Re: Headings disappear during compilation

I hope it goes well. Actually, you'll find you're not rebuilding your formatting from scratch (it just feels like it at them moment...) You 're essentially going to be saying in the Binder: these folders are chapter headings , these documents are sections , these documents are subsections . When you...

Re: Headings disappear during compilation

I do sympathise with the trouble you've had with such a deadline — it's a horrible feeling. Unfortunately it's not really possible to give specific help without more of detailed description of the problem (which understandably you can't give). (I'm not part of the developers, BTW, just a beta tester...

Re: Headings disappear during compilation

'No human input' tends to suggest that you haven't assigned a Section Layout to each of your Section Types — in which case the compiler is simply passing through the basic settings from the Binder. (This is one of the changes from v2.) Click on the button 'Assign Section Layouts'. You'll see a list ...

I think that works too and may be simpler. Good idea.

Re: Compiling Poetry Packets for Submission - Header Problem

Glad it helped Jenny. Version 3 doesn't change anything in the general outline of what I wrote, but it does change the specifics of how you do it. If you've only just updated to V3, then you're probably not aware of some of the changes in compile — V3 has some different assumptions which in the end ...

Re: Outliner expected

brookter, a really excellent post; I suggest you make a Using Scrivener board thread out of it 8) Thanks! I can do, if you think it will be useful. I'll have a think how to make it slightly more general. (Would be helpful in someone from L&L could verify that the points are all valid though fir...

Re: How did I create a window with two projects??? I love it, but not sure how to recreate it

I'm glad it helped -- the tabs are actually provided by macOS, I think they were new in Sierra, but I could be wrong.

To recreate the 'tabbed' projects as a one-off, then open both projects and Window > Merge All Windows .

Re: Has Correct spelling when writing changed in Scrivener 3?

You need to make sure auto-correction is turned off:

1. Preferences > Corrections > Auto-Correction > Correct spelling errors as you type is OFF

2. Make sure Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling while Typing is ON.

I hope this helps.

Re: Compiling Poetry Packets for Submission - Header Problem

Which version of Scrivener are you using? Basically, the simple way round this is treat your name and address as a separate document to the title and text of the poem, then join them together at compile — but how you do this depends on which version you are using. In both versions, you'd set the bin...

Re: Scratchpad preferences (e.g. font size)

Found it!

The scratchpad default font is the same as the default Notes font -- so it's governed by

Preferences > Editing > Formatting > Notes font:

Change it there and new scratchpad documents use the Notes font. (I've just tested it and it works.)

HTH.

Re: Scratchpad keyboard shortcuts, e.g. to create a new document

The real shortcut to move from panel to panel (list to editor, editor to list) is CONTROL-TAB (and shift-ctl-tab), not tab/shift-tab. Tab on its own works from list to editor, but of course is used to text tabs, so doesn't work the other way round. Ctl-tab is the same shortcut as in Scrivener proper...

Re: Scratchpad preferences (e.g. font size)

You've probably got the Scratchpad to be in plain text, which I think it may be by default. You can set it to use RTF documents though (only for new ones of course, it won't convert old ones) and then you'll be able to use the Ruler and Format Bar (cmd-r) just as you would in the main editor. Note t...

Re: Scratchpad keyboard shortcuts, e.g. to create a new document

In V3, if you highlight a document in the document list then... I don't know whether it works for V2. Enter > <New Name> > Enter > Tab will create a new item in the scratchpad and move you to the editor field. I discovered this by accident the other day and I don't know whether it's new for V3 or wh...
