Re: Unreadable code when copy Chinese characters in PDF compiled by Scrivener

Try pasting into TextEdit first.
If it looks OK there, Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, then copy into Scrivener.
If it still looks bad in Scrivener, it's an encoding problem.

Add Page Break

I've compiled my 230 page document but I'm getting a blank page 5. Is there any way to put in a page break at the bottom of page 4 but otherwise not touching the rest of the document? Insert=>Break=>Page does not fix the problem. Right now there is a page of text (pg 4), followed by an empty page (p...

Re: How to make: leaders, dot leaders, or leader dots?

I changed the page setup from Printer to Scrivener and changed the margins to 1 cm. That seems to have fixed it.

Re: Dot Leaders

I changed the page setup settings from A4-printer to A4-Scrivener and changed the margins to 1 cm.
That seems to have fixed it.

Re: How to make: leaders, dot leaders, or leader dots?

Any idea why it's doing this? Dark picture is the editor, light picture is as compiled.

By all means, post or share it!
Converting pdf's to images: what's your tool? I have always found this difficult.

but wonder if there is an easier way.

No, I can't use Compile, but thank you.

Re: How to import a multi-page PDF all at once

I didn't know you could add pdf pages to a pdf using Preview. That is a helpful tip. I knew that you could remove pages.

I just tried Quark and it is possible to import multi-page pdf's (the menu item is buried).

Re: How to import a multi-page PDF all at once

I have a multi-page PDF that I would like to include in my document *without changing the pdf.* The goal is to include client-created pdf's in a catalog of documents. I could compile to pdf and just leave the client pdf's out of it, then use something like Acrobat Pro (extremely expensive) to stitch...

Re: How to import a multi-page PDF all at once

You can import any file — and I do mean ANY file — into Scrivener. At the Dropbox link is a video where I drag the Scrivener 1 manual into Research, and you'll see all the pages are there. https://www.dropbox.com/s/j1aiz8w9vrk2mes/drag%20pdf.mp4?dl=0 Into Research, yes. But I need the multi-page pd...

How to import a multi-page PDF all at once

I have a multi-page PDF that I would like to include in my document *without changing the pdf.* The problem is that it is a multi-page pdf and it seems it is only possible to bring in individual pages, one at a time. Is there a way to bring in the entire pdf document? Alternatives along the lines of...

Re: Formatting the first letter of a new chapter

Here's a resource for creating a drop cap in CSS: http://code.iamkate.com/html-and-css/creating-drop-caps/ Another alternative is to use small capitals for the first three to five words of a chapter. Are people really using Scrivener as a LaTeX editor? Is there a plugin to accomplish that? Turning S...

Thank you to L & L

Just finished a major (legal) project and I couldn't have done so without Scrivener. There were photographs, graphics, resource pdf's, doc and docx articles and email contributions from a variety of sources. Scrivener let me assemble all the research for drafting, move the chapters around and compil...
