Including file names in compiled document

Hello all,

I’m trying to merge a large number of Word documents (@ 60–100) into a PDF using Scrivener’s Compile mode. I would like the file name to appear as the section title before each document but can’t find the settings to do this. I’m relatively new to Scrivener, so apologies in advance if this is a basic question. Haven’t been able to find the answer online or in the Scrivener documentation either.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Sure, this is easy to do, we call these “titles” in Scrivener, which is probably why you didn’t find much on the Web or in the docs. Just go into the Formatting compile option pane and check off “Title” for the icon types you wish to print the names of in the output. You can style the title using the mock editor below this list.

If you haven’t already done so, you should check out the interactive tutorial in the Help menu. It explains some of these concepts, and in the step on compiling, it does go over adding titles to the output.
