Several details show that they actually had a close look at Scrivener. There is more than a close resemblance (project and document notes, color preferences, project-wide search, document info pane...). I guess they had their reward back for what Scrivener took from the original Ulysses.

There's only one thing in Ulysses that I miss in Scrivener: The document/notes browser windows in the lower left corner. It allows you to read notes attached to document that isn't currently highlighted. When you're a heavy user of document notes like I am, this is very useful.

Ulysses 2 seems to be a great release, and I'm sure it will find many fans.

Don't you achieve virtually the same thing assigning a Heading1 style to a heading as you do marking it with a percentage sign?

doesn't each paragraph need a semantic style attached to it at the beginning, or is there a default style that is applied if no other style is indicated?
I guess what I'm taking from your comments is that the advantage of using text markup comes when you are ready to output your writing, but not in the composition.

The final stage of importing into Word and tearing your hair out for days over styles is completely eliminated, as is the fact that the Scrivener project is now "dead". Ideally, production stays in the source project, it doesn't "travel" from each iteration of the proof to the next.
