I have never been able to make Scrivener work for me. I stand corrected. I finally figured out how to get it out of my way and make it do what I wanted.
1. Import docs and work from there
2. Right click to split at selection. (Hint: left click to make sure you've selected what you want first.)
3. Double-click to edit color. If I'd found this sooner, I would have liked Scrivener better.
4. Use Label Color In... This was the kicker. I can make this work. I can finally make this work. Whoohoo.
