Hello, I have been doing some extensive research on Scrivener. I am by no means a professional writer (I'm an Accounting major), but I do like to write for fun and have considered writing my own private novel. Also, I write MANY research papers (4-8 a term). Scrivener's tools and organization look like they would be leaps and bounds ahead of Word or Pages for writing lengthly reports, once you learn how to use it. Is Scrivener as good as it sounds? Does it support all the features an academic would need? (Table of Contents, footnotes, cited pages) Most Importantly: Scrivener is available from the Mac App Store and from their site. Are these versions identical? Is there any benefit from not getting through the App store aside from the ability to enter discount codes? Thank you all.
