Snowflake method template for Scrivener 2.x

Posted by filed under Technology

As promised, even if I’m late as hell with it. For those of you who were looking for the Snowflake scriv template, here it is. Same method applies to make a template; open the .scriv file, choose Save as Template… from the File menu and it should be available to use as a new template for your projects.

Do remember to customize your fonts and such before you save as template, cause those’ll follow and much simplify the creation of new projects.

EDITED April 2017

Hey guys. Apparently the newest versions of Scriv handle templates differently. So I’ve updated the file. Again.

See the below screenshot for a quick example of how to import it. The template, once imported, will be listed under your “Fiction” tab, when you create a new document.

    Hi, when I try to open a template it comes up with an error. I was wondering what I should do? I have the latest version of Scrivener.

      Hi Rachael!

      See the edited post and try again. I don’t know why it keeps corrupting. Probably the Scriv template setup workflow keeps changing ever so slightly every few versions. I just tested this new one; re-exported as template, re-imported, opened it. It seems to work now! :)

      Let me know if it works for you.
