Re: I want arrows…

Xetex is a good way forward. I've been using it for years to get Mac fonts in my documents. The main things I had to change in TexShop preferences: Typesetting tab: The Default command is set to Command listed below , which is XeLaTeX . In the Misc tab: The personal script Tex Program is set to xete...

Re: I want arrows…

If this is a one-off preamble command, then I would add it to one of the MMD tex support files – possibly mmd-memoir-packages.tex. If, however, this is a recurring command you need every time you need an arrow then the simplest thing is to enclose the code in Scrivener with the comment markers, whic...

Re: Varying some material in the Custom LaTeX preamble

Have a look at my beginner's guide to ScML: http://literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=17239 That explains how to set up the MMD support files (which you'll need to get from github), and the order in which they call each other. Also, what to put in the metadata pane of the compile ...

Re: Varying some material in the Custom LaTeX preamble

Pretty much what I was going to suggest. Using the LaTeX input command as Ioa suggests is the best way forward. Once you start down that road you might want to look at going as far as using meta data to input a series of tex files, rather than putting all the latex header/preamble into Scrivener. Th...

Re: Multi Screen Capability

If you have two screens then you can configure Scrivener to use your secondary screen for the full screen view. That enables you to have one document open full screen, and also have the binder, split panes and the inspector open on the other. Potentially, that is three documents at once, or one docu...

Re: Text Card Visibility Option?

It strikes me you are describing the 'include in compile' setting, with an additional viewing option on the binder. You could achieve a similar effect by viewing the outliner, with the 'include in compile' column showing. Alternatively, you could: ⋅ Rename the project labels to progress an...

Re: Bibliography doesn't show up when directly exporting to PDF

It sounds like you've hit the limit of the straightforward MMD to PDF compile. That compile option doesn't go round the compile circle enough times to sort out the bibliography and citations. As the Scrivener manual explains: 22.5.7 PDF (via LaTeX) [Standard Version] The PDF output choice utilises t...

Re: Fountain Conversion within a document?

Have you tried using Marked to get a live preview? Marked previews markdown and multimarkdown in Scrivener projects. It can also handle fountain files. Perhaps it will preview fountain in Scrivener projects. I haven't tried it as I write stage plays rather than film script.

Re: Auto-numbering for MultiMarkdown

The issue with the <$hn> tags giving 1.1 for your first level of heading is down to the set up of your binder. I have done a few experiments on this, and provided the top level folder being compiled is at level 1 in the binder, then it gets numbered as 1, and subsidiary folders/documents get 1.1 and...

Re: Auto-numbering for MultiMarkdown

Hmmm. If you are compiling to MMD then you really don't need to use the auto number tags. In the compile dialogue format pane each level of document should have its #, ## and ### header levels set. The compile picks that up for each document, depending on its position in the hierarchy. And on the au...

Re: Convert bold and italic when compiling

I don't think there is. The convert option does its best, but is not fool-proof and the result needs to be checked before compiling. The problem is that the original rich text bold and italic codes may not fall exactly at the start and ends of words, so what may look like: A word in bold among other...

Re: Some questions about Scrivener > MMD

About this arrow: does the --> turn into a proper arrow (one character) or an em dash followed by an angle bracket? Also, at what point does this happen? I'm presuming it's at some point in the compile process. What follows is speculation. So, looking at your original post, you had the latex escapin...

The day of the Big Box

The big box arrived yesterday: BookBoxSmall.jpg At last, the transformation from pdf proofs to a printed, hold-in-your-hand book. The second edition process was different from the first, with some unpicking of the text of the first edition before I could weave in the new stuff, all the time wonderin...

Re: incorporating images used in latex preamble

The following works for full compile and then typesetting in latex: I don't know if it works for the quick pdf compile (it may depend on which mmd helper files Scrivener uses for the direct to pdf compile). Where you have a logo called in one of your latex input files, such as mmd-memoir-header.tex,...
