I'm not going to learn code to use Scrivener

I tell you. Looking at the user's manual and a lot of the "answers" to posts here on the forum - I happen to know what a <div> is, but there's no way I'm going to be patient if that's the language being used to tell me how to use this software. Novelists don't know code, so they certainly ...

Re: Amazon Look Inside - Okay with Windows Scrivener MOBI?

Amazon has a reader you can put on a PC. It will open .epub files. It also opens MOBI files, which should go without saying. I use that. Tidy little program.

Re: Cliche the writers curse or just ignore it?

Firstly, by "don't write a cliche", this could refer to the entire work, not a phrase within it. I highly recommend people do not write cliched material. But, it seems like the majority of movies being made today, which were correspondingly written by a writer (or two or three), are cliche...

Re: Why it is essential to work with a book editor?

Whenever anyone says something is essential for me to do, I don't do it and see if the world explodes. Sometimes it does! What's fabulous for me is I'm an editor. I can edit my own work, however, there's a big HOWEVER to this. HOWEVER (comma) I had to do something first. I had to discipline myself. ...

Re: Feedback Wanted: How do you structure your Scriv projects?

I'm not very complicated. I wish the standard - chap. 1 chap. 2 If I'm given options I can work that into design somewhat, roman numerals, just the chapter numbers with a word - one, two The folder for a chapter and the file in it for the actual text (called "scene") gets confusing if I tr...

Re: First release of Scrivener for Windows - Eight years ago today

Hi there, I've been using this thing for a little better than two years now. I'm on my third novel using it after using (honestly) every build of MS Word. I used to wistfully mourn for the return of Word 7 - where they finally got it right for writers anyway. BUT, having used Scrivener I have no int...
