Paragraph formatting

Is there a way of standardizing paragraph formatting across all documents in Scrivener? For instance standardizing the ruler to my choice of paragraph indenting and tab stops.

Text I’ve imported from Pages come in fine. But newly created documents have very different font calls, tab stops, first line indents, line spacing and spacing between paragraphs. How can I standardize all these so I have a comfortable writing and editing environment?


This article should give you some tips on how to set things up, as well as explaining how Scrivener works.

Additionally, you may be interested in the “Paste and Match Style” command in the Edit menu. This will strip out all formatting from the clipboard so that the stuff coming in from Word or wherever matches your normal working environment.
