# Basis Header Level from MMD to Latex

Hey there,
not so sure if I am just too stupid for this, but I'll just ask.. ;)
I am using Scrivener (in the latest version 1.9.6) to write a thesis and have been very happy with the MMD>Latex output. But I just found out, that the basis level conversion doesn't work as I want it to.. In the standard configuration of the output, it makes \part dividers of the highest level of my manuscript. I need \chapters instead, but adding a MMD-Metadata output option in Scrivener doesn't change anything besides adding for example a \def\basis-headerlevel{3} in the first line of my latex-file. I couldn't find anything about this as a latex command, so I think it is a problem of the MMD-conversion?!

Ok.. so by looking through the forums of Scrivener I found kind of a workaround: http://disq.us/p/w06yrj
It's more like a trick of adding another # to the chapter titles from Scrivener and it seems that the mmd-conversion works this way..
But shouldn't the normal way work as well?! So if I have a chapter name with only one # and the basis header level is 2, the conversion should add another #?!

Daniel,

It's "Base Header Level", not "basis".

There are also specific metadata keys for certain output formats if you
need different settings for LaTeX, HTML, etc.

Hope this helps!

Fletcher
