Please don't mess with the manual, it's invaluable.

Anybody looking for a quickie intro (to Scrivener :D ) hasn't looked very hard at the manual at all, or noticed the YouTube video section in the new project template page. An application as complex as this does require the user to invest a little time learning the basics!

I still do that. I learn most things that way. How I've learnt most of Scrivener... resorting to fluttering my eyelashes* when I get stuck.

*fluttering eyelashes is optional

Thought you were supposed to just bash it with a hammer until it works?

That is step three for those with eyes capable of fluttering their lashes. For certain individuals (many seem to be fond of melting metal) you are providing step 1.
