Re: What did I hit? Red and green in my binder.

Thank you for the response. That did fix the colors. But I'm unable to type into that chapter / folder. The last line is chopped in half. Bottom of the screen is now truncated and I can't type anymore. It all happened at one time. I pasted something in, the colors showed up and I can't type on that ...

What did I hit? Red and green in my binder.

Hi,
I don't know what I did. I pasted something into a folder and now I have the red and green as shown. How do I turn it off?
Thank you.

Re: Live Instruction?

I tried with the corkboard for a while, but something about being able to scan big pages and scribble on them fast is making things move way better. The outline is coming alive on my wall, while the Corkboard was harder to navigate. The view of twenty-five big pages and the interface of a pencil jus...

Re: Live Instruction?

I figured out my method of outlining. I just taped a bunch blank paper on the wall. Then once I'm happy with that structure, I'll put it into Scrivener. I supposed everyone has their own method. First book. Had no idea how to approach it. Starting in Scrivener is not for me. Thanks for all the repli...

Re: scrivener course recomendation

Thanks Mark. Yes, in a few days I did learn that. I'm just going to start. Not worth hunting around for something I don't know even exists.

Re: scrivener course recomendation

Hi Krastev,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I tried those. It's one of the sources that mislead me for days on the non-existent "draft" folder. I'm hoping to find some guidance on effective outlining tools and strategies. Course, video, phone call, anything short and sweet.

Thanks,

Mickey

Re: Live Instruction?

Hi Lunk, Not so helpful. It's one of the sources that mislead me on "draft" for days. I did look at this early on. Information overload with little "how-to" gleaned. I want to know how to effectively outline. Maybe I'm doing it, maybe I'm not. The directions say that people have ...

Re: Live Instruction?

Thanks Lunk.

I'll give it a try. I'm trying to figure out the best way to outline before I get too far into it. I imported an outline and chapters from Word. Now I wonder if I've gotten too far ahead of myself. Thanks for the tip. Was taking a break on tutorials for the day.

Hi Everyone, I'm new to Scrivener and am struggling with the manual and online tutorials. I find that critical steps are often skipped. For example, some tutorials kept saying to click "draft." I could not find draft for days. Finally, I found a video in which someone explained that you ha...
