Re: Scrivener and the Legal Profession

Thanks, Keith, for your reply. I expect that curating templates would be quite a bit of work, even if one didn’t have to worry about copyright issues, so I understand that you must prioritize other things. But it would be a shame if copyright issues are the primary obstacle. My understanding is that...

Scrivener and the Legal Profession

I’ve been providing technical support to a lawyer who is using Scrivener. I thought I might reflect on this here. Legal writing benefits from the same tools that help creative writers. Legal writers must get from an assemblage of partly formed arguments and pieces of research to a flexible final pro...

In pseudocode, I'm trying to get TAB <underline> <$aon> TAB my_title <\underline> So the first tab is no...
