Scrivener : Beauty


I can’t help but gush when I write about Scrivener. I mean, it’s such a gosh darn sexy program! It has the brains of a processor designed for writers, and the beauty to dress it up how you like. I feel comfortable writing with this program.


The above screen shot allows you to see my preferred color scheme and font choices. I love red. My office is a cave of red.


And that’s just how I like it. So, how do I change the look of Scrivener? Easy peasy lemon squeezy!


First, you’re going to go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS. That’s going to open you’r options box on the GENERAL tab. Click on the APPEARANCE tab. From there you get to have all sorts of fun deciding what you want to change. For instance, if you want to change the color of the binder, click BINDER, then right under where it says BINDER BACKGROUND, click the color swatch. It will bring up your color selector.


Pick your color, add it to custom colors for quicker coloring later, and click OK. After that you can click APPLY to see how it looks on your Scrivener, or click OK if you are done selecting colors and are ready to get to work.

You can also change up the fonts if your feeling particularly frisky. It follows the same basic guidelines, so I wont insult your intelligence by going into detail about it.

So there you have it! How to change up the look of Scrivener. I hope you enjoy!

Ta!

  1. Thanks for the tip! I still haven't done that much with Scrivener - I've been using the free trial to manage some index cards for my 'How to Revise your novel' course, since I hate having to write on real index cards. I already really like it though.

    I don't like hard-to-read captchas nearly as much though. :(
