  1. Steve--Thank you! That worked great. I imported it as you said and the italics were intact. I then used the Format > Apply Styles by Matching Text command. I clicked the minus button and removed the asterisk-Section Text line. It then split it into chapters and retained the italics. Hoo-Rah! Thank you for your time on this. I hope I haven't made you give me information I should be getting from the manual...if so, pardon my ignorance, and thank you once again.
  2. PS: Why three RTFs: Italcs test.rtf was exported from Jer's. italics test 2.rtf -- I added some text and Saved-as RTF in LibreWriter. italics test 3.rtf -- I noticed when I opened the Jer's exported RTF in LIbreWriter that the regular font was Courier and the italic font was Courier-Oblique, so I Selected-All in LibreWriter and changed the font in this version to Courier New.
  3. Hi Steve, Thank you for your help! First, I tried your suggestion to change the preferences to OSX importer but it did not keep the italics on the import. Then I opened the RTF I had exported from Jer's in LibreOffice (I don't have MSWord), added a small amount of text, Saved-As RTF, and when I imported that RTF to Storyist, the italics were there--yay! Unfortunately, the chapters were not there. I realized the Storyist import dialogue box was different: When I import the RTF I exported from Jer's, step one of three in the Storyist Import Assistant window is "Apply Styles by Matching Text", and the resultant import is divided into chapters using the word "Chapter", but no italics are imported. When I import the RTF I saved from LibreWriter, step 1 of three is: "Replace Styles", and despite selecting Chapter from the different choices the resultant import is not divided into chapters--except in Normal, where every sentence becomes a chapter. I assume this is a styles issue and I could go through and change each Chapter title to a heading style manually, but this is a 230K word book with 64 chapters and I was hoping I wouldn't have to do that. Attached are the small, test RTFs I exported from Jer's Novel Writer and modified in LIbreWriter. italics test.rtfitalics test 2.rtfitalics test 3.rtf
  4. I am switching to Storyist and am trying to get my book imported with the italics intact. I exported the book in RTF format from Jer's Novel Writer. The italics all seem to be in place when I view the RTF in Bean or LibreOffice, but when I import it into Storyist they are gone. I have both created a new document and imported the RTF, and have tried File > Open and imported from there, but no italics. Is there some way to do this?
