Trying to import a word doc into Scrivener

Hey there! Brand new to Scrivener and wanting to import my current project on Word into Scrivener, but when I click on the Import function under File, all options are grayed out and inactive. Help!

Have you created a new project? You have to first create a project and select somewhere for Scrivener to save it (eg. User/Documents/NewScrivProject.scriv) and what template you want (likely just the “empty” default, unless you have others installed that you know you want to use). Scrivener will then open up the new, empty project and you can import your existing document.

Also, if you haven’t already, I highly recommend going through the Tutorial project that comes with Scrivener; it will give you a huge boost for using the program and doesn’t take too long to work through.

Thank you so much! I’ll give that a try and yes, I need to read the Tutorial…
