Scrivener for iOS: Exporting Single Files

A writing app wouldn’t be much use if you couldn’t get your work out of it. In an earlier blog post, we talked about Compile, which allows you to export or print your entire Draft folder (or a subfolder of it) as a single document, piecing together the fragments of your text into a complete manuscript.

Sometimes you’ll want to export (or print) individual documents from Scrivener, however. Fortunately, this couldn’t be simpler: just tap on the “share” button at the bottom of the editor, choose a file format, and off you go. You can choose to email the document to someone, print it, or open it in another app.

Scrivener allows you to export to PDF, Word (.docx), RTF, plain text or Final Draft (.fdx) formats, which means that you can easily share a document with someone on a PC, open a text document in Pages, or send a script document to Final Draft for some final touches.
