Thanks for pointing that out, Matty. I hadn’t realized Biblioscape 8 had come out of beta. The documentation about the new features (particularly the ‘Composition Module’, which is what I’m most interested in) also appears to be more complete now, and I am much more intrigued than I had been. In fact, Biblioscape appears to excel beyond Ideamason in allowing compiled drafts (collections of notes) to be edited directly, whereas in Ideamason the compiled view is read-only, and the editing must be done on a note-by-note (or idea-by-idea) basis. In this sense, Biblioscape seems to have appropriated a feature of Scrivener. The only issue, of course, is that Biblioscape Professional (the cheapest version that includes the Composition Module) costs $199 (at the Educational Discount price). But the software does appear to include a rather generous 99 sessions of free trial use, so I’ll give it a whirl.

Thanks again for the heads up,
