Hi,
I'm playing with the export feature to create an e-book, so far so great except my first chapter is titled Prologue when it clearly isn't. How do I take the Prologue mention off ?

Thank you.

Hello!

Yes, sorry, the way this is setup is far from ideal at the moment and we are looking to improve it asap.

To remove the 'Prologue' title at the moment, you have to set the first scene as a chapter (i.e. chapter one).

To do this, open up the first scene, go to the Overview tab and check the box next to 'Chapter Head'.

Again, I realise this is not at all intuitive or user friendly and hope to fix it soon!

Thanks for the swift response.

I can't really go with the chapter option since this is a collection of related shor-stories, but I will edit this later.

I will await the version that will fix this feature with both eyes open.

Thanks again.

Ohhhhh, so that's how that works. (Give me a couple years, eventually I get it.)

(Apologies for the triple postings. The hamsters must be drunk again.)

I'm running the desktop version on Parallels for Mac and the Prologue chapter title is still the default.  I see the work-around suggested above, but wonder what's the status of the fix for this problem?

Apologies, this hasn't worked its way to the top of the list yet - but I'll give it a bump now and see if we can get this sorted sooner rather than later.
