Dabble vs. Scrivener
Dabble builds upon what Scrivener pioneered – simplifying, enhancing, and ushering in the next evolution of novel writing software. No need to take it from just us: Read what this author had to say about Dabble vs. Scrivener.
Everything you need to love the process.
Easy to use (and beautiful, too).
No master class necessary.
You can learn how to use Dabble intuitively, jumping in and exploring. You won’t need hours of YouTube videos to explain how.
Simplicity is a core value.
From its name to its features, you can count on Dabble to remain simple. It takes more work to keep things simple, but Dabble is committed to do so. You will write better if your mind is fully committed to your story, rather than your tool.
When you write every day, it sure helps to use something that is nice on the eyes.
No special focus mode.
As part of Dabble’s simplicity, focus is automatic. You don’t have to learn about and go hunting for a special button to turn it on. You might not even notice it (which is the point).
Wherever you place your cursor, that is where it will stay vertically as you type. You don’t need to stop your typing to scroll down.
When you type, the noise on either side of the page fades out, slowly to avoid distraction, leaving you with just your words and the page.
