Re: Not using folders as chapters

Going back to the initial question: will having chapters in documents cause a problem on compile to ebook?

The answer is no. There is no need to have chapters as folders or in folders.

Re: Stage Play / Radio Play - Page break with dialogue

In the Script element settings there is an advanced option 'try to keep with next paragraph'. That is intended to prevent such widows and orphans. I have just tried applying that setting to the Character style in a Radio play format. I turned Page View on and with all my tinkering I have been unable...

Re: Create links for referenced images in MMD

So far as I can see, the answer is 'probably not' (as ever, Ioa can give a definitive answer). Any link would have to go in the resource details, after the filename. I've tried a few things and I can get this syntax to be processed through to HTML: ![Image caption][limagelabel] [imagelabel]: imagefi...

Re: Marked for Windows?

There are Windows-based Markdown editors out there, which will preview the markdown document being worked on, but there doesn't seem to be anything like Marked, which is a previewer, not an editor.

There might be something on this list which would help: http://alternativeto.net/software/marked/

Re: MMD > LaTeX: All of a sudden issues with footnotes

Is this change affecting previously entered text, or just new text?

Can you post a real example of the misbehaving text?

Re: Inspector as floating window, normal mode

On the mac go open the Preferences dialogue: the font setting for project notes is halfway down the Formatting tab. As Scokar noted, the change in font will only be applied to new notes.

You can apply a font to an existing note: select the text then Cmd+T to bring up the Font dialogue.

Re: Inspector as floating window, normal mode

I'd like to come back to the original question: can I open the inspector as a floating panel? 'Well, no, but, yes, but sort of' would be my answer. It is true that the inspector will not float, so document notes are forever trapped in the inspector. However, Project notes can be viewed either in the...

Re: Macro to do multiple edits

Here is my very grumpy and nasty answer (which is much further along Katherine's road). At the moment they have no incentive to sort out their grammar and punctuation: a kindly elf is doing it for them while they sleep. They need an incentive to address this, so: ⋅ It is not your job to so...

Re: Text color & compiling with latex

In the compile dialogue one of the sections is 'replacements'. You can define the replacements there, on either a whole project level, or for a particular compile route (e.g. MMD-->latex). If you are only ever going to latex you might as well set them as a project level replacement.

Re: Text color & compiling with latex

I'm not aware of anything in MMD which would let you specify a text colour and carry that through to latex. The hack you have described is where I would start. However, I would go one step further and set up a bespoke compile replacement. For example, I could set >>$@<< to be replaced with <!-- \tex...

Re: Moving around in Split Screen

You could load all your notes documents as one multiple selection into one pane, then have your first text document in the other pane. You would then change your text document as you go on, but just scroll down the notes pane. To make selecting notes even easier you could use metadata labels to set ...

Re: MMD>Latex - Custom section tags - Abstract, Bibliography etc

I'll leave Ioa to respond on custom metadata.

This may be a grandmother egg sucking tutorial, but if you set the abstract document to 'compile as is' you won't get a standard title and label for the document in the MMD-generated tex file, just the hand-crafted \begin{abstract}.

Re: How to get Scrivener Scratch Pad on iPhone and iPad

This is a very useful workflow. Thanks. I use DEVONthink for the majority of my note taking and for notes on subjects which have yet to become projects, but I have struggled slightly when I want to make a note on something which has its own Scrivener project file. This method lets me take a note on ...

Re: Compile MMD-->Latex

If you are using the mmd additional latex files, then you should store them, and any other latex input files in library/texmf/tex/latex/mmd/ The bibtex file should go in library/texmf/bibtex/bib/ (nothing special there) For images, if you include those in your Scrivener project – either as images dr...

Re: Lost data after synching

Have you tried clicking on the 'binder' tab in the yellow area on the left?

Currently it looks as if you are only viewing your updated documents, rather than the binder.
