What is a .SCRTYPES File?

A .SCRTYPES file is a specialized file used by Scrivener, a powerful writing software designed for authors, researchers, and content creators. This file format stores the formatting and layout settings for a Scrivener project. These settings encompass various aspects of a project's appearance, such as font styles, paragraph spacing, indents, and more. By saving these settings in a .SCRTYPES file, users can maintain a consistent look and feel throughout their writing projects.

How to Open a .SCRTYPES File

To open a .SCRTYPES file:

  • Click on the "Load" button and select the .SCRTYPES file from your computer.
  • Once loaded, the formatting and layout settings from the .SCRTYPES file will be applied to the project.

How to Edit a .SCRTYPES File

Editing a .SCRTYPES file directly might not be recommended, as it contains complex formatting and layout settings. Instead, modify the settings within Scrivener using the "Manage Formatting" dialog, and then save the settings as a new .SCRTYPES file.
