The Binder

The Binder is this panel on the far left of the Scrivener window. It’s essentially how you navigate your manuscript!


You can change the way your Binder looks by changing the icons for the folders and text documents!

Change Icon Menu

To change icons, right click on whichever folder or document you want to change. Down toward the bottom of the menu will be the option to change icons. For this one, I'm going to change my title icon to a blue notebook!

Icon From Text

You can create an icon that is text!
