Re: Font style sheets

Style sheets as you define them do not exist in the current version of Scrivener. Katherine What he is talking about is like CSS on the web. But that would only affect the way the document looked in Scrivener which I suppose could be useful from a user interface aesthetics point of view. But the im...

Re: Font style sheets

Style sheets? Oh, please let it be so! I belong to two writers groups. One of them is capricious in its format requests, the other is pretty stable and forgiving. It would be so nice to just swap one style sheet set for another to reformat according to the wishes of the day. Here's hoping style she...

Re: What fonts do you use?

I'm using MS Word 2011 and just found out that it doesn't like fonts with too many wieghts as can be seen in this thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=39043

Had to disable some options for Word to work. May not be a problem in Word 2016.

Re: I know it autosaved to dropbox before my laptop crashed, where is it now?

You could also switch over to a Mac. Apple has a built in feature called Time Machine that automatically backs up all your work every hour. So at the most you would have only lost an hour's work. Time Machine has a lot of other powerful capabilities as well - your program suddenly becomes buggy and ...

Re: Compile is changing body fonts

I wonder if you create a new file in TextEdit and set some lorem ipsum text to Baskerville regular, save that as RTF and open it in Word, do you get the same result? I can't think of anything out of the ordinary (at least in terms of what the text engine would do itself) that Scrivener might be doi...

Re: Compile is changing body fonts

Yes, I see what's happening. Silly question time: do you use Scrivener and Word in the same user account on the same machine? If yes, what happens if you click 'Regular' in Scrivener - does it show all the Baskerville options, or just Regular? I'm just scrabbling in the dark here, but one thing you...

Ok first this is what it looks like in Scrivener. And then what it looks like in MS Word 2011 after compiling it with format as "original" to RTF

Re: Compile is changing body fonts

Well, I found out what was causing the underlining :D ; the comment where the underlining started consisted solely of a link to a web page. When I removed the link and put in ordinary text the line disappeared which is good, but now the link to the page I wanted to reference is also gone which is ba...

I should not have mentioned Sanskrit as a variable because if they are unicode Sanskrit is covered. So the main thing is they should be unicode.

Re: What fonts do you use?

Libertine (of Wikipedia fame) was linked to above, but if you like those kinds of flared hybrid fonts you might like Biolinium, also from the Libertine project, or Optima, free with every Mac. They are low-key and very clean, but have that subtle quasi-serif feel to them. I like these kinds of font...

Re: Compile is changing body fonts

I can’t explain the font issue with Word; if it is working correctly in other word processors it could be the way Microsoft is looking for fonts. That is typically only a problem when crossing platforms, but who know what they are doing with their text engine on the Mac—it surely doesn’t load fonts...

I intend to make my scrivener+pandoc tutorial much more comprehensive soon, but I'm waiting for Scrivener 3 to go fully public first. I don't really like video tutorials, but did find this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N31E_NZYQQY & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrZRIU8IHaI Here are some o...

Re: Zotero integration please!!!

Why use Pandoc if you are already using BookEnds? What is the advantage? Pandoc is a first and foremost a very powerful markdown conversion system with bibliographic support. The trivial answer to your question is that I don't have to manually scan anything, I compile to markdown in Scrivener, and ...

Compile is changing body fonts

I am having a strange problem in compiling a document. For title and headings I am using Fritz-Quadrata and for body text Baskerville regular. When I compile using “original” to RTF and open with Word 2011 the title and headings come out properly as Fritz-Quadrata but instead of Baskerville regular ...
