Site Licensing

We’re always trying to make it easier for institutions, along with individuals, to adopt Scrivener into their writing workflow. To this end, making it more readily available to larger organisations, we wrote a blog post back in November 2012 that covers the process of obtaining Scrivener licensing for universities and businesses http://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/?p=329. It details the steps […]

How Do You Use Scrivener

We’re running a quick survey to find out how our customers are using Scrivener. This information will help us plan and prioritise new features, and to work out how to reach potential new users of Scrivener in the future. It should only take a few seconds to fill in, and we’ll be very grateful to […]

Yosemite Updates

Yosemite is nearly upon us – the rumour is that Apple will release OS X 10.10 today, announcing it at their iPad event. Yosemite is a major upgrade to OS X, introducing a number of significant UI changes. (Sadly, it is not without its share of bugs at this stage.) Accordingly, we have just released […]

Collaborative Novel Prep for the NaNoWriMo Rebel

We’ve just entered autumn here in the northern hemisphere. To celebrate the changing seasons, the fiery landscape, the woodsmoke scenting the crisp air, I thought I would make this month’s post a simple (yet subtly complex and insightful) haiku. Then I remembered I can’t write poetry worth fairy gold. Also, my autumn kicked off with […]

An Update on the iOS Version of Scrivener

Given the number of tweets and messages we get enquiring after the progress of our iOS version (thank you everyone for your enthusiasm!), I wanted to give everyone a quick update, since there have been some important developments recently. As many of you know, development started on Scrivener for iPad and iPhone early in 2012, […]

Scrivener Licensing for Universities & Businesses

Some time ago, I wrote a blog post about ‘Becoming a Sales Affiliate for Scrivener’ http://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/?p=98. This detailed how you could go about becoming a member of a virtual sales force for Scrivener, earning a 20% commission in the process. This method of getting a little something back as you spread news of Scrivener still […]

The Mac Monochrome Trend – A Plea For Keeping Things Colourful

On Twitter today, someone posted some mock-up screenshots of their ideas for improving Scrivener’s interface: http://dribbble.com/joostvanderree/projects/42516-Scrivener-UI-concept (In his own words: “Based on the Scrivener. It’s an app with great functionality for storytellers. UI could be improved in my opinion. This is my approach.”) Everyone has their own opinion about this or that UI, because visual […]

iBooks Author and Scrivener for Mac

Just a few quick notes on iBooks Author, as understandably we’re already receiving questions about the best way of going from Scrivener to Apple’s new e-book publishing tool. To answer the most obvious question first, I’m afraid it won’t be possible to provide a direct export to iBooks Author, as the .iba format is proprietary […]

Scrivener for iPad and iPhone in Development

We’ve been dropping hints for a while, but can finally make an official announcement: Scrivener for iOS is now in development. I’ve said all along that I wouldn’t develop an iOS version myself, any more than I would have tried to code the Windows version myself – with such a small team, I think it’s […]

Scrivener 2.0.5 Now Available on the Mac App Store

Scrivener is now live on the Mac App Store! A big thank you to those who have been wanting to buy Scrivener from the App Store and who have waited eagerly to do so – we really appreciate it. And kudos to whoever the reviewer at Apple was, too, as he or she gave us […]
