How do you use the Inspector panel in Scrivener? Laura Bergells takes you on a tour of the Inspector panel, so you can get a glimpse of its power and functionality.
- [Instructor] The Inspector is a powerful area.…It lets you review, manage, and even adjust many key areas…of your work.…Instead of doing a deep dive…into each of its functional areas,…I'm going to give you a broad overview.…You'll become more deeply involved with the Inspector…as you work on your project, but for right now,…let's catch a glimpse of its possibilities.…To the upper right, you'll see a lowercase i…in a blue circle.…This is the Inspector icon.…Clicking on it will open and close the Inspector panel.…
The panel appears to the far right of the screen.…At the top of your Inspector panel, you'll see five icons.…Each of these icons reveals key details about your document.…Let's take a peek at each.…The first icon shows the synopsis in index-card form.…If you want to edit it, you can do it…right within the Inspector…and it will automatically update in the corkboard.…Below the synopsis area,…you can see any notes you jotted down for this document.…
For web pages, I tend to write meta descriptions here.…For videos, I might jot down production notes.…
