Re: Layout challenge — is what I want possible without scary LaTeX?

Yes, starting from scratch this may seem quite daunting... :shock: — from my perspective it is fairly straight-forward plumbing, but I just can't guarantee any time spend on this.

Re: Looking for advice about using Scrivener for writing a scientific PhD thesis

I personally think Pandoc adds substantial added value over MMD alone. In particular, direct support of DOCX (many supervisors and editors still use Word...) and full bibliographic support in any output format for a thesis is worth it alone. The MMD or Pandoc workflows are very similar, both work be...

Re: Layout challenge — is what I want possible without scary LaTeX?

I'm short on time, but off the top of my head, you could use Scrivener > Pandoc > Tufte, generating something like: https://rstudio.github.io/tufte/ Tufte layout is very similar, using sidenotes. R Markdown uses Pandoc, so they've done the work of making Pandoc + Tufte style sidenotes in LaTeX work....

Re: MathType equations compiling to MS Word as images

Then I can compile Multimarkdown to LaTex, and then use pandoc to convert LaTex to docx. Does that sounds right? Not exactly. I use Scrivener's Styles to transform editor styles to Pandoc flavoured Markdown (Scrivener calls it 'Multimarkdown', but actually supports Pandoc directly ). Pandoc convert...

Re: MathType equations compiling to MS Word as images

Have you tried playing with the new converters in the Preferences (disabled by default, you can try to see if it helps): https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=56863 — if it doesn't work perhaps it is a feature Keith may consider to add as he is developing? How about expor...

Re: Compiling markdown creates .MD FILE in some cases, but a FOLDER in other cases

Yes, the new location is ~/.local/share/pandoc although the older ~/.pandoc is also still supported. If you are getting an error it is probably because you are specifying it using the -y option in the compile post-processing pane, something like: "<$inputfile>" -l -v -y "pandocomatic....

Re: Compiling markdown creates .MD FILE in some cases, but a FOLDER in other cases

As you probably surmised in the other thread, _mmd and -mmd are hard-coded into Scrivener so that it retains the existing folder structure. I'd also prefer a compile setting for this, but it isn't a major issue for me and I don't mind the suffix as a solution. Off-topic, but it is better in the long...

Re: beginner to MMD and LaTeX: looking for advice for incorporating into existing Scrivener 3/Papers 3 academic workflow

I've also had some back and forth with the creator of pandocomatic which further added to your recommendations. Yes, Huub is great and takes user needs and recommendations seriously, this was also the reason I originally settled on pandocomatic. You don't need a Pandoc "manager" like pand...

Re: Test Scrivener's New .docx Converters

OK makes sense! Exiftool doesn't show what the JPEG compression is either, and what I gleaned online is this is not part of the JFIF spec to store this info at all. It probably doesn't matter too much anyway as JPEG is lossy, so whenever a 75% JPEG is saved again at 75%, it will always gradually bec...

Re: Test Scrivener's New .docx Converters

It gets weirder when you trying the same to the attached project, which has the same image embedded in different ways. If you examine the images and <w:drawing> info in the unzipped exported Word file, you'll see that the images are both 72dpi with the same dimensions, the size given in <w:drawing>...

Re: Test Scrivener's New .docx Converters

nontroppo - I can't reproduce this on my end. Are you using any of the resizing or scaling options in the Compile options, for instance the option to scale the image to the page width? Could you provide a sample project? Thanks. Actually I didn't see this compile setting before so was turned off......

For everyone who uses LaTeX, just a heads up that MacTeX 2019 has been released: http://www.tug.org/mactex/index.html — the general changelog is here: http://www.tug.org/mactex/newfeatures.html — the biggest change is that UTF8 is finally the default encoding! I always prefer to use the minimal inst...
