I working on a project that needs to keep certain words that are repeatedly used in one font and the rest of the text in a different font. Is there a way to do that without having to manually change each word? That would take me forever. I’ve been trying figure this out for hours. Any help would be great.
Probably the easiest way would be to set up a preset, and assign a keyboard shortcut to the preset. So, set up one word how you want it, select it, and then go to Format > Formatting > New Preset From Selection and set it up as a character-only preset that saves the font (don’t include paragraph formatting). Name it something unique, then use the System Preferences “Keyboard” pane to create a new keyboard shortcut to the name of the preset you created. Then, whenever you type word that needs this font, just double-click into the word to select it, hit the keyboard shortcut to apply the preset, and then hit the right arrow to move to the end of the selection and carry on typing.
Hope that helps!
All the best,
I see what you mean. Unfortunately, I have too many words to set it up like that, and besides I would still have to go in and change them all individually. Is there a way it could work with something like auto-complete or even in Scriptwriting (perhaps)?
No, that wouldn’t work, and auto-complete is plain text only. If there are specific words that always need to be set up like this you would be better off using something like TextExpander - tools like that can be set up to enter a word in a specific format whenever you type a combination of characters, and they work with all text editors and word processors, including Scrivener.
All the best,
