How do you set correction preferences in Scrivener? Laura Bergells demonstrates the differences between the various correction preferences within the Scrivener settings.
- [Instructor] Okay, confession time.…Generally, I don't like using autocorrect,…but when it comes to repeatedly writing long…or hard to spell words, I might want to dive into…Scrivener's correction preferences to make some adjustments.…I'll start by clicking on Scrivener…and then selecting Preferences.…Under Corrections, I'll review my options.…If I know I'm going to be writing…many long or hard to spell words throughout a project,…I'll check all my choices under Auto-Correction,…especially correct spelling errors as you type.…
The others, Fix capitalization of sentences,…Capitalize I, Superscript ordinances.…Well, personally, I do find these kind of handy…so I might want to leave them checked on.…And further, you can see I have other options…to chose under the headings of Punctuation,…Data-Detection and Auto-Completion.…Which options do I think you should choose?…Well, that depends on both your project…and your preferred way of working.…Some of the choices that drive me bonkers,…will be the ones that you love the most and vice versa.…
