Markdown in Scrivener 3

Does anyone have information on Markdown output/processing in Scrivener 3? Before it was released, I often heard rumors that Pandoc would be integrated - is that the case?

Re: Outputting a file during compile

Thanks very much. I experimented with using a Scrivener link, but couldn't trick Scrivener into outputting the file. I'll try keeping the material in the compile folder. I notice that when one compiles through mmd to another format, a lot of auxiliary files are written to the compile directory. It w...

Outputting a file during compile

I am writing an article in markdown, within Scrivener for Windows. I have the multimarkdown compilation figured out pretty well: it stitches the files together, with headings; turns the Scrivener fns into markdown fns (very nice feature); and I have a YAML header which it places at the top. But the ...

Attaching arbitrary files

I would like to have a root-level folder that contains technical files that I will use when turning the markdown output from Scrivener into various forms: csl files, tex header files etc. What is the best way to do this? When I add a csl file (carefully named to represent the bibliography format), S...

Re: Footnote formatting in MMD compile

Thanks, everyone, for helping me understand Scrivener's use of MMD. I came in with what I now see was a mistaken grasp of the MMD compile: that it was intended to be a translation into MMD of the RTF file. Now I see that it is a way of handling files that have been written in MMD from the beginning....

Re: Footnote formatting in MMD compile

After a little more testing, I find that the only visual RTF formatting compiled into MMD is italics and bold. Not underlining/strikeout; and also not tables, lists etc. Footnotes are turned into MMD footnotes (as is documented in the manual).

Re: Footnote formatting in MMD compile

I wonder if there is some ambiguity about the term "formatting" here? That section of the manual is specifically talking about tabs and whitespaces (horizontal and vertical) - which are naturally stripped out in the MMD output. But I would be surprised if the intention were to strip out al...

Re: Footnote formatting in MMD compile

This is not a bug. When you compile to MMD, the inline RTF formatting for bold, italic, superscript etc. is currently stripped out. I use RTF formatting for visual identification, but don't use it for format conversion. There is a one-shot Format > Convert > Bold and Italics to MMD option in the me...

Re: Footnote formatting in MMD compile

I'm travelling so no access to my Scrivener to test, but can you give the exact steps; do you mean **physical** markup or RTF? What I mean is this: if I enter italics or bold in a Scrivener footnote (using ctrl-I and ctrl-B), and then compile to any MMD based format, the text formatting in the foot...

Just tried out on a Mac - same MMD footnote bug there.

Re: Best way to handle math-heavy project?

Thanks for all the information - I'll keep experimenting, and will consider sticking with pandoc within scrivener.

I've reported the footnote bug. That's a shame, as it seems to be the one obstacle between using the native rtf and then exporting mmd to pandoc for conversion.

Footnote formatting in MMD compile

I have just begun using Scrivener. I have a simple test document that contains a single footnote. When I compile to .mmd, the bold and italic formatting in the footnote is stripped out. I assume this is a bug - because when I compile to docx or any other format, the formatting in the footnote is ret...

Re: Best way to handle math-heavy project?

Just keep using Pandoc flavoured markdown directly in Scrivener!!) I guess that would work. Do you edit directly in Scrivener, or in an external editor (I would miss the highlighting etc. of emacs, which I usually use). And then - compile to plain text, and send through pandoc (and pandoc-citeproc ...

Best way to handle math-heavy project?

I am trying out Scrivener to see if I like it - and whether I can use it to organize the research materials and complete the writing of an academic monograph, which contains quite a lot of mathematical equations. At the moment, that monograph/research is in two formats: Google Docs (and I know I can...
