What I Don't Like
That’s not to say that I like everything about Scrivener. The software comes with a built-in tutorial, but I was unable to get it to work. It also comes with a user manual, which is installed when you finish said tutorial. I ended up searching online for a Scrivener Guide, but mostly I just learned how to use the software by playing with it.
Some things can trip you up if you are not careful, as well. For example, I was annoyed at first because while there is a Save option in the File menu, there is no Save button on the toolbar. As it turns out, this is because Scrivener AutoSaves frequently. This is a great thing if you are paranoid or live in an area with sudden power outages (although in that case you should have your computer plugged into an uninterruptible power supply anyway). It does mean, though, that if you make a change you later regret, you cannot back out just by quitting without saving.
Fortunately, you are not limited to using the Undo button. There is an option to take a snapshot of your document, saving a copy in its current state. If you later decide you would rather not save your changes, hitting a button will bring back the older version. Two nice things about this: it prompts you to take a snapshot of what you have before rolling it back, in case you change your mind again, and the snapshot works on a section of the project rather than the entire project, so you can roll back one section and leave alone everything else you’ve done since then.
