Scrivener and Zotero - developments

This is good news for folks who do their academic / non-fiction writing in Scrivener and use Zotero as a reference manager. The guys behind Zotero's rtf/odf-scan plugin have worked out a solution for the formatting issues for foot- and endnotes outlined in the post here: http://www.literatureandlatt...

Re: Reference manager - how to change the citation system?

Have a look a the CSL-styles pages; all these would be usable via Papers. As you can see there are 7000+ styles that can be used by several programs that have implemented the CSL-styles protocol. (I'm a http://www.zotero.org"> user; it works well with Scrivener – albeit not as smooth as I'd lik...

Feature Request: compile option for footnotes

This is an upshot of the odf-scan scan issue as described by epedrick, alawyer and myself. http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23467 It looks as if epederick has found a way to avoid the weird font/formatting issue: by putting the bibiliographical cites directly into the ...

Re: Another ODF compile problem

The compile issue for foot-or endnotes to either rtf or odf persists when used with Zotero's odf-scan. Can confirm descriptions by epedrick and later in the thread by alawyer. While odf endnotes compiled from Scrivener appear with even font size as endnotes in Libre or Neo they look like endnotes bu...

Re: Delete more than one note style

(Only just found this, as I did't have the appropriate box ticked).
Excellent suggestion and straightforward to do – just succeeded in deleting all of my unwanted styles at one fell swoop. Thanks!

Re: Delete more than one note style

Thanks for getting back. This is a "would be nice" rather than a "can't live without" – I'm sure there are other features more urgent waiting to be implemented.

Delete more than one note style

Trying to retain some of my note styles from month's of scappling and many previous boards I ended up creating a styles "master board" with multiple copies of some of my styles (learnt to tick the overwrite existing styles button since). Is there any easy way to manage styles, i.e. delete ...

Good things to note for Scrivener folks using Zotero: two of it's sterling volunteer team have put together a reliable plug-in that allows effortless insertion of citation markers into Scrivener documents – thus connecting Zotero's bibliographical goodness, collection & managment power directly ...

Re: How to use bibliography and references?

@mronkko: This is great news. You'd make quite a number of Scrivenerites happy. While the odf-scan works with Zotero's multilingual version, I would be absolutely delighted to use a more direct integration with vanilla Zotero. (I'm writing my book using both and maintaining a somewhat fiddly workaro...

Re: Footnotes behind punctuation marks

While I have little doubt that the footnote-after-punctuation-school is dominant in the German world I'm sure out there in the typographical wilderness you'll find some style-sheet to state otherwise. We seem to be – in equal measure – a contradictory and obsessive lot.

Re: Footnotes behind punctuation marks

Thanks for thinking of Non-English Scrivenarians. The book suggests that footnotes in German are generally placed after the punctuation mark. As the OP suggests. ...Bekanntheit.[1] Since footnotes sometimes refer to a single term – rather than the whole sentence – they can also stand immediately aft...

Re: Competing comments and footnotes - expected behaviour?

Thanks for your suggestion MM. Experimenting with (*) for my footnotes now. This seems preferable for the moment – for the reasons you suggest. Also, I notice that this pleasantly minimizes the visual impact of the footnotes in my text – and perhaps encourages more of a bad habit. :twisted:

Re: Competing comments and footnotes - expected behaviour?

Thanks for responding.
I'm afraid this is expected behaviour, yes.
Fair enough. The Undo is great – if I actually notice that I've accidentally zapped one of my bibliographical pretties. The last times I only did a good deal later…too late for Undo. I'll learn to live with it.

Competing comments and footnotes - expected behaviour?

I love the comments and footnotes feature as "marginalia" in the inspector. I wonder though if the following is expected behaviour of this nifty feature: Steps: - Write text in editor - add footnote for the last word (last word takes the bg-colour of footnotes) - fill in footnote in inspec...

Re: Link colour non-responsive to setting in prefs

Problem solved. Culprit is called "Mars TextTools1.1", now deinstalled and banished. All my settings have returned to their default values and respond obediently to erratic manual fumbling in the prefs. TextTools seems to interfere with some of Scrivener's text appearance and at least part...
