Alexander, thanks very much for these, they are both great. Unfortunately I couldn’t install Q10 on Windows 7, but runs fine on XP.

Early last month I did an informal test of Scrivner with Dragon Naturally Speaking—and the text input fields are not what Dragon considers normal. I believe that was not true of the corkboard notes field—that one, oddly, reporting back as normal according to Dragon.

I haven’t messed with subsequent releases although I would expect that characteristic is already pretty much set in programming stone.

Having said that, it is true that Dragon 11 is usually dead-on accurate, so correction hassles will be minimal.

Happy New Year to all!

That could be because Scrivener doesn’t use the native Windows interface but is built on top of QT GUI framework (I believe).
Try to contact the developer who is highly responsive.

For context, here’s another interesting tool providing an environment for writing without distractions; Textroom is free and works on Windows, Mac and Linux.

See here http://code.google.com/p/textroom/ and here http://textroom.sourceforge.net/

Alexander,
TextRoom is a good find. I’ve been playing with it this afternoon and it’s a keeper. Thank you. gB
