Use the Revision mode in Scrivener. It changes the color of your text, so you can keep track of what version of edits you're working on. Laura Bergells shows you how.
- [Narrator] One way to track changes in Scrivener…is to use Revisions Mode.…Scrivener's Revision Mode will let you track…anything you add, but it won't track anything you delete.…Scrivener uses different colors to track additions.…This can help you quickly spot…multiple text additions to your project.…Let me show you what I mean.…To turn on Revision mode, go to Format,…then hover over Revision Mode.…Let me select First.…I'm going to click OK and we're going to see a little flash…that tells us we're in Revision Mode,…and now I'm going to start typing.…
You see, everything I write now is in a red font.…Next, I'll go to Format and then do Revision Mode again.…This time, I'll select second revision and start typing.…You can see, it's blue, it means it's a second revision.…And you can go on in this manner…for up to five levels of revisions.…If I want to remove a color from a single revision,…I can select it,…go to Revision Mode,…and select Remove Revisions.…
If I want to remove only my current revision color,…I would need to select Remove Current Revision Color.…
