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!

The user interface - and knowing where everything is...

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 ...

The release of Scrivener 3 has been a long time coming! Earlier today Scrivener changed its logo. And at last, we have - or almost have! - the option to download Scrivener 3. The cost is not huge and the new features promised - according to their recent blog post - will warm the hearts of many Scrivener fans. To find out more, book a Simply Scrivener Special. Meanwhile .. I have some time to enjoy exploring these...

Images can bring a page to life. In the previous post, I gave an overview of how you might use images in a Scrivener project. Here, I'm focusing on images in a text document. Images in a text document You have two options when pulling in an image to a text document. You can place the image itself, in which case the image is treated like a character of text. The image file size...

An image can paint a thousand words, so they say.
