Scrivener Tutorial #3: Writing and Backups

I’m continuing on with Part 3 of my Scrivener Tutorial series on YouTube. This time I’m focusing on:

  • How to use the Editor
  • Setting wordcount goals for a document
  • Hiding the wordcount tracker
  • Working in full-screen mode
  • Managing snapshots

I originally started this series as a way to help authors get more comfortable with this admittedly complex software. I used to be in the same boat years ago, daunted by the amount of features. Once you get over the hurdle of learning it however it’s very helpful and I wanted to share that.

Now that I have made several of these videos, I realize just how many of these features I use on a regular basis. Not just once in a while either, I mean with every single manuscript I pull out at least one of these features each time. I know I still have many features to hit in this series, but I hope this helps someone down the road!
