Re: page break issue when opening a compiled draft with Pages

There's a place on the compilation menu for page breaks. But I must be doing that wrong. When a folder (ex: 3) is followed by its document (ex: Chapter Three), are both supposed to be clicked for compilation, or only the actual document, skipping the folder? I am skipping the folders and clicking th...

Re: page break issue when opening a compiled draft with Pages

This may be the wrong place to mention this, but I'm having the same prob with Word. I save as rtf, open and page breaks are gone. I've had to do them manually every time I compile, and I have a couple of very long, multi-chaptered projects. I'm using Word for the Mac 2008.

Searching for files and folders

I searched my project for some information, and the correct document popped up. However, I can't figure out what folder it's in. I suppose I could open every folder I have until I find it, but is there an easier way? Thank you!

Re: Saving a second copy to work from

Yes, dragging from one to the other seems an easy approach. Thank you!

Re: Export option underline to italics

This is an old thread but I thought I'd say that as of a year ago, several of my friends who are published authors were still being told by their editors to use underline rather than italics. These are major American publishers.

Re: Saving a second copy to work from

Thank you, Keith. I was asking if there was a way to export a duplicate of the document itself w/o the research files into a new binder.

However, I have plenty of room on my hard drive so it's not really a problem having them duplicated, as well.

Thanks to all.

Re: Saving a second copy to work from

MrGruff, that might work. I'm worried about having them both in the binder, fearing I'll start working on the wrong one and end up with a mess. That's why I thought having a separate binder or project might work better.

Thank you.

Re: Saving a second copy to work from

Is there a way to put the duplicate draft in a separate binder rather than leaving it in the same one? (I didn't find the way to duplicate because I was looking under the File window rather than the Document window.)

Saving a second copy to work from

Upon completion of my first draft, I'd like to keep it intact and create a "saved as new title" draft to actually edit. I don't see a "save as" option. Is the best way just to "backup draft" to my desktop and rename it?

Re: Web archive link always goes to L&L

I have downloaded the nanowrimo trial. In order to use it to update my licensed software, do I follow the directions and drag into the applications folder? Do I need to delete old copies or does dragging it automatically do whatever needs to be done?

Thanks!

Links for imported webpages

I believe this is a new problem for me; I'm relatively certain that in the past this didn't happen. When I click on links that are embedded in imported webpages, they take me onto the internet and the links work. But the link at the bottom of the page, the link that is the URL for the actual webpage...

Importing video

I doubt if I can do this, but I thought I'd check. I found a video that gives the kind of detailed information and visuals that I've been looking for, and would like to import it into my research so that it's available whether I'm online or not, and won't disappear if the building finds a buyer. Can...
