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’.

Scrivener for macOS and Windows allows you to view (and edit) two documents right alongside one another.

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.
