Update! - Scrivener Picture Book Template for the PC


In my last blog post I shared with you my Scrivener Picture Book Template and I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had over 200 downloads!  I had some great feedback from the kidlit community, especially the Mac users among them.  It seems the file doesn't always open in a PC for Windows users.

So I've had a look at it and created a new version for Windows that looks closer to how it looks on a Mac.  I've also incorporated a comment from bungld to change the name of the manuscript folder from "Picture Book Template" to "Picture Book Manuscript" in keeping with Scrivener nomenclature.

I also suspect people may have trouble opening a zip file, if so here is a useful video to help you through the process.  Speaking of videos, I am currently working on my own tutorial video on how to use this template which I hope to post soon.  Here are the links to the Windows templates:

  4. Thank you for the template. I'm getting ready to start a new picture book. It's the first one I've written using Scrivener... and the first time I've used Scrivener.
