For this article, I assume you already have Scrivener installed. If not, go grab it here and follow the instructions to install it. You’ll need the Windows version for this tutorial.

Side Note: It if you don’t want to commit yet, don’t worry, Scrivener offers a trial version that gives you thirty days to experiment and see if it is for you.

Side Note 2: If you experience any problems during that process, let me know in the comments, and I’ll try to help. I’ll write a full post about the installation process, somewhere in the future.

OK, enough with the side notes. 🙂

When I write, my process includes Aeon Timeline as a tool for creating the outlines of my stories. AT works seemingly with Scrivener, but until now I couldn’t figure out how to synchronize the General Meta-Data > Status field in Scrivener (shown on the right,) and the same field from inside the Aeon Timeline project.

Recently, I found a solution, with a little help from a friend.

To fix the issue do the following:

1. Double-click the message to open it for editing in a separate window.
2. On the message ribbon, click Actions -> Edit Message
3. Write in the message body

Eat me!
