The manual uses both ePub3 and ePub 3 (with or without the space before the 3).

This impacts on search results.

Thanks, easy fix! That section started out life as a definition list but ended up being a regular subsection.

I think left and right were mixed up here:

4.1.4 TheBinder
The large sidebar on the right-hand side of the project window is what we call the Binder.

Section 15.5.2 "The Basics of Styles"

You can even transfer projects directly between other projects by importing styles.


I don't think you meant to use "projects" twice there. I assume you meant "styles" in the first instance?

The Scrivener project download for Mac downloads the Tutorial project, not the manual.

Do you mean the one labeled: “iOS / Scriv Project / Zip”? If so that’s the iOS tutorial. When the Mac manual is available it will be called “macOS / Scriv Project / Zip”.

Doubled word in S15.5.2: subsection The Styles Panel, list item 4.

"Continuing to the right on the same row you will find two two buttons"

End of next section S15.5.2: link not yet formed:

If you are looking for a way to batch assign styles from existing formatting, refer to [Updating a Document Without Styles to Use Styles].
