I am trying to figure out how to edit an already created Scrivener project’s formatting in texts that I am writing. When I created this project nearly 4 years ago, I knew nothing of Scrivener. Now, as would be presumed, I am quite familiar with it and adore it every day. However, I don’t know how to fix this formatting issue I am having. I have gone into tools on multiple occasion, quite a long while ago, and edited the “editor” section to befitt my specs, however, I noticed/learned that that really only effects new projects. That is obviously a problem for me, because there is no way in hell I am making a new project/transferring it over. It’s just simply too large, too extensive. So what am I left with?
I’ve tried using the copy and paste formatting tool, however that hasn’t helped one of my many “wrongly” formatted texts within the project. This is due to it removing all fonts, italicized words, highlighted sentences and paragraphs, all bold text, etc. It changes the indents and margins correctly, sure, but in the process ruins/shifts all the text to plain. This, again, obviously won’t do. So I reiterate, what am I left with? Anything?
The reason this is a serious problem is it is affecting my compiling feature, when I try to transfer my project over to a word doc, etc. Since the formating has not been set it many texts within my Scrivener project, it cuts off pages of work because the margins and indents are whacked. If anyone knows of a solution to this formatting issue, I would be forever grateful!
Thank you for reading,
