SCRIVENER ESSENTIALS: A Quick Start Visual Guide For Windows Users

Leaps and bounds better than Take Control of Scrivener 2. Not that there was anything really wrong with that book. It was just that it was geared to Scrivener for MAC version 2. The assumption was that unless specifically stated otherwise the text you were reading applied to both Mac and Windows versions. The problem was that you would sit there and read long passages about a feature and how to use it only to be told at the end the feature did not appear in the Windows version of the program. That was really irritating.

This one, however, is geared specifically toward Windows users (the author also has a book by the same title but for Mac users). It is presented in clear, concise text with plenty of screen shots and pictures to illustrate what Karen Prince is talking about. Of course, since the version I read is a Kindle book it is searchable to make it easier to find the answer you are looking for. The book is not exhaustive as it does not go into every bell and whistle found in the program (that’s what the user’s manual is for),but it does go over the features that you are most likely to want to use when starting out with the program.

I think I paid $3.99 plus tax for it on Amazon, and it is worth so much more.
