  1. My beta Storyist on my iPhone would not load because it said it had expired. I went to Test Flight to update and received an error message because it said the developer's certificate is no longer valid.


    Uninstalled both and reinstalled Test Flight first so I could re-download the Beta Storyist. I'm still getting the same error message that the developer's certificate is no longer valid.


    Is there something I'm doing wrong or is there another issue?



  2. When I am working on a section and choose "View>as Storyboard" a corkboard screen appears. I can right click on the corkboard and select "New>comment" and a yellow sticky appears. I type notes here but it doesn't appear on the comment inspector pane. This is what I was referring to in my initial post. Am I doing something wrong or is this, as I assumed, not a function yet?





    PS, keep up the great work. Every new improvement makes it easier to not look back at Scrivener.

  3. I'm running into a problem with this. I created a new Novel Stylesheet Text File and copy and pasted a large amount of text from an RTF file. In the styles pain on the right I have the following:


    Chapter Title


    Section Text Separator

    Section Text

    Default Style.


    In another text file, which I feel like I created the same way as above, I have the following:


    Heading 1

    Heading 2

    Heading 3

    Body Text

    Default Style


    I prefer the latter over the former, but am currently unable to change the stylesheet of the imported text to have Headings 1, 2, 3...

    Any suggestions?

  4. When assigning section sheets when populating the character sheets character development section, I'm running into the problem of the section sheets not being in any particular order in the list and there is not a search function or a sort function. If there is a way to sort this list please let me know. If not, can we have it set up like when I manually add a link utilizing the command L shortcut?




  5. I've searched through the forums but have failed to find a answer that addresses my question... so forgive me if this has already been addressed and direct me to the post.


    Is there a shortcut key(s) to create new Story Sheets, specifically Scene Sheets?


    I have moved a project over from Scrivener and creating scene sheets for all those scenes by the "Right Click > New > Story Sheet > Scene Sheet" method is so tedious.




  6. Yes, customizing these sheets would be great. For instance, I would love to be able to have a list like is available in character sheets. Here, you can see every section sheet the selected character is linked to. I would like to be able to have a similar list (or the ability to add or delete lists) for cross-linking between all types of story sheets.

    For instance, it would be great to see a list of section sheets within the plot point sheets or see a list of section sheets on the setting sheets, etc.


    Currently I use the section sheets to summarize every scene. On my character sheet I can see a list of "scenes" in which every character is present.


    If this customizable capability were present on all story sheets it would make it easier to follow a specific plot, character, setting, etc as it appears within the over all story.

  7. 1. I would like to have this function so when composing a section I can link the section to character sheets, setting sheets, etc. On the flip side I would like to be able to open a character sheet, setting sheet, etc. and be able to see all the sections that particular story sheet is linked to.


    2. I imagine using it for reviewing and editing. Due to being a full-time employee and a part-time writer I have to put the writing down for days- weeks at a time. This function would help in reviewing what is already written and get me back to the "zone" of where I was before I had to put it down. I would predominantly use this for characters. It goes without saying each character has his/her own plans. I like to quickly flow through the sections related to a specific character to make sure that all actions/ dialogue for a specific character are staying consistent with what I'm trying to show.

  8. I tried this and it only has "Hide Text File Outlines." I clicked this option and then "Show Text File Outlines" was visible. I clicked this and am in the same situation. I ended up adding a new text file "novel template" and copied and pasted the entire document into it. Now it works.


    Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe I was still doing something wrong. Any ideas?

  9. I was unable to locate anything that addressed this topic, so forgive me if I'm rehashing something already discussed.


    I imported a story I had written in Microsoft Word. When adding the "#"to split sections I noticed the sections were not appearing in the Project Pane. I went to Outline view and it says "Outlining is not enabled for this text file. Go to enclosing folder." I've tried to find ways to enable outlining, but it's not working with me. I'm sure it's a simple fix, any suggestions?
