As I get close to finishing my first project, I’ve started looking at using Create Space to print a few copies for my first readers (though I won’t do this until I’ve finished the third draft or so, but it’s still fun to look). However, I can’t figure out how to make Scrivener output the pages in the right format.
Specifically, I need “mirror margins”, but I can’t find any way to do this in Scrivener. Am I just not looking in the right place? Is it an OS X option? If it isn’t available at all, what do others recommend?
Also, I’m having a hard time getting it to justify my text. I’ve set custom formatting options, like so:
Yes in that you are looking to use a drafting tool for final page layout. Page layout is outside the scope of scrivener and should be done in a dedicated word processing software like Pages, Word, etc.
What are “mirror margins”? I have never heard of them!
As for justification, that should work, but in your screenshot you have selected folders in the “Formatting” pane of the Compile sheet - have you definitely set up justification for the text row as well?
