    Putting Chapter Title in the Header?

    Thanks Steve. I'll put in a request!
  4. I'd love to be able to add custom fields to Headers (chapter title, scene name, draft version, etc). Hope this is possible!
  5. Ah, I must have missed that bit. Thank you.

    Putting Chapter Title in the Header?

    Hi Outflare, Unfortunately, there isn't a "running title" field yet This would be a great feature request though. You can set the header for each file though, so one option would be to create a file for each chapter and set the header appropriately. -Steve
  7. Hi Outflare, Welcome to the forums. You can split a section by adding the section separator (the "#" character) on a blank line. This will create a new outline entry, which you can name in the project view. The "Adding Section Breaks" section of My Manuscript in the Novel template has more information. -Steve
  8. Hi again (just posted a few minutes ago)! New question that deserves its own topic: I imported an existing manuscript, and I'm really starting to like the idea of "sections" as a way of bookmarking my complicated novel. However, I thought I could just highlight a section of existing copy, click "Create New Section", and voila! I'd now have a new section out of existing copy. However, that doesn't seem to be the case. When I do the above, a new blank section gets added to the end of my chapter. Help?
  9. Good People, New to Storyist (Scrivener convert) and liking it so far. Less muss and fuss, more write and...write. I do have a question about the Header at the top of the page: Instead of Manuscript Title, I'd like to use my Chapter title above. Is this possible? Please tell me this is possible. Thanks in advance!

    Greetings from Alba

    Hi Steven, Welcome to the forums, and thanks for the feature requests. There are actually some standard iOS gestures that get you close to what you want. A two-finger single tap on the keyboard (not in the text) followed by a drag moves the cursor. Essentially, this makes the on-screen keyboard a trackpad. A two-finger double tap on the keyboard selects the word at the current cursor location. A two-finger double tap on the keyboard selects the paragraph at the current cursor location. Hope this helps. -Steve

  12. I can help with that. Please send the file to the support address. -Steve
  13. I simply need someone to open an old .story file and save it in .etc or similar. I will provide the file to whomever would do this for me. Please help! Thanks

    Word Count - Chapter

    My apologies
  15. Hello´╗┐, I have an old .story file and unfortunately I no longer have the iPad ´╗┐that I used to write it, nor any iOS devices for that matter.o I just found a short story of mine in a old DropBox account and I would love to reclaim it, however I currently only have an Android phone and a Windows PC. Is there anyway I can access and save the file without the Storyist application? If not, could I share the file with someone who would save it in a PC/Android ´╗┐friendly format (e.g. .rtf or similar)? Thanks in advance!´╗┐ PS I will be happy to provide a link to the file. I can't really think of another way of doing this. Help/ Suggestions are really, really appreciated!

I found a short story of mine in a old DropBox account and I would love to look at it however I currently only have an Android phone and a PC. Is there anyway I can view the file? If not, could I share the file with someone who would save it in a PC/Android friendly format? Thanks in advance!

    Focus Mode

    Do'h - that feature already exists! Here's how to access it: Position the cursor in your manuscript, then choose View - Layout - Draft. The layout that shows the formatting on the current pages is View - Layout - Page Layout. I love that about Storyist: I'm thinking, "wouldn't it be great it...", and oftentimes it turns out what I'd like to see has already been implanted ­čÖé

    Showing a list of all comments

    Turns out there is: Using the Inspector (that's the panel on the right hand side), there are three little icons at the top. The one on the far right is a list of all comments. From here we can conveniently navigate to any comment, or delete the ones we no longer want so see. Thank you, Steve!

    How to get "Page curl" active in mobi eBook?

    fyi: I can confirm that 'page curl' is added by Amazon automatically. I just published a novel there today and when I got it from Amazon directly, I tried it out and see that the 'page curl' is present (without me doing anything).

    How to get "Page curl" active in mobi eBook?

    Hi, I found out the following: In my other 2 books that I published on Amazon (more than a year ago, not knowing anything about 'page curl' back then) - when I get them directly from Amazon (purchase) rather than putting them onto my kindle myself, the 'page curl' feature is automatically present WITHOUT me doing ANYTHING. So, I am confident that when I upload my new book to Amazon for publishing, the 'page curl' will be available (without me doing anything). Best, Norman

    Viewing Projects & Read Only

    Hi Todd, The demo is fully functional. There shouldn't be any read-only aspects. Could you let me know a little more about what you're seeing and how to reproduce it? -Steve

    Hi Norman, That's a good question, and unfortunately, I don't know the answer. Perhaps the Kindle forums could shed some light? -Steve

    New Blank Text File

    Hi Kevion, The "Notebook Entry" template is probably what you're looking for. It's an empty file with basic paragraph styles based on Helvetica. If you want, you can save this as a template named "Blank" as follows: Choose File > New > Text File. Select "Notebook Entry" and click Choose. Choose File > Save as Template. Change the name to "Blank." Click OK. This template will be available in the template file the next time you create a text file. -Steve

    Menu > New > Story Sheet - Issue

    Thanks Kevion, That does look like a bug. I'll fix that right away. Shoot me an email at the support address if you'd like to try the beta. As you mentioned above, the workaround is to click the + button in the toolbar and select New Story Sheet. -Steve

    Menu > New > Story Sheet - Issue

    It sounds like a bug. The best thing is to report it, just as you do here, by sending a message to bugs at storyist dot com. That will generate an issue tracker and send a message to the developer. He's usually very responsive. Marguerite
