Course Overview

About this Course:

Literature & Latte created Scrivener's Compose Mode as a "Distraction Free" writing area, but the default setup is not very inspiring. Scrivener 3's default is all dark background with pale white type for the purpose of reducing eye strain, but all it does is make it very unappealing, especially for creative types.

Happily, ALL versions of Scrivener [Scrivener 2 & 3 for Mac and Scrivener for Windows] have options to change the screen background, the editor page background and the fonts to just about anything you want.

In this course, I'll show you the various ways to set up your writing environment which works the best for you. You can use colors, textures and any other image in any combination. Be sure to download the appropriate cheat sheet for your version to see where to go to change the Appearance preferences. All of the videos are created with Scrivener 3 for Mac.

Basic knowledge:

  • Some experience or knowledge of the basics of Scrivener (any version) will be helpful.
  • You will need to have Scrivener (any version) installed on your computer. (Can be the 30-day Trial version)
