Here is the file... and I included the Wiki explanation. I made each one of the steps a folder.. in which you can introduce your chapters. This is what Lucas used for Star Wars and is a classic for many pieces out there... now to upload... let me see

I can't get this to work. My Mac sees it as a Quicktime Movie. Any thoughts on how to get this? Thanks for making it regardless.

If nadinbrzezinski opens the file then saves it to the desktop, then zips it, and reposts the zipped project - not the template, then you can open the project and save it as a template yourself.

I did this for Inkygirl at ... 7&start=15

with the comic project from antony.

I suspect the problem might be an anomaly in leopard. 10.5.2 may fix it.

I'm another who can't get the file to open because it thinks it's a movie file.

What should I do?

No idea, may be a problem with Leopard

And I am still fairly new to the Mac.. don't think I can send it to the WIN machine and reupload

I would suggest:
1) verify the spelling of the extension
2) drag it on top of the icon for Scrivener to launch it, or
3) Right click (option-click for those with only one button) and select "Open With...Scrivener" from the pull-down menu.

Those are general Mac tips, not anything I have tried with this particular malfunction.

Scrivener won't open .scrtpl files in that way. They need to be saved into the ~/Library/Application Support/ProjectTemplates folder and then selected when you go through New Project in Scrivener.
