File Size: 78.4 MB
Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers that allows you to concentrate on composing and structuring long and difficult documents. While it gives you complete control of the formatting, its focus is on helping you get to the end of that awkward first draft.
Your complete writing studio
Writing a novel, research paper, script or any long-form text involves more than hammering away at the keys until you're done. Collecting research, ordering fragmented ideas, shuffling index cards in search of that elusive structure-most writing software is fired up only after much of the hard work is over. Enter Scrivener: a word processor and project management tool that stays with you from that first, unformed idea all the way through to the final draft. Outline and structure your ideas, take notes, view research alongside your writing and compose the constituent pieces of your text in isolation or in context. Scrivener won't tell you how to write-it just makes all the tools you have scattered around your desk available in one application.
Write, structure, revise
Scrivener puts everything you need for structuring, writing and editing long documents at your fingertips. On the left of the window, the "binder" allows you to navigate between the different parts of your manuscript, your notes, and research materials, with ease. Break your text into pieces as small or large as you want-so you can forget wrestling with one long document. Restructuring your draft is as simple as drag and drop. Select a single document to edit a section of your manuscript in isolation, or use "Scrivenings" mode to work on multiple sections as though they were one: Scrivener makes it easy to switch between focussing on the details and stepping back to get a wider view of your composition.
With access to a powerful underlying text engine, you can add tables, bullet points, images and mark up your text with comments and footnotes. Format as you go using the format bar at the top of the page, or use any font you want for the writing and let Scrivener reformat your manuscript after you're done-allowing you to concentrate on the words rather than their presentation.
Create order from chaos
Most word processors approach composing a long-form text the same as typing a letter or flyer-they expect you to start on page one and keep typing until you reach the end. Scrivener lets you work in any order you want and gives you tools for planning and restructuring your writing. In Scrivener, you can enter a synopsis for each document on a virtual index card and then stack and shuffle the cards in the corkboard until you find the most effective sequence. Plan out your work in Scrivener's outliner and use the synopses you create as prompts while you write.
Or just get everything down into a first draft and break it apart later for rearrangement on the outliner or corkboard. Create collections of documents to read and edit related text without affecting its place in the overall draft; label and track connected documents or mark what still needs to be done. Whether you like to plan everything in advance, write first and structure later-or do a bit of both-Scrivener supports the way you work.
Your research-always within reach
No more switching between multiple applications to refer to research files: keep all of your background material-images, PDF files, movies, web pages, sound files-right inside Scrivener. And unlike other programs that only let you view one document at a time, in Scrivener you can split the editor to view research in one pane while composing your text right alongside it in another. Transcribe an interview or conversation, make notes on an image or article, or just refer back to another chapter, all without leaving the document you're working on.
Getting it out there
Scrivener provides all the tools you need to prepare your manuscript for submission or self-publishing. Once you're ready to go, control everything from how footnotes, headers and footers appear to fine-tuning the formatting of each level of your draft-or keep it simple by choosing from one of Scrivener's convenient presets. Print a novel using standard manuscript formatting. Export your finished document to a wide variety of file formats, including Microsoft Word, RTF, PDF and HTML-making it easy to share your work with others. Or self-publish by exporting to ePub or Kindle* formats to share your work via iBooks or Amazon, or for reading on any e-reader.

Refinements and Changes:
• Improved the font parser to ignore faulty values within font fields, which previously could prevent Scrivener from opening while fonts with incorrect values were installed. (Any fonts removed in order to run Scrivener 1.9.6 can be reinstalled.)
• Added support for Microsoft Office 2016 in the import and export converter options.
• When selecting formatting levels in the Compile "Formatting" pane, affected documents are now highlighted in the binder.
• Improved conflict resolution when syncing mobile changes to reduce unnecessary conflicted copies being created when a document is edited only on iOS.
• Scrivener now detects and prompts to sync mobile changes even when a project is the active (frontmost) window. Be sure Dropbox has completed downloading before choosing to sync.
• When syncing from mobile devices, black text colour (used on iOS for "no colour") is converted to a true "no colour" on Windows, allowing the text to display in the default text colour for the editor (set in Tools > Options > Appearance).
• Added a prompt message to simplify showing changed documents after syncing from iOS.
• The selection highlight in the binder has been extended to the full binder width, making it easier to distinguish from label colours and compile format highlighting.
• "Split with Selection as Title" and "Set Selected Text as Title" now convert carriage returns and line breaks within the selection to spaces in the title.
• Selecting "Open File Location" from the references context menu now selects the item within the containing folder in the file browser.
• Added a more informative message when choosing File > Sync > with Mobile Devices. when there are no changes in the project.
• Updated the collection tab appearance and added a right-click option to the colour icon to show the collection colour context menu.
• Improved the internal handling of document icons in the binder.
• Updated the version of 7-zip included in the Doc2Any conversion tools Scrivener uses.
• Fixed a bug whereby external plain-text files did not import correctly using the Sync with External Folder option with extensions other than .txt.
• Fixed a bug whereby advanced compile replacements using the tag did not work.
• Fixed a bug whereby compile replacements did not affect titles in the auto-generated table of contents for ebooks or in the page title of webpage formats.
• Fixed a bug whereby pasting rich-text into the Project Replace "replace" field pasted the RTF syntax.
• Fixed a bug whereby conflicted copies of documents following a mobile sync displayed initially with a blank document icon and a 0 word and character count in the editor footer.
• Fixed a bug whereby the text selection and cursor position were not always saved if no other changes were made in a document.
• Fixed a bug whereby some unicode characters might be duplicated when pasting or importing 2-byte character text into Scrivener from Microsoft Word.
• Removed code attempting to clean up styles from HTML on the clipboard when pasting into Scrivener, as doing so could lose parts of the original text.
• Fixed a bug whereby it was possible to use "Move to Selection" on an inspector comment or footnote when only carriage returns were selected, causing the note to disappear. The New Comment/Footnote commands are now also disabled when only carriage returns are selected (comments would not previously be created, but the commands appeared available).
• Fixed a typo in the Spanish translation files.
• Restored missing error when attempting to save one project into another project's .scriv folder.
