Can you have 'variables' in Scrivener?

Hey guys,

Find and replace in the entire scriv file can be good to rename places, people etc, but it isn’t always reliable.

Is it possible to set variables which then get used across all documents and the entire book? For example $mc = “Nick” and then instead of typing Nick all the time (then finding and replacing) you can just type $mc and it’ll auto convert it.


Sort of. You can have auto complete items (Section 15.7 in the manual), and you can have Compile-time replacements (Section 24.18).


Perfect! Thank you very much :slight_smile:
