How do you navigate Scrivener? At first glance, you might think the Binder is the only way to get around. Laura Bergells shows you other useful techniques—as well as how to reorient yourself if you get totally lost.
- [Instructor] My favorite way of navigating Scrivener…is to use the binder.…I can click around on documents in any order.…Skip around.…Don't have to be in order.…Every time I click on one,…a new document opens up in the editor.…I want you to notice two things that happen…when I navigate this way.…One, whatever I select in the binder highlights in blue.…And two, whenever I select a document in the binder…while I'm in editor mode,…the text for that document shows up to the right.…
If I decide I want to work on this particular document…I can click in it and simply start writing or editing.…And when I did that, look at the binder again.…The binder highlight isn't blue anymore, it's dark gray.…This means I'm not actively navigating…using my binder.…Think of that dark gray highlight as a visual cue.…It shows you where you are in the project as you work,…but the binder isn't the only way to navigate.…Let's explore two other ways.…Take a look at the header area of this document.…
