Re: Cannot compile tabbing within text

If anybody else is interested, I have figured out an unorthodox (and time-consuming) method to achieve tabbing within eBooks … use non-breaking spaces between the words you want separated. A little clunky, and not really proper , but it works for poetry, which has unorthodox formatting compared to p...

Re: Cannot compile tabbing within text

No worries, I know it's a bit of an edge case :mrgreen:

However, as the previous version of Scrivener used to be able to manage it (could be a KindleGen change), I live in hope that there's a way around it.

Re: Cannot compile tabbing within text

Lol. In the preview the tabbed section looked as I wanted it to, but when posted it removed the gaps :roll:

Re: Cannot compile tabbing within text

Thanks for that – I've now been able to set some of the simpler tabs :)

However, I still need to do some more complicated variations, where there are multiple pieces of tabbed text per line, e.g.

This Is A Tabbed Line

Re: Cannot compile tabbing within text

Sorry, I just realised I didn't clarify that the issue is only with eBook/Mobi compiling and not PDF.

But thank you so much for getting back to me, JoRo :)

Cannot compile tabbing within text

I'm formatting some poetry in Scrivener which features several tabbed segments, but when I compile (using the ‘Text and notes use editor formatting’ option within ‘Section Layouts’), but none of the tabbed spacing is compiling. I was wondering if there was an obvious setting I'm missing when putting...

Re: Using Custom Metadata in Headers/Footers

Thanks for getting back to me, and for explaining the intricacies. As I do use Scrivener in that basic manner – one 'text' file per chapter, poem or short story – this seems like a limitation, but can understand that when people use more complicated structures (multiples 'text' files per chapter, et...

Re: Using Custom Metadata in Headers/Footers

I assume this is not possible, as, whilst I'm able to 'print' the custom metadata within the body of a page, it simply won't show in the header or footer … is there a particular reason why, if it can be compiled in the body, it can't be compiled in a header?

Using Custom Metadata in Headers/Footers

I've searched but couldn't find any concrete details about using Custom Metadata within headers or footers when using Scrivener 3. It would be very useful, especially when compiling a short story anthology.

Thanks.
