Compile to word, loosing formatting?

Hi, I’m trying to compile into word format - but when I open the file in word none of header1, 2, 3… are preserved? why not, all of the nice structure i’ve build in scrivener is gone. I must be doing something wrong since this is a basic operation.

The Apple text engine, which is what Scrivener uses, knows nothing of styles in the sense that MS Word uses them. If you search for “styles” on the forum you will find numerous posts on this subject, and some work-rounds if you want to turn formatted text into Word styles.

Cheers, Martin.

Thanks - knowing the right word in the search helps, I think the scheme would do the trick
