Formatting

These are probably pretty basic questions, but I can't seem to locate answers in the user manual: (1) How do I change the formatting within Scrivener for 30 separate chapters of text that I imported? (2) How can I get chapter names to show correctly in the compile? (3) How do I get rid of the novel ...

Re: Importing large file

Keith, Amber V, Both comments very helpful. As a recent convert to Mac, I have the Windows disease of starting with the assumption that whatever I do will be complex and hold the likelihood of a Blue Screen of Death. The Import and Split worked like a charm. After a couple of false starts, Amber's a...

Importing large file

As a newbie, I need some advice. I have a piece 35,000 words, 40 short chapters, that I would like to pull into my newly purchased Scrivener. I've done the tutorial, so I'm guessing that the best way to do that is to read in the whole file, then go through the splitting process mentioned in step 18....

Re: "TheBoard" - feedback wanted on simple brainstorming app

I am not a tech person, but a couple of comments: 1) Most of the mind-mapping software seems to have become addicted to the drug of complexity. I like the simplicity. Long, long ago, back in the Pleistocene of computers, Apple II could run a program called ThinkTank that was similar to what you have...

Re: Won't compile

Kevin, I read your note carefully, then failed to comply with all of it. I downloaded the Beta, opened it and found that the Compile function worked just fine. Shut down, then opened Scrivener again, and the problem reappeared. Realized that I should get rid of the original program, which I did, thu...

Won't compile

I'm testing Scrivener out on a mac pro Snow Leopard. Using the excellent tutorial, I got down to compile, and the compile didn't run. I followed instructions in Step 17, which demonstrates compiling, and Scrivener went into an extended, blue-on-white candy stripe loop. Is that because I have not yet...
