Make it your own! The user interface - whether you are using Scrivener 2 or Scrivener 3 - is also the writer's workspace. It's where you write your manuscript. The default interface is fine - it works - but Literature & Latte recognise that no two writers will want to work in the same way. So, there are choices you can make. You can see what you want to see. You, the writer, can choose your  writer's...

Meet the Inspector While the Editing pane can show your Scrivenings, your Corkboard or your Outliner view, there is also an option to view the Inspector. The Scrivener workspace The basic workspace can be separated into three panes: The Binder on the left The Editing pane in the centre The Inspector on the right In Scrivener 2, with the Inspector 'open', it looks like this. In Scrivener 3, there's a new look to the Inspector pane. What's changed? The...

It's all about the Outliner! The Editing pane can show your Scrivenings, your Corkboard or your Outliner view. In a previous post, I looked at the bottom line of the Scrivenings; in last week's post, I focused on the Corkboard view. Today, it’s all about the Outliner view. The Outliner bottom line: comparing Scrivener 3 with Scrivener 2 In Scrivener 2, the Outline bottom line looks like this. In Scrivener 3, it's the same functionality on the left...

It's all about the Corkboard! The Editing pane can show your Scrivenings, your corkboard or your outline view. In the previous post, I looked at the bottom line of the Scrivenings; next time, I'll focus on the Outline view. Today, it's all about the corkboard. The corkboard bottom line: comparing Scrivener 3 with Scrivener 2 In Scrivener 2, the corkboard bottom line looks like this. On the left, there are five icons/displays - and, on the right, there are...

User interface? At the top of Literature & Latte's list of improvements for Scrivener 3 is the revised user interface. What's the user interface? When you open up Scrivener, whichever version you are using - or any other application, for that matter - you are presented with a window and that's your user interface. The interface is crammed full of features: icons you can click, menus that drop down, options all over the place. It's like...

Managing change is a skill. For those of us who had reached the comfortable stage with Scrivener 2, to be confronted with Scrivener 3 is more than a challenge! Literature & Latte released the upgrade in the middle of November when many writers were busy with NaNoWriMo and I for one have only just about found time to have a serious look at it. The user interface - and knowing where everything is...

Linguistic focus is a new feature in Scrivener 3. November - and NaNoWriMo - is well and truly over, and we now have Scrivener 3, so you might be tempted to start editing your NaNo novel - that's if you've finished writing it! Personally, I'd recommend you put it aside for at least two or three months. But I know some of you are itching to start. To date, I've used ProWritingAid and/or Autocrit...

There is life after NaNo - exploring Scrivener 3! Each November, for thirty days, my focus is on writing that new novel. This year, it was Lucinda's Legacy - a tale triggered by a comment I overheard back in May: It's all about the money. Oh no, it's not. Oh yes, it is! And then the story grew and grew and grew ...
