Ah. That was puzzling because I had others with version 1.4.

Pshaw. Oh well!

Version Number in Scrivener Generated .pdf file?

Hello, Scrivener. I can't find this in the manual so I thought I would ask here. This is from the Finder "Info" command executed on a .pdf generated via a Scrivener compile. (Scrivener 3.1.5 on macOS 10.15.4) Where is this "version number"... http://www.aflightrisk.org/PDFInfo.jp...

Grammar / Spelling Context Menu Conflict?

Hello, L&L: I have been noticing this strange error. With grammar and spelling check on sometimes the two seem to fight for attention meaning that trying to right-click on an underlined "check spelling while typing" entry results in the software attempting to correct cut-off words (see...

Re: lock binder order to prevent accidental reordering

Isa, I'm missing something in your suggestion to use backups as a way to correct an accidental move of a scene or chapter. Yes, I see that you can roll back to an earlier version. But let's say you find a version three days ago, before you unwittingly moved a chapter inside another chapter. If you ...

Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly backups

Following up on my incredibly rude revival of this sore topic: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=300211#p300211 , I wonder how hard it would be to add a feature that keeps rotated daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly backups. I do this manually now by renaming my project each 3 ...

Re: lock binder order to prevent accidental reordering

It's probably gauche to revive this thread, but I've been watching it with interest for some time and I finally couldn't resist commenting. I consider myself something of an expert mouser, having been running OS X/MacOs forever, yet I too have fallen to the dreaded: "Wait, did I just move somet...

Wanted: Proofreader / Copyeditor with Scrivener expertise

I have a number of larger projects that I would really like expert eye of a professional to look at (for a fee, of course). I would very much prefer NOT to compile to Word at this stage in the projects. Does anyone have any recommendations for proofreaders and/or copyeditors who work proficiently in...

SOLVED Re: Scrivener -> MMD -> Pandoc -> ICML -> Indesign... line break issues

-t icml+hard_line_breaks -s <$inputfile> -o <$outputname>.icml Alas, this does not seem to do the trick. You could also use regex replacements in the compile system to replace single with double line breaks? This turned out to be exactly the trick. It has the added benefit of leaving the original t...

Scrivener -> MMD -> Pandoc -> ICML -> Indesign... line break issues

Hello, Scrivener. I debated putting this in the MMD forum, but this one seems more appropriate. I'm using the MMD + Pandoc compile method to get an ICML file for importing text written and compiled in Scrivener to InDesign for a book layout. I've run across the famous "hard line break" iss...

Re: Alignment of "Between Sections" Separators with Formatted "Notes" Section

Do you have the Ignore indents when centering custom separators option disabled, in the Separators compile format pane? Unless there is some other factor going on, that should be all you need to keep middles oriented to the margin width rather than the width adjusted by an indent offset. That was i...

Alignment of "Between Sections" Separators with Formatted "Notes" Section

Hello, L&L: In an effort to distinguish the Notes entries from the Synopsis entries when compiling a custom "Synopsis" format, I've set up the Notes to be indented 0.5" from the left margin. Unfortunately, this format setting seems to carry over to the "#" separator, thr...

Re: Changing Subtitles: "Synopsis" and "Notes"

The authorship of the Scrivener manual must have been a daunting project but it has been exceptionally well executed. Thank you! Thank you !
