Need Word Installed to Export .doc files?

Somewhere in my lizard brain, I may or may not remember a post or two on the RSS feed mentioning that you need Word installed to export to .doc. If I Lion-up, my Word 2004 goes away, but I haven’t opened it in three months so that likely won’t be a loss. Unless, I can no longer edit files in Scrivener, then export them as .doc files to authors for their review.

It’s possible this is a Windows-only aberration, but I need reassurance.

Hi Ahab,

That was a Windows-only limitation (I can’t remember whether it still exists). Scrivener relies on no external applications for any of its export methods, except for Kindlegen for Kindle export.

All the best,

Reassured, I am.
