Welcome to Part 2 of the tutorialÐyou can close ªPart 1º by clicking on the triangle n ext to where it says ªPart 1º in the

binder on the left. You can also hide the Inspe ctor by clicking on the blue disc icon in the toolbar again. You have now learned some of the fundamental features of Scrivener. Now it's time to move on to some of the organisational features. Firstly, notice that this doc ument is actually a folder in the binder. There is no real difference between te xt and folder documents aside from their icons, and the fact that folder documen ts always have ªdisclosure trianglesº next to them in the binder (and other outline views) regardless of whether or not they have anything inside them. Note that th e folder icon for this document (ªPart 2: Organisationº) has a little text icon in i ts corner. This means that this folder contains text - the text you are reading now. (It does not have anything to do with the fact that it also has text docume nts inside it, such as ªStep 7º and so on.) The other major difference between folde rs and text documents is the default way they get viewed when you open them. We'll come to that in Step 7. In fact, you can convert a folder document into a text document and vice versa v ery easily. Click on ªPart 2: Organisationº in the binder to make sure it is selecte d, and then go to Documents > Convert > To File in the main menu. The folder ico n changes into a text stack (the stack indicates that the text document has subd ocuments). If you go back to the Documents > Convert menu, you will see that now you have the option of converting it back to a folder - do that now. The idea b ehind this flexibility is that you can choose to have different visual indicator s for different levels of organisation, and also you don't have to plan in advance how you structure your project, because if you end up using a text document as a container for other files, you can always convert it to a folder later, and vi ce versa. To create new documents, click ªAddº in the toolbar. If you hold the add button down for half a second, a menu appears that lets you choose which kind of document y ou would like to add. You can also add documents via the Project menu, footer vi ews and contextual menus. Hitting enter in the binder, outliner or corkboard wil l also create a new document (although this behaviour can be turned off via the Preferences). Okay, move on to Step 7 when you're ready (you will need to expand ªPart 2º by clickin g on the disclosure triangle next to it). Or go get a cup of tea and a biscuit. Scrivener's editor has four modes - four different ways of viewing your work - and learning how and when to switch between them will make your Scrivener experienc e much more comfortable. The four modes are as follows: 1. SINGLE DOCUMENT MODE In this mode, the editor shows the contents of a single document, whether it's a t ext document, an image, a PDF file or whatever. The editor is in single document mode right now. 2. CORKBOARD MODE In corkboard mode, the editor shows the subdocuments of the current document as index cards on a corkboard. Let's take a look at how that works right now: a) Try clicking on the ªPart 2: Organisationº folder in the binder, and then click o n the image of the corkboard in the toolbar (the one in the middle of the group of three View/Group Mode icons) so that it is selected:

Once you've taken a look at the corkboard, return here. See how the subdocuments o

and your changes wou ld have automatically been applied to all of the individual files you altered. b) Now . You could have edited the text. except that it shows them as rows and allows you to view various columns of information. but this time instead of choosing the corkboard icon. After reading this part. because you are viewing a single document that has no subdo cuments. Wh en you do so. To do so.this is because Scrivener remembers which mode you last used to view a group. because this document is a subdocument of the ªPart 2: Organisationº folder. you simply click on the button with the icon of the stack of papers. It allows you to view or edit multiple text documents as a composite . Scrivenings mode is available when there are multiple documents available to view as one. allowing you to see the subdocume nts of the current document. you will see that the left-most ic on shows a single sheet of paper. once more click on ªPart 2: Organisationº in the binder. This mea ns that it is possible to enter Scrivenings mode.) The single text icon on the left has now changed into a stack of paper. OUTLINER MODE Outliner mode is much like the corkboard mode. You will see that the cor kboard is blank. so you know how to get back . WHAT TO REMEMBER WHEN SWITCHING VIEWS You've now switched between all the main views. click the outliner icon on the right (and remember to come back here afterwards): 4. ªSCRIVENINGSº MODE ªScriveningsº is the term for Scrivener's combined text mode. and will automatically use it for viewing groups until you change it ag ain. The main thing to remember is that . Try repeating everything you did for the c orkboard mode above. it returns to outli ner mode .including this one . So. After you've seen the blank corkboard. after you've read this bit. then return here by clicking back on ªStep 7º in the binder.but it could. cl ick on the text icon to the left of the corkboard icon in the toolbar icon to se e the text of the document again: 3.were combined into one long document. you will notice that the ªView Modeº icon in the toolbar changes.click on the corkboard icon again.f the folder you had selected appeared as index cards? If you open the inspector right now and select the ªNotesº pane. and after selecting the stack of papers icon scroll all the way down to the bottom of the editor. let's look at one that does. If you look at the ªV iew Modeº control in the toolbar at the moment.which you will have seen on the corkboard. Done that? You should have seen that the text from all the various subdocuments of the ªPart 2º folder . Try that with the ªPart 2º folder n ow. This is because this document (ªStep 7: Changing Editor Viewsº) doe sn't have any subdocuments . with dividers between them.well.as though they were one long document. while viewing this document. This indicates that the composite text mode is not available here.it becomes ªGroup Modeº: (You will notice that when you select the ªPart 2º folder again. and it is one of Scriven er's coolest features. it even gets renamed . you will see the index card associated with this document . In f act.

