I’m asking this question on behalf of a friend who is just starting with Scrivener. (Hey, I swear it’s not me. I use Mac. ) He wants chapter end notes. I’ve tried to research the alternatives for implementing notes, and I’m no closer to the finish than I was when I started.
Can somebody give me a helpful nudge so I can help my less-than-technically savvy friend figure it out?
I’m going to cry. Is there no decent end-note solution for Scrivener on Windows?
I think the answer is that Scrivener itself wouldn’t know where to put them. I’m on a Mac and solve the problem quite easily by including a marker of some kind, say ***** centred, in the appropriate separators pane of compile, then in Nisus Writer Pro use Find and Replace to replace that marker with a “section break new page”. In NWP endnotes are set to restart at each new section.
Could your friend not do the same thing using Word or whatever?
The problem is the friend has very little technical expertise, and is about $1K miles away…making it harder for me to set him up. In law school (where you footnote every sentence) I solved this problem by using LaTeX and compiling with Make (pre-Scrivener).
His fall-back is MS Word, which I consider a terrible choice as it co-mingles formatting and content.
I guess a possible fall-back is for him to write in Markdown that I could compile for him later. But I’m personally not happy with the idea of writing markdown in an RTF file that is later converted to LaTeX.
