Export Markdown from Scrivener with this Compile Setting

Scrivener tweeted this morning:

Windows Tip: Create custom project templates by setting up a bare bones project with settings you want and use File > Save As Template.

You can go much further than that on your Mac. I’m sharing my “Markdown export with titles” compile setting here. This is just a minor adjustment to a built-in setting, but the built-in one doesn’t include the titles of the documents. Normally you would like the document’s titles to appear in Markdown format, when exporting to Markdown. Just enable “Compile for: MultiMarkdown" and also enable all Title checkboxes under Formatting. I think that’s all that I changed. Then just click on Compile and you’ll get a Markdown document with all the document titles in the format:

Put this .plist file in ~/Library/Application Support/Scrivener/CompileSettings and restart Scrivener.
