Re: Latex output "Could not convert to required format"

Amber... Hmm, I had no problems compiling to LaTeX in an earlier build (which may have been more recent than b30), but now I am Progress! Amber... Here’s a way of putting it: can you compile at all to LaTeX? Yes. AFAICT so far, double curly braces throws Scrivener into a hairy compile fit,[1] and b...

Re: Latex output "Could not convert to required format"

Yes, as noted I ran into no difficulties with either that or more extreme tests with brackets. I put this out to my developers around the world. Two responded. They are getting the same as me. Would you mind providing feedback on what your compile config is, and what you surrounded my example code ...

Re: Latex output "Could not convert to required format"

Thank you again Amber. Very helpful. There's a lot for me to mull over and maybe come back upon if on reflection it would seem helpful to others. Did you try the code example I provided? <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}"> <head> <meta charset=&quo...

Re: Latex output "Could not convert to required format"

...the newer versions of MMD no longer use HTML comments to pass-thru raw LaTeX code. I can't say how many times I swore when I saw that. Thank you Amber! It explains why using HTML comments within code passed through to Latex was cutting off at --> . Continuing the research for those who may have ...

Re: Latex output "Could not convert to required format"

I've occasionally observed the original issue across different versions of Scrivener and think I've identified one part of what's going awry. I'm currently on "Version: 2.9.0.30 Beta (757109) 64-bit - 28 Nov 2019", same issue. Background: I use Scrivener to write a lot of technical informa...

Re: Windows Beta 19-21 Crashing

@Krastev... Perhaps you should carefully read the reason from the OP, the thread as a whole, and take into account that thousands of users cannot be bothered to respond, feel they don't have confidence in their technical ability for providing feedback, or will be abused if they try to give feedback....

Re: Windows Beta 19-21 Crashing

I updated to Scriv Beta 21, RC1, With prior beta I had no crash problems until this morning (Win 7 PC with 16GB memory). From 07:00 - 08:30 it crashed each time about 30 seconds after loading --- without me touching anything. Only other programs open were Firefox (latest) and procexp.exe. I have not...

Latex compile changed in Scriv 3 beta for Win?

For a long time, in versions up to Scriv 1.9, I used inline Latex commands. For example, for a compile time insertion of my 'packages' file I would use Code: Select all <!--\input{/packages}--> Those HTML comment markers worked successfully. Now I am faced with output like... Code: Select all $<$!--...
