I write in Markdown. Because Scrivener and Markdown have agreed to disagree, I compile to Plain Text. (If there’s a better way, I’d like to know it.)
Our colleague @nontroppo uses some Scrivener styles while writing, to make things a bit more clear as the writing proceeds. I decided to try that today with a billeted list. In Markdown you prefix such a list with an asterisk. The result in the text is that you have a plain paragraph that starts with an asterisk. So I painted the list with Bulleted List. This gives something that looks like this:
- Item one
- Item 2
- Item III
That looks a bit odd but is visually set off nicely. HOWEVER …
When this is compiled to plain text, Scrivener inserts the bullets. I had hoped it would not do so. I can find nothing in the compile templates that suggests a way to turn this off.
Is there such a way? If not, what would be a better way to proceed? (I think I’ll try using the block-quote style, which should at least set the paragraph indented which may be enough.
