This is the third time I have tried to convert Scrivener to Word. In some sections, the margins are all messed up, running off the page to the right. I don't remember the problems for the other times, but I had to go through and reformat to make the document readable. I'm using a MacBook Pro, but I have the Mac version of Scrivener and of Word. Any suggestions? I'm about ready to give up and go back to Word for the whole process.

Here's how I did it.

  1. From the Compile screen, click the icon to edit the Section Layout (making sure to use the Section Section Type so the changes I'm making are applied to my section text). image.thumb.png.8ace607af7ee2509cc2c0fe3f418dd43.png
  2. Click the button to Edit "Section Text" layout (or whatever your section is called).image.png.f747d1f0d7e476b3eed814c4ca66cddb.png
  3. For your Section text, select the Override text and notes formatting check box. image.thumb.png.8a1fa66353aeb651daf8ba6c75a83863.png
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click Compile.

Let me know how that works.

Thank you, Johne. I did not mean to take advantage of ... well, yes, I guess I did. I don't do Facebook, and I knew you would know the answer.

 

Again, thank you verrrrry much.
