Do I need Word on an iMac to export a .DOCX file from Scrivener 3 for use in Vellum?


I just acquired a new-to-me iMac so I can use Vellum. Vellum imports .docx files only. I’ve been using Scrivener 1.9 on a PC up to now, but I want to migrate to the iMac with Scrivener 3. (I know I have to buy a new license.) Will Scrivener 3 export a .docx file that Vellum can open even though I don’t have Word on the iMac?


Nope, you don’t need Word on your machine. Scrivener uses the Mac’s native .docx exporter.
