Can you make sample scriv project from the one that doesn't work, zip it up and attach it so we can have a look?

I've been having trouble figuring out how to export with styles in Windows (so I can use docx to plug into inDesign). So I tried what nontroppo suggested.

nontroppo wrote:You must do this manually in your Compile format. You set up your Heading 1-3 styles in the Compile Style Editor pane, and then you use these styles in the Compile Section Layout Editor pane.

This is the result in Word's document map:

See a test project that demonstrates this here

Heading Test.scriv.zip


I downloaded the project, Unziped it, Opened it. Without touching anything, compiled it as docx using the "ModernPart-Chapter-Scene" Format, and the result was no styles (just font, size, and I assume, color). No document map.

I noted the zip file had a "__MACOSX" folder, so my guess is that this is a Windows bug. Can anyone else confirm this?

Please confirm that you are using the Win Scrivener 3 beta. The current release version of Windows Scrivener does not support styles, so none of the advice in this thread will work.

I'd suggest starting a new thread in the Beta forum, then.

I have the same problem. I use Scrivener 3.0.3 (3032)
I cannot make it work either. MS Word doesn't recognize the headings. I use MacOS.
Is there no solution? Why does Scrivener not support styles?

On a sidenote: The file worked for me, but I coudn't reproduce it, and I followed everything step by step. It only works if I import the formatting (heading) used in this file.

If you're using MacOS, please post in the Mac support forum. You're likely to get much more relevant responses. Or open a support ticket:

Yes, Mac Scrivener 3 should attach styles to Word format output. If it's not working for you, we'll probably need to do some additional investigation to resolve the problem.

I have a little hack for fellow Windows sufferers. In Word do a "replace all" > Format > Style,
any text that says "Part I", "Part V", etc" to "Heading 1" and any text beginning with "Chapter " to "Heading 2." it's not fancy and you may pick up some other text, but the basic outline will show up in the navigation pane.
