Re: Separate Files, DocBook, Pragmatic Programmers

Hi Luc, I've been focusing mostly on my Pragmatic Programmers process so my Leanpub chops are a bit old. However: The basic process, keeping chapters in separate documents (with possible sub documents), then exporting, seemed to work just fine. I used Markdown. *bold* etc. Scrivener does not seem to...

MultiMarkdown: horizontal rule; image format

Hi all. Three questions: 1. Scrivener inserts a horizontal rule (----) between sections in multi markdown. They are not acceptable to my publisher's system. I can delete with an editor, or filter them with a Ruby program, I suppose, but is there a way to turn this off? 2. Image output format is ![][...

Re: Separate Files, DocBook, Pragmatic Programmers

Quick followup question: are you using Scriv's built-in multi markdown or is it necessary to install the real thing, in order to use the post processing?

Thanks,

Re: Separate Files, DocBook, Pragmatic Programmers

Thanks for this, it's a good hook for starting. I'll try to keep a link to this. The output I need is all specialized XML that the Pragmatic Programmers use to generate all their books. Once one's book is marked up, they run it though various tools that apply the styles they want to get the various ...

Re: Separate Files, DocBook, Pragmatic Programmers

What would be REALLY useful would be an outline that lets one sync down to some level, and include all the files below.

So you could have, say, a section, with lots of paragraph texts underneath, but it would sync the section as the append of the paragraphs.

Oh well, gotta have a dream ...

Re: Separate Files, DocBook, Pragmatic Programmers

Thanks ... syncing looks useful. And I definitely want to use markdown, which they can support to some degree. So far, the only other Scrivener user I've found is using Scrivenings mode and pasting stuff into a text file. I'd like to do better than that but the point is to write, not do tool work. W...

Re: Separate Files, DocBook, Pragmatic Programmers

Yes, Amber, I'm thinking I might do something like that. The script could get more and more powerful / convoluted ... inserting their boilerplate, and so on. And there is a Scriv2Doc script out there from the guy who wrote the Google App Engine book for O'Reilly that I could scarf up. I'd really lik...

Separate Files, DocBook, Pragmatic Programmers

Hi All, I'm loving Scrivener for creating my book. Lets me organize, move things around, all kinds of good things. Best writing tool I've found in decades. That's the good news. More good news is that Pragmatic Programmers have accepted the book I'm working on and will publish it. The bad news is th...

Re: blank lines between paras in a document

Wow! I think that'll likely do what I need! Well spotted: the MultiMarkdown people weren't able to point me to that.

I'll report back if I get more trouble, but I think that's it. Great! Thanks!

Re: blank lines between paras in a document

Here's one: When you compile to markdown, and include title and synopsis, Scrivener inserts **Title** Synopsis lorem etc And you cannot remove Title nor attach different markdown to it, because the checkbox to edit the RTF panel is not enabled.. Of course the markdown export is not formally part of ...

Re: blank lines between paras in a document

Thanks for the replace ideas. I'm sure they''ll be useful. The convert to plain text one seems to do the job as well for my purposes. Gives me three blank lines but I'm guessing I can fiddlle that down. Maybe that's inter-document. Seems like the plain text (and multi-=markdown) outputs are a bit th...

blank lines between paras in a document

I've looked and can't find this. sorry if it's a well known thing and my eyes just don't see it. sometimes i put more than one paragraph in a document. i'd like my paragraphs to have a blank line between them, when compiling to text. (yes, i could type the extra return but didn't that go out about t...

Two Versions for Leanpub?

I'm using Scrivener to write a couple of books intended to be published on Leanpub. (One of them is tentatively called "Scrivener for Leanpub" or something like that.) It turns out to be quite feasible to keep all one's chapters in Scrivener and compile one big MultiMarkdown file and to ha...
