Recommendation for manscript editing software

Hello, I am new to Scrivener and I like it very much. I was wondering if any of the expert users have any experience using a manuscript editing software similar to ‘writers workbench’ or ‘stylewriter’ (both are windows only) that work with Mac. Also, is there a way to export highlighted text from Scrivener? I tried to export a document with several highlights and the exported version did not have the highlights.
Thank you, Jose

I can’t answer the first question but I can answer the second. The OS X text system treats highlights as a “background colour” when exported rather than a true highlight, which means that the highlights will appear fine in programs like TextEdit but not in MS Word etc. I have fixed this for version 2.0, so 2.0 will take highlights across to other programs provided you use the RTF format. Hopefully someone else will be able to answer your questions about editing software.
All the best,
