as will become pretty apparent from subsequent posts from me, I'm rather new to this whole MMD/LaTeX thing. Boy, this is a Beast!
I'm not that much of a tech person/programmer by your standard, probably, so have some patience please.
I aim to do as much as possible in Scrivener itself, and have no real desire to hack XSLT/LaTeX files unless absolutely necessary.
As a consequence my mode of work is p(r)etty trial-and-error. This means I have to take the following steps very often:
- <alt>-<command>-E to open Scrivener's "Compile Draft" pane
- hitting <Enter> to start the Export, which opens a Save File dialog
- entering a filename
- hitting <Enter> twice to export and confirm a file overwrite
- switching to TeXShop with <command>-<Tab>
- hitting <command>-W twice to close the Preview and TeX-file windows of the previous version of my document
- mousing to File - Open Recent - filename.tex
- hitting <command>-T to typeset my document
Any suggestions for automating (part of) these steps are welcomed.
I was hoping to create Folder Actions with OS X's Automator, but TeXShop doesn't support this.
