  1. What happened to #5?

  2. I know this isn’t the right spot for this, but where is FU 1.5 going to be broadcasting from? The original FU site? The S&S site? Some other site? Just wondering.

  3. Charles Tutt says:

    Great info. I’d really like to have in in text format as well so I can refer to it as I’m producing my Scrivener content. Pausing and backing up and re-playing video is VERY inefficient and annoying.

  4. Unfortunately this didn’t help me. My issue is that my back matter is getting chapter titles and forced formatting like new paragraphs. I just want to list my contact info. Anyone have help for that?

    • Hi Kyle, I think I can help. Under the Compile menu you’ll need to check the “As Is” for those sections that you don’t want chapter titles. That will then not apply the formatting under the “Formatting” section of Compile.
