Compress images

I just discvered that I'd like the possibility to compress the images stored in Scrivener. Thus it would be possible to create print books frominside Scrivener and -even more important -not have the images stored twice - smaller ones in Scrivener and the 300 dpi-images outside. As ist is, it makes f...

Re: Images

The "official" solution to this problem is to use linked images in an external folder. When you compile for print, use the hi-res images. When you compile for ebooks, use the compressed images. Katherine Ah! Okay IA pity. My dropbox is already at its limit. that would be something for the...

Re: Invalid epub bcause of ibooks

I can't imagine that to be a validator error... Smashwords flagged it. that's why I went to look myself I created the e-book directly with Scrivener, like I used to do with the old Scrivener. I made two tries with deleting, first only the word "ibook", then more, but that then was obviousl...

BUG? Cover doesn't stick

This is a multiple parts-project: I compiled to e-book, with a cover selected. but it doesn't go into the e-book and it seems it doesn't stick in the pane for selecting the cover.

And: what does it mean? "First image in the front matter folder?"Erstes Bild i im Titelei-Ordner?)

Re: Images

While there are lots of image editors and the like, some free and others costing hundreds of dollars, you may find a quick and easy (and free) piece of software that can get the job done here: https://www.xnview.com/en/xnview/ Scrivener has no internal method of manipulating images. thanks. I so ho...

Is there a way that i can compress images for the e-book output?
I have the original files imported into the research folder, needing them in 300 dpi for print. Now I get huge files in epub. How do I shrink them?

Beta 20. Size Section Layout window

In the compiler, when I want to change the layout of a section and I open the section layout window, the thing is too big and I can't reach the "Save"-button or whatever it i is down at the end of the window. When I push it up as high as possible, I see sort of a lines that lets me think, ...

Re: [Bug] Beta 19. Error generating the epub book

Same here.
i choose 2 options, for compiling to epub:: default and e-book. Neither works. It starts the compiling process and then at some point it breaks and the error message comes up.

what did you do to the poor compiler?

windows 10, version 1903.

Re: EPUB 2

It diddn't work properly?
Mine did. The epub2 that I made with Scrivener 1.9. were always valid.

On the other hand, going through OpenOffice or LibreOffice were a mess

EPUB 2

so, now there is a problem: I just asked - and still tolino" does neither allow to upload EPUB 3 nor do they have a plan, when they would make that possible. Means, we need epub2 to distribute to tolino for another while. Please, maintain the possibility to compile to epub2. As you had it in an...

Re: [LH3539] : Position of the cursor is expected to be preserved between sessions, bit it's not

To me it seems as if the cursor remains in place. But the file opens at a random place.
I understand that instead it should open at the place, where I left it .As does Scrivener 1.9.
So this is clrealy abug. or not?

I know ,where to look, but as I don't use chevrons, I can't find the right ones - like I said, there are two which look alike. And different to the old Scrivner they are not rounded.

Re: HELP! Where are the German quotation marks?

Germans have their OWN quotation marks? Who else knows about this? Nobody ever tells me nothin'! :roll: Of course, we have. We do it differently with both types - the Egnlish style ones we put the first down at the foot, the last up, but looking in the otherdirection. Using the French style ones, w...

[LH3631] HELP! Where are the German quotation marks?

I can't find them in the drop-dowm list of smart quotes. (you see them here https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anf%C3%BChrungszeichen ) the seventsh' and the eights are both the same and the upper one at the end is always wrong. Also, I see that the list of the "double" quotation marks is short...
