Re: "Select All" on Compile Replacements

I suppose I could work around this by building the replacements into the settings for all my various compile formats, but that would involve having to re-enter them for each format, which would prove to be even more work than ticking all the individual boxes every time. It actually wouldn’t be that...

Re: When compiled, my title page font is smaller than what I wanted

You should probably pop open the interactive tutorial from the Help menu and and at the very least run through the two steps under “Get It Out There”. They will cover the basic philosophy of how Compile is designed to be used, and with a working knowledge of these basics, your formatting issue shoul...

Re: Section Links Add Second Editor Window

And if you mean external links (if you edit the link, you see a URL like "x-scrivener-item://"), such as though added by the compile option to insert link-backs into the document, then how those work will follow the same preference described above. You can actually change how the URL itsel...

Re: SOS urgent

It was registered before, and then a day later was not? Maybe something changed with the computer to make it think it was a different one, and so it went back to demo mode. If it happens again you can use your serial number again.

Re: SOS urgent

Okay, if it is registered then you should have all of the features now. I hope that all is well now?

Re: Can't open my file anymore!

It looks like you are an iCloud user, and perhaps you are using Apple’s new-ish feature to upload your entire Documents folder to iCloud? If so there are two things to be aware of: ⋅  Apple’s default settings will delete old files automatically to save disk space, leaving the sole copy on ...

Re: SOS urgent

If I understand correctly, you started this project in Scrivener 2, and decided to try the Scrivener 3 demo, which as recently expired? If you can still load your project, then use the Fichier ▸ Exporter ▸ comme projet Scrivener 2... menu command to save it in the older format. Otherwise, you can up...

Re: Adding fantasy map and prevent page title from showing

With Scrivener 2.x, the best way to approach this problem is to click the As-Is checkbox in the contents table, alongside the map pages. That checkbox will suppress any of the additional material added to the section by the Formatting pane, and additionally it will cause the formatting of that secti...

Re: Three writing panes or at least a resize option for copyholders

While what Amcmo says is true, this is not a topic without prior explanation, and without ample documentation and description of the design theories behind Scrivener’s two-pane system, and the mechanisms that such a system affords. In addition to the aforementioned link, you will find prior discussi...

Re: I want chapter titles on same page as document text. Can't make it happen.

It sounds like the Layout you’ve chosen for text sections is requesting its own page break. Do you see any indication of that in the preview tile? Alternatively (and less likely as it’s not a default setting), it might be the chapter Layout that is doing this. I recently posted some advice regarding...

Re: How to compile a Scrivener document to Latex?

I don't know, I think it should be possible, but perhaps I don't understand what you are looking to accomplish, as I am not sure how to think of Scrivener as anything other than an outliner.

Re: Shortcut to move paragraph up or down ?

I'd agree that the design of Scrivener is not built around paragraph sized chunks. It can certainly handle that level of detail where it makes sense to (and in fact we recently made some adjustments to the compiler that would allow for sentence-level chunking, though that would surely have only nich...

Re: Main website should be iOS friendly

Glad to hear it's been a good experience. :)

There is surely always something to improve, and we do have a list of things for the web devs to look into the next time we touch up the site, but by and large we're happy with both desktop and mobile designs.

Re: How to compile a Scrivener document to Latex?

Okay that explains the point of confusion better to me. Scrivener doesn't have a LaTeX distribution built into it or anything like that. You're goal is going to be compiling a .tex file and then typesetting that using an editor. Now in a more advanced sense, you *can* automate by having Scrivener ta...

Re: Main website should be iOS friendly

I'm not sure what is meant by there not being a mobile theme in the first place. It definitely does, though since it is width based, it may be your iPad has enough space to show the normal site.
