My apologies if what I’m asking is very easy to find. I’ve done a little searching through the documentation but I haven’t found an answer.
OK, I have to start using LaTex for a project I’m working on. Since I already use Scrivener and there is a way to convert documents to LaTeX via MultiMarkdown, I thought I would give it a try. Many of my documents are already formatted (in the limited way Scrivener allows you to format them), so for instance I have used boldface and italics and I have examples that are formatted in the following way:
(1) Example 1
(2) Example 2
(3) Example 3
The first question I have is if there is a way to convert all of this formatting to MultiMarkdown codes. I see there is a built in functionality via Format > Convert > Bold and Italics to MultiMarkdown syntax. This would already save me a long time except for the fact that it doesn’t appear to work for a whole project. I can only make it work for each one individual document. As I organize long books and articles by dividing them up in a large number of documents corresponding to chapters, sections and subsections, having to go document through document would involve quite a long time.
I’m I out of luck? That is, is the only way to create LaTeX documents from Scrivener formatting them with the MultiMarkdown (or directly with the LaTeX) syntax from the very beginning?
The other question I have has to do with the LaTeX output I’m getting for certain formatting. For instance, I’m loosing all of the “carriage returns” in my examples. When I compile the Scrivener project, the output document has my examples like this:
- Example 1 (2) Example 2 (3) Example 3
Also, if I have a word or a short sentence indented with a Tab, I get the following LaTeX code:
This results in a change of font which I imagine one can configure via LaTeX.
If the questions I’m asking have a very obvious answer which is documented somewhere, please point me to such document. Otherwise, I would really appreciate any help you can give me with this. Thanks in advance.
