Hi Folks,

New in 3.0:

User Interface

  • New Look—Storyist 3 comes with new icons and an streamlined layout that takes advantage of new Yosemite features.
  • Welcome Window—A new Welcome window shows your recently edited files.
  • Redesigned Toolbar—A redesigned toolbar takes up less space (great for laptops) and features a customizable context-sensitive status view.
  • Notification Center Integration—Word count and progress notifications now appear in the system-wide notification center.
  • Track Pad Support—Storyist 3 supports gestures like swiping and pinch-to-zoom.

The Project Manager

  • Versions Support—Storyist 3 automatically saves versions of your projects using Apple's Autosave and Versions technology, so you can use the built-in Versions browser to explore previous versions of your projects, copy and paste sections of text to your current project, or restore entire projects.
  • iCloud Drive Support—On Yosemite, Storyist 3 supports iCloud Drive, so your Storyist files are always available on any of your Macs. And Storyist takes care of the synchronization, even if your project is open on multiple computers.
  • Custom File Templates—Storyist 3 lets you create and save file templates in addition to project templates.
  • Daily Writing Calendar—Storyist 3 keeps track of your daily progress and presents it to you in calendar form, so you can see your progress at a glance.
  • Project Word Count Tools—Tell Storyist 3 which files to count, and it will keep track of your word count for you over the course of your project.

The Word Processor

  • Snippets—A new text shortcut facility lets you define multi-part text snippets (bits of text) to be inserted with just a few keystrokes. And Storyist 3 comes with default snippets that make it a snap to write dialog without having to type the punctuation characters.
  • Incremental Search Bar—Shows all search "hits" on a page and includes support for wildcard search terms.
  • Import Style Sheets—Ability to reformat a text file with the the stylesheet of any template or file in the project.
  • Show Invisible Characters—Easily find stray characters.
  • Typewriter Scrolling—Option to have the selected text remain centered on the screen as you type.

The Outliner

  • Word Count Rollups—Heading level outline items now show the cumulative word fonts for their contents so you can see the word counts for both sections and chapters at-a-glance.
  • Show/Hide Body Text—Ability to hide body text sections in the project and outline views. Great if you write in chapters, not sections.
