  2. Hi, Jude L, and welcome to the forums. Storyist doesn't have a footnoting feature: it's primarily for fiction writers. You could enter author-date citations and run a list of references at the end. Best, Marguerite
  3. Hi, I am new to Storyist and still finding my way around. Can anyone advise if I'm missing how to cite references in my non fiction book? Many thanks, J.

  5. You must be wondering to write a novel, a book or a biography of yourself but you don’t have enough awareness that how to plot such novel or a memoir. You want to be an author of your book but you can’t write a whole story for some reasons. To overcome such a situation, you can count on Ghostwriting Solution or to an individual expert for any kind of memoirs or novel service. That is the best thing to do so far. An expert Ghostwriter can write you a whole story, a novel or a biography without taking any writing credits. You just have to pay them for their efforts. Ghostwriting Solution states that this kind of services are so friendly that you just have to share your idea with your ghostwriter so that they can truly describe your persona in your memoir. What do you think about that?
  6. The SEO to optimize your website has never been more important than it is these days, the Internet helps you to have such a large business and for business success is essential to have a website optimized to ensure impact that you have a strong online presence. When you configure your website for the first time, it is best to do it in your own language and we design it for users who live in the same country, however, the Internet is global and so your website must be readable, accessible and understood by people around the world. What is SEO Optimization? It is a way of writing the content of your website so that it attracts a larger audience. When people search on search engines like Google, two sets of results are displayed, the first (which will be the main highlighted websites and the websites that appear at the bottom right) are paid ads promoting the website. The second set of results (which are the websites that appear in the main body of the search results) are all organic search results, websites that have not paid to be displayed on Google, but have included keywords that people tend to search for on your website. When a website has been optimized, it will most likely appear in organic search results, increasing the number of visitors to your website, What is local SEO and why is it important? A person in Mexico is likely to write their website in Spanish, including keywords that Mexicans search in different search engines. While this may mean that the website is perfectly optimized for Mexico, it does not mean that it is for other countries. People from other countries can search with other words, so your website may not appear in the organic search results, on the other hand, they may not be able to read and understand Spanish and therefore the content may be wasted in they. Translating an optimized website into another language is not enough for it to be optimized in that specific country, it will have to be localized SEO for each country in which you want the website to be directed. How can SEO locate your site? There are a number of professional SEO services that can optimize and localize your site for you, however many like to do it themselves, especially if your website is small and relatively new. If you want to try to locate your site with SEO, you should: Do a correct research of the keywords for the specific country towards the country, state or even city to which you are heading. · Integrate keywords into the content of your website. · Translate the content, ensuring that the meaning behind the text is maintained and the reader has full knowledge of the website and what it offers. · Register the website in all the main international search engines. Doing this will ensure that your website appears in organic searches of the place you want to go and elsewhere. Benefits of local SEO for your website: Your website can be seen worldwide, and it will appear in search engine results. By appearing in organic search results, especially if you appear on the first 3 pages you will make more people aware of your website. · You will have an increase in traffic on your site. In addition, you will have higher quality visitors, that is, people who are looking to use your services / products. · You will have a greater number of people using your site and products / services. · Your website will appear in the organic search results of the place you are going and others. With so many people using the Internet, can you really afford not to optimize and locate your website? Reference: Get Instant Economic License
  7. Hello all, This is he second time I have experienced this problem. With seemingly no provocation Storyist crashes as soon as I begin typing. I restarted my machine and even reset the PRAM to no avail. Any advice?
  8. Hi Barynz, Just enter your Storyist 3 license at the prompt and you'll be all set. -Steve
  9. I downloaded but did not install Storyist 4 BUT havingdeleted the .DRM file and the file loaded into my hidden library. Each time I load Storyist 3, which I have used for several years. I get a pop up box giving me the option to 'Enter Licence Code' - 'Use Demo' or 'Buy Online'. Currently it is telling me I have 12 days left of a Demo I have not loaded onto my computer???? How do I remove this annoying box. I cannot afford to upgrade and wish to continue using my program without this distraction
  10. Did you ever get a reply to this? I would be happy to convert it to .doc or rtf or whatever. Seems it would just be a matter of opening, exporting, and emailing.
  11. Plus one on this, highly frustrating to download a trial and not be allowed to run it because it expired!

    Hi - I have been using Celtx for a couple of years. In Celtic I can click file, the click either print or download as PDF. I’m assuming this question has already been asked, but here goes... Can I download a PDF version of my script for emailing purposes in the latest IOS version of Storyist? I seem to be having trouble doing this as the only option I get is to print. I don’t want to move to Ulysses just because of this one little nag.
