Dragon, Word, Synchronizing

I want to use Dragon NaturallySpeaking but it does not work well in Scrivener, because it cannot correct or edit text. I have tried the following tricks:

  1. Copy the whole piece to MS word and back. Problem: when pasting back in Scrivener the footnotes become inline notes.
  2. I read a forum advise to synchronize the project with an external folder. Problem: After editing the rtf and synchronizing again the text was replaced in Scrivener by unreadable characters. The whole piece was lost.

Please advise on how to use Dragon with Scrivener the best way.
