Has anyone used DenVog's Index Card (for iPhone or for iPad)? I've heard that Index Card projects can be imported into Scrivener, and I wondered whether or not the same is true of storyist. I have no knowledge of the file formats involved. Just curious. -- Candace
I'm using Storyist 3.0 and I have been writing in Storyist day by day for quite a while but have never really got into using index card and cork board view. I do like to work from an outline. I can do this fine in outline view. 1. Cork board view and using index cards seems ... less intuitive, to me anyway. I can only see one card, even if the outline view has several main points. 2. Additionally, I can't find a way to add a card. Add a comment, yes, but not add a card. Apologies for asking basic questions but I have read the guide and tried various things and it isn't working for me.
provis posted a topic in Using StoryistOne of my favourite features about Storyist is how the information in the index card is independent from the manuscript body, so I can write notes that do not appear in the novel. But there will be a rare time or so in which I would like to copy all the information in the index cards into the manuscript body word for word. Is there a function or a short cut that can do this? Thank you.
Hi, when I outline in index card mode, I create chapters and sections so they display clearly in a tree hierarchy fashion with the relevant information on screen. But there will be times where I would like to amend a particular section and bump it up in the hierachy as a chapter instead. In Word, it's as simple as highlighting the first line in the section and changing the style to "Heading " and the hierarchy will be revised automatically. But I can't seem to find that function in Storyist. To achieve the same thing, I have to create a new chapter, manually cutting and pasting the index card information captured in the section into the chapter before deleting the unwanted section. Is there a shorter way to achieve this, similar to Word's? Thank you.
