I want to prevent scrivener from compiling my header on the first page of each chapter. My headers including a title and my name on alternating pages (reverso/facto) as well as a page number. I do not want to display any of this info on the first page of each chapter but I do want scrivener to continue counting page numbers up, even on pages without a page number.
Is there a way to do this?
There should be an option that works for you:
- Open File ▸ Compile…, and double-click on the compile Format you use, in the left sidebar, to edit it.
- In the Page Settings compile format pane, look for Different header and footer on pages following page breaks, and click that.
- Click on the “Header and Footer Text” tab, and inspect the “New Pages” category. You may want to place the page number centre-bottom on these pages, or just have nothing at all printed.
