Re: Copying URL Information for Bibliography

@KB: In the meantime, is there a work-around? Spending an afternoon cutting and pasting URL's is not anything I look forward to.

Re: Would you like a keyboard cover/skin for your Mac keyboard? (new Macbook keyboards need covers)

The fact that this question is even asked is an argument in favor of the restoration of a native Linux version.

Re: Interoperability between Scrivener and Vellum

Vellum's presets produce good looking ebooks. They've dealt with issues such as chapter styles, running headers and the like. From what I can tell--and if I've missed presets I'd like to know--Scrivener lets you do what you want. This can be advantageous at times, but unless you're a designer, it's ...

Re: Creating an Index for a scrivener document

How about this for a solution: The creation of an index requires marking up text. To create a good index is a skill. Hiring a good indexer is expensive. For an ebook, the search feature replaces the index, doesn't it? Except that it doesn't. Yesterday I looked for the word "cumulative" as ...

Re: Trouble with formatting for novel (especially indents)

An indent of .25" is the default in the Novel format. If I paste text into the blank "Scene" document I can see the indentation. If you want to increase the indentation, you can do so in Format=>Paragraph=>Tabs and Indents https://imgur.com/nbQEI38 Pasting text yields: https://imgur.c...

Re: Compiling To LaTeX -- One file per section?

You can use Scrivener to compile individual chapters and then use the LaTeX \include command to debug individual chapters. So your base document is something like: \begin{document} \include{chapter1.tex} \include{chapter2.tex} \end{document} Remember not to include \begin{document}...\end{document} ...

Copying URL Information for Bibliography

Let's say I've imported 20 or so web pages into Scrivener as reference material for a project. When I do this, I'm not sure which ones I'll use in my project. Now the project is finished and I need to cite these web pages. At the bottom of the Scrivener window (see image); there's the URL. But all I...

Re: Import Word Document with Styles

Thanks, this works.
Why, though, is text marked as "Normal" in the project post-Word document import not uniform? That is, the font assigned to text marked as "Normal" varies.
This does not occur with the new, imported styles.

Re: Import Word Document with Styles

I tried to import a document to see what would happen. Some of the styles came through, but many did not. For example, this document has six sub-headings. Only the first two came through. The rest, heading 3, 4, 5 and 6 came through as "No Style." Is there a way to fix this so documents ca...

Does Scrivener 3 preserve styles when importing Word documents?

Re: Creating an Index for a scrivener document

You can create an index easily in LaTeX after exporting from Scrivener. If you've written your text in Scrivener in Markdown this will be very easy, otherwise, use rtf2latex to create your LaTeX file. You have to go through your text and mark the entries you want to show in the index. Another way is...
