Re: MMD, Synopsis as Quote, Section Break

Ah. So many options. I think this is the second thing you recommended. I picked a style with synopsis (after having found where to turn off the **Synopsis** stuff, and then set that style prefix to >. That does the thing, more or less by good fortune that Synopsis comes first. I think I understand t...

Re: MMD, Synopsis as Quote, Section Break

That is yet another option, yes. I'd have to edit each section to include that but after that I'd have the luxury of just editing the index cards to adjust the little quotes.

Am I to take it that there's not enough formatting flexibility to do this with formats in the layout?

Thanks!

MMD, Synopsis as Quote, Section Break

Sometimes I think I'd like to use the Synopsis as a little leading quote, like a subtitle, for each section. I'm compiling MMD. I'd like to have a layout that, ideally, shows the synopsis as a markdown quotation, that is, prefixed by a greater-than (>). Failing that, I'd like to have it in italic, i...

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

Good point on the punctuation, I think I had smart quotes still turned on for a while, I remember turning them off while trying to figure out why I couldn't type <!--TOC--> and have it not turn into em-dashes. I do wonder why (and how) it gets set in Processing. Should I file a bug report? Thanks!! ...

Post-Processor Error Message is unclear

I hooked up post-processing in the MultiMarkdown compile, and naturally got the path wrong. The error message, as attached below, just says File creation failed because `(null)` could not be located. The `(null)` executable was specified but it could not be found on this machine. This is enough to t...

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

Well, I'm not sure what's in there but the fact that it didn't work in US-ASCII makes me think the Scrivener output file actually contains UTF-8 characters. I suppose I may have typed something in. I also noticed that when the file was read in ASCII its size was much larger than the size in UTF-8, I...

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

Discovery: When I run my Ruby splitter script from the command line, the input file is seen as UTF-8 encoding. When I run it from the Processing tab in Scrivener, the file is seen as US-ASCII. The latter does not work. Adding the line ARGF.set_encoding(Encoding::UTF_8) before reading the file solves...

Re: Creating a GitHub Pages "booklet" using Scrivener

New version now includes the little Ruby script I wrote, following AmberV's lead, to split the big file and put the references in every split. Hoping to help ...

Re: Markdown images in split files. (revised question)

Yes. Another possibility is that I am not quick. Or that I was too quick. Anyway, maybe there's improvement to be made to aid people like me, if there are any. :D

Thanks!

Re: Markdown images in split files. (revised question)

Thanks, Amber, you're a star as usual. It's section 21. 4 .1, but who's counting. I had looked at that a number of times, including last night, but didn't understand what it was telling me. (I often wonder, using Scrivener, whether I am as bright as I think I am. :D ) I'll try it now ... Yay! I made...

Markdown images in split files. (revised question)

Ah, OK, some deep research into Scrivener and MultiMarkdown later, let me rephrase this. Scrivener compiles images, inMMD mode, to two lines: ![][image_file_name] and, at the end of the file: [image_file_name]: image_file_name.png Then one's MMD processor links these back together. I'm curious why i...

Creating a GitHub Pages "booklet" using Scrivener

I've been trying to create a booklet to be published on GitHub Pages. Amber, Keith, and others are surely maddened by my silly questions, but with their help I'm on the way. So I've decided to publish a different booklet, describing how I am doing it. For those who don't know my writing style, a col...

Placeholder #modifiedDate format

The Placeholders help page says: Gets replaced with the modified date of the document, using one of the formatting styles specified in the System Preferences. <$modifiedDate> displays as 6/16/18 Does the above quote mean there is a place to change it to display, e.g. 20180616? If so, where is that p...
