There are literally hundreds if not thousands of cool little things you can do with Scrivener to save you some time. Here is a quick 10 to get you started.
Move the cursor to the bottom of the screen in full screen to show the control panel, or the top of the screen for menus.
Set up a blank project with your preferred keywords, labels etc & use “Save As Template” to use it as a base for new projects.
A curled corner to a document icon indicates that it has a snapshot associated with it.
You can convert web pages and PDF files to text files using Documents > Convert.
Ctrl-clicking on a multiple selection of documents allows you to assign a label or status to all of them at once.
Hovering the mouse over an item in the binder will bring up its synopsis in a tooltip.
You can drag items from the binder int the editor header bar as another way of opening them.
You can use the zoom pop-up in the footer bar to increase text size instead of making the font bigger.
Resize images in text by double-clicking on them to bring up the scale panel.
Window > zoom to fit screen (ctrl – cmd-= ) stretches the window to fit the screen.
