Re: Word count to cursor with multiple documents selected?

FWIW - as a relatively new novel writer (pending...) and a relatively new user of Scrivener, I think this should be a much simpler process - there is a lot of flexibility in the program, so I'm surprise that a running word count based on content type isn't always available as an in-window or pop-out...

Re: Word count to cursor with multiple documents selected?

The fact that this has gone unanswered since October 20th is a bit concerning.

How do I change the Corkboard appearance?

I see lots of examples of non-default corkboards,

However, I can't figure out how to change the appearance - for example, to the "actual" corkboard look-and-feel...

Any help appreciated!

Methods to track/change "time periods" ?

Hi, I'm very new to Scrivener, and am wondering if there's a way to tag or otherwise identify a "time period" - in my case, high school grades - that allows us to change it later. For example, if part of the story takes place in 8th grade, and later, I decide to make it 9th grade... Or, it...

Re: Stuck with "pieces"

Hmmm... interesting. Thanks for the recommendation - I actually just got the audio book (free) because of our Amazon subscription; I was about to get the Kindle version, too, so I could read at night as well, and bookmark it. I do like the physicality of books, though. Dang... decisions... :) If I m...

Stuck with "pieces"

Hi everyone, After another half-year of procrastination, I'm sharpening my pencil again. So... I have a general concept, but what I have to date, rather than a bunch of writing, are a bunch of notes - about scenes, people, etc... I have two main puzzles: 1) Whether I should continue "filling in...

Can we work in Manuscript / Paperback "mode" ?

Hi all,

New user here... really enjoying Scrivener so far (which hasn't been too far yet) but I'd really like to be able to write in what's presented in the Novel Format template as Standard Manuscript or Paperback Novel styles.

Is that possible?

thanks,
Andrew
