Re: Scrivener 3 for Windows -- styles compiling to Word

In any case, it would be fantastic if you could show me how to get footnotes properly styled at least to .RTF. Not sure what is going with your setup. It works for me with a very simple checklist: ⋅  New blank project. ⋅  Type in “Test this.”, then hit the shortcut for inline fo...

Re: Is Scrivener Actually Worth It?

I have noticed that this is a commonly used post in the spamming community, and other subhuman forms of depravity. I am just going through and moderating, after a few years of primarily posting. I mainly moderate for myself. I recently started writing a post. I’m even considering handing out leaflet...

Re: Scrivener 3 for Windows -- styles compiling to Word

BTW, does this mean that impossibility for a user to export a footnote to Word or LibreOffice with its own „footnote style“ (now a footnote is ending up with „No Style“ in the .doc or .odt file) is also caused by some problems with Scrivener ground level design? They aren’t really related at all. T...

Re: Scrivener 3 for Windows -- styles compiling to Word

Alas no, for both cases. Separators only use whatever formatting preceded them, they don’t acquire the style and have no settings for applying one. If you can get away with the more limited logic, you might try using the “Prefix” or “Suffix” tabs in Section Layouts. These full formatting fields allo...

Re: [RC 19] Manual table of contents even more broken

If this feature only modified how the "table of contents" works, maybe. But there is no such thing, really. It's just a list of indented links one per line. These links can be anywhere, and can be used as normal cross-references throughout all areas of the book.

Re: [RC 19] Manual table of contents even more broken

It's a bit muddy since it is better thought of as a display matter, as you put, rather than a linking matter, since the linking aspect of it is optional (and not always applicable, e.g. print or txt). You can set the compile setting to strip out all links for instance, and these settings will still ...

Re: Table of Contents header generated twice

To verify, does the text show up in the HTML itself, when opened in an editor like Sigil or Calibre? That kind of looks to me like a book reader adding a "page header". Whatever the case, I do not get this result when compiling to ePub3, and viewing the result in the Calibre ebook viewer o...

Re: Pandoc to ICML

For just about every file format that can be expressed in pieces (i.e. not binary like PDF or docx), Pandoc will by default only export the content without any kind of boilerplate document structure around it. This of course makes it easier to copy and paste into such a boilerplate, or use native sy...

Re: Version 3.1.5 Crashing on Big Sur

For future reference, with the direct-sale version you will find a "Check for Updates" menu command in the main Scrivener menu that will do the download and install for you. :)

Re: [LH4909] Formatting for .mobi

KindleCreate is about 500mb of “huh?” in my opinion. :lol: I just use Kindle Previewer to create .mobi files in those odd cases where I want to use ePub to start with (usually to work on some post-compile formatting in Sigil). ePub3 through Calibre should be fine for now, though as I mention the sma...

Re: [RC 19] Manual table of contents even more broken

I wonder what’s meant by updated links in the option, though. Does {image name} in the suffix make it an “updated link”? That simply refers to the functionality in this pane overall—the visible link text, as it was typed into the text editor, is being updated to reflect changes made on the fly by c...

Re: [RC 19] Manual table of contents even more broken

Yes, placeholders that have a functionally useful output in the text should be used in link titles. Without that, stuff like “Chapter 21” wouldn’t work after all, since part of that is a placeholder. But “nonfunctional” placeholders like resets, images and so forth should be stripped out of link tex...
