I am completely new to Scrivener but already worked through the whole Getting Started Tutorial and have a rough overview. Now I tried for like an hour format single Parts of my document and won’t get it right.
What I want to do: As I write a Wordpress tutorial, I want parts of the flowing text to be formatted different to highlight them e.g. as “folder” or “code”. So I wrote a sentence and highlighted a word, set the font and accent color and then chose “Format/Formatting/New Preference from Selection” I use Scrivener in german so here is a screenshot:
I saved the formatting for further use and my highlighted word now already has this setting - worked fine.
BUT if I now highlight another word or part of a paragraph and choose the new formatting preference from the dialog it will always apply to the whole paragraph the cursor is in.
What is the right way to have a pre setting that I can reuse for single highlighted parts of the text? And if possible (which I hope) will those seperatley formatted parts be overidden if I would change e.g. the global font for the text when I compile the draft?
Thanks a lot…
