Scrivener as a Note Taking program

Scrivener is a very good writing tool, but it could also be used for note taking and so it deserves a review.  Scrivener was designed as a word processor, it stores its collection of related documents (which could be notes) as separate .RTF files in a folder on the hard disk, this is called a project.  When you save a project all the documents in the collection which have been changed are saved.  Scrivener also makes automatic backups of the collection at regular intervals.  For large collections this can eat up a lot of disk space but this may not be significant on modern hard disks with many hundreds of gigabytes available, and it does mean that if something goes wrong you can go back to an earlier version of your project.
