MMD then converts to LaTex and I work from there. But that's a problem, especially for citation managers and other tools, which have spotty or no support for either Scrivener directly or for MMD (and the ones that do, suck hard in regards to other features, like clean exporting to my bib database).

Some years ago, there were guys using BibDesk heavily with MMD, and I even talked with the Scrivener author about integration. I do not recall how that ended, but maybe it's worth revisiting.

FWIW, I use TextMate for LaTeX, and it presents a table or outline view of your document folder. It also has tabs, but they're too tiny if you have a dozen files open in the window.
