Re: Random blank pages in PDF compile?

From the main toolbar, try: Format>Options>Show Invisibles and see if there is anything at the page breaks.

Amazon Look Inside - Okay with Windows Scrivener MOBI?

Seeing the other thread regarding issues with the Amazon Look Inside feature made me go searching on the web. I came across a few posts that raises this question: For Windows 1.9.8.0 users who upload a MOBI file made by Scrivener, will this file perform properly in the Amazon Look Inside feature?

Re: Chapter headings but no content!!!

This usually happens because the Scrivener your_project_name.scrivx file has been moved or otherwise disassociated from the your_project_name.scriv folders which make up the entire Scrivener project. A .scrivx file is an XML file, so it would retain the Binder structure as you describe, but if it's ...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

If you don't want to use beta code, that's fine, but it doesn't really make sense to argue that we should release the software now while simultaneously refusing to use the code that we *have* released.

Re: Quick question

Could you also create a new project using File>New Project>Fiction>Novel (with parts) and then resize the desktop windows so you can drag and drop the chapters of each book under the Parts in the new project's Binder? I don't know about the chapter re-numbering, but there's likely a way. The one thi...

Re: Indented paragraphs changed to line-space paragraphs accidentally

One simple way would be to create a new blank Text file in the Folder where you want it. That should be set up in the Scrivener default, by default. Then copy the text from the old text file into NotePad, which will usually strip out any formatting. Then copy the text from NotePad into the new text ...

Re: Scrivener to InDesign

I'm not sure what format WordPad uses. Is it DOC or RTF? In any case, if it were me I would use the Compile command to create an output document with the font settings I wanted, then import from that document to InDesign. You still might end up using WordPad as an intermediate step, but manually re...

Re: Scrivener to InDesign

What does WordPad give you that applying the font directly in Scrivener doesn't? Katherine TBH, I never thought of formatting the text in Scrivener. I'm used to thinking of it as an organizational tool, so I've become used to seeing it in Courier! Since I'm also compiling to .MOBI, do I really want...

Scrivener to InDesign

I did a search and read the prior topics, but I didn't see a clean way to bring text from Scrivener into InDesign that retains all the formatting. Italics in particular are a challenge. At present, I'm copy/pasting the text from Scrivener into WordPad, applying the font I want, and then using either...

Re: How to change formats?

I don't think so. A simple way to do this would be to create a new project in the format that you want, then re-size the windows of both projects on your desktop so they are side by side. Then you can use the cursor to drag the folders from the old project's Binder to the new project's Binder. Scriv...

Re: Moving project within computer

Will the "save as" method preserve all the project's internal links to backups, syncs, etc.? Backups are a program-wide location setting, so Scrivener will continue to place the backups (any name, any version number) in the same location. I don't use Scrivener to sync to other devices, so...

Re: How to share content between projects?

I have several books in a set that all share the same story world. I keep a master project that contains the common elements in a folder that is outside of the manuscript/draft folders. If you open two projects and re-size the windows on your desktop so they are side-by-side, you can drag and drop f...
