Re: How to save compile settings?

Thank you so much for all of your generous help with this. I think you're right about using the Scivener's templates. I've tried it a few times, and it does work better than the original way I had been doing it via DTP. Thank you for all of that. Your last line caught my attention, namely... rather ...

Re: How to save compile settings?

Ah, I see, and yes that makes perfectly good sense to me—much like how I would use Scrivener’s own shared template folder to generate new copies of a thing, over the software’s own templating system. If it’s going to end up in the binder, might as well make it there from the start if you can. But a...

Re: How to set Scrivenings as default view?

For the record, the setting you enabled won’t make a difference to which group view mode is “default”; it makes it so that when you nest files within files, so that you get a “stack of papers” icon in the binder, those are treated as de facto folders by the software. By default they will always loa...

Re: How to save compile settings?

Any particular reason why it’s not actually a template? :) In case you aren’t aware, it’s File ▸ Save as Template... . That’ll save everything about the project down to the files in the binder and whether you have the inspector open, let alone the compile settings, and any compile Formats you’ve sa...

How to save compile settings?

I often duplicate the same Scrivner project (it's practically a template), and so I regularly compile the same sections and alway compile it as an RTFD file.

Is there some way to save these setting so that I can just refer to them whenever I compile these duplicated Projects?

Thanks!

How to set Scrivenings as default view?

I'd like to have Scrivenings as my default view whenever I select any folder for any Scrivener project. To that end, I've followed these steps: Scrivener Preferences > Behaviors > Folders & Files >[Checked box for] Treat all documents with subdocuments as folders What else do I need to do? Thanks!

Re: How to reduce the size of Scrivner templates?

Thank you for your helpful reply. It took me a little while to figure it out, but when I opened the "package contents" I found heaps of left over snapshot files and folders. Turns out, that was the source of all the bulk data -- not anything left over in the Scrivner project trash. Thanks ...

How to reduce the size of Scrivner templates?

I've created a scrivner document as a template -- though it's not saved as template via Scrivner. Rather, I've saved it as template that store in, and use through, DEVONthink Pro. For some reason, that Scrivner template file is rather large -- 2.6 MB. I'm wondering how I can look into that file to d...

How best to set up Replacement for select parts a template document?

Hi, I using Scrivner (still using v. 2, alas...just because of the age of my Mac) to create and flesh out a template I often use for work. Also, I basically make several duplications of the main folder and text (documents) within them, depending on the number of groups / subgroups I'm submitting thi...

Re: Alternate views for Collections

Ok, I've reviewed the section in the manual you referenced, and tried applied various set up options under Formatting. So far, I haven't had any success. The main problem it seems is just getting any Keywords -- let along any labels -- to show up in exports via Compile. I don't know what I'm failing...

Re: Alternate views for Collections

Thanks for the video detailing your process. So around 1:35 we have exactly what I cautioned against above: Ah, so at this point your selection is the list of stuff in the binder sidebar right—the one that isn’t sorted? :) Try selecting the sorted list in the outliner instead. You are selecting the...

How to import keywords into Scrivner from another app?

Hi,

I'm about to import a batch of documents into a Scrivner projects which contain several hashtags, which would essentially become Scrivner Keywords. Is there a way to seamlessly convert the documents' hashtags into Scrivner Keywords?

Thanks!

Re: Alternate views for Collections

I thought you had suggested Excel – just as a format that would better organize and group the selection of notes by Keywords & Labels. Sure, that’s what I mean by you having to experiment though. I can’t tell you whether exporting a CSV file is going to be better for you than this approach of c...

Re: Alternate views for Collections

Ok, I think I follow… So then how would you advise me to compile from there? Just got to Compile and just select Current Selection? That’s one way to do it, if the outliner sorting is satisfactory. The Outliner sorting is fine, but I still haven't yet figured out to use it for the desired output fo...
