Hey there! I purchased Scrivener recently and decided today was the day to work my way through the tutorial.
Everything was going great until I got to Part 3, Step 16: Compiling the Draft. I’m on steps 6-8, which has me playing around with the Formatting tab in the Compile window.
I had no trouble with Step 6.
Step 7 is where things have now gone awry. I can check the box to add the Title, and I can again change the formatting for that Title. But when I attempt to change the formatting of the rest of the text (Step 7.b.), I am unable to do so. I can select the text, but all of the formatting options remain grayed out - I cannot move the rule to change indenting. I cannot change the font, line spacing, etc.
I tried unchecking the “Text” box and then re-checking it to see if that cleared it up. No dice. I then attempted to format the text in the next row down (ie, step 9) - again, the text cannot be formatted. If I check the box to add a title, I can format the Title, but not the text.
I even went back up to the folder level and re-checked the text box - nope, cannot format the text.
Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a bona fide bug in the tutorial? Or, worse, is this a bug in the program, so that when I attempt to format my real document, I’m going to run into the same brick wall?