  13. Sadly... the link seems to be down. I'd love to see the templates!
  14. Hi steve, just to notice that i had the exact same problem as Sanghoon (trial expired, special NaNoWriMo) i first thought there is a wrong link on your website that direct to the wrong trial file from the mac page : https://storyist.com/mac/ But the link you gave https://update.storyist.com/downloads/Storyist.dmg also direct to a version saying that "This special NaNoWriMo trial version expired on December 15, 2019? For now i found a way to not have this problem by downloading the App Store version but i fear you may lost some customers here Sincerely Yann
  15. Hi Sanghoon, It looks like you're running last year's special NaNoWriMo trial version, which expired on December 15th. You can download the regular trial version from https://update.storyist.com/downloads/Storyist.dmg, which will start your trial period when you first launch it. -Steve
  16. I love the comments feature and I use it a lot. I would love to be able to view comments by section or chapter. For example, if I have a section selected, then the list of comments in the inspector would only show the comments in that section. I don't know if this is possible given that Storyist treats the whole manuscript as a single file? One way I have found to see the comments for a specific section is the storyboard. The problem I run into with the storyboard method is that clicking the comment in the storyboard does not jump you to the text in the manuscript.
  17. Hi Steve, No problem, just sent the email.
  18. Hi Brutus, There isn't a feature that limits the width of the text in draft mode. That's a great feature request though. Would you mind sending a quick email to support@storyist.com? -Steve
  19. Two things. As protection, if you drag sections about a lot, ensure that each one ends with # on a line by itself, even if it's the end of a chapter. That clues Storyist in to the idea that you don't want merging (because the # marks the end of the section). I thought the program actually added the # before dragging, but your experience suggests I may be wrong about that. Also (and this is a Mac thing, not a Storyist thing), if you drag a chapter, watch the line that shows you where the program thinks you want to drop it: if it's indented under another chapter, then the Mac assumes you want it made subordinate. If the line is full length, it should end up at the same level as the other chapters. And if it gets in the wrong place, dragging it right above or below where you want it but making sure the line is full length should get it back to the right level. You can then move it into place. Best, Marguerite
  20. I like to use the Draft Layout in fullscreen view to focus on the text remove distractions like page breaks and headings. Is there a way to increase the margins in Draft view? I prefer to not have the text stretch across the entire screen, especially when I connect to a larger screen. As a work around, I used the ruler to increase the margins, but that messed up the formatting when I switched back to Page Layout. Any help/suggestions appreciated!
  21. I updated Sunday. The highlights look great now! Thanks.
  22. Hi Brutus, Thanks for the feedback. Version 4.1.2 (out today) has some tweaks for dark mode colors. Here's a screenshot of the new comment color. -Steve
  23. I'm having a seriously frustrating time editing my novel in Storyist. When I click and drag a chapter, sometimes it just drops where I want it and sometimes it seems to merge with other chapters or sections and suddenly have whole sections disappear and then it turns out they've merged with another, totally unrelated section. So my novel is getting more jumbled up as I go and I'm spending ages just trying to unpick the mess. What am I doing wrong? I just want to a quick, easy way to rearrange chapters without them merging with each other and/or dropping/merging/disappearing my sections. Is there something I'm not getting about how this works?
  24. Hi There, I can't see highlighted text in dark mode. The yellow highlight isn't dark enough on the white text. Is there a way to change the highlight color in dark mode? Or make highlighted text darker? Thanks for your help!
  25. Mine is crashing for the first time now, and I cannot understand why all of the sudden it crashes every damn time I use the space bar. is there any advice for crashing. My story is 149,756 words. Does my length have anything to do with it? maja
  26. Hello Steve Playing around last night and might of discovered how the extra styles seem to be getting added. My method of working is to copy & paste before editing on smaller documents. I end up with a couple of documents but being able go back if need be is worth the clutter to me. The document that gets something pasted in gains either a new Body Text or Default Style with the pasted material. When you delete the text that caused the extra style to be added it does not delete the style.You have to manually delete the freshly added style. Have found a couple of times it took twice to get the deletion to sick. This only seems to happen with documents copied within Storyist on the iPad. Bringing in a document from another app does not seem to add extra styles. Phil
