Use the Scrivener presets to compile your project as a PDF document. Laura Bergells shows you how to compile your work as a manuscript: one in Times font and one in Courier font.
- [Instructor] Let's compile this project as a PDF.…We'll use Scrivener's preset compilation options.…I'm going to hit Compile in the Scrivener tool bar.…Here's my Compile Dialog box.…I'm going to select PDF from the Compile For drop down.…Next in the Formats panel,…I'm going to select Manuscript in Times.…I'm going to go to the right panel.…Here I can see all the sections…and documents I'm choosing to compile.…
If I don't want some sections or documents…to show up in my PDF,…I can click them on or click them off.…And here's a tip,…if you want to make sure everything is selected,…you can click on any of the choices…while holding down your Alt key.…This toggles everything on and off, like so.…Let me select everything,…then deselect my Room Tone and Blank.…Next I'll hit Compile.…I get to choose what to name my file,…and where to save it.…
I'm also going to choose to open it in Preview,…then I'll hit Export.…Here's my entire project in a PDF document.…Instead of Calibri my working font,…it's compiled in Times font.…I'm going to click out of this and return…
