Examining the Scrivener Screen

Toolbar: The buttons on this bar are shortcuts for popular menu commands.
Binder button: Click this button to view the Binder.
Inspector button: Click this button to view the Inspector.
Binder: Displays a hierarchical list of all the files in your project.
Format bar: Contains shortcut buttons for common text and paragraph formatting commands.
Header bar: Displays the title of the active document and provides shortcuts to several document commands.
Inspector: Displays extra data about the active document.
Editor: Where you view, write, and edit the active document.
Footer bar: Provides additional information about the selected document, as well as shortcuts to several menu commands.
