Re: multiple HTML file creation for nonlinear story telling

Try testing a project with more than one section break in it. A section break is the marker that indicates a new internal file in an ePub document.

Re: Services not available with PDFs?

Is this perhaps something that changed more with the macOS upgrade than Scrivener? On 10.12 here, and in Scrivener 2.9 I get nothing on right-click at all, and the Services menu itself is empty. In v3 I get some useful commands on right-click, but the Services menu remains empty. I tested a few othe...

Re: Lost words

Sorry we haven’t managed to get back with you yet. It’s been the weekend, and on top of that we’re a few days behind the curve still, with the big launch and all. I have a few questions, and hopefully in investigating them they help you track things down: I use Scrivener 2.8.1 and I back up on Dropb...

Re: Raw LaTeX, Scrivener 3 and compile process

Thanks for the follow-up clarifications. For example, I have two or more figure in a section labeled as “\label{id9}” and all the figures in this section are labeled as “\label{id9}”. Is that normal? It doesn’t seem to blow anything up if I try it in LaTeX, but as for whether or not that is best pra...

Re: Direct access to Thesaurus

The default system-wide shortcut for this is ⌃⌘D, as well—same idea, you just point at the word even if you’re typing elsewhere. Or if you are typing and the mouse pointer is hidden, the cursor position is used.

In the video titled Compiling Your Work Part 2 - Section Types and Section Layouts, around 02:40, he goes over the use of that area of compile.

Re: Scrivener won't update

Yup, I use LaunchBar for most file management, and so it tends to happen to me now and then as well. Path Finder would be in the same category—I mean in theory these tools should be using the same mechanisms Finder does internally, but in practice there seems to be some difference. For a time there ...

Re: Scrivener is very slow to toggle in the binder

I would suspect those that need a “rebuild” are the types of programs that use a lot of temporary files and caching to speed things up. Scrivener mainly just works straight off of the disk with simple files directly, which negates the need for that kind of stuff. There is very little to rebuild. The...

Re: Export/Import Research Folders Between Project Developers

I think the easiest way of doing what you’re describing is to create a new blank project, drag the folders in from the original project’s binder into the new one, and then send the new project. Where that procedure will be less safe is when you make heavy of us custom metadata. Dragging items betwee...

Re: Page Numbering (Multiple Schemas)

Scrivener itself doesn’t have anything like that. You can see which page numbering codes it supports in the Help ▸ List of All Placeholders... menu command, and scroll down to the “Page Numbers” subsection. The <$pagecount> token is the closest thing, but it’s more like the second example you provid...

Re: Scrivener won't update

Oh, that sounds more like the software is stuck in Apple's AppTranslocation quarantine. It's a bit of a bug as far as I know, I've seen it happen with many different programs over the years. The primary symptom is that you keep getting a new Dock icon when launching it---and it would make sense that...

I see! I was thrown by the "####" at the top; made me think you were using Markdown of some sort for the base processing. Thanks for the explanation!

Re: Raw LaTeX, Scrivener 3 and compile process

De nada! ⋅  I mapped line breaks ( ⌥⌘↩ or Insert ▸ Break ▸ Line Break ) to the “\\” code. That seemed a very safe assumption to make as a basic default to me. This type of line break is not a concept in raw text, it’s really only a word-processing convention as far as I’m aware of. So if o...

Re: MathType Handling

Nice, looks great! How are you stripping the image itself out, is there a style you're using to strip the image out? That would be a better approach than annotations come to think of it, if you needed to make an ePub for whatever reason, you could just swap which styles are being removed.

Re: MathType Handling

Yeah I don’t know about the pasting of LaTeX code into MT, but you can set its copy mode in its Preferences/Cut and Copy Preferences pane, and even choose your flavour. So you input the equation, quick Cmd-A/Cmd-C, then save it back to Scrivener and paste to get the functional code in place. The wor...
