I'm loving Scrivener so far, but I was very disappointed the Windows version did not have the different options for highlighting words such as adverbs like the Mac version does. Will you be implementing this for the Windows version? It would be a massive help to have such a tool!

That facility is, if memory serves, provided by MacOS, not by Scrivener. That is, it's not a feature that L&L wrote, it's one that Apple provides as part of the baseline operating system. For that matter, neither is the spellcheck system, but in that case, there are multiple reliable general-use libraries available that provide spellcheck capabilities that the Windows version of Scrivener is able to make use of. If something like the Linguistic Focus becomes available, then perhaps L&L can work it in.
