I’m trying to print the index cards from my corkboard. I’m printing them onto A4 paper size exported to PDF (for now). I’ve attached a test to demonstrate the problem.
The problem is that page breaks appear in the middle of each index card on the printout, where none exist on the index card itself, breaking the notes on the index card in the middle of a sentence.
I’m assuming it’s doing this because the software thinks it’s printing onto index cards rather than A4 and is assuming how much will fit on an index card before having to break to a new one???
Is there any way to stop it doing this? Is there a way to tell it that if it’s printing to A4 it doesn’t need to break the index cards after 7-8 lines?
Thanks so much!

Can I ask why you are printing as index cards if you don’t want them to look like index cards? You assume correctly that printing index cards causes them to come out like index cards. If you want them to flow, you should print from the outliner instead of from the corkboard, or use Compile and choose only to include titles and synopses.
Hope that helps.
All the best,
I’m printing index cards when I don’t want them to look like index cards because I’m still trying to find my way around the software!
The outline view is EXACTLY what I’m looking for in PDF … thanks Keith!!
Ha, glad that helped! You can modify the print settings for the outline view, by the way, by going to File > Page Setup, choosing “Scrivener” from the “Settings” button, and then clicking on “Options…” and choosing the “Outlines” pane - there you can change the font and various other settings.
All the best,
It did! Totally sorted … had a fiddle with the print settings as you suggested and now have colour-coded titles for each card/note with headings/subheadings for sub-cards … it’s exactly what I wanted it to do.
Keith … as always, your support and your software … brilliant! So well thought out.
