Some of the new stuff in Scrivener 3 is pretty exciting. Check it out for yourself: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/

A single CSS file in EPUB export? YES
Automatic conversion to MultiMarkdown? YES

I’ve built a pretty nice Scrivener workflow, based on MultiMarkdown, already. The upgrades should let me simplify it, at least for EPUB (my primary output). I’ve built two different transforms to print as well (XSL:FO, and typesetter markup).

Now if L&L gives us the ability to pull in documents from a library, I’ll be in TAKE MY MONEY NOW mode.

Still irritates me that the OS with 85% of the market continues to get the short end of the stick in their development. A look at their changes reminds me that just about *every* text processing software has had these “improvements” for quite awhile.

Maybe all of that is why I no longer bother with Scrivener.

I’d suggest cutting them some slack.  The blog says (repeatedly) they’ll do macOS first, then Windows.  There’s only two developers according to their site—we’re not looking at corporate Adobe here.  And if 85% of their users demanded Windows apps you can probably assume they’d flip their plans 180 degrees.  Assuming they are rational, they go first where they know the money is.

I second that emotion.

Literature & Latte seems pretty solid, but whenever I read on this forum about a Mac-only developer going out of business, or being “forced” to rely on a subscription model to stay in business, the first reaction is: maybe you should have put out a Windows version of your product. At least there *is* a Windows version of Scrivener, though it does sleep in the cupboard beneath the stairs most of the time.

Sounds interesting. Would you mind sharing your workflow with us?
