  1. Thank you both for the help. That fixed it. I'm going to mess around with Word a bit now that I understand Storyist more and see if I can get the importing to work. I really don't want to copy and paste my other 130,000 word novel into Storyist!
  2. I wasn't able to get my Word doc to import properly to Storyist, so I just copied and pasted the entire novel. Then, I set it all up as "section text" (which I had set up to my liking). All was well until I went to edit some sections, when I noticed the quotation marks, apostrophes, and commas were different when I typed them (in Storyist). I'm pretty picky about things like this, and I'm just wondering exactly what is going on, and if there is anything I can do to fix it. Here's a screen shot. The top quote is what it looks like when I edit them in Storyist, the bottom quote is what it looked like when I changed all my text to "section text."
  3. Great, thanks so much for your help! Are there any forthcoming video tutorials about this program? It's rather difficult to understand for this newbie!
  4. Hello Steve, Thank you for your speedy reply. I am new to the program so I don't know exactly what the styles list is or what it means. However, I followed your instructions in both my imported manuscript and in the "Novel" template. I must have done something wrong though, as it didn't let me change anything. This is the imported manuscript: This is the default that I edited slightly (within the same project, different section):
  5. I am trying to import an existing document from Word into Storyist. I exported the Word file into .RTF, then dragged it into the Project view. For whatever reason, when I do this that part of the document turns into a "Notebook" template, instead of the "Novel" template that I had selected. Therefore, I cannot add "Chapter" segments to the project. What am I doing wrong? I can supply screen shots if anyone wants to see.
