Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

Now compiling, and Scrivener has added unwanted numbers to the document. Numbering was inserted manually in the draft. There is no automatic numbering. In the Compile => Format section you referred to, there is nothing to turn off that references autonumbering. The top image is pre-compile, the bott...

Re: Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

In the "All Options" area of Compile, check out the "Formatting" pane > Section Layout... It sounds as though you are using a compile format that is set to insert auto-numbering as a title prefix, and you can edit it or remove it there. I'm not compiling. Just drafting a document.

Turn off Auto-Numbering/Paste Plain Text

I was under the impression that Scrivener 3.0 uses its own text engine rather than relying on the underlying Mac OS text engine. But: trying to copy plain (UTF) text from another document. There's no "copy plain text" option. Copying activated autonumbering, even though this is set to &quo...

Select Documents for Compile

In v.2, it was possible to select (by clicking a checkmark box) those documents that you wanted to be included in Compile.
I can't find this functionality in 3.0.
Admittedly, Compile in 3.0 is a feature I have struggled with from the beginning.
Can someone tell me where this is hiding?

Foreign Language Support?

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

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...
