Solving the Table of contents corruption in Scrivener

This actually turned out to be a couple of issue that caused the problem that drove me crazy. The first was (may not supposed to have an effect but did anyway) Was chapter Lables. Chapter Labels

I only had the Chapter Label set on a few of the chapters and it turned out that it was the unset one causing the issue.

The next issue was in the compiling stage.

When compiling for Kindle (.mobi) I had previously selected “Generate Html table of contents” and this connected to the lable issue caused the corrupt TOC which had paragraphs for toc items!
I unselected this and selected “Use flat list of contents in Navigation controls (NCX)” and now with my custom TOC everything compiles properly and menu items work on the kindle app!

Scrivener driving me crazy (again!)

So I’m trying to export my manuscript to my tablet so I can review it and see what need fixing but everything I compile to mobi Scrivener messes up the menu and adds random text from random chapters.

This is why I gave up on it. As the manuscript is stuck in it (for the moment) i need to work out what is going wrong!

Guess what the problem chapters are?

Yup it’s the duels!

Edit: After half a pint of Japanese Beer and with my nephew curled up on top of me I found the issue was down to some lables that I hadn’t set!

Learning Scrivener

After writing reaching a target of 40,000 words for the NaNoWriMo Camp. I received a 50% Discount on Scrivener by https://www.literatureandlatte.com

I see a lot of positive comments about this program so I thought I would give it a try. 
On first opening, I am a little baffled on how to use it. There is so much information that can be filled in about one books and so many notes that can be made without it being added to the book it self. I have been happy using Pages 09 so far but Scrivener makes Pages look like a notepad app.

I am slowly working my way through various functions of the program and I will keep going.

Anyway the first drafts are being proof read atm so I can start working on the next books. I have started making notes book one will involve a airship battle and the other,
Well it will be a dark book indeed.

 

See you in port next time Airship captains.
