Character question

Clicking on Characters on the left side I see a corkboard. I add a character and it creates an index card. I fill out the body of the card with character details. Repeat for 4 more characters. I then click on one of the char names under the character list in the left pane. I then see a character worksheet. But if I click on the first char in the list I just get a blank screen. Why is that?



Bear in mind that when you fill in an index card you’re filling in a synopsis for the document in the Binder, not the text of the document itself. The synopsis appears at the top of the Inspector, on the right-hand side of the screen. (To understand this, and many of Scrivener’s other features, it’s worth spending an hour or so going through the Tutorial, under the Help menu.)
