Re: Buying Scrivener on Mac - any difference between buying on website or in AppStore?

Appstore customer service is automated and heavily relies on algorithms. L & L provides individual service. If the algorithm shut you down on the App Store, good luck sending emails. Sure you can go into your local Apple Store, but that assumes you have access to one. That may not be the case if...

Re: Making an index?

If you compile to pdf, there are a couple of commercial programs (Pdf Index Generator is one) which let you create an index, but it's really more of a concordance. You can tweak the automatically generated output, but that might take a while, especially if you have a long work. The problem is removi...

Re: Add Page Break

"If you have a page you don't want, I don't see why you're thinking of adding a page break. Then you'd have TWO blank pages." You're absolutely correct. My bad. I was looking for something along the lines of the LaTeX \cleardoublepage command. But... "Absent all that, here's my best g...

Re: Unreadable code when copy Chinese characters in PDF compiled by Scrivener

Try pasting into TextEdit first.
If it looks OK there, Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, then copy into Scrivener.
If it still looks bad in Scrivener, it's an encoding problem.

Add Page Break

I've compiled my 230 page document but I'm getting a blank page 5. Is there any way to put in a page break at the bottom of page 4 but otherwise not touching the rest of the document? Insert=>Break=>Page does not fix the problem. Right now there is a page of text (pg 4), followed by an empty page (p...

Re: How to make: leaders, dot leaders, or leader dots?

I changed the page setup from Printer to Scrivener and changed the margins to 1 cm. That seems to have fixed it.

Re: Dot Leaders

I changed the page setup settings from A4-printer to A4-Scrivener and changed the margins to 1 cm.
That seems to have fixed it.

Re: How to make: leaders, dot leaders, or leader dots?

Any idea why it's doing this? Dark picture is the editor, light picture is as compiled.

By all means, post or share it!

but wonder if there is an easier way.

No, I can't use Compile, but thank you.

Re: How to import a multi-page PDF all at once

I didn't know you could add pdf pages to a pdf using Preview. That is a helpful tip. I knew that you could remove pages.

I just tried Quark and it is possible to import multi-page pdf's (the menu item is buried).

Re: How to import a multi-page PDF all at once

I have a multi-page PDF that I would like to include in my document *without changing the pdf.* The goal is to include client-created pdf's in a catalog of documents. I could compile to pdf and just leave the client pdf's out of it, then use something like Acrobat Pro (extremely expensive) to stitch...

Re: How to import a multi-page PDF all at once

You can import any file — and I do mean ANY file — into Scrivener. At the Dropbox link is a video where I drag the Scrivener 1 manual into Research, and you'll see all the pages are there. https://www.dropbox.com/s/j1aiz8w9vrk2mes/drag%20pdf.mp4?dl=0 Into Research, yes. But I need the multi-page pd...
