Scrivnings mode Show Chapter Titles but Hide Scene titles?

I like to title my scenes within a chapter for organizing them. But when in scrivnings view I want to only show the chapter titles. I can only find a way to turn off ALL the headings.
Ideas. This is using RC8

Re: Amazing work, you guys...

Agree
Also nice to see some process in bug reports from the Beta users. Tagging the Version [RC8] etc and solid summary to help them work bugs faster.

RC7 : Screenplay Dual Dialog

Just tried the Preserve Formatting technique.
I get a blue highlighted box but nothing when I compile the screenplay.

We really need a proper dual-column dialog format. I really want to leave buggy CPU eating Final Draft behind.
Thanks

Re: Unable to paste images from Edge (Chromium) into Scrivener

But since Chromium browsers are now most of the market with Firefox shrinking. This is a design that needs updating even if after release.

Re: Issue with Character names in Scriptwriting

This is how the screenwriting autocomplete system is set up. It adds as you type vs analyzing the document.
Go to the Project menu, Project Settings and remove the errors from your autocomplete list.

Re: Hmmmm, second bug in 2.9.9.2

Yup can confirm both..
They probably did a fast release to fix a bug and missed the internal checks stuff.

Re: RC2 (and about what is a release candidate)

Can I come live on your planet where released software has ZERO bugs. Sounds wonderful!!!

RC means that it doesn't ship with known serious bugs and planned features are in place.
It has never denoted perfection.. yes soon you will have to pay for this.. I already have.,

Re: Given coronavirus, are those of us using the Beta going to be... discommoded on the 31st?

Not sure where your concerns are?
They have NEVER missed a new version on or before the beta expiration.
Release management seems fine to me. But I only have 30 years in the software industry so what do I know...

Re: Online Sharing/Editing like Google Docs?

I was part of the Microsoft Word test team in 1999. That is when Microsoft first started working on this idea in earnest. It took a totally new file format etc. In some ways it has taken them almost two decades to make it work as envisioned back then. I suspect the first way to do this would to be i...

I own a Scrivener 1 license for Windows and Mac, and I am definitely going to buy a Scrivener 2 license for Windows when it becomes ava...

Re: B40: Final Draft Import Broken

Probably did it out of order. So that brough it in as a screenplay BUT. Terribly formatted it didn't recognize and standard screenplay formats it all comes in as general text. You should make a good importer. I can't be the only one fed up with FD11 and its buggy code. Looking of a good tool that su...
