Hi All,

I was so grateful to have Scrivener while working on my dissertation. To save myself formatting headaches, I did my final edits as a Latex document. I'm now ready to start the slow process of editing the dissertation into a book. What would be the most efficient and accurate way to turn the Latex document back into a Scrivener project? There aren't any pictures, but I have extensive footnotes that were converted to Latex from Markdown and biblatex.

Thanks for any advice and help!

Pandoc can convert from LaTeX back to markdown which can then be imported into Scrivener, it should handle footnotes without issue and it will convert LaTeX citations into pandoc citations

… you can also easily use Pandoc from Scrivener to go back to multiple outputs, and citations can be used in any output like EPubs / HTML to generate full bibliographies (thus more flexible than using other output workflows)...