You click on the mode you want to view . Once you're done. Go to View > Layout > Split Horizontally.now you really do need that cup of tea. The chances are that from time to time you are going to want to split the editor so that you can view two parts of the same document. Cmd-Return will play or pause the file. so you won't see much other than a media control bar in the lower part of the top pane (actually.) All well and good. (The great thing about these tutorials is that you're always ge tting users writing in to point out your mistakes or tell you stuff about Romans . do we? We can do that in any word processor worth its salt (whatever th at means[ No need to write in: it refers to the fact that Roman soldiers used to get paid in salt. or to hide the header and footer views for the current document view.)]). ªStep 8º. I know .because you can't enter Scrivenings (composite text) mode when viewing only a single document. or using the cmd-1. sadly. corkboard and outliner mode. we'll take a look at some of these view modes in more d etail. In t his mode. alongside one another. In this case. that audio file is the beginning of the coolest phon e message I ever picked up. Note that through the Layout menu. You can control the media file using the keyboard shortcuts defined in the Vi ew > Media menu. this document is displayed in two panes.just as you did at the end of Step 6 to view the text of the ªPart 2º fo lder. there are only three view modes available . and it will be shown in th e editor that currently has the focus. corkboar d mode. Before delving further into the view modes.com. let's pause to check out another impor tant feature of Scrivener. click on the button in the right of the header view above (the square with the horizontal line through its middle): Suddenly. Now you can play the audio file in the top pane whilst typing in this bottom pan e. you can also choose a vertical split. ªThisIsBuzzAldrinº is an audio file. the header bar of the focussed editor tu rns blue.when you are viewing a single document that has no subdocuments. When this is the case. (You can a lso Opt-click on the header button to create a vertical split. When you are viewing a folder or a document that has subdocuments. You can tell which editor currently has t he focus because when there is a split. the message was not for me). Click on any document in the binder. And nat urally. we're not. an d also Scrivenings mode. cmd-2 and cmd-3 keyboard shortcuts. or outliner mode. to get rid of the split altogether. but we don't want to be limited to viewing only one document at a time. the three view mode ico ns in the toolbar are labelled ªView Modeº and the left-most icon is a single sheet of text. is visible in the bottom pane. I know. there are four modes available . Let's do that now. You can also switch between view modes using the top three items in the View men u. If you spot any mistakes or have any interesting but relevant factoids. though. Make sure that this docum ent. you can return to single document mode by deselecting all of the segme nts of the Group Mode control . after all.that is. please don't hesitate to write to contact@literatureandlatte. and probably another bi scuit too.single document mode. the three view mode icons in the toolbar are labelled ªGroup Modeº and the left-most icon is a stack of papers. You can also drag a document from the binder to the header view of the editor in which you wish to view it. Alternatively. or to toggle to a vertical split if you already have a horizontal one and vice versa. or two entirely different documents. click on the one that is selected to de select it .the single document. and then drag ªThisIsBuzzAldrinº from insi de the ªResearchº folder onto the header view of the top pane. So let's do that now. for instanceÐwithout your .

