My guess is they got hung up with the tools or their documentation but Scrivener is a complex ground breaking product - which is why we keep coming back here to see where things are. Remember the worst platform for software development is Windows ...

Re: Scrivener should become subscription

Hi Devin, W7CCE in Gilbert here. I have the same contesting software. The difference is that you can go a long time - years - with the same software if you don't need the extra features, and as you know a bunch of competitors pop up at every delay.

Re: What are the best tools for annotating and then extracting notes from PDFs for academic writing

Re: Compile to PDF Doesn't Include Cover Image

To date almost no one does anything useful with pdf files because its a print issue not an editing issue and everyone from Microsoft down can't figure that out.
