It’s a very minor point but I was referring to the actual size of the writing area, vs. the rest of the screen. So if you have a wide-screen monitor, with Scrivener you can just create a white e.g. A4 size (in portrait) writing area, with the rest of the screen blocked out in black. As far as I know, Writemonkey can’t do that. The entire wide-screen would be the same colour as the writing area. I just find that that Scrivener feature helps me focus on the page and the writing (and reduces glare from a massive white screen - I know you can choose other background colours in Writemonkey, but I like white).
