Re: Quick Notes entry from outside the app

It seems the focus is on somehow doing this while projects are closed, but the OP doesn't stipulate that as a constraint. For snipping text into open projects, there are macOS Services, which Scrivener has a number of different options for. With these you can send text from just about anywhere, to t...

Re: Update prompts to restart

To clarify my comment, I was thinking of this in terms of rebooting the whole machine, not simply restarting the software. That is always necessary when performing an update to the software, for obvious reasons. But as to restarting when changing certain preferences, yeah that's a thing. They've don...

Re: Is there a way to import multiple icons at once?

Inside your main project folder (the one ending in .scriv), you will find an "Icons" subfolder. If you've already imported a few icons, you'll find them here, but you can always create that folder yourself and drag in however many you want using Explorer. In some ways, this may even be a b...

Re: Update prompts to restart

I just ran the updater through Linux/Wine, and Windows native, and I didn't get a restart prompt with either. So I'd agree with devinganger; could be a peculiarity of your setup that triggered an unnecessary prompt?

Re: Linking to external files, as opposed to copying & importing

This is an old thread in the Windows area of the board, and it appears you are a Mac user. In your case, you should refer to §9.2, Linking to Research Material, pg. 198 of the user manual PDF.

Re: Random Page Breaks in Compile

Something else I would try is disabling Avoid widows and orphans in the Text Layout compile format pane. Perhaps you are hitting an edge case with that which isn’t working in an optimum fashion.

Re: Unusual title prefix

To make one correction, regular expressions (and simpler string matching) can absolutely be done during the compile process, in a non-destructive way on the source text, and upon a certain degree of material generated by the compiler as well, such as heading text, separators, etc. Replacements and p...

Re: Feedback for https://www.tablesgenerator.com LaTeX tables generator?

Have you tried LyX? From a glance, its table editor seems to be slightly more comprehensive, and with the code pane open you can easily copy and paste the result out. Plus it is open source and offline, so no pesky issues with using it to create tables with proprietary data or whatever.

Re: Cross-reference throwing error when typesetting to LaTeX

On the compile options “Document Title Links” screen, I’d read somewhere about checking the options to “Update titles in document links with prefix and suffix settings” and for “Links use title prefixes only (exclude titles and suffixes)”. Ah yeah, that would normally be good advice if you’re not u...

Re: Document notes

Since your forum tag says “Windows” and you refer to “References” (a feature which has been changed to “Bookmarks” since then), I wanted to make sure you were in the right section of the forum—the macOS tech support area? That aside, the answer to your question is largely the same since it is a rath...

Re: Cross-reference throwing error when typesetting to LaTeX

Okay! It helps to know you are using LaTeX, as that is a different way of using Scrivener than the “word processor” way, which is largely what I was describing above. The fundamental use of hyperlinks is the same, but with the LaTeX template the mechanics of a cross-reference are configured with the...

Re: Cross Referencing a Chapter in Scrivener 3

Hello, welcome to Scrivener! I’d say the basics for this are pretty simple: drag the thing that represents your chapter from the binder into the editor to create a hyperlink to it, and when you compile that should be all you need (especially if you’re starting from one of the default templates). It ...

Re: Compiling to mmd / HTML with /images folder

Yes, since this thread was started, there are better ways to handle the problem than manual post-processing, though the fundamentals will be the same (create a subfolder, move the images, bulk search and replace the references in the .md file). You will need to use the regular “MultiMarkdown” select...

Re: Custom size notes

Having some familiarity with the concept, I would say Scrivener is way more suitable to that technique than Scapple. :) The concept of having a “box of index cards” so to speak, doesn’t pair well I don’t think with a tool that helps us write out thoughts for what could be described as a single “card...
