How to put together short ebook?

I have a short manuscript and am trying to paste it into Scrivener nonfiction template, but this is driving me nuts! It doesn’t have to BE this complicated.

Can anyone help? I tried to follow Scrivener directions. I am trying to paste each chapter’s text into a new “file.” But even that has become complicated. Too many items in the interface, too many “options.”

Basically, there’s the title page, preface or foreword, about 6 or 7 chapters, and a short list of “Sources.” Later, we might add a real index.

Maybe I need to start again, from scratch. grrrr

Can anyone assist? Thank you in advance.
