Now I just export the docus to Words and do all the revision, everything in Scrivener, and export a new version. I doubt I will fork out for this upgrade.
I've used Pages 08 to exchange drafts (originating in Scrivener, of course) with 3 different Word-using editors in recent weeks, and none of them had any problems seeing comments or tracking changes. It was an utterly transparent process. I much prefer Pages to Word, but if you don't want to pay for it, you can also use NeoOffice as a bridge between Scrivener, and change tracking and comments will show up in Word and vice versa. at least that was my experience. Anything to avoid using Word....
It would be great if we didn't need that intermediate step but that would entail making SCrivener more of a word processor than it already is, and that's not Keith's vision for it.
These were all journalistic articles, but I'll be using footnotes or endnotes later this year and will report how that goes.
