“I genuinely think this is the biggest software advance for writers since the word processor.”
—Michael Marshall Smith, best-selling author.

Literature & Latte Ltd is pleased to announce the launch of Scrivener 1.0 for Windows, available for purchase today, November 7th 2011. (http://www.scrivenerforwindows.com).
First launched for the Mac in 2007, Scrivener is an award-winning application dedicated to the structuring and composition of long texts such as novels, screenplays, reports, legal documents, theses and research documents.
Designed especially for creating first drafts of long documents by writers using multiple sources, unlike most word processors and page layout programs, Scrivener's toolset is dedicated to the creation of content rather than formatting.
Features such as split screen and the ability to import media documents including web pages, images, sound, video and PDF files allow writers to refer to research as they write, without switching between documents or programs.
Meanwhile, Scrivener's fully integrated corkboard and outliner allow users to plan ahead - or restructure their work after the first draft is finished.
A host of other tools such as statistics and targets and a name generator are also at users’ fingertips.
Once completed, drafts can be printed directly from Scrivener, exported to a variety of common word processor file formats for final formatting and submission, or exported to e-book formats for self publishing.
Scrivener for Windows has been developed in response to requests from writers, academics and professionals seeking a PC-based program with the capabilities of Scrivener for the Mac.
Key features include:
- Edit Multiple Documents
Split your project to create limitless documents in the same draft and edit them separately, or merge them dynamically and edit them as a whole.
Virtual index cards store a synopsis for every document you create. Storyboard and rearrange your project by moving these around on the corkboard.
A fully-featured outliner helps you take control of the structure of your work. Use the outliner to plan first and write later, or write first and use the outliner to make sense of that messy first draft.
- Full Screen Editing
View your text in full screen for distraction-free composition.
Take a snapshot of a document then edit and rewrite in the confidence that you can restore an earlier revision at any time.
Create collections to keep arbitrary lists of documents and research, independent of their regular order. Track documents that need attention or use Saved Search Collections to generate automatically-updated lists of related documents.
Assemble your finished draft for printing or exporting to your favourite word processor for final formatting. Export to web or e-book formats for self-publishing. With support for footnotes and comments and the ability to reformat your work during this stage, you can produce submission-ready novel manuscripts and much more.
