I am trying to get a sense on the differences between these two applications on my fast growing manuscript. What is important for me is to be able to navigate with speed and easy through my manuscript. I also need the ability to synch with a cloud drive seamlessly between all my devices, i.e. Desktop, Laptop, iPad and iPhone.
The above said, I have been using and do like Scrivener. I am able to synch To Dropbox, which I use as my cloud. There are issues with not getting the same formatting between my Mac’s and iPad, but this easily is fixable, and able to update the master manuscript - as long as I don’t corrupt the master manuscript.
In the interim, while waiting for Scrivener OiS version - I decided to give The new Microsoft Word 2016 version a try !!, that recently was released. I think they call it Office 365. To be honest, I now find, I have everything I need ! . Microsoft gives me a 1 TB on their cloud - OneDrive. I have installed MS Word on all my devices, i.e. desktop, laptop, iPad and iPhone and all synch with the master manuscript. Plus, I am able to navigate to any part of my manuscript via the navigation panel and with styles and more ! all is highly customable and provides the same look, features and more than I thought possible with scrivener !
The question now, can someone tell me what I can’t do with MS Word, that I can do with Scrivener ?.
