  1. Howdy.


    I just transferred to a new computer and can't seem to find the templates I created. I still have the old computer available. Where would I find the templates?


    Apologies if this is elsewhere, I just couldn't find a thread.


    Thank you!

  2. Did you try View > Hide Page Guides? If you did, and the lines are still there, you have a bug.


    As far as I know there is no way (yet) to set a different header for the first page. Steve has promised the feature in a future release.


    A work-around, once you're sure you will not want to make any changes to that first page (say, just before you submit the manuscript), is to edit the Title Page in the Notebook to contain the first page of text and print everything else from the main manuscript. Or, if you're submitting a .doc file, you can do all the prep work in Storyist and run the .doc file through Word or NeoOffice just long enough to remove the first-page header.




    Thanks! The lines turned off, and the first page suggestion is great! :unsure: if

  3. Here's a short story template I just whipped up for use with Storyist. Please feel free to test this and leave me any suggestions.


    Download here: Short Story Template


    EDIT: Didn't realise we could upload files :unsure: Here's the file again Short_Story.story


    Sorry if this has been answered already.


    When I use this template I get a header on the first page which I'd love to remove, and I also get a thin rule around each text box. This I'd DEFINITELY like to remove. I've tried both versions of the program.


    Any suggestions anyone?


    BTW, I've asked this in a separate post. Sorry.


    Best to all, CM.

  4. Howdy gang!


    I downloaded a short story template from the forums and while it's cool, it draws thin ruled lines around the headers, footer, and main body boxes. I can't find anyplace to turn them off. I've tried it in both versions of the program. Another problem I'm running into is I can't remove the header from the first page. Any suggestions?



  5. I'm running into the same problem. I'm using the Short Story Template, and have done plenty of page layout design, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to make the first page different.


    For my novel, I just went ahead a generated a front page that was totally different. But for a Short Story I'm having to contemplate whiteout. Ugh.

  6. Hi, sorry if it's already in the program, but I haven't seen a user-defined dictionary. I'd love to be able to put my characters' names, or heck, even my name into the dictionary without it having to be part of the Global English dictionary. Or if there's a story dictionary so I don't have character names run across all my projects. Thanks!

  7. I'm a new user, so I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong. I make a chapter or section do some writing in it, and pour a bunch of info into the section sheet. Somewhere along the line my chapter or section gets appended to the section before it, and my section sheet and notes are wiped out. I'm not sure what's going on. I've been having to make duplicate info pages in my notebook because I don't trust the section sheets.
