I am using Scrivener Version: 184.108.40.206 Beta (1078406) 64-bit - 14 Oct 2020 on Windows 10 Home
I am really struggling to get Scrivener to apply edits to Section Layouts.
I created a test project and have 3 folders (called chapters) and one text document in each (called Scene under Manuscript. The nearest compile format that suited my needs was “Modern” but I wanted the Chapter title to be 18pt not the default 24pt. I have assigned Chapter Heading to Chapter and Section Text to Scene. I chose to edit the Chapter Heading (which creates a duplicate called Modern Copy in Project Formats) and altered the font of the “Chapter 1” text to 18pt instead of the 24pt. The text in the Layout changed but the “Chapter 1” shown in the Section Layout doesn’t change size after the edit. I did Save then Compile (to PDF).
The resulting PDF has “Chapter 1” in 24pt. The edit was not saved.
I cannot get the font size to change.
Bug? Or am I doing this all wrong?
What I could really do with is a much more detailed “manual” section describing the editing of Compile Formats.
