That is to say, as long as I follow proper workflows it’s a great program, but when I deviate I find myself in software hell.


Isn’t that how all software works? :) I mean, Scrivener is quite a bit more flexible than most programs—especially these days, where you get ten features if you’re lucky and nothing else outside of that works at all, but no matter how deep the program, if you use it in a fashion it isn’t designed to be used, you’re bound to run into friction.

Hi Gerard,

Your lack of specificity makes this post a fairly useless thing, in that nothing is gained by it: L&L can't improve their product, other posters can't assist you with possible solutions/workarounds to your challenges, and you remain in software hell. :evil:

But if you ever want to actually improve your situation, then you should create a post detailing your challenge and upload a screenshot to show us what you're seeing. Odds are very high you'll receive some helpful responses. :)

Best,
Jim
