Okay, so I downloaded the trial version of Scrivener, and I have to agree that it is an amazingly versatile program. It lets you work between multiple windows and display notes and rearrange files and add tags to sections of text.
It lets you customize the colors and fonts of every single bit of information on the screen. It will automatically compile many documents into one or subdivide one document into many. It lets you add images or media files.
However, for all its versatility, if there is any way to apply automatic formatting to an entire document to indent the first line of every paragraph, I haven’t found it, and it won’t import or export to Open Office files, and so I can’t use it for my existing document.
It seems to be much like a fireworks display–very pretty, but essentially useless.
Pity, I had heard such good things about it.
