I use Scrivener for academic writing (thesis ~100,000 words).
I would love a feature that allowed for setting alerts/reminders (similar to the one in Evernote).
It is complicated working across such a big document and sometimes I need to remember to come back to something - so atm I put this in Project Notes and/or Evernote.
but it would be awesome if I could make a note to myself in Scrivener and then add a date alert/reminder to it, so it would pop up and remind me the bits I need to work on next or come back to or reference to look up.
Please this feature would be so good for academic writing!
