Got a Mac? Need some word processing software? Try these 5 programs. Looking for a free Microsoft Office alternative for Mac? These are Apple's own alternatives to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Markdown exports as clean HTML and you can generate beautiful PDFs using apps like Ulysses.
And Scrivener's split-screen mode allows you to have the document you're working on on one half of the screen with your research notes above or below. The corkboard view allows you to see how documents and sub-documents relate to each other and, if you prefer, a separate viewing mode organises them in outline form. You can create a synopsis for documents which is stored with the document, as well as adding keywords and other metadata.
Another panel allows you to add references and another makes it straightforward to take a snapshot of a document and roll back to it later, if you want. Once you're ready, the Compile feature makes it easy to pull all the documents and sub-documents in a project together ready for printing or export, including to the Kindle eBook format. If Scrivener is overkill for your writing needs, Ulysses offers a simpler option.
It combines elements of iA Writer, such as Markdown support and distraction-free writing, with a document library similar to that in Scrivener.
Whereas in Scrivener, you create a new document for each project you're working on, Ulysses works slightly differently. Its interface looks a little like macOS's Finder and, like the Finder, it provides access to all your documents - but from within the app. There are light and dark modes and you can customise, for example, colour palettes.
Ulysses has a typewriter scrolling mode similar to those in Byword and iA Writer, and also has a split-screen view like the one in Scrivener. Ulysses has seen quite a few updates in recent years, with new features added all the time, making it a competitive app in an already crowded field. Blogo is a great application if you want to draft blog posts on your Mac and upload them directly.
It has the benefit of looking and feeling like a modern Mac application thanks to its design, and is also available for iOS with support for Handoff. You can use Blogo with self-hosted or Wordpress. It supports Markdown for writing and editing, but you can also work in rich text.
If you prefer, however, you can use the inline HTML mode instead. There's a basic image editor built in and the Preview allows you to see how your post will look when you post it to your blog. You can schedule posts and a browser extension makes it easy to add web content posts.
The basic version, which is all that many users will need, is free. A subscription-based Pro version is also available, and that adds support for multiple blogs and features like syncing drafts with Evernote and moderating comments. The Mac has been blessed with several good screenwriting apps, but the default choice has always been Final Draft. Step forward, Slugline. At a fifth of the price of Final Draft, Slugline has plenty to offer.
It's heavily focused on typing and using the keyboard, rather than mouse, to format for your script. So, for example, type a character's name and it's displayed in all caps, and the script formatted for dialogue.
Start a new scene by typing INT. You can add notes to scripts, create outlines as you go, and hide, rather than delete, chunks of copy. Slugline documents are saved as plain text so you can work on them on a text editor on any platform. And when you're ready to export, you create a PDF ready to be shared or printed.
