Text box

Hi. I am trying to insert a text box into my script (I’m writing an academic book) but can’t find a way to do it. Is it possible? Many thanks, Rebecca


Simple answer, No. Scrivener is not a page layout program and text boxes and callouts are a matter of page layout.

As a solution, I would recommend creating a paragraph preset with “Preserve formatting” set, which will distinguish the text box text clearly from the body text, say giving it a particular colour, which will be preserved on compile, so that when you have compiled your draft, you can open it in your word processor, locate all those paragraphs and place them in text boxes at that time.
