Printing Index Cards

Recommended Posts

The index cards are well fleshed out and are a great help.

The problem... is that they can't be printed.

This worries me because I plotted my novel out using them and am now worried that something will happen to my APP or Ipad before my actual writing has caught up with those index cards and it'll all be lost.

 

I have been told it's a feature on MAC. But I'd like it a feature on my IPAD :D

Hi A.R.

 

Thanks for the request. Index card printing is on the list for the Mac version.

 

Printing seems to be lightly used on the iPad, so I'm not sold on adding the ability to print index cards in the iPad version (chime in here if you use AirPrint on the iPad :) )

 

On the Mac, however, you can export your card data as RTF and OPML. This is on the the list for the iPad version.

I don't even necessarily need a print feature directly from the iPad. Just allow us to email for back up, and we can then print later and from another computer if needed.

 

You say exporting this information is on the list? Exporting to email? (Not all of us have MACs. )

Hi nixart,

 

[EDIT: Sorry. These instructions are for the Mac version]

 

You can export an RTF version of your index cards as follows:

  1. Choose File > Export.
  2. Choose "Outline" from the Export popup.
  3. Choose RTF from the format popup.
  4. Select the files you want to include in the outline.
  5. Proceed with the export.
