The user interface of Atomic Scribbler has been set up in a particular way. Chapters, scenes and notes are stored on the left, the main tabbed word processor sits in the middle, and notes open to the right. This basic structure will be maintained as we add new features to the software over the coming year.
While you cannot swap these sections around, there are a number of customisations you can make to the UI. For example, from the Actions & Tools toolbar, you can choose to switch off the left or right sections, thereby freeing up more space for the word processor. This is especially useful if you work on a lap top with a small screen.
On the Word Processor toolbar, there are options to Zoom in or out, enlarging the word processor or making it smaller. There is also an ability to widen the Document Tree and the Notes section by dragging the separator to the left or right. These are project wide settings. Changes to any of these settings will be maintained when you close and re-open a project. You should spend a little time configuring your look and feel, and be confident that Atomic Scribbler will adopt these changes every time it opens that project.
At the top right of the Atomic Scribbler window, next to the minimise button, there is a fourth button that opens a drop down menu. The options available in this drop down are:
Auto-hide Ribbon, Show Tabs and Show Tabs and Commands.
Selecting from these options along with closing the right and left sections gives a close approximation of full screen writing. This is an area we will probably add to in the future.
