Re: Change scene separators?

Thanks. I've made progress, but there's still something... I have a Chapter, and within that Chapter, I have two Scenes. Between those two Scenes, there used to be (as I said in my OP) a hash mark and then on the next line another hash mark. I've gotten to the point where I've eliminated both hash m...

Change scene separators?

When I compile to a Word document (Manuscript), my scenes are separated by two hash marks (#), one on one line, and then another on the next line. How can I change this? I'd prefer three asterisks, all on the same line. FWIW, I'm running Beta Ver 2.9.9.3. I posted here because I don't know whether i...

Re: Cannot print after compiling to Word (different problem than compiling to docx)

Well...this is a new one on me. It doesn't appear to be a Scrivener issue. My printer doesn't like the Sitka font! I can't print anything in that font. If I change the document to a different font, no problem.

I'm intrigued now.

Re: Cannot print after compiling to Word (different problem than compiling to docx)

Interesting. I just tried compiling a MS Word doc (97-2004) using the Manuscript (Courier) format, and it printed just fine. However, when I compile a MS Word doc (97-2004) using the Manuscript (Times) format, that's a no go on printing. May I ask you to try to replicate this compiling using the Man...

Hmm. Rebooted computer. Restarted printed. Same result. Will do more troubleshooting.
Thanks.

Cannot print after compiling to Word (different problem than compiling to docx)

Ver 2.9.9.3 Beta (894377) Yesterday, I experienced the problem of not being able to compile to a Word docx. Thus I compiled to a doc. Today, I tried to print that doc, but I can't. My printer status box shows that the doc is being sent to the printer, but then nothing happens. The doc vanishes from ...

Re: [LH4486] RC3 Bug: Compile to Word Creates Unreadable Content - Cannot Open

Same problem here, but with a slightly difference error message. When compiling to docx: "We're sorry. We can't open <file name> because we found a problem with its contents." Details: "The file is corrupt and cannot be opened." Given the option to try to "recover the conten...

Word Frequency results - Locate instances of word?

When I check word frequency (Project|Statistics), I of course get a list of words, with their count and frequency.

Is there a way to click through to the separate instances of a particular word? Or must I perform a Project Search for a particular word in order to locate those instances?

Thanks.

Retrieve license key for Ver 1

A few years back, I purchased a license for Ver 1 of Scrivener. More recently, I started using the Beta version and have been updating it as it expires. After I started using Beta, I uninstalled Ver 1, but I decided I want to keep Ver 1 on my computer as a kind of backup. I just downloaded and insta...

Re: On Compile, 1st line/1st paragraph of text not indented but subsequent paragraphs are. Want to indent 1st as well.

I agree with all you said. I'm nowhere near a final product, and am just interested in compiling it in (partial/incomplete) manuscript form. As such, I just find the non-indented first line to be distracting. Once it's a finished manuscript, I'll be doing a more refined compile. That being said, how...

On Compile, 1st line/1st paragraph of text not indented but subsequent paragraphs are. Want to indent 1st as well.

In compiling my novel manuscript, my chapters are "sections." When I compile as a Manuscript in pdf, the text of the first line in the first paragraph of each Chapter is not indented, while the first line of subsequent paragraphs are indented. I would like to indent the first line of the f...

Top margin for Chapter 1 different than for subsequent chapters

I'm working on a novel manuscript. I have each chapter as a Scrivener "scene." When I compile, each scene is a "section." If I compile for pdf, and I go to "Choose layout for Section documents," I choose one that shows page break and beneath that "Chapter One"...
