Customize the Scrivener Editor 2 – Adjusting Fonts in the Editor

In last week’s article, I explained how you can tweak the Editor to make it more comfortable to use. I discussed zooming to change the display, setting the Editor width, and adjusting margins, along with some other elements that you can change in Scrivener’s options.

This week, I want to discuss how you can work with fonts in the Editor: how to change the font, size, alignment, and more. Most writers want to set fonts once and for all, and never change them, and I’ll show you how to set the defaults for new projects.

Customize the Scrivener Editor 1 – Setting Up the Editor

The Editor is the section in the Scrivener window where you do your writing. While the Binder and Inspector are important, because the former helps you structure your projects, and the latter lets you store additional information about your texts, the Editor is where you probably spend the most time when working with Scrivener.

It’s important to be able to make the Editor fit your style of working, to help you forget its presence so you can just focus on the words you write. You do this by adjusting how the Editor and your text display.

In this article, I discuss adjusting the Editor view in general, and in future articles I’ll look at font settings, how to use styles, how to set up tabs and margins, and more.
