STOP auto chapters during compiliation

I keep finding posts on how to compile with auto-numbered chapters but I don’t want numbered chapters. I want them to go away. I used to have that when I compiled but I don’t know how. Now everything I do is auto-numbered and it’s driving me INSANE. How do I make it stop? I want to compile and just have my chapter titles. No numbers. No “chapter 1”. Nothing. Dear God, please help me!

What version Scrivener?

Version: - 14 Nov 2019

Version: - 14 Nov 2019. I just want the chapter names to come up. I’ve set up the folders as Chapters. I keep putting Chapter <$t> but it’s not doing anything. What do I do to make the folder name show?

That is a pretty comprehensive tutorial on the chapter system in Scrivener. It’s where I go to look when something isn’t doing what I want it to, :mrgreen:

I assume you’re referring to the Compile > Formatting > Section Layout, and that you’re specifying Chapter <$t> in the Prefix field. Instead of doing that, just make the Prefix field blank.

If that doesn’t give you what you want, then you may not be working with the right Type. But the only way to know for sure is if you provide a screenshot similar to the one below, that contains your Formatting pane and the Binder, so we can see which Binder items (highlighted in yellow) correspond to the Type you’ve selected.


Holy guacamole, that worked! Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve been looking all over the manuals including For Dummies but didn’t see it. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
