Sure, if it integrates with Scrivener like that, then I can see its appeal. But I don’t have a Mac and I don’t tend to keep too many images in Scrivener for Win.

Instead, I save a VUE map as an image file (JPG or PNG), and then drag and drop it into ConnectedText (from my Dopus window). For just a section, it would have to be a screenshot (with Greenshot) and then do the same. It involves a few more steps but it’s still fairly quick, as Dopus is always open in the background for me, as is CT. I suppose the same process could be followed with Scrivener.
