Re: Where to compose--Scrivener or Mellel--for dissertation

Writing a book, I started with Scrivener, but moved to Mellel 4. Indexing is a big thing for me, but I also really like the new Story pane as it helps me keep in mind some ideas. I just watched the tutorial on this. Seems like it could be helpful and although Scrivener certainly does this, it actua...

Re: Where to compose--Scrivener or Mellel--for dissertation

There is an advantage to composing in an environment similar to what the reader will see in the end. It makes it easier to control visually for things like paragraph length. I agree with everything you said, especially this point. That's something in Scrivener that just sort of happens organically,...

Hi Y'all! I'm writing a 15,000 word dissertation for my Applied Linguistics course and am trying to decide on which program to compose it in. I use and enjoy both Scriver and Mellel, and they are my only true candidates at the moment. I own both. If I use Scrivener then I use Mellel, but the convers...
