A Welcome Addition


I’ve been getting some flack from readers because I don’t post tutorials for those who use Scrivener for Microsoft Windows. So you know 100% of my work is Mac-based. Part of the problem was I didn’t have a dedicated PC where I could load the software. The short time I was using my husband’s desktop PC, where I had downloaded the software, was met with so much fear his system would explode that I finally decided to buy a Windows laptop.

I don’t have an optimal mission control center that is solely dedicated to easy access to both computers so there’s a lot of back and forth, especially now that my study has been taken over by the panicky luddite. Now I work in a corner of the living room with both laptops unless Mr. Luddite is napping on the sofa, and if that’s the case, I’m displaced to working in the bedroom.

What in the world does this have to do with Scrivener for Windows tutorials? I now have a set routine of sorts between these two laptops, so I thought it was time to post Scrivener for Windows tutorials. For organizational purposes, I’ll have a Table of Contents page with links to the posts that will specify either Mac or Windows, so you don’t need to spend a lot of time searching for them.

Will they be any different from the Mac posts? The only difference will be the functions and the illustrations. Otherwise, you’ll get the same detailed, but chatty explanation accompanied by images.

See how nice I am? All I ask from you is no more grumbling. I’m trying my best.


Thank you for working to accommodate us Windows people! I very much appreciate it


I have been studying for over a years now and use windows. I have found how to access tools on windows the most difficult. Otherwise not too many. Joe runs both together which is nice but still need info from you and a couple others!  Hope the weekend is going well for all of you! Rick =)
