  1. Thanks cremmerson There it was. No idea how I missed that. Could be that if I cleaned the glasses now and then things might be clearer. Might even help if the music in the earbuds was not quite as loud. Phil
  2. Hello I have started using the built in comments. When one made it goes to the edge of the line where it was created. Perfect to be able to find later. It is there when the page is scrolled. Later all of the comments disappear and are only available from the side bar. Once it has been clicked there the whole series of comments come back to the pages where they were created. Have I missed something or is this the way things are supposed to work? Phil
  3. Hello Steve I have a project where I do free writing each day in a new chapter changing the manuscript file monthly. Normally I get things together a few days before the start of the month with a couple of chapters in place with sections in the new manuscript. This evening when I started the prepared October's manuscript the section index card was there but there was no # indicator. Adding a couple more sections did not bring the first section indicator there. Was able to resolve the issue by putting a section around the original one and then deleting the new ones. Ended up with a single section and an indicator as expected. Have noticed this once before but other than that can't remember much about that incident. Think it was when I started back with the new iPad. Phil
  4. Thanks for these. It is interesting seeing how someone else uses Storyist. Phil
  5. Hello The update normally takes a few days or more from the time it is submitted to go through Apple's system to be approved and appear in the App Store. I would imagine that in a few days it will appear. Phil
  6. Hello Fitch I can suggest is next time you want to start playing around and learning Outlining is to start a new blank project. That way you have less heartache if there is a problem renaming and saving will work as well like you suggested. Not sure why there was a problem trying to save the renamed file but have to guess that either Storyist or your computer got confused about something. I know this is sort of obvious but it makes life much easier if there is problems. Phil
  7. Hello M Very interesting article. Like the screen shots to help understand how things are done by others in their usage of Storyist. I assume that you are using a large sized monitor like Orren. Phil
  8. Hello Orren Thanks for the suggestions. Have been trying the split screen while setting up for the NaNo this year. Will give thought to the extra monitor when we get home in the spring. Not sure how much help it will be because I seem to move around for writing. If the weather is nice I write on the patio, if it is not so nice then I am at my desk. In the winter we live in a small motorhome in which space is at a premium so the AIR works perfectly and does not get in the way. Same thing applies about writing in different places either at the table or outside on a tiny table depending on how warm it is. Phil
  9. Hello Orren Good article. Looking at your screen shots I have to assume that you are using something larger than the 13" Macbook AIR that I use. One thing that plagues me when I get lots of things in the story is I end up scrolling up and down looking for things. Any suggestions. Phil
  10. Hello Steve I knew there was something I was missing. Did what you suggested and it worked. Was this tip in the manual and I missed it? Thanks Phil
  11. Hello I have been trying to get these working so I can track things. I have a way setup with using the outline running on a split screen that is working. When I try and get the built in Writing Goals to work no luck. I have sat down and done what the manual said with its settings and still nothing changes at all. All I ever get is 678 words done in this project, another one has only 4. It does not matter how many words I have written. In the first one there is over 30,000 words done and it still tells me there is 678, The second one has 1982 but only gives me 4 words done. Most of the stuff I do has more than 1 manuscript in it and I am wondering if there is some confusion with the Writing Goals because of this. If this is not the case could someone please point me in the right direction to get this feature working. Thanks Phil I have included a screen shot of the first one so you can see what I am talking about.
  12. Hello I am trying to set the style of font and spacing in the notes. Once the note is made I have no problems adjusting the font to be what I want. But each new note has to have this done over. Till I get this figured out I a separate manuscript setup which I keep notes in with one in each section for now. What I would like to to is change the font in the styles or a setting somewhere and have each new note reflect what I have set for a style and have the new notes with that style. There is most likely something I have missed but for the life of me can't find it. Thanks Phil
  13. Hello Steve. The"Selection Section" works. I guess that is another of those things I missed reading the manual. Note to self read the manual and not just skim it. Phil
