Re: Size of document >> no images, plenty of words >> normal?

Did I mention I had plenty of snapshots? 8)

Did some house-cleaning, and the file-size is now down to 24,6 mb (from 163 mb)... Which seems far more reasonable.
Thanks again for the help!

Re: Size of document >> no images, plenty of words >> normal?

The Documents ▸ Snapshots ▸ Show Snapshots Manager is going to be the best tool for clearing out this kind of stuff. Refer to §15.8.5, The Snapshots Manager for all the details, but in brief: ⋅  You can search the whole project for snapshots by different criteria. ⋅  Run date-ba...

Re: Size of document >> no images, plenty of words >> normal?

Any recommendations regarding the "culling of" snapshots?

Would this be best handled inside Scrivener – or could I delete them externally, in the project-tree, so to speak?

Re: Size of document >> no images, plenty of words >> normal?

Do you use Snapshots a lot? Under the hood, it looks like every snapshot is an RTF file in itself, so if you're regularly taking snapshots of the whole manuscript, that could add up.... (This isn't necessary, but...) If you want to take a look: duplicate the project in Finder first then right-click...

Re: Size of document >> no images, plenty of words >> normal?

When you say you removed the images, did you move them to Trash and then empty the Trash? If you don't empty the Trash, they'd still be in the project file. Thanks – I did that. It was only a handful of images – so guess it's possible it wouldn't make much of a difference to the total size. What I'...

Size of document >> no images, plenty of words >> normal?

Hello all, I'm coming to the end of a large project, and have now combined different "chapters", which were separate Scrivener projects, into a single project. The end product sees just north of 201,500 words, spread across 926 pages – and comes in at 163mb . Is that normal/acceptable, or ...

Safe bet that was! 8)

Thanks to you both for putting me out of my misery! Will be needing to sharpen up my typing skills. :roll:

Re: Em-dash and its oddball(?) accoutrement

That looks like an en dash and a non-breaking space. Are you perhaps pressing OPT HYPHEN followed by OPT SPACE? HYPHEN is a hyphen - UNDERSCORE (above the hyphen on most keyboards, so the shift key is usually needed) is an underscore _ OPT HYPHEN is an en dash – OPT UNDERSCORE (above the hyphen on ...

Re: Em-dash and its oddball(?) accoutrement

I can't reproduce this. I find myself idly wondering if it is systemic. Would it happen in Word or TextEdit? gr P.S. Option-dash for n-dash. Shift-option-dash for m-dash. (I'm sure you know this.) I did misspeak – I'm referring to a n-dash then, not a (e)m-dash. In other words, the one in between t...

Em-dash and its oddball(?) accoutrement

Hello all, I'm not sure when it started happening – maybe it has been there all along – but is now something that is increasingly annoying me ( something seen, cannot be unseen and all that!)... When typing the "em-dash", which I do frequently, by means of the "alt+-" combination...

Re: Compiling to Word with "Styles"

You must do this manually in your Compile format. You set up your Heading 1-3 styles in the Compile Style Editor pane , and then you use these styles in the Compile Section Layout Editor pane . This is the result in Word's document map: Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 09.42.13.png See a test project that...

Re: Compiled to Word, how to have Footnote superscript number a different size?

A. Select all and copy from your Word doc. Now, start a New word doc and paste into it. This new doc will use your preferred settings as reflected in Word's Normal template. (The Word doc you got out of Scrivs compile does not.) This then may put things to rights by your lights. Many thanks for the...

Re: Compiled to Word, how to have Footnote superscript number a different size?

Word should automatically resize superscripted footnote numbers. What format are you exporting to? Are you using the .doc or .docx format, or RTF to create your Word document? All the best, Keith Hi Keith, I am/have always compiled into Word's .docx format. I'm not sure if this behaviour is new - t...

Compiled to Word, how to have Footnote superscript number a different size?

Hello all, Hoping someone can point me to that 'one' button to fix this, and that its not something far messier. When I compile my inline footnotes into Word, the footnote font size etc., is all correct. But in the main text, where the rest of my words are Arial 12pt, the superscript footnote number...

Re: Quotes to Smart Quotes - any way to automate?

As you're on a Mac, you don't have to use the degree mark (' or ") or a Scrivener process to convert these to curly quotes. You can just type type curly quotes by using the keyboard: Alt + ] produces an opening single curly quote ( ' ) Alt + Shift + ] produces a closing single curly quote ( ' ...
