What are possible alternatives to writing "that being said," "having said that," "that said." i want the alternatives to mean the same thing too, not kind of sort of the same thing.
"be that as it may", i already know of and i don't like it
Maybe things like "notwithstanding that" or "nonetheless," or "even so" would work, depending on the context.
Even taking that, (or those things), into account
To recap . . .
That's not quite the same context. I don't think the aim is to summarize, but to contrast a previous statement while clarifying that it's still true.
used to introduce a statement that contrasts with or seems to contradict something that has been said previously.
"People tend to put on weight in middle age. However, gaining weight is not inevitable"
nevertheless, nonetheless, but, still, yet, though, although, even so, for all that, despite that, in spite of that . . . .
Thank you everyone for your help.
