Linguistic Focus

Scrivener has some new writing tools, the first of which lets you focus your attention on specific parts of speech. It’s called Linguistic Focus. Currently, it's set up to help you view dialog separately from the narrative. I'd expert more options in future updates.

To use it, click in the text you’d like to analyze, and go to Edit>Writing Tools>Linguistic Focus. Then choose Direct Speech. NOTE: Direct speech means dialogue (or any text in single or double quotes).

Use the Fade bar to decide how visible the remaining text is.

To turn it off, select None.
