Two years ago I compiled a book in Scrivener 1. After that I’ve upgraded to Scrivener 3, but I’ve imported the compile settings from Scrivener 1. Now I’m trying to compile two books in Scrivener 3, one of them being an updated version of the book I’ve made with Scrivener 1.
However, unlike in my compiled word/rtf-documents made with Scrivener 1, in the documents I generate now, every page with a title has an empty line above it (mostly Courier 12, for some reason, the standard font, which I don’t use), with varying line spacing (1-1,15 I suspect).
I don’t want this. I just want the titles at the very top of the page. I can’t seem to find the compile-setting to turn this off. I’ve picked page breaks for separators.
Can anybody help me out and tell me how to get rid of those empty lines above my titles? My books have loads of chapters, so I don’t want to have correct all titles manually. I’d rather find a real solution.
I thought it had to do with this, it was at 2.0. When I turn it down to 1.0 the title (as depicted in this screen) snaps to the top. However, after compiling, in the actual project, it just decreases the space between the title and the first line. And there is still a line above the title…
Because RTF is Scrivener’s native format and I believe in the Windows version it still first compiles the RTF which it then passes through a third party converter to create the DOCX. Word must be better at converting RTF to DOCX than any third party converter.
On the Mac, though, KB has rolled his own DOCX compiler, but as I always use RTF, as my word processor is also native RTF, I don’t know if there are any issues … certainly nobody seems to be reporting any.
