The other problem KB faces is the bugaboo of backwards compatibility with earlier versions of iOS. As of now, iOS Scrivener is compatible back to iOS 9.

I have probably added more stuff to Scrivener based on suggestions from you than from any other user, certainly in the screenwriting department
The problem is that you want me to do something that I have no plans of doing - of building a text engine primarily aimed at screenwriters. , but the trouble is that you want something entirely different from what Scrivener is, it seems.

KB, as a lapsed +3+ I would like to chime in with a completely off topic comment. commence fanboydom....
I, as a nerd who can't get out of the corporate world, am still thrilled by your success as the author of scrivener. It is a novel that influences the writings of other authors. While you haven't written your work of fiction, and you may never actually finish this work of non-fiction, your steadfast dedication to the plot and consistent output is something at which many on this forum marvel. All whilst raising a family.
Huzzah! to you. My the future continue to shine bright for you and yours.

I think you have misunderstood my argument.
I have been told by L&L repeatedly that Scrivener's screenplay formatting problems are due to limitations in the Apple text system, and therefore cannot be fixed. Your (and your team's) words, not mine.

Then we tried it. I was a little disappointing.

You also made it clear that it wasn't going to get any better. Your heart wasn't in it.

I want Scrivener to fulfill its promise, and live up to its own level of excellence.

This is an important point. In my informal observations, Scrivener users are much more concerned than most with maintaining backward compatibility, often a long way back.

That's so true. I think it was 7.5MB when it was released or something. And one of the most powerful writing apps on iOS.
