Re: Can't locate formatting for project notes

OK, I tried one more thing that worked.

Format - formatting - apply preset - body. (I applied a different format, instead of removing the formatting that was there.)

I can finally move on. This has bothered me for days!

Can't locate formatting for project notes

Hello, all. I've done as thorough a search as I can. Somehow, my project notes acquired some formatting that I did not intend (my cat likes to walk across my keyboard) and the first line indent on my project notes is fully halfway across the notes area. For the life of me, I cannot find where projec...

Making a timeline

Maybe I'm just missing something basic... I'd like to make a timeline of my 3 novels that run concurrently, with a long dotted line between the beginning and the end. Along the way, I'd like to be able to note events, and attach that bubble to the line , not to another note. Am I missing this possib...

Re: Why don't folder progress bars work?

I need clarity on this, please. I did not understand the explanation given above. I have folders that are chapters, and subdocuments that are scenes. The folder has a target set. The subdocuments do not. In Scrivenings view - folder level shows total word count for the chapter, and target, and progr...

Re: Margins from Scrivener to Kindle previewer wrong

@AmberV - Thank you. I had no idea about the format/formatting/preserve formatting setting. As for margins - my brain went on holiday. I meant indents. Sorry. When I set my indents to anything other than 0.5 exactly they don't look right (can't be at 0.49 or 0.51). But at 0.5 they show up perfect (m...

Indents from Scrivener to Kindle previewer wrong

I'm pulling my hair out, so I apologize if I missed this exact topic in my search. When compiling, I UNchecked "override text and notes formatting" because I have centered text in several places that doesn't center right unless I do. But then: -If I set my margins in the editor to 0.3, it ...

Making changes over multiple scenes in one chapter

I know how to use find and replace for the particular scene I'm in, but if I need to make changes over a whole chapter with multiple scenes, is there a way to do that? "Find and Replace" is too narrow, and "Project Replace" is too broad.

Thanks.

Remove formatting except italics

I'm new to Word, new to formatting, not too new to Scrivener. I need to compile my MS for Word to eventually upload to Smashwords, which is pretty strict with its formatting requirements. My MS has all kinds of formatting all over it by now since I've been tweaking things for more than a year. Is th...

Re: Scrivener for ibooks

@reepicheep - You said "I add Scrivener created ePUBs to my iBooks library regularly. " and then you said "Whether the ePUB meets the iBooks Store specification I haven't checked" I'm confused - what is the difference between the two actions you are describing? (I am a PC user - ...

Scrivener for ibooks

Does the epub generated by Scrivener meet Apple's requirements for the ibook store?

Thanks

Re: Metadata fields in compile - what are they?

I'm reviving this topic because I am no clearer on what the subject and description fields are for. Is the previous poster saying that if I'm publishing a Kindle ebook I need to consult Kindle instructions to find out what to put in there? Can anyone who has published a kindle ebook give me any idea...

Metadata fields in compile - what are they?

Before I compile my fiction book as an epub I need to fill in the metadata boxes in the compiler. I have searched the Scrivener manual and I understood absolutely nothing of what it said regarding metadata. The assumption EVERYWHERE seems to be that the reader/author already knows what it is, and I ...

Need Kindle book to open before Chapter 1

I have searched until I am almost blind and am not sure if this is a Kindle publishing question or a Scrivener question. First time uploading to Kindle. Writing in Scrivener, compiling as an epub, uploading to Kindle Previewer. How do I know where the book will open? At the very least, it needs to o...

Re: Drag and drop repeats multiple times

OK, I figured out how to replicate the bug. I dislike tying new dialogue on the very bottom line of the screen, so I will hit "enter" multiple times to bring the last line of text to about mid-page. If I drag and drop into the lower 1/3 of the screen immediately after doing that, it copies...

Re: Drag and drop repeats multiple times

It did it again today, while was using my touch pad to do the dragging (previously had used a wireless mouse).

Anyone?
