Stop page break after front matter?

It seems that a page break is forced after front matter no matter what I try in the compile settings. Is this true? Is there any way NOT to break the page after the content designated as front matter? (Short story manuscripts tend to have the front matter at the top, then a few carriage returns, and...

Re: Selecting (or unselecting) a folder and all child pages in compile

Answering my own question here, but I did find the Compile dropdown on the left pane... so ignore this question!

(But I'm about to post another one... don't ignore that one!)

Selecting (or unselecting) a folder and all child pages in compile

In the compile screen, is there a way to quickly select a folder and all its children? I have a Scrivener project for short stories, with the following hierarchy: FOLDER: Story Title 1 ---PAGE: Scene ---PAGE: Scene FOLDER: Story Title 2 ---PAGE: Scene I know I can Alt+Click to select/deselect all, b...

Re: Restart page numbering in header

I know that you can excuse Front Matter, but I also have a cover page, which is what I'm considering Front Matter right now. I don't want the Introduction to be part of the Front Matter, because I *do* want it to be numbered... just separately than the Manuscript proper.

Re: Scrivener on the iPad?

That sounds great, Keith. Glad to hear it's coming along!

If you ever need a beta tester for it -- although I know that's hard to do on iPads -- keep me in mind!

Scrivener on the iPad?

I vaguely remember hearing something about development of a Scrivener app for iOS, but I didn't pay much attention because I didn't have an iOS device at the time. Now I do, though, and I'm curious to know if there's been any more news about this. I did a quick search, but it doesn't seem like aythi...

Re: Page Break Compile Error (PDF)

I did a bit more experimenting, and it seems that the problem is caused by having multiple blank spaces in the "Chapter One" folder: I'd like the "Chapter One" heading to appear halfway down the page, so I added in about ten blank lines. Those screw up the compiler, and I get the...

Page Break Compile Error (PDF)

Hi. I have a dummy document I'm using as a template, and for some reason, when I compile as a PDF, the chapter heading for Chapter One appears at the bottom of the title page, which should, of course, be blank except for the title and byline. I have the title page, set as a folder, situated within a...

Re: "This file is not a valid Scrivener file."

I was running 1.2, I think, and updating it seemed to fix the problem. That's bizarre, though; these files worked fine last night, but after I installed Dropbox on the Lenovo, something went amiss.

In any case, thanks a bunch! You saved me oodles of time and a lot of heartache. :)

"This file is not a valid Scrivener file."

So, I use both Scriveners for Windows and for PC, and I use Dropbox and SkyDrive to bridge the gap between computers. I just got a new Lenovo Yoga today, and as I was installing Dropbox and SkyDrive something went haywire. Whenever I try to open a .scrivx file on my Windows machines -- a process tha...

Re: Using Dropbox (or similar)

I've been using Scrivener for PC and Scrivener for Mac with the same Scrivener files via Dropbox pretty successfully for about two months now, since NaNoWriMo ended last year. I've only had one hiccup, which came about because I opened up the project on both machines at the same time (by accident). ...

Re: Unicode support?

ETA: I found out that I can use the substitutions option in Scrivener, so that I can simply have '.s' turn into ṡ, etc... but I'd still rather use the unicode options. Is there any way to make alt+x activate the unicode transformation in Scrivener, or am I effed?

Unicode support?

If I type 1E61 then Alt+x in Word, I get ṡ ('s' with a dot above it). If I type the same thing in Scrivener, I get 1E61x, as if the alt-key were ignored. Is there any way to enter Unicode symbols in Scrivener? I write fantasy, and a language I created relies heavily on characters that aren't easy to...

Re: Using both Mac and Windows versions

I'm mostly worried about formatting sync issues. I'm a bit on the OCD side, so if every scene isn't formatted the same way, etc., I get a tad panicked. I've done a bit of cursory exploration, and it seems okay, but I was hoping for some second opinions. I use Dropbox, too, but I don't do anything sp...

Using both Mac and Windows versions

I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but has anyone had any experience using the same Scrivener project in both the Windows and the Mac versions of the program? I have both a Windows desktop and a Macbook Air that I'd like to use for the same project... one day in Windows, the next day in M...
