My projects look like this:
Each document allows me to sub-divide into manageable chunks of writing, but I want the compiled project to look like all the text in a folder is a single document. (If I merge them, I can no longer edit them as smaller segments.)
No matter what compiler settings I use for text separators, I get at least one blank line between text documents.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
Stuck in the 60s, and now stuck with text separatprs
If I choose ‘single return’ from the ‘separators’ tab of the compile menu, I get a seamless document—sans blank lines.
Under compile > transformations, have got ‘remove trailing whitespace from documents’ ticked’?
Also, if you turn on the invisibles in Scrivener (Format > Options > Show Invisibles), can you see if you have got carriage returns at the end of each file?
The compile >transformations setting above should remove these for you, but you can also delete them manually so that the final line does not have a carriage return at the end. If it does have a carriage return and you then have a ‘single return’ as your option in the ‘separators’ tab (and you don’t have ‘remove trailing whitespace from documents’ ticked), you will end up with two (or possibly more) carriage returns/a blank line between compiled files.
Thanks for transforming my compiled output!
Sounds as though it worked for you. Unstuck!
Happy to have been able to help.
