Compile .mobi

Here is what I want to do: 1) Insert a page break between chapters* 2) Include each chapter in the table of contents *except when the file begins with '***' What happens instead? 1) There are no page breaks between any chapter (which are individual files in the binder) 2) Only the first chapter is i...

Re: Labels, Status, and Arrange by Label?

I have a similar, but slightly different problem than the OP. My novel is arranged by chapter. Each chapter may contain more than one POV. I want the ability to easily view which chapters contain which POV's. Binder labels (appear to be) restricted to a single label. It's helpful, but not sufficient...

Find and delete

I'm adapting a novel into a screenplay using the Scriptwriting mode. I'll paste a chapter or scene from the novel into a new text file and edit (side note: quickly developing carpal tunnel from Shift+CMD+Y). This works fine, except I want to find a way to delete all quotation marks in a binder selec...

Re: Are you happy with Scrivener on iOS?

Once in a while I find myself with a few minutes to spare while sitting in a cafe or elsewhere, but do not have my Mac with me. So I was thinking about purchasing Scrivener for iOS. I commonly have my iPad or iPhone with me, so thought it might be convenient to keep working on my book when the oppo...

Sync question

I use Scrivener on my iPad and sync with my iMac via Dropbox. Works perfectly--but it is slooooow. Like, ungodly slow. Slow enough that sometimes it fails. I think it might be because I have a bunch of large files on the iPad, even though I'm finished with most of them. Here's the (possibly dumb) qu...

Scriptwriting columns

Is it possible to insert columns when in Scriptwriting mode? As in, split screen or simultaneous dialogue?

Re: Compile Help!

https://i.imgur.com/CoHWQO4.png This is what I want to do, but am beginning to believe is impossible. 1. Chapter Title centered, 7 lines prior 2. Caption (for lack of a better tag) left-justified and italicized 3. Body left-justified, with the first two words of the opening paragraph in ALL CAPS

Tracking Characters

I'd like to find a way to identify the (in my case) chapters in which any particular character appears or is mentioned. Yes, I realize I can always just search, but I suspect that there are ways to do this using meta-data tags. I have all of my characters in a folder in the binder. Ideally, I could ...

List search?

I'd like to define a list of words for Scrivener to search and reveal all instances. Is this possible?

Re: Compile Help!

Silverdragon -- Thank you! I have managed to figure out how to do most of what I want to do. The last remaining thing may or may not be possible. Each chapter title in the manuscript uses the HEADER 1 style, and each comes with a subtitle which uses HEADER 2 I set the "delete this text" fo...

Re: Compile Help!

Thank you for the reply. I won't pepper the forum with a million questions, but I will say that I don't think what I want to do is possible based on the documentation. I have yet to be able to find a way to ensure there is a page break between chapters, amongst other things. A WYSIWYG editor would m...

Compile Help!

I'm trying to compile my manuscript for MOBI (V3, Mac High Sierra). I can get it to work, but not with the formatting I wish (at least not without making the changes to the document and using AS-IS, and even then it isn't right). My project is divided into chapters. I would like a page break in betw...

Replace Quotes

I notice that some third-party tools (ProWritingAid is one, pasting from Word another) will replace curly quotes with straight ones. I made the mistake of doing a project replace, only to discover that all of my dialogue tags were wrong. Is there a way to correct this throughout the document? If not...
