I love Scrivener. It’s my go-to software for large writing projects. Scrivener makes organization easy, from chapters to research. However, I can’t figure out how to use it when tracking changes with an editor.
I’m currently collaborating on a book on Lion. As I complete each chapter, I export it to Word, enable Track Changes and then turn it in for copy editing, technical review, etc. It comes back with notes, I make revisions, re-submit and so on.
At that point, I never touch Scrivener again, because it can’t (at least as far as I can see) track changes the way Word can. That’s unfortunate on one hand, because it’s a super piece of software, and a real nuisance on the other, as my careful organization is lost when the project becomes a single Word file.
If you know how to work with Scrivener while tracking changes with an editor or other party, please let me know. I’d love to figure this out.
