Re: Stuck on Step 20 of Tutorial

Thanks - I can see that. Since you're working on the tutorial... it does get a bit confusing just after the instruction to split the window. Things happen in the wrong window, and you have to keep selecting the right window (for example, when Sheets is selected in the Binder, the focus goes to the w...

Stuck on Step 20 of Tutorial

Still struggling to finish this tutorial. I'm on Step 20, which is pretty much gobbledegook to me. "Now we’re going to tell Scrivener that the documents inside the 'Sheets' folder should be treated as document templates—that is, that we want to be able to create new documents based on them: Cli...

Re: Scrivener is way more difficult than I expected

Thanks for the advice, guys. I'm just about to read the last part of the tutorial, and then I'll try editing one of my own documents. Hopefully I'll find that easier going than the tutorial. What I think would be very useful is a page somewhere giving simple "how to" instructions on the va...

Scrivener is way more difficult than I expected

OK, feedback... I downloaded Scrivener six days ago, and I've spent several hours every day going through the tutorial (which is supposed to take 2 hours). I just finished Part 5 today. I'm finding it far more heavy-going than I had anticipated, and than the promotional video led me to believe. I ca...

It costs $40 now. You and your big mouth.

Re: Stuck at Part 4 of the manual - Help?

It's not going to explode. Well that's reassuring... but this software is far more complicated than I had expected, and I'm not the most technical person in the world. If I'm doing something wrong I want to find out what it is before I continue to the next part. Scrivenings mode is for viewing mult...

Re: Stuck at Part 4 of the manual - Help?

Yes, that's the "Scrivenings mode" I was referencing earlier. Now I'm really confused. I've been following the instructions all the way through, step by step, so whatever mode I'm in must be the mode I'm supposed to be in. Can you tell me what mode I should be in? And how do I get out of ...

Re: Stuck at Part 4 of the manual - Help?

Thanks for your help... The title in the Binder didn't highlight for me when I split the page, as it did for you. I can highlight it manually by clicking on it, but if it's supposed to highlight automatically does that mean I might have a glitch? Also, the instructions say "everything prior to ...

Re: Scrivener software won't install

In case it helps anyone else who encounters the same problem, I was able to install the software by sending the installer to a thumb drive. It opened when I clicked on it from there (I have no idea why, or even why I thought of trying that, but anyway it worked).

Stuck at Part 4 of the manual - Help?

Hi, I have been going through the tutorial (It says It takes 2 hours to complete, but I'm three days in and I'm still only halfway through it. Finding it quite challenging...) Anyway, I was getting through it (albeit slowly) until I reached "Part 4: Text Tools". I got as far as: " Try...

Scrivener software won't install

Hi,
I downloaded the free trial version of Scrivener earlier this morning but I can't get it to install.
It downloaded fully (83.4MB) but when I click on the installer nothing happens.
Any advice or suggestions?
I'm using Firefox, Windows XP on a desktop.
Thanks
