Re: Creating Table of Contents from Collections view?

Thanks. But how to retain the order of documents in my collection in a ToC? Using your suggested method does highlight the correct subset of documents, but when pasted into a ToC, the ordering from the collection isn't retained.

Creating Table of Contents from Collections view?

I'm trying to generate a table of contents from a Collections view. But when I highlight the documents from my collection and choose Edit >> Copy Special >> Copy Documents as ToC, that option is greyed out. How can I create a ToC from my Collection? I can't do this from the Binder, because the Colle...

Compile not preserving alignment?

When I compile a document, the alignment is not preserved. This particular document is center aligned, and the resulting file comes out entirely left justified. I've looked at Compile > Formatting, and the 'Override text and notes formatting' checkbox. Here's the problem: * If I leave the box checke...

Re: change font for 'File > Export > Files' (not compile) ?

Thanks, DavidR, you're exactly right! What I find is that the file is exported using the file that is actually used in the Scrivener document. 12-point Calibri seems to be the original default for that; at any rate, that's what my documents use. But if I change the font of a document (select all, th...

Re: change font for 'File > Export > Files' (not compile) ?

Maybe I wasn't clear, sorry. What I mean is that, when one chooses File > Export > Files, and the file is exported, the font that Scrivener decides to use presumably come from some setting (somewhere). The question is where, and how to change that default font. For me, all files are exported in 12-p...

change font for 'File > Export > Files' (not compile) ?

When I export a document via File > Export > Files (not compile), the font used is 12-pt Calibri. Where/how do I change this font? I've tried changing every font in Tools > Options > Appearance > Fonts (and Editor) and still the font stays 12-pt Calibri when I export.

Re: Outliner not sortable in the Windows version?

So, because I'm the first one to raise this concern, it's not valid? Sorry, your logic doesn't follow. Regardless of past feedback (or lack thereof), I still contend that an outliner without sorting is of minimal value. This might be more pertinent to those of us whose projects include many (hundred...

Outliner not sortable in the Windows version?

Hi, I eventually discovered that the outliner is not sortable in the Windows version, which effectively makes the outliner useless. This isn't so much a "wish list" request, but a request for a very, very basic feature. I'm working with hundreds of documents, and there's currently no way t...

Document references hardcoding folder paths

In "Document References" I often keep links to folders on the filesystem which contain files that I need to reference. I do this simply by drag/dropping the folder into Document References, which creates a nice link, which can later be opened with right click, then "Open File Location...

Compare snapshots?

Hi,

I'm sure I'm missing something simple, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to compare, or "diff" a snapshot with my current text. Searching the web seems to indicate there's a "compare" button, but I simply can't see it (perhaps it's hidden?).

Thanks.

Small caps not available for titles in compile?

I need to have titles formatted with Small Caps during compile. This seems to be available on the Mac version but not Windows, is that correct? Compile >> Section Layout >> Case tab >> Title - seems only "Normal" and "Uppercase" are available. If so, any word on when this will be...

Re: Compile: formatting by type, not hierarchy?

Thanks, this works as a workaround, though not ideal, as if I do the formatting in the editor (with compile as is) then to make future formatting changes, I'd have to go back and manually re-format each of those poems. That's sort of what the compile feature (as I understand it) is meant to address....

Compile: formatting by type, not hierarchy?

I'm returning to Scrivener after a few years hiatus, and am trying to understanding how formatting works during a compile. I've read the full section in the manual on formatting, but frankly, the "levels" concept is not at all intuitive to me. I can't figure out how to format my manuscript...

status of Compare button?

i'm currently using Scrivener v1.0.3. I notice there's a 1.2.x release out now, but scrolling through the release notes it doesn't seem like a compare button has been added to the snapshots feature, is that correct? if so, any rough estimates as to when we'll be able to compare snapshots with Window...
