Scrivener 3 + images

So just upgraded to the much-improved version 3, well according to Literature & Latte anyway.

More than a little disappointed that Scrivener 3 still does not wrap text around an image.

Yes, it’s prettier but, really?

Is text wrapping that hard?

Yes, text wrapping is extremely hard. Particularly because both the page dimensions and the image dimensions can be changed by the Compile command. So you’re asking Scrivener to automatically generate an aesthetically pleasing result regardless of the page size, text font, or image dimensions. I doubt that even dedicated page layout programs – which Scrivener is not – can manage that.

In any case, Scrivener’s focus is on research, planning, and writing, not page layout. Wrapping text around images is out of scope.


Oh. Well that’s alright then.
