Re: Previewing a post in Marked

I'm not clear from your post what you are opening with Marked2 as you mention compiling.

I may have misunderstood you, but the compile options are just used as a quick way to set the 'include in compile'. Once that's done you work with the Scrivener project in Marked2.

Re: XML Output Error

The usual procedure for tracking down an error through the compile process is to keep re-compiling, omitting documents from the compile until the error doesn't happen. You can then find the document with the problem, and – hopefully – work out what the problem was. A similar approach might be useful...

Re: Fenced code snippets

The mmd (and md) syntax for in-line code is to use one pair of back-tick quotes: `code in here` gives: <p><code>code in here</code></p> For a code block, indent each line by one tab or four spaces: code block by indent gives: <pre><code>code block by indent </code></pre> I'd not come across the mult...

Re: MMD to PDF

This is a result of using the standard MMD latex support files as they are installed with Scrivener. You need to modify one of the support files to remove the boiler plate text. The safest way to do this is to install a set of the latex support files to your library and modify them there. Scrivener ...

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

Sorry, only just spotted this query. I don't know if you need to do much to sort out A4 if you've declared it with the document class. The only thing I wanted to change was the margin settings, which in the standard 8.5x11 were too wide for my liking. I renamed a copy of the mmd-memoir-layout-8.5x11...

Re: Footnotes, references, markdown, and Word .doc

Within Scrivener, you could try to compile mmd --> Flat XML (.fodt), which would open in OpenOffice and its variants. From there you could save as word for your final sweep. Alternatively, and this is adding an extra step (and piece of paid-for software – MultiMarkdown Composer): ⋅ Compile...

Re: Compile MMD

Given that you have Marked (and hopefully Marked2), my first suggestion is that you open your project in Scrivener and also open it in Marked. That will give you a live preview of what you should get on compile. If you have Scrivener on its default autosave setting then the preview will refresh ever...

Re: Meta data ordering in MMD-->Latex compile

I don't know if this makes it more weird or less weird, but the strange re-ordering of meta-data has stopped just as abruptly as it started.

If it ever happens again I'll push the project your way, but for the moment there's nothing to see.

Re: SCRIVENER NOVEL EDITOR

That is quite a list.

But item 7 is partly do-able with Marked, an app which – among many useful things – can give you a preview of your Scrivener project with repeated words highlighted. You can set it to catch repetition through the whole document or just in paragraphs.

Re: Meta data ordering in MMD-->Latex compile

Well, call me Weirdy McWeird. I created a compile pre-set on the alphabetised meta-data list (called meta-weird). Applied that to a new project. The compile dialogue picks up and uses the pre-set. In the new project I shoved the meta-data into the right order. Saved that as a pre-set (meta-resolve)....

Re: Meta data ordering in MMD-->Latex compile

On investigation, it looks to be just the one project (which is a relief). So, what's the difference between that project and the others? Well, the only thing is that I have a couple of search-based collections set up and used for filtering during compile. But I don't see any reason why that should ...

Meta data ordering in MMD-->Latex compile

Is it just me, or is it really the case that meta data keys in the Meta-Data pane of the Compile dialogue are being automatically sorted into alphabetical order? I arrange the keys as: ⋅ Latex input ⋅ author ⋅ title ⋅ base header level ⋅ Latex input....

Re: How to write LaTeX directly inside Scrivener?

The simplest solution to this problem is addressed here: http://literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=19269 In summary, don't try to adjust the header of the Scrivener doc, but put the latex into the text, with HTML escaping: <!-- latex --> Then, compile that file 'as is' so the Scri...

Re: LaTeX & ePub

Using compile replacements would be a good way forward. I would be inclined to write with double returns (which will compile properly for Latex), then, when I wanted epub, use a compile replacement which replaces any double returns with single returns. Doing it that way round avoids messing up lists...
