Re: BUG (or oversight): No default “body” style as in iOS/mac/any other word processor, instead, the default is “No Styl

Forgive me, but you're misunderstanding how styles in Scrivener work on both the Mac and Windows. (iOS uses a different, older, system of pre-formatted text, not true styles, I think). Of course you can set default formatting for the 'body' paragraph — in fact every single document you write starts...

Re: [RC13] Short Story Project - Compile shifts text to new page

The problem in this case comes from the Compile > Page > "Main body header and footer starts: On Page 2". To workaround the bug in this case uncheck the "Different header and footer on first pages" which is indeed not needed in this project. This bug has been filed and hope to h...

Re: [RC 19] Manual table of contents even more broken

Yes, placeholders that have a functionally useful output in the text should be used in link titles. Without that, stuff like “Chapter 21” wouldn’t work after all, since part of that is a placeholder. But “nonfunctional” placeholders like resets, images and so forth should be stripped out of link te...

Re: Version 3.1.5 Crashing on Big Sur

Good afternoon - I haven't used Scrivener in several months and today when I tried to open it, it crashed. Running version 3.1.5 and I see version 3.2.2 is in the app store but don't know how to download it. How can I update to newest version? If you see it in the app store with a cloud next to it,...

Re: Scrivener 3 for Windows -- styles compiling to Word

After days of work, I have finally created a template that exports to DOCX exactly as I want it -- basic fiction manuscript format, of course. My only obstacle now is that the styles I've set up in the compiler do not translate into the DOCX, which is a problem for two reasons: 1) it creates a flat...

Re: [RC13] Short Story Project - Compile shifts text to new page

I'm on RC19 and can verify OP's results: Front Matter prints on first page, Scene text prints on second page, There are no Page Break separators. I briefly played with changes to Compile format, by changing on Page Settings Main body header and footer starts; After front matter (was On page 2), but...

Re: [RC 19] Manual table of contents even more broken

I can see a similar enough case where this is happening, with stock settings (though note the sample project I provided to the PDF hyperlink ticket pretty much does the following with a bit more): ⋅  Create a test project using the Novel with Parts template. ⋅  Select the entire...

Re: [RC 19] Manual table of contents even more broken

I am sorry drmajorbob, but can I ask for another demo project which has all the bits and pieces inside for testing. A project with few documents and titles and lorem-ipsum document contents will help us a lot. Recently we adjusted some link manipulations and this might have impacted badly the TOC. ...

Re: [RC13+] Short Story Project

Interesting. And you're compiling this with the RC19 Windows Beta client? I'm just wanting to make sure as the screenshots (and your forum sig) suggest you're using the Mac version. In any case I'll run through this again and see what I missed. Thanks again for taking the time to look at this. The ...

Re: [RC13+] Short Story Project

I compiled your test project and looked at your doc file. In both cases, the text does NOT start on page two; it's a continuation of the title page. The section layout for it (see attachments) has no page break. It's working as advertised., no bugs involved. Here I'm in Compile at the main screen, ...

Re: [RC13+] Short Story Project

Not every writer wants to do it the same way you do, so the Short Story template isn't set up the way you want it. It's rare for any of us to get the result we want, precisely, with no modifications to structure and Compile format. Scrivener does a lot, but it can't predict what every reader will w...

Re: [RC13+] Short Story Project

Thanks for looking into it; however, the problem exists when I create a brand new Project using the Short Story template. Without touching any of the settings, it will produce the same issue, title page on page on, text beginning on page two. Try it yourself, with a new project. I can reproduce the...
