in Screenwriting Mode — toggle cmd-8 till it is. You can tell whether it's in Standard Text mode ...

Re: Scrivener Free Trial Download for iOS

There isn't a free trial for iOS as far as I know — there isn't an easy mechanism for it on the App Store apparently. Yes, you'll need a separate licence: so one each for iOS, Apple, Windows. But within each platform you can have it on as many devices in your household as you wish (within reason, I ...

Re: horizontal dotted line

Just a quick general point here — hope you don't mind. Scrivenings (multiple documents — even non-contiguous noes — scrunched into a temporary 'virtual' document) are one of Scrivener's most fundamental and useful features — they're a large part of what makes the program so much more useful than Wor...

Re: Create text template set

Unless I'm missing something, I don't think you can change the background colour for individual documents at all — they're a project wide setting — so document templates won't help here. What you can do is to assign different labels to individual document templates, then use the View > Use Label Col...

Re: Project Title changed, document icon still shows old title

Could you be a bit more explicit, please? Which document icon are you referring to — the icon of the project file itself in Finder, or something else?

Thanks.

Re: Scrivener 2 to Scrivener 3 MMD

Broadly speaking you use MMD in V3 the same way as in V2, but V3 has more features and fewer workarounds — for example you can embed mmd syntax into styles on compilation which many people find useful, — but that means some of the wrinkles are different. As you're talking about using it for a new pr...

Re: Scrivener 2 to Scrivener 3 MMD

Why put yourself through all that stress? When you first opened your project in V3, it automatically took a backup copy in the old V2 format, so if you haven't made any changes, why not just re-download (or reinstall) V2 and use that backup copy of the project — you can use both versions of the prog...
