Workarounds for tracking changes effectively in Scrivener?
February 27, 2014 8:58 AM Subscribe
I'm a playwright in rehearsals for production of a new script. I wrote it in Scrivener, and am in love with the program except for its lack of effective change-tracking features. Ideally, I'd love to find a way to generate reports on a daily-or-so basis of the changes made to individual lines that I could email out to the whole creative team.

I've done a little googling around. The "snapshot" feature doesn't seem to more than allow you to compare two versions side-by-side. I could export to Word and track changes in there, but that seems counterproductive. Scrivener also allows for writing new text in different colors for each revision, but that doesn't show deletions and seems primitive.
Any other ideas for how to easily track changes, other than ponying up for Final Draft?
