Hello all! As promised, here is the first part of my Scrivener Manual for Windows. It gives a basic intro into Scrivener (the Windows Version). In Part 1 you will find a section describing (in detail) how to create a Scrivener project. Also, I included a section detailing several of the basic Scrivener functions that I found useful in my own writing journey. To download the manual (it’s in PDF format and it’s free!), simply click on the link below.
This manual is not a comprehensive Scrivener manual. I only included the things that I found difficult to do and/or for which I could not find instructions. There are more comprehensive manuals available for purchase on Scrivener’s website which would be recommended for further information. I am not a Scrivener expert in any way, but I wanted to add to the growing body of knowledge available for Scrivener users in hopes that I could save someone from the frustrations I had at first.
If there are features of Scrivener on which you would like more information (that are not included in this manual/you can’t find online), please don’t hesitate to let me know. I will do my best to provide you with as much information as possible.
You can contact me using the form on the Contact page, or you can comment on this post and I will get back to you as quickly as possible. I also have included a poll at the bottom of this post for feedback on the manual’s usefulness. If my Scrivener manual was helpful to you, please take a second and let me know.
*I do not own or have any affiliation with Scrivener (the software and the company). I am a user of the product only. If you have questions about the software and its affiliates, please contact the company directly. This manual is for information purposes only.
**Part 2 of the manual will delve into the “Compile” feature of Scrivener and will give instructions on how to compile into three (3) different file formats: eBook, Portable Document Format (PDF), and Microsoft Word.
Until next time…
