Custom Chapter Numbers in Scrivener 3

I want to use two sets of numbers throughout the novel, one for each timeline. Therefore, I need to tell the compiler which chapter belongs to which line, and also change the way the numbers are formatted (e.g. arabic vs roman, etc.)

How on earth do I do that? I know there are codes we can use (<$n> and such) but where do I insert them? And how to assign the code to each chapter, vs just the section type?

Thank you for your advice!

Define two section types, one for each timeline. Assign a roman-numbered section layout to one, and an arabic-numbered layout to the other.

See Section 24.2 in the manual for more information about defining and editing section layouts, Section 23.3.3 to learn how to assign them.


Thanks Katherine, that woks so far…
