‘Interesting’ Software Follow-Up: Scrivener, Google’s Orphans – James Fallows – The Atlantic January 14, 2014Posted by sandyclaus in Academic Technology.
1) Scrivener Guide. Over the years, and most recently here, I have extolled the virtues of Scrivener as a major step forward in computerized writing tools. I\’m grateful to my friend MG in the United Arab Emirates who has alerted me to a detailed, useful, very well-illustrated online guide to advanced fluency with Scrivener that is available free here.
The guide is by Nicole Dionisio, it\’s part of the MakeUseOf series, you can download it as a 14MB PDF file, or you can read it on line. In whatever incarnation, it\’s highly interesting and valuable. Here\’s how it shows one of Scrivener\’s advanced features — setting word-count goals for different chapters or sections of a writing project.
