I am relatively new to Scrivener and writing a qualitative dissertation. I will be quoting quite regularly 2 two types of interviews I conducted — individual interviews, and couple interviews (with 2 people present ) —and I want these quotes to be indented like block quotes. However , I don’t want them to take the same style as a regular block quote so I can easily distinguish these quotes from my primary material from quotes from the secondary literature that I review.
Now I am thinking I furthermore need 2 separate styles for these 2 types of interview quotes (since the quotes from couple interviews have several speakers, and the others don’t, and I eventually want them to have a different look in the final output) and I wonder how to set up these styles. More specifically, I want the speaker abbreviations (e.g. “M:” for name beginning with M) to align horizontally, and the content of what they are saying indented and also aligned horizontally.
Perhaps it is also worth noting what I eventually want to do with the style, in case that’s relevant. I eventually want to compile via MMD to LaTeX (once I get around to learning exactly how to do that) and imagine the output would have to be something that could carry two arguments. When working exclusively in LaTeX before the dissertation I e.g. created an environment using etoolbox change page with two arguments, it looked something like this
I am not sure this is the most elegant way to do it but I imagine if I want an indent after the speaker abbreviation and both the abbreviations and the actual quote to align, I also need to set up a Style in Scrivener that can distinguish these elements. Is that even possible and how would one go about it?
Hope I have made myself more or less clear…
