About this Course

Scrivener 3 for Mac came out in November of 2017 and Scrivener 3 for Windows is in Beta and should be coming out in the near future. These videos apply to both the Scrivener 3 Mac and Windows versions unless otherwise indicated. Most of the videos were recorded in Scrivener 3 for Mac, but most everything is in the same place and the same icons are used in both. Occasionally, because of Mac and PC platform differences, a task has to be done slightly different in each, in that case both the Mac and PC version will be recorded separately. NOTE: The Windows-specific videos will be added once Scrivener 3 for Windows is released.                                              

GET A HEAD START ON SCRIVENER 3 FOR WINDOWS: If you have Scrivener for Windows, you may want to download the Scrivener 3 for Windows Beta version. It still has a few things missing and certain things aren't working exactly the way they will be, but most everything you are learning in this course is available in the Beta version. The link to the download will be included in the Bonus Section at the end of the class.                                             

This course has short tutorials on how to do a particular task listed in alphabetical order, so that you can find what you need quickly. The short videos showing the steps to do a particular task have no narration, but short written instructions when needed. Each task is repeated 2 to 3 times, so you can see it more than once if you need to without having to manually start it over again.
