Okay, now I really am confused. :) Right now, I just need some way of getting these annotations into LaTeX, be that through very simple tags in the XSLT file or whatever. I know nothing about CSS etc, so a lot of this discussion is beyond me. I just need something solid to work with as I implement M...

The thinking is that you are unlikely to open and close the inspector frequently. You will either have it open for a period of editing or closed for a period of composing (or whatever). When it does cut into the text, the zoom button is "intelligent". It will expand everything to accommoda...

If Keith decides to leave the "third XSLT" option out of the main distribution, that is, while leaving it relatively simple to add our own XSLT additions as individual users. Well, like I said in my last post, I'm kind of hoping that someone will send me a "third XSLT" option (m...

Ah... Okay, thanks. In which case, would you mind preparing the necessary XSLT file and sending it to me at keith AT literatureandlatte dot com? Or post it or whatever. I really want to get this going tomorrow morning, but I don't want to rush you. :) I can always change it after you have it ready. ...

Okay, this sounds good. The other solution, though, is that Scrivener could just add the LaTeX colour formatting into the plain text stream before it goes through MMD. Given that this is only an issue with the LaTeX export, surely it would actually make more sense for Scrivener to insert: \color[rgb...

In which case, the other - simpler though less visually attractive - approach is just for Scrivener to place square brackets around annotations before converting to plain text, and leave it like that. The (big) drawback would be that they would not be coloured in your LaTeX file; the advantage would...

Eek. Frankly, being no MMD or LaTeX expert, this is a rather difficult one. Personally, I don't want to dabble with the XSLT file. And if that has to be done, I would rathe the annotations get exported to proper LaTeX annotations - comments or margin notes or whatever you would normally use here. Fr...

Right, so now I'm a little confused on the annotations thing. For footnotes I will just parse the attributed string for the footnote attribute and swap them out for MMD syntax, which can be converted for LaTeX etc...

So, just to clarify, how should I best handle annotations?

Thanks,
Keith

Scrivener Gold used to have a "To Do" list that worked like this. I got rid of it because you can now just keep text documents in the root folder. The reason I haven't implemented global notes is that you can just use a text document for this, keep it in the root above the draft folder, an...

Hmm, interesting. It would be possible to get it working, but it would be a lot of work. I would have to write out the RTF file and then insert the comments and footnotes directly into the RTF stream. This is what I do already, but things are complicated by another layer of abstraction: it is one th...

QUESTION: Should MultiMarkdown export to RTF work the same a normal MMD RTF export? Or should it attempt to convert the footnotes and annotations into true RTF footnotes and annotations?

Another thing I would like to experiment is a way to detect and convert Scrivener's annotations, and turn them into something more meaningful in LaTeX. I am waiting to see how Keith gets them exported to start looking into that, though. Definitely the use of the \color command, perhaps in conjuncti...

Actually, on this score I highly disagree, unless there is some option to toggle between automatic header creation and manual creation. I would much, much rather assign these by hand. The hierarchy as depicted in the Binder is not, for the way I work, necessarily indicative of the actual book hiera...

Actually, thinking about it, what I could set up is so that you could have a text field next to each highlight colour in the Highlight Finder, when I implement it. That way, you could write in the meaning for each highlight right there, so that it would be there to remind you which one is which befo...
