How to print a *selection* of text within a larger document

Hiya, let's say I have a single document containing 5000 words and I want to highlight a section of the 5,000 words and print just that. How do I do that without cut, copy, pasting into a new document? Is it possible to highlight a chunk of text within one document and print the highlighted text? Th...

Re: How to change the size of the .pdf preview inside Scrivener?

When I drag-n-drop a .pdf file into a new scrivener file it shows the .pdf file *inside* the new scrivener file, but I would like to make the dimensions of the .pdf file bigger inside the new scrivener document for ease of viewing.

Can you help?

Thank you!

How to change the size of the .pdf preview inside Scrivener?

Hello, when I drag a .pdf into a new Scrivener document it shows the entire file, making it easy to scroll up and down. But the preview window of the .pdf is significantly smaller than the Scrivener document dimensions. Is there a way to increase the size of the .pdf preview inside a Scrivener docum...

How to insert a block quote at the beginning of a chapter.

For instance, if the following were all centered into the middle of the page, how would I get the text below Chapter One to be set as a block quote?

Chapter One

Can I edit the right click mouse options in scrivener?

For instance, if I right clicked on a word in a document and wanted to add the command to "open new Comment" to the right-click menu... could I add that? Is any customization possible?

Thanks for your time!

Re: How to edit the word count target in Scrivener?

For some reason the little target icon in the lower right corner of the screen is missing. I have the horizontal color bar indicator down there, but no "target" button that I can click to edit the session word count.

Thoughts?

Hi, all of the instructions in this tutorial work for me *except* I can't get Scrivener to export as side-to-side pages as are indicated in this blog post.
