Re: How to format Front Matter for Compiling?

OK, thank you, Katherine. For now I'm going to mock it up in a PDF editor, since I really want lower case Roman numerals for the page numbers in the Front Matter.

Re: How to format Front Matter for Compiling?

I finally got rid of the header on the title page by choosing "No header or footer on Single Pages." This is not a practical solution, however. I have other front matter—maps, character lists, etc.—and I want to be able to customize the page settings for each Section Layout. For instance, ...

Re: How to format Front Matter for Compiling?

Under Page Settings, there is an item "Main body header and footer starts…" and it is set to After Front Matter. It is greyed out and can't be changed. But it's set at what I need it to be set at! And yet it doesn't work. It's making the header and footer show up in the front matter.

Re: How to format Front Matter for Compiling?

you just don't need to use the Front Matter capabilities to do it. The Front Matter feature is relatively complex I read the manual. I do want Front Matter for my title page. (It might have more pages after it.) The Page Settings area has an item "Different Header and Footer for back matter&qu...

Re: How to format Front Matter for Compiling?

You do need to differentiate the single page, you just don't need to use the Front Matter capabilities to do it. I really don't understand this. My front page (my title page) has completely different formatting from the manuscript. The choices for Section Type in the Compile opening panel on the ri...

Re: How to format Front Matter for Compiling?

I can't get a handle on the Section Layouts at all. Every time I make a change to one (like adding page numbers), it makes that change to all of them, even when I have "Use Project page settings" turned off. I'll have to read the manual again. It's been four months and I've forgotten every...

Re: How to format Front Matter for Compiling?

Define the page break as being *before* the thing that comes after the front matter. Incidentally, there's no requirement that you use the front matter feature. If all you have is a single page, it's just as easy to put it in the appropriate location in the Binder. Katherine OK, I used a format for...

How to format Front Matter for Compiling?

I don't understand the presets in the area for choosing the format of the Front Matter for purposes of Compiling. Some of the preset formats have a page break, but it's always BEFORE the Front Matter (at the top of template). I want a page break AFTER the Front Matter (as my "Front Matter"...

Re: Opened v2 project in v3...why so many "Recovered Files"?

Thanks, Katherine. > If you haven't noticed missing material before now, most of the recovered files are probably older versions that you can safely discard. That's the case, yes. Most are long-ago penned passages I recognize that can be safely deleted. Some, however, are alternate drafts of passage...

Opened v2 project in v3...why so many "Recovered Files"?

I'm working on migrating from Scrivener v2 to v3. When I open my main project, a novel I've been working on for a few years, in v3, I get 36 "Recovered Files," with dates ranging all the way back to October 8, 2016. Is this normal for the upgrading of a v2 project to v3 to result in so man...

Re: Simple upgrade question re v3 and iOS

Thanks, Katherine. Yes, I have the upgrade guide. Am using it to learn about Compiling, mainly. I’ll take another look re installation issues.

Simple upgrade question re v3 and iOS

When I migrate my project(s) from v2 to v3 (after installing v3 on my Mac), will it still sync properly with my iOS devices (via Dropbox)? I am running iOS Scrivener version 1.1.5 on both my iPhone and iPad. I just want to make sure of this before I load the real (non-test versions) of my novel into...

Re: Bookmarks Don't appear in menu unless document being read

What you are attempting to do is something the software can do My sense is that what I need might be somewhere in Chapter 18 of the Manual ("Annotations and Footnotes"), but that I will have to read the entire thing to figure out if what I need is there. Your post has led me in the right ...

Re: Completely confused about "Project Notes" aka "Notes"

How were you working around this in v2? Your OP was about Project Notes, and somehow morphed to a discussion of the challenges you have with tracking many characters. (I am in a similar boat, and am still fumbling my way toward how to do this.) Were you somehow using Project Notes to accomplish it ...

Re: Completely confused about "Project Notes" aka "Notes"

If I've read this correctly: you understand that you can now make a 'bookmark' which points to any particular document/group in the binder (ie Document Bookmarks, as Katherine describes), but you also want to 'bookmark' a specific location within a document — a phrase or a line half way through a s...
