Off-topic and unhelpful replies (Re: Nonfiction Authors: How do you index print books?)

The original poster did not want to offload indexing to a professional indexer. Nor did they want to play around with layout or typography. Read the question and answer the question. It appears that Scrivener does not have any way of embedding and preserving index entries through multiple revisions ...

Re: Mapping Text Style To Custom CSS for EPUB output

I am so pleased that you are implementing styles for paragraphs and character ranges. I have developed a semantic style naming convention so that content can be round-tripped between Word, FrameMaker, and LibreOffice (via exported *.doc, *.docx, or *rtf files). For example I might have bF_Body-first...

Re: ENHANCEMENT: book indexing (not too difficult to implement?)

WHY BOTHER? (more) When writing non-fiction books, especially instructional or how-to manuals, it is useful to have a thesaurus of preferred terms . Consistent terms ensure that the same thing or idea always has the same name. In a book about indexing you might have these terms: entries keywords. Se...

ENHANCEMENT: book indexing (not too difficult to implement?)

With Project Keywords, Scrivener is not very far away from being able to compile indexes. Each keyword is associated with one or more documents. Currently I am writing a non-fiction book about learning to ride bicycles. The chapters are divided into sections and subsections, each devoted to a single...

Crowd funding for Linux releases?

What does everybody think of crowd funding for further Linux distributions? No funding, no release. Free distributions to donations over $???. Rest of world has to pay a licence fee. Note: I have no idea how crowd funding works in practice, but just throw it out for discussion.

Getting notification of new Debian/Ubuntu releases

I have just installed the current beta release of Scrivener for Linux on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr. How to ensure that I will receive update or release notifications? Is there a special place to subscribe for these?

Regards,
Hedley

How do you set preferred units of measure?

I grew up with what we quaintly called Imperial* Units of Measure -- inches, acres, pints, pounds, etc. But Australia has been a metric country for decades, so that anyone under 40 yoa will have no idea what these mean. Where can I set preferences/options for metric units of measure for page sizes, ...
