Is it possible to start a project in Corkboard or do I have to create documents first?
If you tap on the the Draft entry after creating a new project, that should do the trick. Be aware that creating cards on the corkboard is creating new documents, though. The corkboard is merely another way of looking at them, as opposed to the list view in the sidebar.
Aah - so simple! Many thanks for that. - Yes I do want the cards to be documents but I am a dab hand at overcomplicating things. This, I hope, will rein me in!
And, by the way, I absolutely love Scrivener for iOS.
