  1. Today
  2. Thanks, Steve! Appreciate the fast action.
  3. Hi Werewolf, Thank you for the report. Unfortunately, you're encountering a bug in macOS 10.15.0 Catalina. A work-around is in testing and should be available shortly. -Steve
  4. Yesterday
  5. I've sent a ticket to support - along with the error data - just wondering if anyone else is having a crashing issue and might be able to offer some assistance. It's crashing pretty consistently and unfortunately, the autosave isn't fast enough. I swear I've moved to typing a line, clicking on save, typing a line, clicking on save, repeat!
  6. Last week
  7. Thanks for the info. I have just bought the upgrade! Cheers!
  8. Hi Maury, Good to hear from you! Yes, there is an upgrade option. You'll find more information about that here. -Steve
  9. Hi, ol' Storyist user here. I've been thinking of upgrading to 4, for both the IMAC and Ipad. Do I need to buy the entire licenses or is there an upgrade option? Cheers
  10. Earlier
  11. I looked in the Preferences, but didn't find a way to turn off the colored lines that appear when you spell something wrong or have a grammar issue. In Microsoft Word I turn it off so I can focus on writing and edit it later. Is this a feature and if so where can I turn it off at? EDIT FOUND IT: Go to >> Edit >> Spelling >> 'Uncheck each item"
  12. I typically like to use keyboard shortcuts when I do lots of repetitive tasks. Lately, I've been using bookmarks during my manuscript revision process. Ive found when using the bookmark keyboard shortcut, it crashes Storyist. Has anyone else experienced this?
  13. I would also be very interested in seeing a ProWritingAid plugin created for Storyist. ProWritingAid has an API and pre-build SDKs for various programming languages. https://prowritingaid.com/en/App/API Not sure how heavy of a lift this would be to develop? I also use Scrivener, but I haven't tried the ProWritingAid plugin for it yet. Storyist is still my favorite editor. I don't want to see it getting left behind.
  14. Hi James, This is a request from 2009. Thanks for the bump. -Steve
  15. Has anything ever come of this feature request? I know that there are various online word frequency checkers, but I hate the idea of pasting in my entire manuscript in order to use any of them. Scrivener has this feature, so I hope that this feature makes it to a future update of Storyist, and hopefully soon.
  16. Thanks Steve, NO- I cannot change anything in the Story Sheets - As I said, i had hoped to change the Font Colour as the current colour won't print. Hope to see it soon. Thanks again, Regards Barynz
  17. Hi Barynz, The styles in the story sheets are fixed. If you're able to temporarily change the font color in a story sheet, you've found a bug. Apologies for the inconvenience. I'll investigate. Changing styles in story sheets is a feature request that's been on the list for quite a while and is something I hope to get to later this year. -Steve
  18. I thought I had the problem solved BUT NO Within minutes of posting this, I found by deleting "Untitled Plot Point", a brown heading. Changing the colour, then putting my own heading, I could get the desired result. Thought I'd finally solved it. But NO. Even this does not change the Font Colour - after 'Saving' and then coming back into the document, I find it has reverted back to its original colour ???????? Barry
  19. I may have the placed this in 'Troubleshooting' incorrectly, but having spent hours attempting to change the Heading Colour on the Plot Point Sheet, I felt this was possibly the right place. I have version 3.5.2 (12352) I am at a critical point in my 80K word novel and require to print off the Plot Point Sheets. Problem: The Heading (Title) of each sheet is a mucky Brown Code CC9933 - As this will not print on my printer I have attempted to find a way to change this to standard Black Code 0000 Can any body tell me how I can change this. For me at this point of time it is important to have the Titles = Chapter references and Summary of the chapter printed Thank You in Anticipation Barry D Jones
  20. I am wondering if it is possible to allow integrating Storyist with ProWritingAid web service. I found ProWritingAid extremely helpful and would really welcome the idea of both storyist and this service working together.
