I agree with Cory post a 100%. I am also willing to wait, but
please keep it in your back burner. Full integration between papers
and scrivener, a beautiful idea. If you build it they will come.

I'm experiencing the same problem using Papers2 w/ Scrivener as
Simon Knight (posted in this thread on July 09) - i.e. when trying
to insert citekey inside Scrivener, I get either noting at all, or
whatever happens to be on my pasteboard.
Any ideas, anyone? Papers team - is this a known bug (it used to
work just fine, don't know after which update it stopped).

I just wanted to more clearly state that we have 2 opened bugs
with the Scrivener interaction, that we still need to solve. I have
not been yet able to understand what is going on, but I hope to
eventually get those fixed:
issue with insertion of citations with Scrivener; instead of the
citation, you get the current content of the clipboard; the bug is
not always there, and sometimes linked to the use of another 3rd
party app that interacts with key strokes
issue with footnotes created by Scrivener for Word: the
citations are mangled by Magic Manuscripts when inside footnotes;
the bug seems to affect all users
Thanks for your patience on this. I will update everyone on this
thread, as well as individual discussions that others have started,
when more info is available.
Thanks for your work on this. However, I find that running 2.3.9
I am not having success with MHRA on Scrivener.
My workflow is:
Use MM dialog to insert cite-key in scrivener footnote.
Compile scrivener document as .docx
Open the .docx in Word. The cite-key is there in the footnote.
Open MM dialog and set the referencing style to MHRA
Result: The first word of the document is removed and replaced by a
footnote which now contains the reference that was inserted at a
different location. Also, the location where the citation footnote
should be is now an empty footnote.
The above is an example using a single citation and a line of
text, run as a test.
If I go the alternative route of having the MM citekey in the
main text in Scrivener, then I can get things to work, but it is a
pity to have the cite keys in the Scrivener main text, and much
better to have these keys in footnotes in the scrivener doc as
Hope this helps. Looking forward to seamless Scrivener/Papers
integration which would be pretty close to the ideal writing
