Re: Scrivener 3.0 and ProWritingAid

I have been using Scrivener for yonks. That's a long time. I have tried requesting the type of checking found in the Hemingway editor and ProWritingAid to the Scriveners but alas no joy. I recently road tested ProWriting Aid to find it can read the same database as Scrivener. So you can write deligh...

Re: Export with annotations?

Permit me to think out loud. I am not co authoring though I like the concept. I export from Scrivener but I tend to manually add headers and footers to the exported MSWord doco. But if your co author also uses Scrivener, perhaps you can simply share a Scrivener file ... warts and all. Good luck.

Re: Prose Editing

When all is said and done, I take it Scrivener will not incorporate the option to seek out the various (not just passive voice) items I listed.
Oh well. :roll:

Prose Editing

One of the best ways to improve writing is by eliminating words that are too complicated or repetitive. In the heat of the moment, we all tend to use words and phrases which need improvement. That is what editing is for. The Hemingway editor does this but I don't want to switch between Scrivener and...

Corkboard colours

Hi, I use Scrivener for Windows and Linux Version: 1.9.7.0 - 06 Oct 2016 I noticed in a FB posting that you can have a different colour for the top of a corkboard TEXT than the main body. I am unable to locate the option to allow this. I can see that I can switch between using a PIN or a CORNER MARK...

Re: More Meta Data options like LABELS and STATUS and tick all that applies

Thank you Brooker,

Sounds like Keywords are the way forward ... for now.
Any product roadmap, you can share, for the features I enquired about?
As for the future, it won't be long in coming.

Cheers,

Re: Management Reporting

Thank you AmberV. I can work with this. It took a little time to follow your breadcrumbs and flick through the manual to make the extract work, but the basic extract now works. If I need more help I shall post separate questions. One small observation. I find the notion of a HOW TO section in a prod...
