comment How to cite an entire paragraph?
I actually wanted to quote the entire paragraph directly. I was not quite sure if I could use quotation marks for the entire paragraph or indent the whole paragraph. Elsewhere I read you need to cite once. So I felt if I just copy this entire paragraph without indenting/quoting from a book and write (Author,Year) only for the last sentence wouldn't it mean that I have attributed only the last sentence like this(Anonymous, 2011).

I downloaded Scrivener Beta for my Ubuntu just now. In the readme I was surprised to see this - "Release version 1.0.0 of Scrivener for Linux will be a zero cost licence. This is due for release early June following the Windows release. That should make a few nix folks happy."

One more concern is the validity of beta, 30 May 2011. I would need it for few more days after that, and again if it locks me in proprietary format I won't be able to use the files created effectively at a later date. Anyway I am going to check it out. Thanks!