  21. Over time I discovered that out the slowness wasn't limited to switching between outline mode and text mode. Sometimes Storyist 4 on the Mac simply freezes, often for more than a minute. If I wanted to keep working, I was reduced to a Force Quit of the application since it wasn't responding at all. I limped along for a couple of months in the hope of a new release. Eventually, in the absence of any fix (or even a response to my original post), I settled on the simple solution of reverting to Storyist 3. Problem solved. Regards, Allan
  22. I am not quite sure I understand, but as a long-time Storyist user and beta tester, let me give it a try. I don't indent the first paragraph of a chapter. I can do that because I selected a paragraph, clicked on the Inspector, chose not to indent the first line, then, with the paragraph still selected, chose Create New Style from Current Selection from the Style menu inside the Format menu. That adds a style that I can select as needed. if that doesn't answer your question, please write again. Note that even if you do that, the line will still show up as indented in an e-book. But if you export to RTF and open in Word, it will be flush left. Best, Marguerite
  23. I've written a script with Storyist and loved using it. It really does make things easier. Now, I am writing a novel for the first time using Storyist. I'm having a problem with the format. I create dialogue by starting a new paragraph. That's fine, but I can't get it to stop indenting when I want to go back into the story. I've looked at preferences, and help, and inspector but I can't find out how to avoid indenting when I don't want it to. This may be a dumb question, and I may be overlooking the answer. But if you can help me, I'd really appreciate it.
  24. Me too. It appears to be related to the external monitor I have plugged in. Also using a bluetooth keyboard, if that matters. The cursor does not appear to move using arrow keys, but when text is typed it inserts it into a new location as if it had followed the cursor keys. I was using it this morning in laptop mode fine. 2018 MBP, 15in. MacOS 10.14.5, Storyist 4.0 (12561)
  25. Hi Dan, We corresponded at the support address, but I missed your post here. For others who are interested: There isn't currently a query or synopsis template, but you can create one if you want. To do this: 1. Create a new text file in your current project. 2. Enter the text for the template and style it to taste. [1] 3. Choose File > Save as Template. 4. When the template dialog appears, make sure the "Save as" popup says "Text File Template" and enter a name and category for the template. 5. Click Save. Your template is now available in the template chooser, and you can add it to other projects as well. -Steve [1] One place to look for inspiration is the book Formatting & Submitting Your Manuscript from Writer's Digest.
  26. Hi Winterwolf, Welcome to the forums. To remove the page number from the first page: Open the Format inspector (Command + Option + 2) and check the "Different first page header" checkbox in the "Headers & Footers" section. Position the cursor in the header, select the page number, and press the Delete key. I've attached a screenshot in case it helps. In this case, you won't need to change the starting number (the second page will still have the number "2"), but you can do that if you need to by entering a value in the "Start at" field in the "Page Numbers" section. -Steve
  27. Hello, I am trying to find a way to remove the page number on the first page of my screenplay. I've looked at your documentation and I have also watched several videos. It seems in a different version of Storyist, under the "Format" menu, there should be a menu that says "Page." Unfortunately, my version of Storyist does not have a "Page" menu. The only things that show up when I click on the Format menu are Font, Text, and Style. When I go to Page Setup, it's only printer preferences. I am using the latest version of Mac iOS Can you please tell me how to remove the page number from the first page of my screenplay? Also, is there any way to edit how Storyist numbers pages? For instance, I tried starting the page numbers on the second page, but I could not find a way to choose which number I would like to start from...for example: 2 Regardless, I need assistance. Thank you for your time and expertise.
  28. Hi, Neil, I think you misunderstood the manual. As I read it, "You can export text files" is a general statement. It doesn't necessarily mean you can export more than one file with a single click. You can export multiple files from a Storyist project at one time on the Mac, but in iOS you need to send one at a time. That's why the "Send" icon grays out as soon as you select more than one file. Best, Marguerite
  29. I have been a scrivener user for quite long. Having been buying / upgrading both iOS and Mac versions religiously on day one of release. Although the software is nice but lately I've found the plethora of options little overwhelming. What I want is the software to get out of the way so that I can focus on writing more. Moreover the other problem that is becoming more and more apparent for me is the lack of support for iCloud sync. I heard that it is due to the way scrivener project files are created. I am seriously considering moving to Storyist on Mac and iOS as it checks all my writing needs. @Steve wondering if there is any discount for folks who switch from Scrivener to Storyist permanently? BTW noticed from the template title page that the zip code (94087 - If it's yours) is next to mine (94086). thanks, Sachin Walia
