I'm moving an .rtf document from Storyist (from an iPad, via export to dropbox) to my PC to edit with winword and back to Storyist (via import from dropbox). When I move the file back (with import from Dropbox) the Section separator marks still exist, but all the section separator outine and index card information is lost. I have created the styles in winword for Chapter Title, Section Text, and the Section Separator. Chapter titles transfer just fine; (if I add a new chapter on the PC and mark the style as Chapter Title the outline/index card for that chapter will show up.) Is there anything I can do to add new section separators in winword that show up as index cards? Or at least not lose index cards already in my documents? Thanks for your help!
A number of people have commented both here and in the App Store reviews that exporting to RTF from Storyist for iPad causes formatting to be lost. The formatting isn't lost. But here is why you might initially assume that it is: The RTF previewer that is built into iOS and used by many apps (including Mail, Dropbox) displays only very basic formatting. As you can see in the attached screenshot, the iOS previewer doesn't properly handle: Spacing before and after a paragraph. Line spacing. Headers and footers. The formatting information is still in the file, though, so the solution is to open it in a proper RTF viewer like Text Edit or Word. Unfortunately, I can't reply to the App Store reviews. If you're considering leaving a review yourself, I'd appreciate it if you could mention the limitations of the built-in iOS RTF previewer (without disparaging Apple of course). -Steve
