I used Scrivener2 since 2013. Now I purchased Scrivener3, but i’m lot confused . The new version is very powerful, but it’s very different from the old one.
I’m sorry… but I have a few questions about Scrivener 3:
With the old App that I utilized to write my novel and to export it in e-pub format, I tested it in iBooks: as soon as I tapped a (foot-)note, a small POP-UP window opened and it showed the contents of the footnotes.
Also in MOBI format with Kindle, the footnotes tapped appeared as POP-UP (I have an e-reader Kindle, the app Kindle in my iPad and the Kindle Previewer emulator in Mac).
I noticed, instead, that an ePub created with Scrivener2 has a different mechanism: tapping the footnote, the page runs until the end of the document, where are the notes.
I think it happens because Scrivener2 export in ePub2 format.
Then I have tried to open my document using Scrivener 3, choosing of exporting in ePub3, I have found the option in order to activate the FOOTNOTES as POP-UP… and it works!!! but in the window for compiling, I don’t find anymore the different options that were in Scrivener2 as the options for the PAGEBREAK BEFORE and AS IS”. I’m a little confused…
In Scrivener2, in the compile window, selecting Footnotes and Comments, I can choose the TITLE of the ENDNOTES PAGES (being me Italian, I should replace NOTES with NOTE), I don’t find this option in Scrivener 3.
Is Scrivener 3 compatible with iOS Version? For more than one year I have used both Scrivener 2 for Mac and iOS VERSION sharing documents, but the old files, *.scriv of Scrivener2 are not compatible with Scrivener3, that has somehow to reconstruct them.
Of course, a file of Scrivener3 will not be compatible at all with the old version 2, so for now, I continue to work with the version 2 and to study this beautiful version 3 that supports the Epub3 format.
In Scrivener2 I could choose the formatting of output in COMPILE—>Formatting, where I could select LAYOUT, FONTS, position of the titles of the HEADINGS (centre, left, etc.).
I directly click in the window with the SECTION TYPES (LEVEL 1+.etc.).
With Scrivener3 I can’t plan the LAYOUT of the page of OUTPUT.
The mechanism is maybe different.
I apologize for this very long post.
