After downloading kindlegen and following the dialog to point Scrivener to its location, I click "compile" and the same prompt pops up to download kindlegen. I'm at a total impasse on that one.

silverquill wrote:Okay, I get it about PDF documents. It's just one of those misleading things that gets put into the hype about Scrivener. "Imports PDF!" Well, sort of. Sure, it shows up in the research folder, but all one can do is look at it. Nothing has changed. It is just the same as having it in another folder, except that it is more convenient and linked to a specific project now.
No more switching between multiple applications to refer to research files: keep all of your background material—images, PDF files, movies, web pages, sound files—right inside Scrivener. And unlike other programs that only let you view one document at a time, in Scrivener you can split the editor to view research in one pane while composing your text right alongside it in another. Transcribe an interview or conversation, make notes on an image or article, or just refer back to another chapter, all without leaving the document you’re working on.
