Hello, I am quite new to Scrivener and would use it to write academic text. As stated in many posts I already read, such text requires a lot of referencing in the same document - e.g. to figures, tables etc.
I found posts explaining how to manage this issue with placeholder tags in Scrivener, but seemingly it only works in the Mac version. My question is - will the use of advances placeholder tags like in this little example be possible with Scrivener 3 for Windows?
See Figure <$n:figure:myImage>,
Figure <$n:figure:nextImage> and Table <$t:table:myTable>.
If not - could you provide a tutorial or manual to maybe use another additional software to overcome this issue? Would it be possible to do this with Latex for Windows?
Thank you, I was not sure whether I missed something in my version. So, I will wait then for Scrivener 3. I still use the trial version of Scrivener 2 and I guess if I buy that now I will have to pay in addition to upgrade to 3…
Thanks again, Nicole
Yes, I imagine it will be more than 3 months before Windows v. 3 is fully ready, so there will probably be an upgrade fee. I don’t know what the status of the advanced placeholder tags is in the current beta1, but maybe someone will be along who does know. Depending on how tech-savvy you are, you might consider downloading the beta at some point. The appropriate link will be posted in the Beta-testing forum.
