Re: How many fiction writers do we have here?

A pale shadow falls across my desk. A hot hand squeezes the shoulder of my cotton shirt. ‘Curran, come with me. Now, please.’

Re: Export to pdf not recognising styles

Thanks for this. Yes, I used the Para spacing dropdown for both First line and Body styles (see attached). They are the same. However, i will try your suggestion re indent. However, does it not seem strange that the .pdf spaces wrongly and the .docx correctly?

Re: Export to pdf not recognising styles

If I set styles in Scrivener - say one with indent, one without indent,same font, then when I export to pdf the font changes. Same if I export to Word. I've tried fiddling with project settings - to no avail. Have you done the tutorial? The part about Compile? Where will I find this tutorial, please?

Export to pdf not recognising styles

I have set up styles in a document. Overrriden Scrivener formatting preferences with Project preferences. Tried a half dozen times to export styles, but pdf will only recognise one. Happy to send .scriv file if requested. Thanks.

Cannot find 'compile for preview'

I am taking a course which refers to 'compile for preview'. I don't have this option (Mac, Scrivener 2.7.1 build 26120). Has it been removed, as I would find the feature extremely useful?
