Re: Images, Labels, MMD, Latex

Ioa,

Is there anyway of controlling the size of the image using the built-in method you describe?

I usually end up adjusting the widths of screenshots to get them to sit on the page.

Re: Images, Labels, MMD, Latex

The standard MMD references don't work cleanly with Latex to let you refer to the image elsewhere. Try the following pattern: ![The Stone Rubble Site, viewed from the west. Large stones and expansive artifact debris defined the site.][MiddenStone] [MiddenStone]: MiddenStone width=150px (Put the Scri...

Re: Copy of Manuscript for backup

Select the manuscript folder, then 'Duplicate'. That will give a copy of the folder and all its contents. You can the move the duplicate copy to the Research folder.

Re: How to create a list of tagged subheadings?

Collections do display as flat lists without hierarchy, but the file order is preserved. As you are looking at a set of pieces the lack of hierarchy shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Re: How to create a list of tagged subheadings?

If I've followed you, there's a stack of discrete instruction sets scattered in your documents which you want to be able to gather and review at different stages through the project. At the moment you have these as parts of longer sections. If I were tackling this I would split my text up a lot into...

Didn't I say Ioa would have a funky way of doing it?

Re: Image included but not inline in Scrivener project

Ioa probably has a funky way of doing this, but I would: ⋅ Compile to latex. ⋅ Find the folder containing the .tex folder. ⋅ Create a pics folder inside that .tex folder and copy the images into it. ⋅ Typeset. When you come to re-compile it should leave your i...

Re: What makes for a great sounding synopsis?

I drafted this, then hesitated to post, and now I'm posting, because, well, you asked. I'm afraid I don't understand the relationships: if it's Savannah and Jacob, where does Jeremy come into this? And I don't understand the timescales: is the eight years after the seven years, or running concurrent...

Re: Struggling controlling images MMD > LaTeX

You won't be able to do this 'out of the box', as getting an image onto a title page requires a bit of fiddling with latex. One way to do it is to use the \title command to define what the title should contain, then use the \maketitle command to place it in the finished document (all that needs to c...

Re: Checkboxes for title, synopsis, text for each document

Ah, that's interesting, as I am looking for something similar myself. I am working on a non-fiction book which includes figures and tables. Each figure or table has its own document, which includes the figure number and title in the text, so I don't want to include the document title in the compile ...

Re: Convert bold and italic when compiling

"Find by Formatting" will highlight where the italicized or bolded region begins and ends, allowing you to check for errors. (Works especially well with "show invisibles" turned on.) Yes, you have to know to do this, but that's true with "Preserve Formatting" too: noth...

Re: Convert bold and italic when compiling

Is it that Scrivener converts 'preserve formatting' settings on the way to MMD compile, or that it just ignores them along with any other rtf formatting? Speaking personally (and with no affiliation to Scrivener other than hanging round on these forums), I would rather live with the certainty of kno...

Re: insert non-breaking space that carries through in LaTex

You could go with the ~ latex non-break space character, just using the symbol in the text, then using a replacement to convert ~ to <!--~--> at compile. That wouldn't disrupt your text very much. Alternatively, you could go the whole way and load French language support using the babel package: \us...

Re: Scrivener - MMD 3 - Latex: A beginner's guide

I've got mine in: c:\Local TeX Files\tex\latex\mmd

Depending on your set up you may need to define that folder as a known path for your Latex program.

Re: Binder Structure Errors in ScML

It probably isn't 'compile as is': I wouldn't expect to see the heading at all. I notice that there's something going on a little further up, with the previous sub-subheading 'pseudo code' getting the same escaping. I'd suggest just compiling to MMD and having a look at what that is doing with the h...
