Free Scrivener Tutorial: How To Use Binder Colors in Scrivener to Track Your Progress

Free Scrivener Tutorial: How To Use Binder Colors in Scrivener to Track Your Progress
Free Scrivener Tutorial: How To Use Binder Colors in Scrivener to Track Your Progress Today I'm going to show you how to use a combination of custom Labels and Binder Colors to show you how you can track how much progress you've made on completing your novel. This is very useful as it will give you a quick visual representation of your progress so that you know exactly how much work you've been doing, and how much work you still have to go! First we'll need to open our Meta Data Settings by hitting Command+Option+Comma. Click on the Labels panel and then setup your custom labels. Feel free to use the same Labels I use (Outlined, First Draft, Revised Draft, Proofread, Final Draft, Has Issues, and To Be Removed), or come up with label names to better suit your own process. Once you've arranged your custom labels, go ahead and assign each of them their own, unique, color by double clicking the color icon to the left of each of them. You'll soon see why these colors are important--and don't worry, you'll be able to go back and change them whenever you want! Now that we have the custom labels and colors created, there's only one more step we need to take. Click on View, scroll down to Use Label Color In... And then click "Binder". You can also click "Index Cards" to make the coloring appear when you're looking at the cork board view of your novel. That's it! Now when you set the label for each of your documents, the appropriate color will appear in the Binder to the left. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for watching our free Author Strong Tutorials!

Bach, Toccata and Fugue in D minor, organ

Bach, Toccata and Fugue in D minor, organ
Bach's most famous organ piece, with a bar-graph score. FAQ Q: I appreciate the work you're doing; how can I support it? A: Thank you! The easiest way to support my work is by contributing via Patreon: http://ift.tt/1RnV92D If you'd like to help in more specific way, consider this: http://ift.tt/1XRUgXz Q: Where can I get free sheet music for this piece? A: Sheet music for this can be found here: http://ift.tt/1Jf0Ehl Q: Who wrote Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor? Q: Isn't that like asking who's buried in Grant's Tomb? A: Heh-heh. A theory has recently (1981) been put forth that J. S. Bach did not write this piece. A brief summary of the supporting evidence for this theory can be read here: http://ift.tt/1U27VLD Q: Where can I get the mp3 of this? A: You can download it here: http://ift.tt/1Jf0Exz Q: What does the piece look like as a whole? A: There are versions you can print out here http://ift.tt/1U27VLE The 'scroll' version is for cutting out and taping together to form a long strip. Q: Where can I get the MIDI file that this was made from? A: I'm not sure it's exactly the same, but the closest I could find was this: http://ift.tt/1Jf0CpB Q: How did you make this video? A: You can read about it here: http://ift.tt/1pUaAby Q: What is the BWV number for this? A: BWV 565 Q: Where does the toccata end and the fugue begin? A: The fugue starts at 2:51 and the toccata returns at 7:12, but between these two points, parts which are strictly fugal alternate with episodes that are more toccata-like, so it's not 100% clear-cut (like in some other toccata/fugue pairs he wrote). Q: What do the colors mean? A: Each "stop" on the organ was played on a separate MIDI channel, and each MIDI channel was assigned a color. Q: What is a fugue? A: Here is a good introduction: http://ift.tt/1uZoo34 Q: Can I get a DVD with this video (or others like it)? A: Yes: http://ift.tt/1U27T6x Q: Could you please do a video of _________? A: See: http://ift.tt/1489XvU Q: Where can I read more about this piece? A: Here are a couple of places: http://ift.tt/1U27VLG http://ift.tt/1U27T6z Q: Why does this piece of music remind me of horror movies? A: Because it was used in the 1962 version of The Phantom of the Opera. Before that, it did not have that connotation. When Walt Disney and Leopold Stokowski used it in the 1940 film Fantasia, they considered it to be a purely abstract piece --- "absolute music" --- which brought to mind expressionistic forms and lines.
