Adding a template to an existing document

Recommended Posts

I've looked through the users guide on templates. It seems to suggest that a template can only be employed to a new project. Or can a template like "Novel" be added to an existing document?

Hi Pip,

 

Storyist 3 supports both project templates and file templates.

 

To add a "Novel" text file to an existing project, choose File > New > Text File and choose "Novel" from the list of text file templates.

Hmnn...What I'd like to do is take a file that I have created that is not within a template and then continue writing but using the Novel template. Would I create a new Novel using the template and then cut and paste my material into it?

Pip,

Did you import your file from Scrivener, or did you create it in Storyist?

 

If the latter (assuming you are using Storyist 3), you can click in the text window of the manuscript and change the stylesheet to Novel. Go to the Format menu, choose Style, then Change Stylesheet, then Novel Stylesheet. Tell Storyist how to match the styles (that is, Body Text to Section Text, etc.) and click Okay. Your file will take on the style definitions from the Novel Stylesheet, and you can adjust them as you like.

 

This works with files opened from Scrivener, too, but you may have to change them piece by piece, which can be time-consuming. Less time consuming than cutting and pasting, though.

Best,

Marguerite
