I’m completely new to using Scrivener 1.7.2 for Windows, and could sure use your help! I’ve bought Gwen’s book and have been unable to get a clear answer to what is (probably) a very easy solution. I’ve also looked on the forum.
I am writing a non-fiction book, which contains several chapters. Within each chapter, my writing style is such to open each chapter with a favorite quote. Next, I write a couple of paragraphs as a sort of “opening” to that chapter, which is then followed by sub-sections, all belonging to that chapter.
As it stands, the non-fiction template opens with the chapter name, then inserts a section title, then sub-section titles, and so on. I like the continuity of what this looks like once compiled, it just isn’t in the exact format that I am looking for. How do I format the way I want it (described above: (no title) opening quote, (no title) a couple of paragraphs, then section heading title with text underneath, another section heading with text underneath, etc., until the end of this chapter) and still retain the end result of this compilation, which is effectively all text together separated by sections under one chapter?
Also, with this non-fiction template, the TOC is labeling my copyright, preface, etc., as if they were EACH a new chapter, labeling in order as Chapter One, Chapter Two, even though they are separate text documents contained in my front matter folder. Once these “chapters” are all listed, my first (actual) chapter becomes Chapter Seven.
The other template options are even further away from my needs…
Any help is greatly appreciated!
