Solid Review

This guide is a simple ways to follow guide. It clears up some of the mystery concerning Schivner. For years, I wondered about learning another software package. I am glad I took the time to investigate things.

Learn Scrivener quickly with easy to read..instructions

This was quick read with the instructions that were in an easy to read format. I will be keeping my copy close to my computer for a easy look-up when needed.

Easy, but, comprehensive introduction to Scrivener. Especially helpful as guide to its purpose and uses.

I rated it highly because of its clarity and utility. Very well presented, visually. Will turn to it often while using the features in Scrivener.

Great guide

Thank you for supplying this. As a writer I have this Scrivener program for windows.
Very anxious when they make Scrivener 3 available. I own many “dummy books” on Scrivener but this has given me a better outlook on this.

This is just a starter book. Doesnt tell a lot but worth the price. One two three four five six

Recommends it for: Barbara Akers
For a guide to a software package that went over the main features, the work flows, and high view about how to use this product, this worked well.

There were some problems with the kindle format that raise issues about the writer's QA process (the usual annoyances of referring to numbers that were off the screen when referring to steps, etc...)

It was inexpensive and definitely felt like a good quickie guide for someone new to the product.

This was very helpful to understand the basics of how Scrivener is organized as well as some of the unique and useful features. I still need help with basics like how to set the font for an entire document but I'm glad I read this and would recommend it. Plus it was fun to read!

Helpful, useful and brief. Gives just enough amount information for a good and easy start with Scrivener. There are also some creative ideas how to use Scriveners. I could feel that the author both enjoyed working with Scrivener and also writing this guide.

Ok overview but not great. Scrivener has a lot of features and there are better guides out there.
Aug 08, 2014 marked it as writing-craft
Its a free ebook, so there's that. I found it to be very helpful, but ended up skimming over quite a bit, which I had figured out for myself.

I'm a combination of half-made identities but my technology manuals are pretty right on. I recently published a tell-all about word processor Scrivener and am currently working on one about Goodreads.

When I'm not geeking out I'm falling in psychedelic wormholes of my own creation.
