Hi there! I’ve searched your archives for solutions to the pesky prologue problem and have not found a satisfactory solution.
Problem: Prologues get titled with the prefix you set up for chapters.
Solution one: Place the prologue file into the front matter folder.
Why this fails: If you use a scene break separator like “<<<” or “***” and add that in by choosing to place that as a custom separator between adjacent files, you will get that separator placed above the “prologue” title, and there seems to be no way to suppress it.
Solutions two: Add a section prefix to prologue and another section prefix for chapter one.
Why this fails: The system is set up to recognize the prologue as part of Level 1, so no matter what I do with the fiction template, it will title the prologue as chapter one. I’ve tried placing it as a file under Manuscript but before the ch 1 folder, placing it as its own folder before the ch 1 folder, adding the unique formatting for that page as a prefix and as formatting in the file. It seems I’ve exhausted possible workarounds here, so I’m feeling pretty frustrated with this!
