    Custom Field Type "Event"

    I can guess what an event is, but it crashes Storyist every time I create one.

    iCloud sync not available

    So, your iCloud drive is not visible, then? In theory, you select "open file" and then select it from your iCloud drive.
  3. Oops, you're right. I lied to you. You've got to navigate to the character, setting, or whatever in the main sidebar before you can open it. You can right click it and select "Reveal in Project View" to get there a little faster.
  4. Click on your character and then switch over to draft or page view.

    Auto-apply format

    What about using a double return, then selecting section separator?

    reverse text for dark room or tired eyes

    I too would LOVE to have dark mode on iOS.

    Number of words per chapter?

    Outline view will also break down your word counts for you.
  8. Hi Kim, Open your manuscript section in collage view (individual section in storyboard view) and drag the appropriate section sheet, plot point, setting sheet, character sheet, whatever from the left-hand project inspector. With a section sheet you'll have the option to link them and your section sheet and the notecard for the manuscript section will update when you make changes in one or the other.
  9. If you import it, you can keep your formatting, (bold & italics) in place. If you're doing the copy/paste, you'll lose the bold & italics once you give it a style. I don't know of a way around that.

    Moving image and character files

    Well, your story file is a zip, so you can right click it and view the contents with an unzip utility. This is good for getting your images, (if you're not sure where they're at otherwise) but not so good for getting your character sheets or anything else, really. The most straight-forward approach might be to just export the characters you need to dropbox, then import them into the project you need them in. These will be rtf files, though, not "character sheets." You'll have to copy/paste if you want it in a "character" sheet.

    Moving image and character files

    No, I'm afraid it's not. If you've got the Mac version it's easy enough to copy and paste a character sheet from one project to another as a text file or notebook entry. On iOS, though, it's not really practical. You could keep both Books in the same project or gut one to keep the characters etc, and paste your manuscript in.

    I come in peace

    Awesome. Welcome, Olivier!
  13. Add another heading level for your books. Heading level 1 for the books and heading level 2 for the chapters.

    How to print comments with manuscript?

    If there is a way, I'm not aware of it. Quickest way to manually do it, would probably be to open up the comment inspector, copy the comment, and paste it where it belongs. Sounds like a good feature request, though.
  15. Hi All, Is it possible to auto-generate a table of contents from Storyist for a pdf?
