I have been searching for some time on how to get scrivener to replace specific characters with another font and a different character. I believe I need to use RegEx to do this but have not been able to figure out the syntax at all.
The issue is this. I am trying to make a template so that all future projects will have the same format- Chapter headings are one font/size, section font is something else. This works perfect, except when it comes to scene breaks within a section (time jumps). While writing I simply enter # and keep writing. I don’t want that in the final though. When I change all # to the symbol in another font, I see it in the sections (also something I had to do manually or prior to importing from Word- only reason it was in word was for professional editors).
Prior to compiling, I see whatever font I had for everything and the symbol I want. Then I compile and it converts ALL the text to appropriate fonts. Headings Trajan Pro (or whatever) and sections as Garamond. The problem becomes that scrivener sees the symbol I want and converts to Garamond, so now instead of the embellish symbol from the specific font, I see the number 7.
I eventually will want to change the first letter of each chapter to a different font to.
