Re: greyed out override text and notes formatting

Further to Robert, HOWEVER, as far as I know, please correct me if I'm missing something, the way the MultiMarkdown plugin works is that I can't impose any formatting at the various levels, because it won't let me go in and change what shows up in the formatting window. I get that I couldn't use RTF...

Re: greyed out override text and notes formatting

Hi Robert, I can surely do that. I just successfully generated a book from Scriv with the "synopsis" embedded in the individual files. Could do it spread over many, of course, as you suggest. One of Scriv's nice features is the cards and I've had some success keeping the real title and syn...

Re: greyed out override text and notes formatting

Yes, Mr G,

I think I'll have to do something like that. Not quite the structure I'd like in the book but maybe with some nesting that I'm not used to yet, it'll be OK.

I sure don't see why one can't be allowed to type into that section, but life is what it is. :)

Thanks,

R

Re: greyed out override text and notes formatting

Hmm, well, almost. It still insists on displaying ** **, and a bunch of blank lines, so I don't think that's likely to really look right. I may be stuck with putting everything directly into scriv paragraphs. Or writing some kind of post=processor. Or my own plug-in? No, stop me before I stop writin...

Re: greyed out override text and notes formatting

Hi, Mr G, thanks for the reply ... I understand what you're saying, and it doesn't quite fit my intention. What I had intended to do was include, at least at some levels, Title and Synopsis, which are basically the corkboard card / binder title, and the corkboard text.I use the synopsis as a sort of...

greyed out override text and notes formatting

I'm writing a document in Scrivener. When I go to compile it, I want to override the formatting for various sections. The check box at the top of the formatting table is greyed out. I am trying to compile to MultiMarkdown. If I compile to, say, PDF, the box is available. I need to do things like rem...

Re: Fold index card slug lines in inspector synopsis?

When you view the corkboard, you see both lines of a card with 2 lines above the red. When you view the Synopsis in the inspector, you see the same card, but the line runs off the page rather than showing two lines as it does in corkboard. I'm wondering if there's a way to see the full title line in...

Keep Losing Paragraph Indent

I'm using Scrivener pretty much out of the box so far. Normally, when I type text into a new document, it has a first line indent. Some things seem to make this indent go away. I have found two. One is to enter list mode. When I exit list mode, the first line indent is gone. Another turns out to be ...

Re: Book with LOTS of pictures

Thanks, Amber. I'll try those options and see what I like. Also need to figure out how I'll get it to paper, if in fact paper is where I decide to put it. InDesign makes me want to poke my eyes out, but Word is pretty weak. Maybe if all the organization is done first ...

Thanks!
