Creating an outline

Scrivener’s versatility came through for me again recently when I had to create an outline to give to an editor – not for something I was writing, but for a work which my organization has commissioned. I could have turned to OmniOutliner, but instead I used Scrivener and was very pleased with the results. I built the outline in outline mode, adding descriptions for each section in the synopsis pane. I then compiled the outline using the preset “Synopsis with Titles” format. The resulting PDF was just what I needed to provide direction to the editor and the whole process took me less than an hour. Remarkable!

For some reason, I never thought to do it this way. I usually just use the Binder in Document view, but this method would actually work better in certain situations. Thank you for posting it.
