Thanks Steve, this is very helpful! The export feature you mention for Scrivener would certainly give it an advantage.

Just a quick update on how I see my workflow coming together, and a few questions:

Reference management/Annotation of PDFs
For now I will settle for Zotero but I am looking for reference manager that can sync with a shared folder such as dropbox. I believe Sente does this but I’ve been unable to find a way to export/sync my reference/PDFs from Zotero. Any advice here is helpful.

Data Management
Here I have settled on DevonThink, although Tinderbox is a strong contender.

Note-taking/Outlining/Writing
Rather than using Circus Ponies Notebook, I am going to stick with Scrivener and a mind-mapping program. For notes I think I will try Notational Velocity or just create them inside DT.
