Scrivener v. 2.4 for Mac just released

Users who purchased Scrivener directly from Literature & Latte should see an update notice when they open the app. If you purchased your version through the Mac App Store, you’ll have to wait a couple of days for it to be approved and posted. Here’s the information being sent to Scrivener’s Mac users:

Scrivener 2.4 adds numerous refinements, is fully Retina Display compatible, and includes many bug-fixes. It is a free update for all registered users of Scrivener 2, and we recommend that you update from whatever version of Scrivener you are using. Updates and fixes include:

  • Scrivener is now fully Retina Display compatible (every icon and graphic has been recreated at twice the size to take full advantage of the Retina display).
  • Added support for Regular Expressions in all find and replace features (Lion and above only).
  • Many improvements and additions to Compile.
  • Added full support for the Fountain screenplay syntax ( to Import, Import and Split, Export, Compile and External Folder Sync.
  • Added drag-and-drop support for Scapple notes (Scapple is our upcoming freeform mind-mapping-type app – please see ).
  • The Scratch Pad can now be set up to use plain text, making it easy to sync scratch pad notes with iOS apps.
  • Inspector comments and footnotes can now be zoomed with the text.
  • Updated MultiMarkdown package to 3.7.
  • Improved e-book export, in particular to accommodate Amazon’s stricter Kindle formatting rules and to avoid iTunes Producer rejecting certain EPUB files.

  • Over 100 other refinements and bug fixes.
