I’m writing a scientific paper in Scrivener since I love the binder concept and the writing targets. But it’s no end-solution to writing and I’ve been forced to use other applications several times. One thing that should work better is the table formatting. The table editing is clunky and buggy and the tables end up looking really bad. I’m considering making the tables in Pages and exporting them as PDF vector graphics or something. The table editing needs cell-level border style control and better selection for cells to offer at least a modicum of control. I prefer different border styles for header rows vs body rows, for example. I prefer thin lines, down to 1 or .5 pt if possible.
Does anyone have any tips to share?
