Re: How do I create a multi-level bulleted list?

I used the instructions above to make this:

A. Top
B. Mid

How would I insert a blank line between A & B?

Cursor Blink

An option to turn off cursor blinking would be much appreciated.

Re: Scrivener's manual - skim the fat

It's just my two cents, but I find the idea of a design philosophy in the manual and a style that is personal and sometimes wordy, better than a "just the facts" approach. The Help menu give the facts, the manuals an inviting read that gives me the facts. I'd much rather my students wrote ...

Re: Compile questions

Using no format may make for more versatile output, but absolutely you can format text as you like by hand. As KB says, you needn't use all of Scrivener's features. I find it useful to treat Scrivener this way. It makes it more like a word processor. Do as you will.

Re: What is your experience with Scrivener?

I love Scrivener. I may bitch, but that's on me, and I shouldn't I use it for everything that needs writing and it gets everything I want done. It accommodates my unruly mind and lets me get it in order. Better, it lets me catch those bits that fly by that happen when something else needs to be done...

Re: Titles and bolding

My error was in not clicking on the middle pane in Compile when editing a format. That's where the settings were hiding.

Re: Titles and bolding

Watching the tutorial again and using the Modern settings, I get almost exactly what I want overall and the titles are not in the body, but in the title field.

Titles and bolding

After searching and trying to figure out this myself and asking for help, I'm going try again. I have text in the Editor. The text is formatted as I like. The title for the text is in the title field of the Editor. Everything works fine in the Compile format I use, except the title for the text will...

Re: Adding a compile wizard that will walk new users through the compile process step-by-step

Does the "preserve formatting" option still exist? Between the two, that would be a complete fix.

Re: Adding a compile wizard that will walk new users through the compile process step-by-step

Those settings you have pointed out fix my issue generally. Thank you. However, it breaks special fonts I use.

I'm trying to get what is in the editor to print as-is. I'd like to use section layouts and the like, but so far, manually doing everything seems to be the only way to get what I want.

Re: Adding a compile wizard that will walk new users through the compile process step-by-step

That's what I'm doing. I did not know those setting wouldn't pass through. I'm not using Times in the editor, however, but Helvetica.

Excuse me for asking, but what does PDF export in the print dialog have to do with setting up compile in Scrivener?

I will. However, I am sure my lack of understanding is behind this.
