  2. So the issue is that when you add a scene in the Screenplay template under Mojave, you get both a new scene and a scene called #? —— Yes. If I click on the # in the manuscript, It has the Section Separator style applied. The blank line is Scene Heading (Section Text in the Novel template). If I change the blank line to Scene Heading/Section Text and the # to Section Separator, it does that fix things. Best, Laker

    Resetting Page Numbers After Prologue

    Sorry, Outflare, I missed this one the first time. Click on the Inspector icon at top right to open the Inspector. Click on Chapter 1 in the Project View. Click on the paragraph mark in the Inspector and scroll down until you see Page Numbers. Click on Page Numbers to expand it, and you should see two choices: Use default value (selected by default) and Start at. Click in the button next to Start at and you should be able to set the value back to 1. I checked this in the release version to be sure I wasn't giving you false information based on the beta I'm currently using. Best, Marguerite

    Resetting Page Numbers After Prologue

    Bumping for exposure (please forgive). 😬
  8. Hi Steve, I tried that by the steps, by created 2 projects from Novel and Screenplay templates, and get the results: 1. A blank line following a "#", but no "#" on the side bar. (Novel project) 2. A blank line following a "#", and one "#" on the side bar. (Screenplay project. This is my question.) Plz check out the attachments. Regards.
  9. Good People, Apologies if this is already discussed, I looked but couldn't find this specific question! My novel has both a prologue and an epilogue. I would like to keep it all in one project for simplicity, however I could like my page numbering to restart with Chapter 1. Currently my Prologue is 16 pages long (I'm working on shortening it!), and then I have a title page and after that, Chapter 1. Instead of having Chapter 1 start at page 18, I'd like it to start from 1 all over again. Is this possible? If not, I'll bump this over into feature requests. Thank you!

    Storyist for Mojave?

    Ditto, working great with Mojave.

    Storyist for Mojave?

    It works fine under Mojave for me.
  12. Steve, I'm not sure a bug I reported is relevant here, but I did just update the post under Bugs in the Beta forums. Perhaps it will provide a clue?
  13. Hi Laker, I'm not sure if I understand the question. When you add a section to a novel, you should see a blank line followed by the section separator character (#"). Is that not what you're seeing? Try this: Create a new project from the Novel template an open the file titled "My Manuscript." Select the last section (the one titled "Getting More Information") and type the Command+Enter shortcut to add a new section. Notice that the manuscript now contains a blank line (the section body) following by the section separator. Kindly let me know what you see when you do this. -Steve

    Unable to use the Tab Key on MacBook

    Unable to use the Tab Key on MacBook

    Hi Sarah, Uninstalling the program probably won't help, though you wouldn't have to buy it again if you did. Here are some things to check: Make sure the Preferences > Text Editing > "Enable tab key shortcuts" checkbox is unchecked. (It sounds like you've done this already.) In the file you're editing, make sure the Inspectors > File Info > Shortcuts > "Use application preferences" radio button is selected. Make sure your text file has tab stops set. The easiest way to check this is to open the Format inspector and look at the Tabs area. If you're still not able to use tab stops, please post a screenshot of the Text Editing preferences window and the File Info and Format inspectors. If you'd like, I'd be happy to take a look at the file for you. If you'd like me to do that, please send it to the support address. -Steve

    Unable to use the Tab Key on MacBook

    Thank you! I'm not sure what the problem is, but I have tried that and it hasn't made a difference. I'm not sure if my program is glitching or not, but I've restarted both it and my laptop and it hasn't made a difference. If I uninstalled the whole program would it make me buy it again to reinstall it?

    Unable to use the Tab Key on MacBook

    Hi Sarah, Welcome to the forums. By default, Storyist uses the tab key to change styles. The default novel template sets a first line indent so you don't need to tab to indent the first line in a paragraph. You can easily turn this off, though. Just open the Text Editing pane in Preferences window and uncheck the "Enable Tab key shortcuts" checkbox. You can turn this setting on and off on a per-file basis too. Open the File Info inspector (View > Inspector > File Info), locate the Shortcuts section, select the "Use the following values" radio button and update the "Enable tab key shortcuts" checkbox to reflect your choice. -Steve
  18. I am unable to use the tab key in Storyist. I've already gone into Preferences and turned off 'Enable Key Shortcuts', but it doesn't seem to have made a difference. I just want to be able to use the tab key like you would in Pages or Microsoft Word. I've thought of uninstalling Storyist completely and reinstalling, but I'm afraid I'll have to buy it again if I do that. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    "This Writer Uses Storyist" web badges

    Hi, Robin, If you go up to the message where Callista originally posted the icon, then Control-click (right-click) on the image itself, the forums will give you the option to download it (assuming you're on a Mac—not sure if the same process works on an iPad or phone). Welcome to the forums! Marguerite

    Storyist for Mojave?

    No, Storyist is not abandonware. It's still in active development. Where did that come from? And I expect it works fine with Mojave, as the developer is usually quick to test these things. But I think my Mac's too old to run Mojave, so I can't confirm.

    Storyist for Mojave?

    Is Storyist abandonware ? if it is can you Open Source it?

    Storyist for Mojave?

    Has anyone upgraded to Mojave and checked to ensure the current version of Storyist works with it? I'm on High Sierra, but am working on a story and don't want to upgrade my OS in case there are issues with Storyist because I don't want to put a hold on my story until Storyist is updated.

    Limit Dropbox access to a Storyist folder

    Thank you for this posting. I believe things have moved to Open ID Connect, built on OAuth 2.0 have they not? In any event, I ended up abandoning the Microsoft ecosystem entirely for Apple and Google, due in part to Dropbox on my old HP desktop. It was being used to upload files (and erase them entirely) from my desktop. There is another feature of enabling Dropbox on the desktop and that is a persistent user credential on the device. I have never touched it since. I use iCloud or Google Drive and have a Box acccunt just to upload and save files. It is much safer! I also only buy apps from the App Store and use ESET.

    reverse text for dark room or tired eyes

    I just enabled Dark Mode in Storyist on iOS but some of the text is dark blue or even black on a nearly black background. The curser is dark blue and not visible. All of the text in Dark Mode should be a pale white or pale yellow. (It is so nice to see this feature though and I hope the text contrast issue is fixed soon.)
