Re: Paragraph Indenting

Not the sequence, just the menu item. Takes about 10–20 seconds to set up.

Re: Paragraph Indenting

Increase Indents (for the whole paragraph) doesn't have a default key combination assigned to it. You can set your own, of course: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25377?locale=en_US

Absolutely. Can I enter a plea of tiredness as the reason for my oversight?

Apologies.

I *think* this is what you want:

File > Compile > Formats > Right click the relevant format and choose either Edit Format or Duplicate & Edit Format > Styles

Re: plain text

Hello

Short answer, no.

Scrivener is RTF in the Editor.

Re: Compile and Titles

Removing As Is seems to make a difference.

Re: Split paragraph to sentences (Linebreak between sentences in one action)

Search for a full stop and space (or similar markers that end the sentences, such as exclamation or question marks) and use one or more paragraph marks in the replace field.

Re: Paragraph first line indents (in editor)

Since it doesn't seem to be possible at the moment, should I rather request it as a feature? Can't hurt to ask . . .and I might have got this wrong for years. It's a fantastic program, IMO, but beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. It's built for structuring, writing, and editing, where the ...

Re: How to control first paragraph indent?

Bridey: actually I think your answer is the better route for 99.68% of people — it does what pomme4mois wanted automatically.

Re: Paragraph first line indents (in editor)

It is possible to break Scrivener down into little or large sections. A file for a single sentence or paragraph. It is only during compile that Scrivener gets told what each file or folder is and how each type of file and folder should be joined together or separated. The compile settings allow user...

Re: How to control first paragraph indent?

Thank you Bridey. You are correct that the options in Text Layout control paragraph indenting across the entire manuscript (at least, that's my understanding). But I'm trying to control indenting by section layout. That's were the manual implies that CSS is needed, but I don't know how to do that. ...

Re: How to control first paragraph indent?

AFAIK, the settings in Separators and Text Layout (certainly, changes in these sections impact on how the ePub compiles, either with or without indents).
