Re: Latest Catalina beta doing something visually weird to Scrivener

Scrivener looks fine to me on build 19A558d — and yes they completely reverted iCloud system code back to the Mojave version to fix major sync issues, and catastrophic data loss (even installing a beta on the iPhone wiped files in an unrecoverable way from desktop machines): https://mjtsai.com/blog/...

Re: Apple New York Font for Scrivener?

Does this not install for you, it worked when I tried it out (in Textedit so should also work in Scrivener) before quickly uninstalling it : https://developer.apple.com/design/downloads/NY-Font.dmg For anyone else, I really wouldn't bother <subjective-opinion-of-a-font-nerd-alert> It is IMO both poo...

Re: Looking to create info/tip/warning boxes

An example below (excuse the typo, I don't have much time), where scrivener styles automagically become info/warning boxes in HTML and DOCX. This is all automatic from compile, I have not tweaked anything. For LaTeX, it could also be done automatically, but would need a very simple pandoc filter to ...

Re: Looking to create info/tip/warning boxes

If you want it to be flexible, then I really do think you will benefit from using Pandoc and its custom containers which support custom output to HTML / DOCX / EPUB / LaTeX / Others without any fussing. A brief introduction can be found here: https://github.com/iandol/scrivomatic#how-to-use-custom-s...

Re: Beta 20: Better font rendering

The original example in post 3 by Daniel shows other problems, which are potentially better explained by another typographical term: kerning — where the relative space between individual letter pairs are optimised for legibility. This normally depends on Opentype kern tables embedded in the fonts th...

Re: Keep imported word file as .doc or .docx

The original document (maybe it has complicated layout, pending track changes, whatever Scrivener doesn’t support). This is my major reason at least (I get many DOCXs with the most baroque table layouts imaginable, commented and tracked, they totally break when converted and cannot be used as inten...

Re: Keep imported word file as .doc or .docx

I use aliases for most tasks and they are really great (I love how quicklook gets you great views of the content, especially Excel spreadsheets). But, because I try to use Scrivener projects as one-ring-to-bind-them "repositories", that I can move about without worrying about aliases, ther...

Re: nvALT replacement?

...and for some reason FSN will not respect my choice of colour for text background. I like to use solarised when I can, and nvALT allows me to do that. I like being able to see the tags for my files, too. nvAlt is still great if it is working for you! 8) Just as a FYI, to change background colour ...

Re: nvALT replacement?

I used to use MM Composer, and certainly don't mind it, but I actually switched to Visual Studio Code for almost all my text/markdown/latex/ruby/etc editing. It is amazing how good the extensions are for these... I just would never have imagined I would be pleasurably using and recommending a Micros...

FSNotes — I fully switched last year from NVAlt after I had stability issues with NVAlt. FSNotes is open-source for macOS though also has App store versions for mac and iOS (I bought both and sync between them is flawless across iPhones, iPads and Macbooks).

Re: Scrivomatic docx poorly formated

Quite simple to solve, your paragraphs are all indented: Screenshot 2019-07-09 at 13.12.03.png Remove the indents and compile is fine: Screenshot 2019-07-09 at 13.13.22.png Now the question is where these indents are coming in — you should make sure "Show Invisibles" is turned ON in Scrive...

Hm, ⌥␣ and ⌥↹ both work for replacements for me, but you cannot see them in the dialog, unless you select and you can see empty space selection:

Re: compile to docx using scrivomatic

Yes, so pandocomatic is running fine, but it cannot parse the metadata to extract the template name so is using the default. Can you show us the top part of your compiled MD file, I suspect there is an issue there. Problems with metadata can occur when, e.g. Scrivener auto capitalises "pandocom...
