We all, I hope, know that you can edit a scene in full screen in Scrivener. Perfect way to focus on nothing but the words. Usually, though, you will just hit full screen inside a single scene — and naturally see nothing but that when you’re writing. What if you want to write a new scene but have access to another one while you write, for continuity say or simple inspiration?
Easy. Select multiple scenes in the binder using the Command/Ctrl key like this.
When you hit full screen you will now see both scenes, with a line between the two like this.
In this case I’ve picked consecutive scenes, which is what I’d normally do when writing in a linear fashion. But they don’t have to be consecutive. You can command click anything in the binder, hit full screen and you’ll see it. So if the reference scene is way back in the text you can read that against your new one too.
