I have been using the trial version of Scrivener for a few days, and decided to purchase it today. Great software, and I simply loved the writing experience.
However if someone could help me with the following.
I have 25 pages in scrivener, organized by the document structure (a service guide paper)
Roughly speaking the structure looks like :
Purpose of Guide
What is a service
Key Concepts and Terms
First question, can the hierarchy on the left not get enumerated in inside Scrivener ? I would like for it to be a meta tag, not ‘hard-code it into the name’ becuase that makes it too hard to manage in large documents, especially if I want to move or delete a page. If not in scrivener, can this be done when exporting the document ? I’d like to have the following in my final exported document :
1.1 Purpose of Guide
1.2 What is a service
2 Key Concepts and Terms
2.1.1 idea 1
2.1.2 idea 2
Also, my final draft needs to be in word. However I have yet to be able to find a suitable way of exporting the document out of Scrivener and into word where the titles in the hierarchy are truly treated as headers in the output. Level 1 and 2 seems to go fine, but level 3 for instance, and level 4 gets same formatting as level 2.
Furthermore, it seems level 1 and 2 are simply “formatted” as a header. The exported word file does not seem to have been formatted with the MS Word ‘Styles’ i,e. ‘Header 1’, or ‘Header 2’.
Becuase the next step in my workflow is … I need to build a TOC.
I thought all of this was supposed to be pretty smooth, but it looks like I am better off just writing in Word instead … I hate to manually do all this stuff in World land.
As an additional piece of info, in my document,

Thanks for any and all help, tips or tricks. Thanks.
