Scrivener for Windows
Write books, scripts and more with Scrivener for Windows

As any writer will tell you, there are several obstacles that getting the way of words down on paper, or on screen. As well as time constraints and the ever-present spectre of writer's block, there is also the problem of organising notes and ideas as well as managing lengthy documents as your ideas start to come to life.

Whether you are writing a thesis, a novel or a script, Scrivener is a powerful writing aid that can be used to organise notes, try out different ideas, view ideas alongside completed passages of text and much more; the app is a word processor and project management tool rolled in to one.

Scrivener enables you to create order from chaos, making it possible to focus in on small sections of your text in isolation from your other notes and research, or view projects as a whole to get a better idea of what sort of progress is being made. Unlike a word processor, you are free to organise documents in any way that works best for you and the order of text can be easily adjusted.

Working in outliner mode, Scrivener can be used to plan a project, while virtual index cards can be used to brainstorm ideas. You can also use the app solely as a means of collecting research material or to edit through rough drafts of a file. Whatever way you prefer to work, Scrivener is on hand to help you along.

Version 1.8.5:

- Scrivener no longer includes HTML data on the clipboard when copying text, forcing Word and other programs that read both to paste the RTF contents. Pasting into Word thus now preserves paragraph formatting and inline images as well as comments and footnotes. Programs that do not read RTF data will paste as plain-text.
- Added an option to the File > Export > Files… dialog to exclude a container’s subdocuments.
- Adjusted the menu entry for Duplicate > with Subdocuments to the more explicit Duplicate > with Subdocuments and Unique Title.

Verdict:

A hugely impressive writing aid that can be of assistance to everyone from script writers and novelists to students and professionals.

Is this a trial version or freeware

Posted by: Joel Dubow, 19 January 2011 13:13

The article says it is freeware yet Indy Jones says it is a trial with an expiration date. Can this be clarified?

www.downloadcrew.com reply:

It is or was free during beta-testing. Once out of beta-testing, it will be a commercial product on-sale for $40. If you submit a decent number of bug reports or feedback from the beta, you'll be rewarded with a free serial code.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
