Is there a way to add back matter (such as a list of my other books and a copyright statement) to a Novel with Parts, without these extras appearing in the TOC as Chapters? - just as Author's Note and Copyright, for example.

Thanks.

This is absolutely possible, but you have to manipulate your compile settings and position your back matter documents to match. It's kind of the old fashioned way of doing front matter, except you put your documents at the end of your manuscript.

Since you're doing a "Novel with Parts" binder structure, you'll want to create each section of your back matter as a separate document at the same indent level as your "Part" folders. Then you'll want to go to the Formatting section of the compile window, and change the "Level 1" document settings so that it doesn't add any title prefix.

If you need further explanation as to how that's accomplished, feel free to ask.

I followed the link to your site and was pleased to find you've got other articles on Scrivener.
In case it will help others, here's one...
