Structuring with Label View

JH / 23 AUG 2017

For our second post on the upcoming Scrivener 3, I'm excited this week to show off a new corkboard layout that takes advantage of one of my favourite features in Scrivener: coloured labels. Labels have always been helpful for organizing your project—you might use them to mark a scene's viewpoint character, to indicate a document's main topic, or to track locations for a script. In Scrivener 3, you can further use labels to visually chart your project's structure by the points important to you.

Project Notes are Dead, Long Live Project Notes!

IaP / 18 AUG 2017

When we first started putting together The Big List of what Scrivener 3.0 was going to be about, high upon it was the nebulous goal of making the overall experience more cohesive and streamlined. We may spend a little time going over some of the many finer points of that project in a future article, but for now I wish to focus on one aspect of that, something that some might consider to be a smaller adjustment, but one that has changed how I organise work inside of my projects—and reintroduced me to a feature that I had let languish in my own daily use of Scrivener.

Scrivener in App Store Best of 2016

KB / 8 DEC 2016

Many thanks to the lovely Apple folk at all the stores that have included Scrivener for iPad in their "Best of 2016" app picks. It's been a great year (for Scrivener, I mean - clearly it's not been a great year for celebrities), and being picked as one of the Best of 2016 is a spiffing way to end it.

Bookmark Your Favourites in Scrivener for iOS

JH / 3 AUG 2016

Drilling through a hefty binder of hierarchical files on an iPhone can be a chore, so Scrivener on iOS lets you bookmark documents to make them easily accessible. Just tap the ribbon icon in the editor footer to add the file to a special “Bookmarks” group at the top of the binder. You can also swipe left on a row in the binder and bookmark the item from the “More” menu.

Scrivener for iOS: Exporting Single Files

KB / 29 JUL 2016

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.

Compiling the Draft in Scrivener for iOS

IaP / 28 JUL 2016

One of the principal concepts behind Scrivener is that you work with a long document by breaking it up into as many smaller chunks of text as you desire, rather than keeping it all in one long file that you have to scroll through. While the software makes it easy to work with your text in this fashion, you will still need a simple and effective method to create a single document out of all of those little pieces. In this way you can share some or all your work with others, save backup copies to text files, print out your work to paper or even quickly create a PDF for proofreading in your favourite viewer.
