.scriv File Extension

Developer: Literature & Latte
File type: Scrivener Document
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .scriv. Files with the file extension .scriv can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .scriv files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .scriv file?

Files in the .scriv format are essentially text documents with a set of formatting and page layout features not found in most text editing applications. These SCRIV text documents are more specifically known as Scrivener documents since these .scriv files can be created, edited/modified and opened or viewed using the Scrivener application, a program generally classified as writing studio software. The Scrivener writing studio software was developed by Literature & Latte to provide writers with a quick and easy way to write scripts, literary pieces such as novels or other academic papers and research materials. Users can create .scriv documents using this program, which also stores in the .scriv file the text content and the outline or structural layout format they implemented into their work. The application also provides a feature for users to easily enter their creative ideas and concepts beside their work, for quicker and more convenient reference. Files in the SCRIV format are mostly useful for writing movie and TV scripts, stage or screen plays and literary novels among other papers, especially academic and research materials. Since the SCRIV format is integrated with XML-based specifications and support, a .scriv file can be stored in a compatible XML format like SCRIVX. Literature & Latte also developed Scrivener in two versions, one for the Mac platform and the other version for Microsoft Windows-based environments, providing users with wider cross compatibility support for sharing their work and collaborating with their colleagues and associates.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .scriv files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .scriv. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
