  1. Hello everybody, First, I'm a french writer so sorry for my english. I'm methods engineer, thriller and SF writer. I used to write daily since 2001 and I'm a Storyist user for years. My two last novels (second part of "Baron Noir", my steampunk serie, and "Evariste", a thriller) were written on Storyist and I'm working on the third volume of the Baron Noir saga (250 pages yet. 100 more expected). For novel, I don't know a better tool than Storyist. I love the way to prepare the novel structure on iPad, and the way to write and follow the work on my computer. For technical book (I wrote a cookbook, and I'm working on a knowledge management manual), I prefer using other tools, as Ulysse (sorry for that). But I tried using Ulysse for a novel and I resign after 3 chapters : for large file, nothing is better than the Storyist Chapter/section view. So long life to Storyist. I hope this tool will continue to improve, and I'm ready to give a hand if required (for french interface translation for example). Best regards, Olivier Gechter

    Footnote/references

    Hello I've the same issue. I'm used to write historic novels, with plenty of footnotes. To replace the missing function, I'm using a markdown syntaxe as "(* Text of the note )" or {FN Text of the note} It's not very convenient, because I have to work on Ulysse or other markdown editor to replace the marks, but it works. I hope Storyist will consider the need of this very simple function for a next version. If an administrator of this forum could give us his opinion on this, it would be nice. rds O.G.

    Multi languages support

    Hello, I'm a french writer and I used to write my novels on Storyist. I try to promote it around me, but the lack of multi language support is a real problem. People doesn't understand why the iOS version is available in French and not the mac version. Consequently, Ulysses is generally prefered by the european authors, despite the lack of planning mode. To enlarge your market penetration, I would recommend you to propose a support at least for spanish, french and german. Best regards Olivier Gechter

    Visual files and folders

    Hello ! First of all, I'm very happy by Storyist on ipad and I'm using it every day. However, I would like to propose a small improvement : The section label is really convenient but it cannot be used to navigate in the document (ie : when select a section, move the cursor at the beginning or the section). For a big file (a 60000 word novel for example) it could be really convenient. Thank you in advance. Best regards Olivier (France).
