Scrivener iOS: Formatting Palette

DMJ / 27 JUL 2016

Scrivener’s editor on iOS is a full rich-text environment - in other words, you have complete control over the formatting and appearance of your text right inside the editor. When you start editing a document on the iPad, a paintbrush icon appears in the nav bar at the top of the screen. Tapping on this opens the formatting palette (if you’ve used Pages before, this will be immediately familiar). On the iPhone, the paintbrush icon can be found in the extended keyboard row (the extra row of buttons that appears above the keyboard).

Scrivener iOS: Recent Documents List

DMJ / 19 JUL 2016

Scrivener for iPad has a Quick Reference feature that provides you with a way of referring to another document or research material whilst writing in the editor. But what about referring to other documents or research material on your iPhone, where screen size dictates that it’s not possible to view two panes alongside one another?

Scrivener iOS: Outliner

DMJ / 11 JUL 2016

As already expounded in the previous post about expanding outlines, Scrivener’s "binder" (its sidebar) is essentially an outliner. If you tap the gear icon in the footer of the sidebar, you’ll open ‘Project Settings’. Within binder options, you can turn on ‘Show Labels’, ‘Tint Rows with Label Colors’, ‘Show Status’ and ‘Shows Synopses’. With all those binder options engaged, things are about to get more colourful and informative.

Scrivener iOS: Pinch Zoom

DMJ / 1 JUL 2016

Has it been a long day? Have you started squinting at the text in Scrivener’s editor on your iPad or iPhone? The good news is that you don’t require an optometrist. You’re only a simple iOS gesture from salvation. Most text based apps currently have you picking through a complicated menu path with your poor vision to increase text scale, but with Scrivener you can simply pinch to zoom anywhere within your editor in order to make your text larger or smaller.

Site Licensing

DMJ / 13 FEB 2015

We’re always trying to make it easier for institutions, along with individuals, to adopt Scrivener into their writing workflow. To this end, making it more readily available to larger organisations, we wrote a blog post back in November 2012 that covers the process of obtaining Scrivener licensing for universities and businesses http://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/?p=329. It details the steps involved and options available when using our direct web-store http://www.getscrivener.com, and provides information about securing volume discounts. It also mentions site and campus licensing for institutions requiring 500 or more Scrivener licences.

Scrivener Licensing for Universities & Businesses

DMJ / 26 NOV 2012

Some time ago, I wrote a blog post about 'Becoming a Sales Affiliate for Scrivener' http://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/?p=98. This detailed how you could go about becoming a member of a virtual sales force for Scrivener, earning a 20% commission in the process. This method of getting a little something back as you spread news of Scrivener still exists, but what I wanted to cover today is bulk licence purchasing. This would typically be useful for a business or university.

Becoming a Sales Affiliate for Scrivener

DMJ / 18 JUN 2010

Every now and again over the last few years, Keith and I have been fortunate enough to receive contact from enthusiastic users of Scrivener that want to help spread word of the application far and wide. Keith duly wrote some HTML code that provided blog and website buttons linking to our site. The buttons ranged from the hilarity of “Write here, write now” to The Hudsucker Proxy-inspired “Y’know - for writers”. These buttons can still be found on our Literature & Latte website by going via http://www.literatureandlatte.com/about.html, and clicking on the ‘Spread the Word’ link.