The corkboard thus al lows you to concentrate on different levels of your structure. click on the ªDraftº folder in th e binder. This is another useful feature for transcription work. in the corkboard itself. so let's look at that now. and click on ªStep 9º so that it opens here. ªPart 1º through to ªP art 5º. indicatin g that it is on.by clicking on the button with the image of four inde x cards in it in the right of the footer bar beneath the corkboard: . double-click on the folder icon in the second car d. The corkboard is one of Scrivener's most distinctive structural tools. If the inspector is open while the corkboard (or outliner) is open. you will notice tha t these five folders are the immediate subdocuments of the Draft folder . whenever you pause the media file it will automatically be rewound a couple of seconds (you can determine exa ctly how many seconds it gets rewound in the Navigation pane of the Preferences) . or blue-grey if you use the Graphite theme in your syste m Preferences). and ensure that the capsule ªGroup Modeº control in the toolbar has the co rkboard selected.

To see what I mean. If you click it. click into the top editor to give it the focus (it should still be showing the ªThisIsBuzzAldrinº media file. represented as index cards. their width and so on . Also note the but ton in the lower-right of the media control bar: That is the ªpause and rewindº button. if so.near the volume control slider for instance .that i s. You could hide the toolbar. Note how the corkboard in the top editor now shows the folders. or for referring to a video file while writing. it will turn blue. When ªpause and rewindº is turned on. Next. This will drill down to show the contents of the ªPart 2º folder represented as index cards. The snazziness of this feature should immediately be app arent: you can refer to another text. These shortcuts are very useful for trans cription work. Each card shows the title of the document and a synopsis area that can be used to remind you of the content of t he document or to note what you intend to write in the document later. you can use the split view to view any two documents in Scrivener alongside one another. BASIC USAGE The corkboard shows the immediate subdocuments of the selected document. If you look in the binder.having to click outside of this text.the number of cards that get drawn acros s. Once the top editor has the focus. Make sure this bottom pane has the focus (click in it if you are not sure) so th at its header view is blue. they are only indented one level from the Draft folder. You can change the corkboard settings . TIP: Double-clicking on the central divider will resize the two editors so that they are of equal height or width. But of course. You can e dit the synopsis or title by double-clicking into a card.

and you can select mul tiple cards by clicking and dragging the mouse to create a marquee rectangle to enclose the cards you wish to select. Feel free to play around with the cards (but don't commit the order unless you wan t to mess up the order of the tutorial!). Click on the arrows button again so that the arrows turn back to grey. When this button is on. You can drag cards around. selecting documents in the corkboard (or outliner) will open them in the other editor if there is a split. you can click on the ªCommit Orderº button in the footer bar to have Scrivener change the order of the documents in the binder to best-fit t heir arrangement on the freeform corkboard. if you don't like the corkboard background.you can show the subdocuments of several containers by ªstackingº the corkboard . the header bar of the top editor should be blue to indicate it has t he focus). You switch between freeform and regular modes using the caps ule control on the right-hand side of the corkboard's footer bar . FREEFORM MODE Scrivener's corkboard is not like a real corkboard in that it is linear and is rea lly just another way of displaying the subdocuments of a folder or container. Try clicking on the ªStep 7º card . This is really easy to do: 1. because the button has been deselected. return to regular corkboard mode by selecting the grid segment of the capsule in the corkb oard footer bar. as it means you can hide the binder and use the cor kboard or outliner to navigate if you want to. though. 2.this time nothing will happen . CORKBOARD STACKS You aren't limited to displaying the contents of only one container on the corkboa rd .) CONTROLLING THE OTHER EDITOR FROM THE CORKBOARD Note the button containing the two arrows facing in opposite directions in the c orkboard footer bar: Click on it now.(Incidentally. You can also change the way the cards look. to indicate that it is on. you can enter a freeform mode. Ho wever. Dragging the cards around in freeform mode has no effect on the order of their associated documents in the binder (unlike in regular mode).try clicking on the part of the segment with the three stacked cards now: The corkboard background will change and you will be presented with the cards ar ranged in no particular order. and then on the ªStep 9º card (which should bring you back here). . Holding down the Command key. you can change it to a colour of your choice in the Corkboard section of the Preferences. or just use the corkboard or outl iner as secondary navigation tools. Click on the ªPart 1º folder in the binder. Click into the corkboard in the top editor to make sure that it has the focus (remember. to get rid of the rounded corners and make them l ook more like real index cards. You will notice that it turns blue. See how clicking on the cards opened the documents associated with them in this editor? That's a useful trick. then try clicking on the cards in the corkboard once more . then on the ªStep 8º card. If you arrange the cards in an order you would like to be used in the binder. 3. click on ªPart 2º in the binder. and once you have finished. which allows you to move cards where you w ant and experiment.

