I came to Scrivener through Pages. I tried all of the similar programs out there but selected Scrivener for the wrong reason! As it turns out, it was a fortuitous choice, but I wonder if I am wasting the power of the app?
I have severe current projects as examples:
- A weekly column for the newspaper. I’ve been using a single Scrivener file for the entire time which is kinda handy in a cut and paste sort of way.
- A major reference work on plants for the south has a single S. file.
What does this mean? It means that many of the most powerful features of Scrivener aren’t used, especially for the column.
I know there’s no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, because the team set it up that way, but I cannot help but feel I could be getting more out of the app. So, I thought that positing here might generate a conversation÷
