Re: Touchbar screenshots?

I loved using the touch bar on a recent project as it used a large number of styles. Assigning those without keyboard shortcuts via the touch bar was very nice. This is the default touch bar, showing the styles applied to the currently selected text: Touch Bar Shot 2019-01-14 at 10.47.30.png And aft...

Re: Overriding Bulleted List Indent/Tab Stops in Compile Style

For the outline, there's a bug whereby it only gets included if you turn *on* "Optimise for print-on-demand services" (i.e. exactly the opposite of what should happen). This doesn't even work in my project. Not to mention it kills all the internal links in the PDF. I'm having trouble fath...

Re: Overriding Bulleted List Indent/Tab Stops in Compile Style

A small, but big, update. It's working, but there appears to be a bug. I've not fully investigated it so I don't have solid reproduction steps but it appears that if you add or change bullets after applying the style, it overrides the compile formatting. Perhaps expected behaviour, but not by me . :...

Re: Overriding Bulleted List Indent/Tab Stops in Compile Style

Thanks so much for that. I've been investigating and it seems something in my project or my compile style is clobbering the tab stops.I've been through a number of steps but all produce the same result: no change in the tab stops. I'm going to try rebuilding the compile style and maybe deleting and ...

Come to think of it, none my lists are nested. Where am I going wrong with styles?

Re: Overriding Bulleted List Indent/Tab Stops in Compile Style

What I've tried so far: I’ve tried copying formatting and pasting into the style and also setting them manually in the style with no luck; in both cases, including font family and size information (just to try everything!). I’ve also tried playing with tab stops in section layouts (both with preserv...

Overriding Bulleted List Indent/Tab Stops in Compile Style

All of the bulleted lists in my manuscript are assigned a paragraph style. I use this to provide some spacing around the lists when they go into the final compiled PDF. I’d like to adjust the indentation/tab stops for these, but I’m not sure if the best option is going to be manually setting them in...

Re: Compile: First x words in small caps – real small caps possible?

That's totally understandable.

If I really want it I can always do some adjustments in Pages before exporting to PDF, but I can probably just live without it.

Thanks for the reply!

Compile: First x words in small caps – real small caps possible?

I've had a look around and going off of some old posts, getting real small caps programatically is difficult, perhaps even impossible. Is that still true? Faked small caps are just too ugly to be acceptable (and the font I'm using does have small caps). If it's not possible, I understand but as an a...

Re: Avoiding Orphaned Titles

Oh, hell. I never considered that I could use Format menu in the Compile sheet! Perfect. Apologies for the silly question! :)

Avoiding Orphaned Titles

I'm compiling a PDF and some section titles are getting orphaned (with avoid widows and orphans enabled). I've had a look around but can't seem to find any way to prevent orphaned titles without putting each new titled section after a page break. Am I missing something? I could put the titles in eac...

Re: Project replacement expanding to <$include:…> prints <$include:…> statement

<$include> and other tags are themselves types of replacements, so you cannot rely on them being done in any particular order. The text is first built (compiled) and <$include> tags replaced, and then replacements are run on the built text. So what you are seeing is expected behaviour. Thank you fo...

Project replacement expanding to <$include:…> prints <$include:…> statement

A project text replacement (and it seems format-specific ones, too) that references an <$include:Text> placeholder, upon compiling, only outputs the raw placeholder, not its referenced text.
