The internet isn’t cooperating.  I love the hell out of Scrivener’s Compile feature, especially the way it builds the Table of Contents for me without me having to carefully hyperlink everything.  But:

Does anyone know how to prevent it from actually adding the “Chapter Seventy” part in front of the chapter title?  Because it’s doing that throughout and I’d prefer that it not do that.  I’ve been fiddling and haven’t figured out what the problem is yet.

(EDIT: Figured it out, naturally.  Leaving the post up so you can get a gander at some chapter titles.)

    1. In the Compile menu, you need to go to Title Adjustments, then click on the gear next to Do Not Add Title Prefix or Suffix to Documents. At that point you can click whatever you don’t want to have a chapter heading next to it; in my case that was everything.


      1. Thanks very much, Luther. It’s a great program but I find a lot of the tools hard to find. I suppose that’s why there are courses on it. 😛


        1. The fellow in the previous post who said it was unintuitive is certainly right, but even with all the work I’ve done today it’s still eons beyond what I’d be able to do with Word. I look forward to seeing what sort of paperback it can create. But not tonight.
