I'm trying to compile a file to HTML in Scrivener for Windows. When I open the file in a text editor, I don't see my content. Has anyone had luck compiling to HTML? Or is it possible that function isn't working properly in the latest version of Scrivener for Windows (1.9.6)?

Thank, James. You're right. If the folks in this group don't have a solution, L&L is the next best place to go!

Editors usually edit in Word. To make long documents easier to navigate, they style headings so that they show up in Word's Navigation Pane, which then works exactly like Scrivener's Binder. Here's my question: Can you compile a doc in Scrivener so that when it's exported to Word, the headings are "live" and therefore show up in Word's Navigation Pane? Or do you have to style those headings in Word, after the export?

If a Scrivener project is created on a PC, is it possible to open that file on a Mac—provided that Scrivener for Mac has been installed on the Mac computer?

Here's a link to browser safe fonts:

Personally, I recommend using something like VERDANA. It has the same font name in Windows, OSX, iOS, and is available for linux as well.

Besides the compatibility, it's a pleasant looking font. It's my choice in Scrivener; at 12pt to be specific.

Does Scrivener for Windows have a clear formatting option? I find that traces of a style remain, even after you remove it. I can eventually horse things around by cutting a section and using Paste and Match Style, but this is really inefficient.

Here's a concrete example:

I applied bullet style, changed my mind and removed the bullet, and the text on the following line was automatically indented, as if the previous line still had a bullet applied.

+Corina Koch MacLeod The "Strip leading tabs" menu option for the editor won't be in the next Windows build, but you will be able to remove them via compile replacements for your final document.
