Installing Scrivener on a replacement machine

Hi, My old desktop machine died a death, and I have a shiny new iMac to play with. My old machine was backed up to a Time Machine drive which I have decided against carrying over wholesale to the new machine to get a fresh start from the clutter of several years. Regarding installation of Scrivener ...

Re: How to change Level of a document?

Thanks AmberV, you were spot on – I created a new folder which I unticked from the "include in compile" list, and put all the poetry folders in there, to increase their depth by one level; then I added a level in the compiler, and formatted the hanging indents that way. It all works perfec...

Re: How to change Level of a document?

It’s a little hard to tell from the screenshot, but I think all of these files are level 2 or greater. Level 2 is defined from the compile “root” (Draft by default), not how far away from the nearest folder a file is. A simple check would be to add a Level 3+ rule to the pane, and maybe even a 4+ N...

Ah, that's an interesting way to do it. Thanks. I'll try this when I've solved the Level issue.

Re: How to change Level of a document?

All a level is is how deeply nested something is beneath Draft (or the current compile group). If you put a folder into Draft, it will be on level 1. If you put a file into a folder, it will be level 2. That is all there is to it, and thus any action that will move something from one location to an...

How to change Level of a document? (SOLVED)

I'm editing an anthology, and have a section of prose and a section of poems. The compile to .mobi format is looking fine so far, but there are a couple of things to iron out, one of which is the way the lines of poetry indent on small screens. Most of my text documents are formatted with small para...

Re: What is this invisibles

It's a page break, I think. Just delete it as you would anything else on the page.

Re: Paragraph indent problem, compiling as .mobi

Three basic things to check: ⋅  Is Override text and notes formatting enabled at the top of the Formatting compile option pane? ⋅  Are all documents in the Contents pane set to compile “As-Is”? If so then they are intentionally ignoring override formatting. ⋅  In the s...

Paragraph indent problem, compiling as .mobi (SOLVED)

Hi folks, I have some body text written into Scriv without indents, and am trying to get the paragraphs to indent in a compile by using compile's formatting controls (move the stop on the ruler, tick 'remove first para indent after blank lines') but when I open the document in an e-reader (in this c...

Re: Footnote formatting via Compile (proofing for PDF)

Many thanks for the replies, it's much appreciated. This was a digital submission (deadline was this afternoon), so in the end I stuck with what I knew and exported to Pages for the remaining formatting tweaks. I still haven't worked out how to set Scrivener up 100% how I want it, so more experiment...

Re: Footnote formatting via Compile (proofing for PDF)

Ah, thanks. Righto. I don't really know much about the types of footnotes, but your description makes sense. I guess I'm using linked footnotes. Do you know off-hand if any standard Mac fonts come with real small caps? Academic guidelines demand something simple like Arial/Helvetica etc., but I don'...

Footnote formatting via Compile (proofing for PDF)

I'm trying to find a way to format my footnotes during the Compile process, and I'm trying to compile straight to PDF to avoid the intermediate stage of exporting to Pages to adjust certain things, if possible. My current problems are 1) the spacing between footnotes, and 2) the use of small caps in...

Re: Influencing Proof Fonts?

OK, Helvetica's working fine for me now – there were a couple of hidden characters in there. :)
