Re: Link Specific Text from One Document to Another?

This is a very broad topic in Scrivener, as you might imagine, and in my opinion it is one of the areas that it really excels in over other tools on the market. This is an area that is best described as a gestalt of practices and multiple smaller features. That means much of how you do things will c...

Re: Which version to use?

Here are the [release notes page](https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener/release-notes?os=Windows), for your reference, but my guess would be you were holding back to avoid a project format upgrade (this would have been for mobile sync support), maybe because you were using Linux as well as a ...

Re: Clarification on beta installation

Unfortunately they have it set up so that the timer lockout happens before auto-update gets a chance to run, so if you do end up in that scenario you have to do the uninstall/install routine with a fresh download.

Re: Sync with External Folder iOS to Android

Which sucks but seems like the most reasonable option if Scrivener for iOS doesn’t support external folder sync. To clear up one thing, there is no way we could ever really add that—at least not unless Apple gives up on the whole “phone apps” roots of their OS and brings a normal file system that a...

Re: Can you modify the default CSS Stylesheet? How to?

In coming across another of your posts , it seems you are compiling, and using the ePub option for export? If so, you need to edit the compile Format and visit the CSS pane to make your changes. If by “Default CSS Stylesheet” you are referring to the contents of the default column itself, there is n...

Re: Validation CSS Stylesheet Error Heading2 & Subheading "1.08rem" failing preflight of ePub

Which ePub validation tool are you using? The only time I’ve seen an error like this was in older version of Sigil, which lacked ePub3 support and thus CSS3 support. The root-em unit, ‘rem’ , is not recognised by the older validator Sigil used. The modern version handles ePub3 and its component form...

Re: Background of pdf in dark theme

Whatever voodoo pdf-expert did to get that done in a pleasing way, they would need to donate their results to Apple, and then Apple would have to agree it is a good idea, and then integrate it into their PDF display engine, which Scrivener, Quick Look, DEVONthink and thousands of other Mac programs ...

Re: Can you modify the default CSS Stylesheet? How to?

What is the “default CSS stylesheet” you are referring to in this case? There are a several places where CSS comes into export and compile. Do you mean for example, how to change the CSS for Pandoc generated ebook files? Probably not, as most people do not even have Pandoc installed, but that’s one ...

Re: Saved styles only save font size sometimes

I am not sure what they are talking about, either. There is no database in Scrivener to rebuild, for one thing, and no indexing or other systems that would need to be rebuilt in relation to styles. The only thing that can be rebuilt, and sometimes needs to be, is the search index. Nothing to do with...

Re: Befuddled with styles / Microsoft Word

Yes, to confirm, this is all wired up correctly in the beta now. You should be able to assign “Heading #” styles to headings, and apply “Body” (or whatever you need) to body text. As to whether that actually exports an outline correctly is another matter. In examining the RTF files at the code level...

Re: Filtering search result documents

The search option to only “Search Within Binder Selection” could be another tool for what you’re trying to do, if you have multiple works in the same Draft folder. The selection, for the purposes of how this option works, includes everything below that level as well. So you only need select the one ...

Re: Project Template size

Open Project ▸ Project Settings... , click on the Background Images section. The “Choose from disk” option actually imports the image into the project rather...

Re: [LH4616] Keyword Search does not work anymore

Thanks for spotting this. The bug was very easy to reproduce and has been written up. By the way, I should add that you don't have to use any marker syntax to keep keywords distinct, unless you really want to. The Project Search feature is capable of only searching within specific data sets if that ...
