Online training in Scrivener 3 is available for free At the Hope Cove Writers' Workshop Weekend (last weekend), I gave a quick demonstration of how Scrivener works. A few days ago, I heard via Facebook that the husband of one of the delegates - he's also a writer - has now bought the software. Excellent news! She emailed me almost immediately he'd installed Scrivener on his computer. Where and how does he start...

The Cottage Hotel, Hope Cove I've just returned from a weekend at the Cottage Hotel, Hope Cove. As you can see, the view across the beach and out to sea is spectacular. And the cream tea on the balcony gives a hint about the style of catering on offer at this wonderful hotel.

I've already taken a look at the differences in the Inspector pane, between Scrivener 2 and Scrivener 3, in this post....

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...

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...
