Hi there.
Scrivener looks great - I've been trying it out before buying but have hit a snag that I can't find an answer to. When I import Word documents where changes have been tracked, the changes appear in the Editor mixed into the main body of the text. There doesn't seem to be a way to import the 'final draft' version of the document. The only way I can see to do that is to copy and paste a final draft version of the document within Word and then import that into Scrivener. But since I want to import an entire novel manuscript, that would represent a huge amount of work. Has anyone else come across this problem?

:D I've just found the answer to my own question! So in case anyone else has the same problem -
Under the Review tab in Word, click the down arrow under Accept and click on Accept all Changes in Document. Then Save your doc. and it will then import to Scrivener in final draft form without any messy changes coming along for the ride. In all the years I've been using Word I'd never done that before :oops: Oh well, live and learn!
