Who here uses Scrivener and how do you feel it is helping you or hindering?
I use it and though there is a long learning path to use it fully still ahead I do like how it helps with the work flow. Work flow, what a word to use when writing. But the whole idea of cutting up a huge project, like writing a story, into smaller bits makes it much easier to manage.
Not to mention that I find the in build compile function pretty darn useful, even able to format out an epub or mobi for my ebook reader. So that I have a personal copy always with me.
My tips, F11, once you open a new file, and get to writing press F11. This opens a semi full screen page and you can just write without caring about anything else, all the functionality is pushed to the back and is out of reach. All you do is write. And another press on F11 or ESC and you are back in management mode.
Another tip. Tagging, keywords, either by giving colors, using the icons you can tag your sub files. And of course keywords. For instance characters, create a tag for a character then in every scene they are part of just open the keywords screen and drag them into the little Info Pane at the side [the blue I]
So how many here use Scrivener?
