I recently suffered a major failure with a different writing software.
For reasons which are still not clear, Windows 8 decided it was no longer ‘compatible.’ Luckily, I had saved most of my work in Word, however my notes, character sheets etc. are (at the moment) all lost.
Reliability is of paramount importance, and I’m wondering if Scrivener may be a better solution.
As I understand it, this programme saves your work as a PDF file which I guess means it can be accessed independently. If true and if things do go wrong, does that also apply to all your notes etc.?
