Re: Scrivener won't open, even after reinstall

I would just like to update this post by reporting the solution, as suggested by the very helpful Jeff at Literature and Latte. For some unknown reason (likely not to do with google drive), I needed to set Scrivener to open in comparability mode. I am using Windows 7 and set it to open with compati...

Re: .mobi: Missing chapters in 'Contents' page.

If you've got multiples, that probably means one of the files you imported had page break characters in it. Turn on invisible characters in the `Format/Options` sub-menu, and hunt through ch. 7 for any page break characters. Thank you very much, AmberV. Duly noted :) I've been almost an hour playin...

Re: .mobi: Missing chapters in 'Contents' page.

Also, have you got page breaks between these sections, and titles applied? Only items with page breaks ("section breaks" in the Separators pane) will be listed in the ToC. Keith When using the ' Section break ' option in Separators/Text separator I get a ToC with all of my chapters have i...

Re: .mobi: Missing chapters in 'Contents' page.

What does your binder look like, though? You say your chapters are not folders, but in your "Separators" pane, you have section breaks between everything except between text files. If all of your chapters are single text files, then they won't have a section break between them according t...

Re: .mobi: Missing chapters in 'Contents' page.

[img] Are you using a manual contents file instead of an automatically generated one? It sounds like you might have at one point created your own table of contents, and then forgot to update it after editing out some chapters. In the first version of the compilation I had a Chapter 2 where I listed ...

.mobi: Missing chapters in 'Contents' page.

Hello there, I have organized my book in 21 chapters. No subchapters. No chapters are folders. After compiling my draft I can see in my 'Contents' page the chapters 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 20, 21, and Notes. In 'Notes' are the 712 footnotes the book has, and they work perfectly. The chapter 2 is not ma...

Oooops... :oops: I feel pretty silly now.

Thank you very much.

I have a bunch of problems with the compilation in .mobi. I hope they all are so easy to point.

Thanks again :)

.mobi: How to change the 'Contents' page name.

Hi there,

I can't find where to change the name of the 'Contents' page when exporting to .mobi.
My book is written in Spanish and that 'Contents' has no sense at all.

Thank you for your time.

Re: Footnotes in Pages and pdf

[... snip ...] The workaround, therefore, is to export from Scrivener as RTF (or .doc), then open the file in OpenOffice and re-save from there as a .doc file. This will create a "real" .doc file that can be opened in Pages with footnotes intact (RTF-based .doc files such as Scrivener gen...

Re: Footnote display size

I'll revert the process, put footnote from default size from 14 (yes, I'm almost blind :lol: ) to Courier 10 and 'ta-daaa', ready ship to my proof reader. You don't even have to bother with the reversion, since you can adjust your compile settings to output footnotes in Courier 10 and produce a dra...

Hi Kevin, You can set the font used for footnotes in the editor in the "Formatting" pane of the Preferences (note that this will not change existing footnotes, only newly-created ones, but if you are talking about the footnotes in the inspector you can select them all, ctrl-click on them ...

Re: What's in a Pill?

Well, I just had to give an update. I love the USB Pill because it's all gadgety. I replaced the memory stick inside for one with 1gig of ram and a neat red LED built into it. I use it for storing all my Scrivener related stuff as well as all backups (I have many backups) and it looks so cool when ...
