<$hn> tag

Hello,

I need help. I am writings academic articles on Scrivener and need to have hierarchical numbers on each section according to its level:
1
1.1
1.2
2
2.1
2.1.2
2.2…

When I use the <$hn> tag, the tag is not recognized and I get
<$hn>
after compiling the article.

If I use <$n>, it works fine and compiles as numbers (1, 2, 3…) but does not consider folders levels.

My system:
Windows 7 Home Basic. 64 bits
Scrivener: 1.7.2.0

thanks for your help,
Marcello

The <$hn> tags don’t work at present when included in the main document text unless it is also used in the title, prefix or suffix. They can be inserted as title prefixes or suffixes in the Formatting section of compile, where you can also adjust formatting for the different levels of the hierarchy if you want. As an example, check out the “Non-Fiction with Sub-Heads (Hierarchical)” or “Enumerated Outline” compile presets. Neither of these may be exactly what you’re after, but they should give you a better idea how the tag can be used to define your different sections in the compiled document.
