I have been using Manuscripts for a few days, and now I'm giving up on it. I'm really sad.
Here are some problems I encountered while I wrote a draft with PNG figures and some equations.
Copy and paste (C&P) bug : It's slow and I can only C&P safely at the end of a paragraph. When I wanted to C&P in the middle of a paragraph, I first split the paragraph, C&P, and merge them. What a efficient way of editing. But, still I wanted to use Manuscripts.
Can't change figure size : I can't change size of a inserted figure. Figures are always expanded to a full width of Manuscript. I can only give some margin for a figure, which is not helpful. But, still I wanted to use Manuscripts.
Cross reference is often broken with no reason. But, still I wanted to use Manuscripts.
Eat words and figures : Sometimes, when I reopen the Manuscripts file, figure links are lost. "Question marks" replaced my figures. Figures only at first. But finally, it had eaten a lot of words. I thank God that I exported my draft into a tex file just before Manuscripts had eaten what I wrote for about 10 hours. I would have killed my self if I didn't make a tex file copy, and finally I decided to seal Manuscripts.
p.s. When I searched Manuscripts website on google to write this, I found the following document,
, unfortunately Manuscripts has not been improved sufficiently.
Maybe my problem is only for macOS 10.12.1 (latest one). But, it is too scary for me to use Manuscripts after the accident. I'm really sad that I have to give up on Manuscripts and developers of Manuscripts seem to lack their responsibility. I could not see any warning on using Manuscripts on the latest macOS.
