Scrivener vs. Mac OS Text Engine

I would like to type the following, without any automatic intervention:

(a)
(b)
(c)

Unfortunately, Scrivener changes these lower case letters to capitals. Capitals won't work in my text.
How can I prevent Scrivener from substituting capitals?

Thank you.

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

Finally, a work around: 1. Purchase Vellum. It's only $250, no discounts. 2. Rummage around and find the Scrivener Vellum Export template. This may come with Scrivener, it may be a Vellum add-on; I don't remember. 3. Compile document for Vellum. You will get a .docx file.Vellum can't open anything e...

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

Maybe an export to hex; then the errant bytes could be deleted there.
But you would have to know the hex value of that autonumbering (excuse me) auto-numbering code. <$hn>? <$n> or...?

Surely there's an easier way than a hex export.

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

--Compiling to Markdown didn't work. Same issue. --Compiling to LaTeX didn't work. Same issue. But at least I could fix it. Doc looks like crap though, all the paragraph separators are gone (a paragraph separator is two carriage returns in LaTeX, which otherwise ignores blank space in a *.tex file. ...

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

To clarify: 1. When drafting a document, is there any way to paste plain text besides copying the contents of the clipboard to Emacs/Vim to strip everything out (possibly problematic because I need UTF characters) and then selecting again, copying again, and then, and only then, copying into Scriven...

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

A couple of additional experiments, with odd results. Compiled to plain text. Scrivener would not be defeated so easily. It added the hated, unwanted, uncommanded paragraph numbers. Why?? Tried pandoc=>Word (docx). Sending the document through a Haskell black box without even a graphical interface t...

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

The internal Scrivener "Modern" compile setting to .docx still inserted unwanted paragraph numbers. Tried the screenplay setting, just for the hell of it. Screenplays don't have outlines or numbered lines, right? They are plain text documents, right? No matter. Scrivener still inserted unw...

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

I was under the impression that Scrivener 3.0 uses its own text engine rather than relying on the underlying Mac OS text engine. But: trying to copy plain (UTF) text from another document. There's no "copy plain text" option. Copying activated autonumbering, even though this is set to &qu...

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

Now compiling, and Scrivener has added unwanted numbers to the document. Numbering was inserted manually in the draft. There is no automatic numbering. In the Compile => Format section you referred to, there is nothing to turn off that references autonumbering. The top image is pre-compile, the bott...

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

In the "All Options" area of Compile, check out the "Formatting" pane > Section Layout... It sounds as though you are using a compile format that is set to insert auto-numbering as a title prefix, and you can edit it or remove it there. I'm not compiling. Just drafting a document.

Select Documents for Compile

In v.2, it was possible to select (by clicking a checkmark box) those documents that you wanted to be included in Compile.
I can't find this functionality in 3.0.
Admittedly, Compile in 3.0 is a feature I have struggled with from the beginning.
Can someone tell me where this is hiding?
