Scrivener simply did not work well with Word


To be fair, what program does work well with Word, if you please?


OneNote, and Excel work great.

Well. . . I think it is more of a survival mechanism.

Re: Scrivener V3 for Windows release date

Personally, I"m perfectly happy with the current version of Scrivener for Windows, so it's no big deal if it's released today, tomorrow, or whenever. That said, it would be nice to have the latest version 3 for Windows once it does come out, in case there's anything useful there that will help...

Re: Name generator

What kind of names are you looking for in a generator? Those look reasonably good to me, and not the sort of "Jane Doe, Bob Smith" names that would drive me to use the name generator in the first place. I have to agree! A quick gander at any big city phone book will yield far sillier name...

Re: Some thoughts on using Android as a writing platform

Android is currently a dog's breakfast when it comes to professional creation apps so suspect you'll be stretched to find a solution to equal Scrivener on that platform just yet. L&L have indicated an intent to develop an Android version of Scrivener, though you may be waiting some time. Meanwh...

Some thoughts on using Android as a writing platform

I recently spent more money than I intended on replacing my elderly and much loved Lenovo A7600F 10 inch Android tablet, and the matching (literally) Bluetooth keyboard, both of which showed signs of a seriously deteriorating battery After a couple of false starts and RMA requests, I have settled on...

Well then, never mind! That means it's perfectly OK to worry about v20.

Re: How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

Curio looks interesting, but it's only for the Mac. Too bad, I'm a PC guy.

Re: How To Get An Outline in Scrivener into Scapple - And Back.

I don't think it CAN be done! I'm glad Scapple only cost $15 because I'm having trouble finding a place for it in my workflow. The free (open source) version of xMind and the Open Source product FreePlane are much more useful to me. The problem with Scapple is that it is neither fish nor fowl. It ap...

Re: Thanks for the update regarding release!

I'm comfortable with this response. But it DOES sound as if future Windows versions will be a bit easier to create since much of the Windows "heavy lifting" will have already been done. Of course, Microsoft, being Microsoft, will no doubt require other newer, more challenging heavy lifting...

Re: Affinity Publisher! It’s alive! ALIVE!

Some user advise. If they release an optional, extra cost "workbook", buy it. I have the one for Affinity Photo, and it is an excellent tutorial that can really help acquaint you with all the tools it offers.

Re: Recommendation to a Free Novel Writing Software: Manuskript

Manuskript is working slow for me. Is there any other better option. I think, in the end, most people come back to Scrivener. I came to writing through photography, where any app that costs less than $100 (US) is considered a bargain. I bought Scrivener with that mindset. And considering its positi...

Re: Scrivener 3 Windows Release

To be fair, I don’t think DaveK’s question of when has been answered, nor will it be in the beta forum. That’s not something we do. Some companies make public deadlines and then publish no matter what state the software is in. Others make soft deadlines and then miss them (because you always will) ...
