Should you share your Scrivener work-in-progress file with others? Laura Bergells doesn't recommend it—and explains why. If you're going to ignore her advice and do it anyway, she shares one must-know tip.
- [Instructor] What if you have an editor or co-author…who works in Scrivener, and they want to see your work…in Scrivener so they can make their own edits?…Unfortunately, Scrivener only lets you keep…one instance of a project open at a time.…So, let me give you two workarounds to that situation.…The first is to agree to work in shifts…with your co-authors.…For example, one of you might work from 8:00 until noon.…The other from noon to 4:00.…If you try to open the file for your shift…and get a warning message, stop and contact your co-author.…
You can't open the file until they've closed it.…The second workaround is to share your work…by compiling and printing, or exporting…to other common formats like Word or PDF files.…That's my favorite method of sharing work…with an editor or co-author.…Experiment with a few different ideas…and develop a sharing process that works for you.…
