New Blank Text File

Recommended Posts

Honestly, I'm not sure why this isn't a standard since its a standard in many word processing software and many specifically dedicated to writing; be it screenplays or otherwise. You can't add a blank text file to a project. Choosing to add a text file only brings up templates, but not an option for a blank text file with no pre-existing formatting.

Though honestly even when you create a "blank project" you think it would populate a blank text file in it, but it doesn't.

This is basic standard features found in other software and Storyist lacks the "basics".

Hi Kevion,

The "Notebook Entry" template is probably what you're looking for. It's an empty file with basic paragraph styles based on Helvetica.

If you want, you can save this as a template named "Blank" as follows:

  1. Choose File > New > Text File.
  2. Select "Notebook Entry" and click Choose.
  3. Choose File > Save as Template.
  4. Change the name to "Blank."
  5. Click OK.

This template will be available in the template file the next time you create a text file.
