dipping toe

Maybe I’m brain dead from too many years on Windoze, BUT, (there is always a big butt), am I missing a general configuration option? Like a place to set the variabe for “title”, “surname”, and such? Seems like it would be in a master manuscript setting some where? Just a confused newbie, fjohn

Not a formal place, not yet anyway. If you are using the standard novel manuscript template, you’ll find a place where you can insert your surname into the header (second tab of Compile), but this is just a text field.

Most of the things about templates are just plain text. Scrivener isn’t really a “fill in the blanks” kind of application, due to its high degree of flexibility.

Got it. Thanks very much. Don’t know why I didn’t see it.

p.s., I was born in Portland Oregon and transplanted to NYC. Small world. LOL!
