Re: How to compile a Scrivener document to Latex?

As a Section Type, and thus the equation is in its own binder item. ...To create a cross-reference to a numbered equation, you simply use Scrivener’s internal links in the text. It will add the autoref command for you (and as well it will create the label in the equation to act as an anchor for the...

Re: How to compile a Scrivener document to Latex?

I don’t think I have that project any longer, but I believe everything that it demonstrates is documented in the template’s readme file, at the top of the binder. So if you’re curious how I made an index with it, search for “index” in that file, and you’ll find a “Creating an Index” section. :) Bum...

Re: How to compile a Scrivener document to Latex?

Have you given the “General Non-Fiction (LaTeX)” project template a try yet? Would you be able to share the Scrivener document that was used as the source for the Sample PDF included in the General Non-Fiction (LaTeX)” project template? I think I could learn a lot by seeing how things were done beh...

Re: Test Scrivener's New .docx Converters

Hi Keith, I am a longtime Scrivener user, who is now writing a scholarly book with it. The book has many equations and symbols, for which I used MathType integrated with Scrivener. But I have encountered a huge problem that I think your new converters could help with (and from reading the forums, I'...

Re: MathType equations compiling to MS Word as images

Apart from that I have no experience of MathType (I've never installed it), I've always used LaTeX equations (via http://formulasheet.com/#b if I want a GUI). It may be possible to build a custom tool with https://mathpix.com that OCRs equations in images to LaTeX, but that would be quite a lot of ...

Re: MathType equations compiling to MS Word as images

This workflow may not be ideal for you, but if you use LaTeX for your Maths in Scrivener and compile to MMD -> Pandoc DOCX then equations are all converted into editable equations in Word. I wonder if I could get your advice on my current predicament. I have written the first draft of a technical b...

Re: Find and Replace to add Subscript

You may hate the suggestion, but since I always compile to Word format after composing in Scrivener, I just use Word to do the Find/Replace: 1. Use Find/Replace to change instances of "CO2" to (e.g.) "CO*2*" 2. Then use Find/Replace again (this time using Word's Advanced Find &am...

Re: Hierarchical numbering for cross-references

I wanted each equation in a given chapter (e.g. Chapter 1) to have this form: (1.1), (1.2), (1.3). I believe this was the OP's goal too. I achieved it by auto-numbering and then naming each chapter, and then doing the same for each equation within a chapter. Then when I wanted to refer to an equatio...

I'm wondering how to create multiple footnotes in the same location, as depicted in the attached photo of a Word document. Thanks!

Re: Convert inline footnote to normal text?

I think I just thought of a way! I can select all and then make the *entire* text an inline footnote, then I can uncheck that one giant inline footnote. Now there are no more inline footnotes, and what were inline footnotes are now left behind as part of the main text. YES! Sadly this only works if...

Re: Convert inline footnote to normal text?

File -> Compile -> RTF Compatibility pane. Check the box to flatten footnotes and comments into regular text. Only available if you're compiling to RTF, DOC(X), or ODT format. Katherine Thanks. However, this operation still creates a footnote, just not a "true" footnote. What I want is a ...

Re: Convert inline footnote to normal text?

There's not an easy way (other than compiling) to do it for an entire document, but for individual notes just select the footnote text and uncheck "Inline Footnote" on the Format menu. Katherine Hi Katherine: I'm looking for *any* way to do this, easy or hard. If it is indeed possible by ...

Re: Convert inline footnote to normal text?

Check Sec. 18.3.1 "Stripping Out All Notation" in the manual. I think that's what you're trying to accomplish. Thanks, but that's not quite what I want. I want the text that was in the inline footnote to remain as normal text -- I just want an option to make that text no longer a footnote...