Note how the subdocuments of each of the folders you selected are now all displayed on the corkboard. One more thing to note. then each card that has a label associated with it will now h ave a colour chip in its top-right corner. but one of the key concepts beh ind Scrivener is the linking of synopses to documents ± and the binder does not sh ow synopses (well. a glass of wine. is a good way of viewing and editing the synopses of multiple documents. and then click on the ªResearchº folder to see what his behaviour in the Preferences if you would prefer all be represented as regular index cards. with a dividing lin e between each section (and alternate sections have a darker background colour).

The binder is a very useful organisational tool.let's move on to ªStep 10º and look at the outliner in more depth. too. Now scroll down through the corkboard.

The outliner allows you to edit the titles and synopses of various documents. so be sure to check that out. Holding the Option ke y down while dragging restricts drops to between-only ± this can be useful when yo u want a little more accuracy. The outliner will now show only the subdocuments of the ªPart 2º folder. for instance.

The columns of the outliner can be sorted by clicking on the column headers. This is what Scrivenings mode does. Click into the upper pane (which should still show the corkboard) so that it rec eives the focus (its header bar will turn blue). You can click on the ªHide Synopsesº button in the outliner footer bar to get rid of the synopses and show titles only. select the ªOutlinerº segment of the ªGroup Modeº capsule in the toolbar: The upper view will now have turned into an outliner. click again to sort in d escending order. Choose which columns appear by clicking on the ª>>º button in the top-right of the o utliner title bar. The whole point of Scrivener is to mak e working on a long text easier by allowing you to break it up into smaller piec es. ªPage Break Beforeº and ªCompile As-Isº flags and reorga nise documents by dragging them around. Let's take a closer look at ªScriveningsº mode.

We can get rid of the split now. To do so. Dragging Tip: By default.

you should now be reading this document inside the QuickReference panel. holding down the Command key. This will make it so that QuickReference panels always stay open and on top of the main windo w as we open other documents. (You can change formatting across boundaries though. The Inspector displays information about the chunk of text you are currently edi ting. So that you can see where one document ends and the next begins. We'll start by opening this document in a QuickReference panel so that we can keep it open while we open some others.. you will just hear a beep. because of the wa y they interact with one another (and for space reasons). Let's try opening a couple now. Click on the ªQuickRefº icon in the toolbar. and then scroll down towards the bottom of the text that gets loaded in to this editor and look for the pink highlighting belowÐdo that now.

The main window limits you to two editors. Now click on ªAlhambraº in the Research folder of the . We already did (1) in Step 7. and scroll to the bottom of it s text. ¼ Right. 2) You can select arbitrary documents in the binder and view them as though they were a single document. ensure that the stack of papers is selected in the ªGroup Modeº control in the toolbar. Next. Back here yet? Do you see what just happened? ªScriveningsº temporarily combines the selected docum ents into a single text.. you could therefore write each scene of a chapter in isolation and then view and edit the whole chapter as though it were a single document using Scrivening s. but sometimes you may wish to have more than two documents open at the same time .There are two ways of entering Scrivenings mode: 1) You can select a folder or container in the binder that contains text subdocu ments. click on ªSTART HEREº at the top of the b inder and then. so that all three documents get selected. click on ªStep 7: Changing Editor Vi ewsº and ªStep 11: Scriveningsº. We've looked at how to split the editor so that you can view more than one documen t at the same time. so let's try viewing arbitrary documents this time. If you were writing a nov el. An important point to note about Scrivenings is that you cannot make textual edi ts across the individual document boundaries. They allow you quickly to open. Once you've finished reading this paragraph.and this is what Qu ickReference panels are for. You can select non-contiguous documents or you can choo se to view and edit the contents of a folder or group. there is a hori zontal dividing line between sections. or you might run a search on a particular character and view the results as o ne long text so that you can see how the storyline for that character pans out i n isolation.
