Literature and Latte has a nicely informative update on the status of Scrivener for iPad. Most exciting is the explicit commitment to formatting, including footnotes. Obviously, footnotes are important to me since I do academic writing, but I’m also hoping to see support for commenting. My writing and revision process relies heavily on making notes for myself through the comment feature, and I’d lose both a lot of actual content and an important part of the way I interact with my drafts if comments weren’t supported on the iPad.
AboutI'm Sydney Bufkin, a graduate student in American literature at the University of Texas at Austin. Right now, I'm teaching an introductory course for English majors and pressing on through the last two chapters of my dissertation.
