Re: Code Span as first word of paragraph extends to entire paragraph

Thank you for checking this out for me, and especially, thanks for the workaround.

It took me awhile to figure out how to use global paragraph formatting, but I do like the result. Thank you yet again for the bonus info!

Code Span as first word of paragraph extends to entire paragraph

When I use 'Code Span' style on the first word of a paragraph, and the rest of the paragraph in 'No Style,' it looks fine in the editor, but when compiled to ePub the entire paragraph is in 'Code Span' style. This doesn't happen when I use the 'Non-Fiction Format.' I have been using a modified forma...

HTML/JavaScript rendered inconsistently

I'm writing a book about JavaScript and its use in HTML. When I compile to epub, my HTML snippets, which I want to appear as text, are not rendered consistently. Specifically, "<" should be encoded as "&lt;" and ">" should be encoded as "&gt;", so when...

Re: Monospace italics not preserved when compiling

Hi AmberV, Thanks for your post; you've definitely given me some more avenues to explore. I created a new project, pasted some text into it, pasted some program code into it, and styled the code as Code Block. I'm happy to say that I did get a <pre><code> block for it. This is not what Code Block do...

Monospace italics not preserved when compiling

I'm using basically two font families, Palatino (No Style) and Menlo (Code Block, Code Span). I use occasional boldface and italics in No Style, and occasional italics in Code Span. When I compile to mobi, epub, pdf, or rtf, there are no italics in Code Span--everything is just plain. I do have Menl...

How can I replace a font in Scrivener?

I'm writing a book on programming, so I use a lot of Code Span and Code Block formats. Unfortunately, most of my text is in a font (Euclid) I don't have rights to and don't want. I want to use Palatino. I have set every default I can find to Palatino. I deleted the Euclid font from my computer, so n...

Re: Wanted: Blank lines between paragraphs in PDF

Now I'm even more confused. My first novel is indented properly, no blank lines between paragraph. But my second novel, which I'm still working on, is indented like a non-fiction book. All paragraphs are left-justified, with a blank line between paragraphs. I wish I knew why that happened, so I coul...

Wanted: Blank lines between paragraphs in PDF

I'm using the Non-Fiction format.

When I compile to MOBI or EPUB, every line in a paragraph is flush left, and there is a blank line between paragraphs. This is what I want. When I compile to PDF, lines are flush left, but there is no blank line between paragraphs. Is there any way to fix this?

My wish: A video on creating the Table of Contents.

Even aside from the question of manually making a working ToC, I'd like to know how the automatic generation works. For example, what is a "flat" ToC? What is a "landmark guide"? How do the five checkboxes interact? How can I predict which sections will get a ToC entry and which ...

Re: How do I enter computer code (monospaced, indentation preserved)? SOLVED

Using the Code Block style will indent the code like a Block Quote style would, with a monospaced font but with all lines left-justified. To solve the indentation problem, indent with non-breaking spaces ( Insert -> Break -> Non-Breaking Space ) instead of ordinary spaces. On the Mac, you can make i...

How do I enter computer code (monospaced, indentation preserved)?

I expected "Code Block" and "Code Span" to do what I wanted, but these are apparently not for entering computer code into a book. (What are they for?) "Code Span" gives me a nice monospace font within a line. But when I compile, the font isn't any different from the sur...

How can I create a functional Table of Contents manually?

I can do this: select Generate HTML table of contents . It works. As far as I can tell, everything with a title goes into it, no indentation. Nothing else works. I use Copy Documents as ToC or as Copy Documents as Structured Linked List and paste into a text file Front Matter > E-Book > Contents , t...

How do I get back to font and paragraph defaults?

In some of my scenes, the first line of each paragraph is indented. In other scenes, the first line isn't indented, but there is a space between paragraphs. What did I do to make this happen, and how do I undo it? In general I prefer space between paragraphs, but mostly I just want it to be consiste...
