I thought Scrivener was primarily for script writing. What is it good at and what doesn't it do?

Scrivener is primarily for nonfiction. It won't do mindmapping which is probbably okay. It's good at literally everything else. 30-day fully-featured trial. You have nothing to lose.

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. I've never found mind maps to be useful so I don't mind its absence.

Might want to try bibisco, as well. It's a free alternative to Scrivener.

I use Scrivener for everything other than my day job. I utterly love it.

But my day job requires me to create and output exquisitely formatted sales proposals of around 100 pages or so. Scrivener is excellent at outputting scripts, books, etc, but it isn't a page-layout application for complex pages.
