Hello everyone,

I just started using Scrivener and am really excited about this tool. However, I accidentally deleted some part of the quick tutorial :/
Is there any way to retrieve it again? Can I download it somewhere and import it? I didn't find it anywhere yet.

Apart from the fact that you have posted this in a Scapple forum, when you say it's about Scrivener … ;)

If, with Scrivener closed, you locate the "Tutorial.scriv" folder where you saved it on your hard disk—presumably somewhere in "Documents" or some such—and delete the whole folder, when you re-open Scrivener, choose the Tutorial from the start-up screen and it will create a new instance, prompting you once again to save it in a convenient location.
