A colleague of mine, who is also working in the lab and writes papers for publications in journals like Journal of Neuroscience, recommended Scrivener as a replacement for Microsoft Word. Having read lots of laudatory comments about the program here, I decided to take the plunge. I now have Scrivener on my Mac.

A question: what’s the best way to learn the ins and outs and intricacies of this program? I note that there are several books up on Amazon, any of them worthwhile? How about forums? I also assume that I can just start using it like any other word processor, but that seems to kind of miss the point. If I am just using it as a replacement for Word, without exploring some of the interesting and novel aspects of the program, then it seems like I am missing things that might be important.

So, what’s the best way for a newbie to get started?
