Newbie looking for Chapter/section options

I’m new to Scrivener and trying to figure out how to do things the way I’d like.

When compiling, I’d like it to order and number things with either Parts/Chapters or Chapters/parts, etc.

For example I have my folders set something like this:

  • Part 1
    –Chapter 1
    –Chapter 2

When compiling I get:

  • Part One
    –Chapter One

I’m not sure why I’m getting the # instead of the actual number I have for the documents in the chapter folders

Hey :smiley:

The numbers in compiled documents come from…
Compile > Formatting > Section Layout (for EACH section)
… and the placeholder tag used (see Help > Placeholder Tags List)

What placeholder tag have you got for the level that is returning the #?

Where are you seeing the #? In a table of contents only? In the body of the compiled document?

Thanks for the info. I love Scrivener, but never really learned much about it and there’s a million options. I just started writing and working in a way that made sense to me.

I’m getting the # in the actual compiled document. But I think I figured it out after you pointed me in the right direction.

Under Compile>Formatting, I had to check the box for Title under “Level 3+”

Then under Compile>Separators, I changed Text Separator from “Custom - #” to “Page Break”

I think that got things going the way I wanted. I really appreciate the help! :smiley:

Glad you got it working. Happy to have helped.
