I’m just beginning with Scrivener, and am working through the tutorial (the whole thing! Not the “quick start” mode!)
In Step 3, I come to the info below, which turns out to be incomplete:
The footer view will change depending on what you are viewing inside the document. For instance, if you are typing a script (such as a movie screenplay), the footer view will give you information on the various script elements. Try selecting Format > Scriptwriting > Script Mode - Screenplay from the main menu now. You will see another pop-up menu appear on the right saying “General Text” (this just means that the currently selected text isn’t recognised as a part of a screenplay). Click into the text on the line below:
CLICK INTO THIS TEXT.
However, when I select Format > Scriptwriting > Script Mode - Screenplay
no new popup menu appears on the right. After several minutes, I finally figured out that the new popup menu appears at the right OF THE FOOTER, not to the right of the Format > Scriptwriting… menu.
Mayhaps the tutorial-author thought it would be IMPLIED that the new popup would be in the footer, but because I’m a longtime Windows user, I thought it meant that the new popup would show up at the right of the Format menu. So I didn’t look in the footer – until I couldn’t find the alleged popup where I thought it would be.
