How To Use Revision Colours In Scrivener
Scrivener Revision Colors
Let’s say you sent your script or your novel to a producer or publisher and they like it (hurraaaay!). But he also gives you some notes of things they would like you to change.
So, you want to keep track of the changes you made in your draft for this particular producer or publisher.
There’s a tool for that in Scrivener, called “Revision Mode”.
What it does is, it colours everything you change in your script in the colour of your choice.
Here’s how it works.
With your project opened, go to Format – Revision Mode – First Revision.
When you’re in revision mode, EVERYTHING you type in ANY EDITOR will be coloured, not just in the document you’re working on right now.
So, e.g., if you have your script and a notes document open in your editor side by side, and you also make changes in your notes document, these notes will be coloured with your current revision colour as well.
Remove Revision Colours
If you want to remove your revision colours and go back to black, just go to Format – Revision Mode – Remove All Revisions.
Choose Revision Colours
You can choose your revision colours in the preferences:
Go to Scrivener – Preferences and then click on the “Appearance” tab.
