I’m trying to find a way to get information from my editor back and forth into Scrivener easily. They require a Docx file which they load up with editing changes/comments. At this stage, I accept or decline the changes (which by the way follow into Scrivener during import) but all of their comments are dropped. The comments move from Scrivener to the Docx but not the other way around. This should be going both ways. You do warn that on import some data could be lost but I don’t believe this should apply to comments as they are integral to editing a manuscript. Please fix this or add this to the release.
I really appreciate Scrivener and all the hard work you have been doing. Thank you for considering this request. (Now I can just hope you classify it as the bug which I believe it to be.)
No, they do not show up as inline annotations although the tracked changes appear to. The comments are just dropped. For me, this makes it impossible to move a scrivener project back and forth between Word and Scrivener as I use comments even for myself. Please add it to a feature wish list.
@rwfranz: Comments DO compile to DOCX. In your attached project, you have checked the “Remove comments” compile option and because of this they are removed. I am afraid, your report above is not correct.
