No, the name doesn’t imply that at all. The name implies that it is for revising scripts. It’s a standard in script writing and made for exactly that

You can check it out for yourself. Pick any standard script writing tool - Final Draft, Highland 2, etc. The quote below is from the Celtx Help Center:

"Revision mode is a tool you use once your script is in production (or darn close).

Your edits will appear in industry-standard colour on the screen."

Quoting some Celtx software does not excuse the poor quality of Scrivener - simple as that! I have laid out my points clearly, you are unable to accept the issue as valid. Scrivener is quite badly made program with a myriad of issues.

There’s a simple solution. Don’t use it.

I will refrain from posting further and will search for a suitable alternative to Scrivener. Unacceptable quality.


Yes, please.

Kindly f-off.

There is no alternative to Scrivener, sadly they are all abandoned or even worse (which is an achievement in its own right) than Scrivener so I am stuck with this poorly made piece of rubbish.

I feel a distinct lack of politeness in this thread. Please mind the one forum rule of being polite.
