Re: Scrivener 3 and viewing embedded docs

Thanks Keith. Looks like it is indeed something on OO's end.

Scrivener 3 and viewing embedded docs

It appears that Scrivener 3 can't display the contents of embedded OmniOutliner files, whereas Scrivener 2 could.

Is this...

1) A bug?
2) A not-yet-re-implemented feature?
3) A new, permanent limitation?
4) OmniOutliner's fault?

Re: Possible to set different margins for different pages?

Thanks everyone. I'm still hoping that there's a secret way to accomplish this, but absent that, I guess I'll fall back on the age old "make the cast collate their own scripts" technique.

Possible to set different margins for different pages?

In Compile > Page Settings, one can set page margins for a compilation to PDF. I'm curious if there's a way to set different margins for different parts of a document. In my case, my Scrivener file alternates between text documents and imported graphics. (Musical score pages.) For the text I need st...

Re: Add lots of images, some are distorted on compile

Thanks Amber. The low-memory theory seems to be substantiated. While I'm limited in my graphic exporting options to what Sibelius can provide, I found that reducing the dpi to 150 made significantly smaller files. Using them seems to circumvent the distortion problem. I also found that I can export ...

Re: Add lots of images, some are distorted on compile

I also suspected it was a memory issue, though switching to a machine with 24gb RAM didn't seem to help.

RTF seems to work but doesn't include images. Is that expected behavior?

Re: Add lots of images, some are distorted on compile

Thanks for your thoughts everyone. I tried deleting half of the image files from the Scrivener document, and found that everything exported fine. I then tried re-adding 26 PNG images to a single text document — this is how I've been adding images so far, several to one scene. (Each image is a page o...

No, just standard PDF viewed on a Mac desktop.

Add lots of images, some are distorted on compile

I have a Scrivener file with a large number of PNG images throughout. (It's the integrated script/score for a musical, and I've imported score pages as images, one per page.) The resulting file is large, 185mb right now. On compile, most of the images look fine, but others come out as black blocks. ...

Underline formatting disappears

Hi forum, I'm working in script mode and periodically lose all the underline formatting in my script. I suspect it's happening when I've tweaked the margins in the Script Settings, but am not sure. I uses underlines for emphasis, like italics. It's annoying to have to manually replace them. Is this ...

Automatically list all characters in a scene?

Hi forum,

When working in script mode, is there a way to automatically generate a list of all characters in a scene? All the solutions I've found online involve manually tagging scenes, which seems like an unnecessary extra step.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Mike
