Re: footnotes to inline footnotes

The solution that I am thinking of would be a combination of the inline and inspector systems currently in use. The anchor in the text for inspector footnotes would be a symbol enclosed in a box like the current inline system, but the content of the note would reside in the inspector panel. The symb...

Re: footnotes to inline footnotes

Absolutely, I'm in the same boat and not about to give up Scrivener. Footnotes work great for me, but a cleaner way of moving the anchor around the text would be nice when I am editing.

Re: footnotes to inline footnotes

Agreed! I think my preference would be for a marker of some kind (an asterisk or something,) but I haven't thought through the larger implications of that . . .

Thanks for listening!

Re: footnotes to inline footnotes

What if you want the anchor to be at the end of the sentence, but you need to add new text to the sentence? It seems like anytime you add text to the end of a sentence you end up with a footnote in the middle of the sentence. Perhaps this is simply a limitation of the inspector footnote system since...

Re: footnotes to inline footnotes

Is there a way to move the anchor point with footnotes in the inspector panel mode? I've run into this problem a could of times and the only way I could figure out to move the anchor point was to covert to inline footnotes, then back.

Thanks,

Matt

Re: Good software to manage your readings for a PhD

You should definitely look at Zotero. The price is right, it seems unequaled in terms of the ease of getting sources into it, is cross platform, and it is being developed at a very fast pace. I use Bookends, which is wonderful, but for the price Zotero may be impossible to beat.

Re: Changing Fonts, Saving Italics

Thanks,

The problem with convert to default style for me is block quotes. I guess I need to go through my text and add some kind of marker for block quotes so I can find them after converting the text. Thanks again for your help.

Re: Changing Fonts, Saving Italics

Thanks for the help. The problem turned out to be that I was working off the list of "recently used" fonts, which apparently wipes away attributes such as italics. What about setting up styles that don't wipe out italics, is that possible? I'm trying to find a way to quickly bring a little...

Changing Fonts, Saving Italics

Hi, I realize this is a problem that that I am having with the Mac text engine, but I am struggling to figure out how to change fonts and font sizes of my text without losing italics. Is there an easy way to do this? Can I create a style that does not strip italics from my text when I use it? What a...

Covert to Title Case

Hi, I was thrilled when I figured out that Scrivener has covert to title case integrated into the program. I am curious, however, why it capitalizes all of the selected words, rather than ignoring the "little" ones that are not supposed to be capitalized in titles. For my usage it would it...
