Re: Smart dashes and Ellipses

I'm partial to an option shift hypen em dash —

And have got used to typing curly quotes as needed:

Left single: option ]
Right single (and apostrophe): option shift ]

Left double: option [
Right double: option shift [

Re: Markdown and <$include> Tag

Thanks for all the advice. Also if you’re using Markdown for that then TXT would work best. Keith, above, says "Scrivener won't be able to convert Markdown for text files that are stored externally", but are you saying markdown is okay? I have added an <$include> tag, selected it, and then...

Now that one I didn't know. I don't think it helps in this particular situation, but I'll definitely keep it in mind. Thanks


Paint me shocked. I've read the forum for years. Know how knowledgable you are.

Any tips on external file type (TextEdit, Pages, etc?) or font/paragraph formatting? Or do external files take on a variable compile section layout?

Re: Smart dashes and Ellipses

I don't suppose there's any chance of getting those options unbundled again? I miss the granularity of Scriv 2 since I like ellipses but not the smart dashes (granted that's maybe a pretty niche preference). Edit1 : forgot a word Edit 2: forgot a letter in that word *DOH* You prefer typing three fu...

Re: Markdown and <$include> Tag

I have fixed this for the next update, but the <$include> tag will always have certain limitations. For instance, Scrivener won't be able to convert Markdown for text files that are stored externally and included - it can only do this for text files stored in the project itself. All the best, Keith...

Re: Markdown and <$include> Tag

Do you mean when compiled to MMD->HTML? Because if so then that method doesn’t rely upon Scrivener to convert the MultiMarkdown to RTF internally—that would in fact mess it up. It does that for its own formats, like ePub and the HTML option up next to ePub, etc. For all of those options below the “...

Re: Markdown and <$include> Tag

Hmm, yes it looks like inclusion happens toward the end of the compile process, after documents themselves have been processed to RTF. So if a document never was processed, then the raw text is what you get. It might be an oversight, I’ll check. There are as you can imagine some labyrinthian condit...

Re: Markdown and <$include> Tag

Hmm . . . I'm afraid I can't help you then. I never use include tags so I don't know how they behave exactly. But I'm interested in hearing the full answer! I'm sure a more knowledgeable other person will be able to help you soon. Thanks, again. And the <$include> does work for compiled HTML even i...

Re: Forum software changes (I don't know where to put this)

Firstly you need the Stylish extension installed into your browser. Secondly, I found that with the Safari version of that extension, the outer two lines of my code snippet should be removed: that is the part referring to "mozilla" stuff on the first line, and then the very last curly bra...

Re: Chapters, Front & Back Matter Missing in Compile

The update notification has a little typo. Conventionally, up-to-date should be up to date (no hyphens when following a noun). Up To Date.png You're right, but I'm afraid I have no control over that, as this message is provided by a third-party framework called Sparkle, which we use to handle autom...

Re: Markdown and <$include> Tag

I believe the idea is this: - if it's in the Draft folder (or re-named equivalent) then conduct compile settings (in your case: convert from Markdown). - if it's in the Research folder (or re-named equivalent) then do noting during compiling. Always leave "as is" You could always create a...

Re: Chapters, Front & Back Matter Missing in Compile

Katherine has hit the nail on the head - the filter icon being blue means that a filter has been set. I've fixed the update error. As Katherine says, there are no updates yet, so I hadn't yet put up the necessary RSS file on our servers which is used to check for updates. I've added that now so tha...

Markdown and <$include> Tag

I have created a new project in Scrivener 3 using the blank template. It contains one file in Draft, called Scene, and another file in Research, called Boilerplate. Scene contains some markdown and an include tag that references Boilerplate: This is the text in Draft > Scene. This paragraph has mark...
