Has Scrivener been localized into Thai? Chinese?

Re: Cover image is not showing for Kindle or pdf docs

Your issue may be with the Kindle (or Kindle application) and not with Scrivener. Amazon has its book display system set up so that the first page of the text--not even front matter--is what you get when you open the book. If you swipe left instead of swiping right, you will see your cover. Several ...

Re: New feature scapple / scrivener

Can you modify a blank Scapple file within Scrivener? I'm not sure what the point of importing a blank Scapple template is.
What I've done is taken a screenshot of a displayed Scapple file and then imported the image into a Scrivener project for reference.

How?
In Scapple, File > New gives you a blank board. I don't see a feature to export a blank board.
In Scrivener, I don't see an option to import a board either.

Re: How to Compile in v.3

ps:

I was under the impression that if you defined a selection of UTF-8 text as a chapter, or section or subsection style in Scrivener (as the use of styles is now possible) that such definition would be picked up during Compile. But that is not the case.

Re: How to Compile in v.3

Document structure, generally: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WYSIWYM In LaTeX (for example): \subsection{This is a subsection.} While this is just UTF-8 text. \subsubsection{And here is a sub-subsection.} In Markdown/html: ## Section Here is some UTF-8 text. ### Here is a subsection.

Re: How to Compile in v.3

Structure-based: Tells Scrivener that the current document should use the default section type based on its indentation in the binder (we’ll look at this in a moment). So, "structure-based" has nothing to do with the structure of the document, but instead deals solely with the structure o...

Re: How to Compile in v.3

Huh? Compile does pick up styles. I'm not really sure what you mean. Styles have nothing to do with Section Types or Layouts (except that Section Layouts can *use* styles). Your quote is purely about section layouts. Make sure you check out the tutorial before the transition guide. "Huh?"...

Re: How to Compile in v.3

Use styles for: Headings (if you are not inserting headings using Compile, that is). How would you insert lower-level headings in the middle of a document using compile? That is, {unstyled text} Here is a heading. [if you don't use styles, this is just plain utf-8 text] {here is more text} How can c...

Re: How to Compile in v.3

You’ll see that “All folders” is set to “Part Heading”. This means that all folders in the project will use the “Part Heading” Section Type by default (that is, any folder whose Section Type is set to “Structure-Based”). This is why the folders we looked at before had their Section Type shown as “P...

How to Compile in v.3

I am still struggling with Scrivener 3's compile function. Could someone post a link to a tutorial? Thanks. The attached image has less options than Scrivener 2. Where are they all hiding?

Re: Vellum Export

Thanks, this should have worked. Unfortunately, Compile placed a page break after each "Vellum Chapter Title" heading and Vellum couldn't handle that at all--no chapters were recognized in Vellum 2.3, the latest version. There were no page breaks after Headings 2 before it was renamed in a...

Re: What to when a word is typed, corrected, the Scrivener tries to go back to the wrong spelling?

I don't think this is a Scrivener, but a Mac OS issue. This autocorrect demon turns up in other programs even when autocorrect is turned off. It loves to chomp on proper names no matter what you do.

Re: Lost my disk during work

I've found that the Finder doesn't always find all Scrivener files. I would recommend instead EasyFind, it's free and drills deeper. If you're comfortable at the command line, FD is a great little open source program for finding files: https://github.com/sharkdp/fd Query: why are USB drives so horri...
