Importing and creating chapters--need advice


I’ve just imported a rough draft of a novel from a .docx file. In the doc file I separated the chapters with a page break. However, I want to create new documents in the binder of Scrivener for each chapter. Is there an easy way to do this? Without creating a new document, then copying and pasting each chapter into the newly created document (in the binder) and renaming it (chapter 1, Chapter 2, etc.)

Thanks for the help.

Put the cursor on the page break then use Documents > Split >Split at Selection (Cmd-K). That will give you separate documents for each of your “chapters”.

I’d go further though and create a folder in the Binder for each of those chapters and drag the appropriate newly split document into it.

You can then further split each chapter into documents as needed.
