Scrivener 3 is essentially a word processor designed for long writing projects, meaning you can stop trying to make Microsoft Word work for your lengthier pieces of work. It lets you write in any order that makes sense to the project you're working on, be it a novel or a research paper, and keep everything organized with an easy-to-use project outline and fast access to any background material you need to refer to. There are powerful editing tools built in too, whether you simply need to fix typos or restructure entire sections. When you're done with your manuscript, it's simple to export it to popular formats such as Word, PDF, Final Draft or plain text to suit your needs and those of whom it is destined for next.
