Scrivener for Windows is offering a negligible discount—-4 bucks——until 11/7/2011 when they are rolling out Ver. 1.0. I have already purchased a license for Writing outliner add-in for MS Word, and I would like comments on your experiences, if any, with these two programs.

Btw: I still do not believe that either program is useful for academic or legal writing since neither has a facility for storing, retrieving and inserting citations.

There is a way to use EndNote references with Scrivener, here is how:

Hi, I also was considering Writing Outliner for Word (as well as Scrivener), but as an academic found the same limitations. We simply need Mendeley or Zotero integration, at least those in the biological sciences.

I started using UltraRecall in a similar was to Writing Outliner, with embedded word documents. It is described in the post on page 3 here: http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/3338/10

There is a quick two step process to export merged documents, but it works fine with Mendeley, thus solving the maddening problem of citations across multiple chapters or documents to be merged. Let me know if you have any questions.

Best, /Pavi

Not exactly. In WO you in fact manipulate pieces of Word documents, together with all their futures, including their native bibliographical capabilities (true - very modest), Zotero integration etc.

I missed out on this myself, but apparently if you add the discount code “NANOWRIMO”, it gives you an additional 10% off (not valid with educational version though):
