In trying to set up Scrivener to accommodate my less than optimal vision, I wanted to set the editor window font to Consoles 14 pt bold, and then to satisfy most if not many publishing sources, compile or print in Courier New 12 pt.
Can I do this, first of all? Secondly, if I get everything set up, can I then save those settings and import them any time I want to replicate them for another project?
It seems that especially the bold is a bit temperamental to set as a default. Is this true or am I not doing it correctly?
First, know that you can change the zoom level for the editing window. I use 175%.
Second, yes, the font and format that you use for editing can be completely different from the compile font and format. Choose File/Compile and check out the Formatting panel. It takes some getting used to.

The Interactive Tutorial is short, and for me, it was really helpful.
The most important idea behind Scrivener, that was really hard for me when I started with it, was that Scrivener is NOT a text editor like Word.
Formatting, page layout and all the rest is done when you compile. What you have in the Editor of Scrivener is a bare text which allows you to rearrange it any way you like even after you finished writing it.
What was also hard for me, was to recognize that I can have really small pieces of text and focus work on them - like a paragraph small. For me, this is the true power of Scrivener: small pieces of text that I can view in whatever order I want in the scrivenings mode.

Can someone please tell me how to find page layout. The tutorial video says click on view, then page layout is supposed to show up in the dropdown menu. When I click on view, there's no "page layout" in my dropdown menu.
