Use Scrivener to take snapshots of your work. This helps you with revision control. You can take snapshots of your work and even rollback to previous versions. Laura Bergells shows you how.
- [Instructor] The snapshot function in Scrivener helps you…manage revisions and drafts of your work.…Let's say I finished writing a first draft…of this goodbye video for the course.…My next step is to export it and send it to my publisher.…Let's say she gets back to me to let know…she wants something completely different from what I wrote.…Before I rewrite, I'll take a snapshot of my first draft.…I can do that by going to Documents,…and then selecting Snapshots, and Take Snapshot.…
Before I do this, please note that you can take…common keyboard shortcuts like command + 5…or shift + command + 5.…I do this all the time because I take frequent snapshots.…For this example, I am going to take a snapshot…by clicking Take Snapshot.…To see the snapshot, make sure your Inspector panel is open,…and we do that by clicking the eye,…and that you've selected the camera icon.…This represents snapshots.…
You can see the date and time of the snapshot…that I just took.…I can also choose to name it by clicking in here,…and I'll do that.…
