Re: Novel-in-a-Day 2: The Revenge

Hi everyone, I've just handed my part in to be included. I was quite intrigued to read the background of my character. I decided to spice her up a bit, as well as add another character. Not telling through, you'll have to wait and see ;-) I really enjoyed this, and hope that NIAD 3 will follow next ...

Re: French-language support

Hi Martin,

That thread's about six years old now, though, and can't really be considered relevant, as it was before v1.0 was released. It doesn't actually say that (in that thread) that there's French language support. Thanks for your help anyway.

French-language support

Hi everyone, In addition to being a native speaker of English, I speak French to an almost-native level. As I am writing a novel in French right now, I'd like to know if Scrivener has French language support built in? I also have a French dictionary integrated into the Dictionary app of my Mac also....

Re: newby question about ipad

Hi kezzy, Here's what you need to do: 1. Connect your iPad to your Mac. 2. Then, in iTunes, click on the "Apps" item, underneath the "Library" heading. 3. Find Scrivener, then click and drag it to your iPad, which can be found under the "Devices" heading. 4. Wait for it...

Name Generator crash for v2.3

Hi there, While using the name generator with all non-English (British) names deselected, and having it generate 100 names of medium obscurity, of both male and female variants, I went looking for some extra name dictionary files. I couldn't find them, so I backed out of the dialogue, got the spinni...

Formatting issue-- how to alter chapter headings

Hi there, I am currently having issues with my chapter heading formatting. When my books are compiled, the chapter heading is like this "Chapter UN" (French for one). This is because I worked with my Mac set to French for a while, before changing back to British English. However, upon goin...

Re: Table appearance on a Kindle

My chapters are a set of sectional folders, with the corresponding chapter itself inside.
Using Scrivener, how would I go about making my own ToC?

Re: Table appearance on a Kindle

Thanks AmberV,

I already have Scrivener make ToC's for me. Is that sufficient?

Re: Table appearance on a Kindle

Hi AmberV,

Thanks for letting me know. How do I insert screenshots of the table as graphics into my book while working on it in Scrivener?

Re: importing image for cover

Hi pigfender,

You're almost right. You need to import the image into the Research folder *before* you may use it. You can't drag and drop. To do so, click File > Import > Files... and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope that helps,

Table appearance on a Kindle

Hi there, I have myself a Kindle 2, and use Scrivener to compile my novel for the Kindle. I have a table of information that displays perfectly in Scrivener, exactly how I want it, yet on my Kindle, while the table and its data is present, the data appears squashed up against other words, and out of...

Re: Creating hyperlinks in Scrivener

Hi Keith, Thanks for the prompt reply. The reason why I (initially) disqualified Scrivener links was because I was under the impression that they were completely internal and would not be present in the book itself. (At least, this was the impression that I gleaned from the manual). Thanks for clear...
