Adding a Copyright Page

I am using the Windows version of Scrivener. I really like the new version, but I’m not finding a way to add a copyrights page before the Contents page. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thank you so much for your assistance!

If you’re referring to e-book compile, I’m afraid there’s not a way to do this presently, as the TOC is generated automatically and always comes at the start of the book. When we’re able to add further features to this so that users can create a custom TOC, then it will be possible to place this where you want it in the text and you’ll be able to put a copyright page, forward, etc. ahead of it if you want.

You can re-arrange the order of the front matter pages very easily in Sigil, after compiling. Just drag and drop the entries in the Book Browser sidebar to move them, then save the .epub and try it out. If you need .mobi, then you can convert to that from .epub using the KindleGen tool, or more easily, with Calibre.

Thank you both for replying to my question. Jennifer- It’s good to know that there’s not a way to do this in Scrivener at the moment. This will save me time trying to find it. AmberV- Thank you. I think I’m going to do what you suggested. That sounds a lot easier than compiling the document into a Word doc, reformatting, and then converting to epub and mobi. Thanks!!

Oh yes, I would say so! Sigil is a little more “geeky” than the Word route, not in that you have to be a geek to do something easy like this, but in that it presents more technical information to you than a commercial product might. But it’s a nice little program, and if you do know you way around the ePub format, HTML, and CSS, you can do some nice formatting touch-up that is otherwise a pain to do.
