Re: Scrivener Win (2.9.9.7 beta) - Scrivomatic

A small update: I have now tested using Powershell and WSL, and in Powershell, pandocomatic can process Scrivener output using a full range of filters and templates just fine. Scrivomatic requires WSL, but also works fine. I ran into one impossible-to-solve Powershell+pandocomatic bug that affected ...

Re: Is there a quick way to write an exponential number in Scrivener?

No worries! I also agree that the ergonomics of "Emoji & Symbols" really is not great, it hasn't really been designed to be keyboard accesible or easily adapts to your preferences. If you go to System Prefs >Accessibility > Keyboard > Panel Editor... you can customise toolbars for the ...

Re: Scrivener post-processing with pandoc/scrivomatic

OK, well I've managed to get Pandoc and pandocomatic working in both Powershell / cmd and WSL. I tried to get the post-processing working in the latest Scrivener beta, but whether I use relative or absolute paths I cannot seem to trigger the post-processing tool. I tried to create a record by redire...

Re: Is there a quick way to write an exponential number in Scrivener?

My numerical memory is pretty good so I used to remember quite a few unicode hex codes, but snippet and keyboard tools like bettertouchtool and Alfred made my brain lazy and I now only occasionally remember unicode codepoints... :? Another nerdy trick if you haven't seen it is that you can reveal th...

Re: Is there a quick way to write an exponential number in Scrivener?

I write lots of exponential numbers (p = 1.5 × ⁻¹⁴) and I normally use unicode characters for this (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_subscripts_and_superscripts). This means it is universal (copy and paste to other apps justs works) and "semantically" correct. It needs a font that has...

Re: Why is the Compile process so impossibly complicated (read = useless) now?

Using software is often like reading a book or admiring a painting, no two views are exactly the same. But it does seem clear that the biggest complaints we see on the forum for Compile-V3 is from users of V2. Learning can be hard, but unlearning is much harder. So I think we (meaning other users) g...

Re: Scrivener Win (2.9.9.7 beta) - Scrivomatic

Pandoc does work, only Scrivener does not except its commands You say Scrivener, but do you mean scrivomatic? So, I had a quick test with Windows 10 — I used scoop to install ruby and pandoc and then gem to install pandocomatic. I symlinked my pandoc data directory files to c:\Users\name\AppData\Ro...

Re: ARM

There’s a whole swathe of stuff in Scrivener that just could not be translated to iOS - if Scrivener were to remain as it is, and keep the features it has. ... Such an app would also need to eschew a lot of features that would not work well across platforms, too, radically simplifying in the same w...

Re: Scrivener post-processing on Windows with pandoc/scrivomatic

This thread is in the wrong forum, the most appropriate forum is Beta testing... For Windows nerds, it seems that there is impressive interoperability for WSL: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/interop — this would aid the maintenance of cross-platform post-processing tools between macOS ...

Re: Scrivener Win (2.9.9.7 beta) - Scrivomatic

There are two separate issues here, the first is whether Win Scrivener can run a post-processing script and what the environment will be that it runs in; this is a beta question so I think the crosspost should be where we follow that up. The second question is about your workflow independent of Scri...

Re: Scrivener Win (2.9.9.7 beta) - Scrivomatic

Yes, I'm almost certain that this is a path problem, as scrivomatic searches for several other tools (like rbenv, homebrew etc) to ensure it adds all the correct location to the path to ensure pandocomatic and pandoc run. All paths assume a posix like OS, and Windows is certainly not. The other pote...

Re: Scrivener Support for Reference Managers (Zotero, Endnote, Mendeley, etc)

When you use temporary citations in Scrivener, you can easily automate your route back to that reference with 3rd party software. It is as easy as double-clicking an {ID} in Scrivener and hitting a hotkey, et voila. We [plural] do use Scrivener for academic writing alongside reference managers and h...

Re: refer to page number using scrivomatic / pandoc

Wow, what an elegant solution from AmberV!!! 8) At least in my version of Word, you will need to "Update Fields" to see them but it works great. And Scrivener's solution means you can use a different Compile format down the road if you need to output to other formats like HTML or LaTeX. A ...
