I have tried researching this issue in the manual, on-line, and in Scrivener for Dummies but I can’t figure it out.
When I export a document as RTF to be able to work on it in Word (to run a couple of grammar addins) I get as expected in Word, the same font size etc as the original, with soft-returns at the end of lines.
When I Save-as from Word, in either RTF or DOC(X) and import to Scrivener I get a document that has hard returns at each EOL.
I also get hard returns if I do a straight Ctrl-a (copy) in word and then paste into Scrivener. That has me puzzled because the Word version does not have hard-returns.
If I Save-As in TXT, (any variety), I get soft returns on import to Scrivener but no preservation of font size etc.
So how do I do this? I want to get my Word files into Scrivener in the same font and size that they left Scrivener with, and with soft returns at the end of lines instead of hard-returns.
Is there a way in Scrivener to convert hard-returns? Or is there a way to import raw text and have Scrivener apply the default manuscript settings I have (font-size etc) with no hard returns except for paragraph markers of course?
(I am using the latest Beta but this has always been this way for me. Sorry if I have missed something obvious – I would appreciate some advice.)
