Title: Exporting to Scrivener
Post by Dominique Renauld on Jul 25th, 2011, 12:54pm

Good evening, I've tried to export my tinderbox notes to Scrivener, but I can't get to change automatically my notes into an organized outline. I have to do it manually with the "split" function. Is there any tutorial about this point ? Thank you for your help.  :)

Worth looking at this thread on the Scrivener forum: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7244&hilit=Tinderbox+export

Good morning, the fact is that the link you indicated was too much complicated for my present skill. Therefore, i had to renounce to work with scrivener. The couple i use consists in Tinderbox and Texshop, a latex editor. I've found a very empirical way of using both. For my purpose, it's very convenient, even if it's not the solution i was searching for. In brief, i use the latex code into my tinderbox document and export it directly to Texshop. This one read it without any difficulty. For example, i use the following latex marks :

\section{Problématique}

my text

\subsection{Historique}

my text

And it works very well if only you're cautious to choose the good export option (export as text, and then select entire document and text only). I'm about to elaborate a short tutorial document to present the different phases of that way of working. But if you have any idea to suggest me and help me to use Tinderbox and Texshop with a more refine method, i would thank you !

This seems to be a nice solution.  And we're looking into ways to make getting started with Scrivener export less forbidding.

I use a somewhat similar set-up to Dominique. I add LaTeX code directly into Tinderbox and export via Nakakoji View. Through a combination of the magic of Keyboard Maestro and the auto-preview feature of Latexian, I have it set up so that a keyboard combination triggers an automatic LaTeX preview of what I'm writing in Tinderbox.

As such, I have found Tinderbox to be by far the best editor for LaTeX. I can do things like organize sentences and paragraphs hierarchically, keep track of them with agents, and meanwhile have an ongoing view of the finished product with LaTeX preview. It's also easy to set up custom syntax highlighting.

(Also, for references purposes, this thread should contain a link to this one.)
