  2. You know that’s exactly it Steve, I took another look at it and it is definitely the zoom level. Thanks for being on the ball, much appreciated 🙂
  3. Hi Versluis, Thanks for the report. The issue is probably that the draft mode zoom factor is set to a very small value. The next time it happens, try pinching to zoom to a more readable value. Several users have reported this. I'm not sure how it gets set so small--perhaps an inadvertent pinch or a bug lurking somewhere in the text system. In any case, the next version of Storyist for iOS limits the smallest setting to a more reasonable value. -Steve
  4. Sorry, didn’t see there was an iPad Troubleshooting section where I should have posted this. This is a bug actually and I though I’d follow up on a fix: after my re-install, I ran into the same issue as before. Turns out when you switch your document into Draft Mode, then close it and open it again, Storyist for iPad doesn’t show anything. Switching back to non Draft Mode shows all text as expected. Just thought I’d let you know - let me know if you need further details.
  5. Just a quick note, and in case this happens to someone else out there: I have recently upgraded to iOS 14, and with it I saw there was a new version of Storyist for iPad. After downloading it, it appeared that the new version didn’t want to display any of my old documents anymore. They opened just fine, but no text was displayed. Strangely, even creating brand new documents with that version behaved the same way. I couldn’t type nor read anything, even though the word counter was counting. The only thing I knew to do was to remove the app and install a fresh version. That works fine,
  6. Thanks Steve, I was able to get it from the download page on your website. Sadly there was nothing in the trash. It’s OK though, I have Storyist 4 working again on my ageing MacBook. Thankfully I still have 3 running alongside it, so I’m covered.
  7. I've been working on a story file in iCloud on a Mac, and nearly wiped out my entire text by being careless for a half second. I was able to to rescue the entire project because I had it synced to my iPhone. I put the phone in flight mode and duplicated the file before it had a chance to sync with the cloud. After this experience, iCloud is strictly a backup area for me, and I've moved my story file to Google Drive. Should anything happen, Google will recover a previous version for me. This works great on the Mac, but the iPhone app won't open the file - it's greyed out. Why?
  8. Hi Jay, Thanks for the feedback. The release notes for version 4.2 had a notice in red that describes the requirements, but it looks like it's missing from 4.2.2. You'll should find your original version in the trash. You can also get version 4.1.3 from the downloads page at https://www.storyist.com/downloads/. -Steve
  9. Hi Steve, I've just picked up Storyist on my old MacBook Pro again. it can't run anything higher than High Sierra. So I launch Storyist 4.1.2 (I think) and get a prompt that a new version is available. Excited by the release notes I hit "Update and relaunch", only to find that I can no longer use it as it requires a newer version of macOS that my hardware does not support. Please add a check to this process so users have a chance to say no. As it stands, I can no longer use Storyist 4 on this hardware. Is there a release archive somewhere that allows me to use the latest compati
  10. Hi nen1000, Thanks for the post. 4.1.3-nano is the NaNoWriMo version. Past experience has taught me not to push a new version during NaNoWriMo. 😀 Now that it's over, version 4.2 is working its way through the CDNs and should be available shortly. If you don't see it, you can always download the latest version directly from the downloads page at https://www.storyist.com/downloads/ -Steve
  11. Topic says it all really. Website says 4.2 is available: https://www.storyist.com/mac/release-notes/ but 4.1.3 (installed) claims to be the newest version available...
  12. Hi Thierry, It looks like you're running the Mac App Store version of Storyist.If you purchased Storyist from the website and have a license code, just download the version of Storyist from the website. Here's the direct link: https://update.storyist.com/downloads/Storyist.dmg.If you run that version, you'll see the dialog with the "Activate License" button. -Steve
  13. Hi all, I purchased the license and have it BUT this "Enter License Code button" does not exist. very frustrating.. I sent a message to support 2 days ago still no answer. I am stuck writing my book because I canot enter the license I bought
  14. Hi kenyang, Yes. In Storyist 4 for macOS, do one of the following: Position the cursor in the Search field in the left sidebar, enter the text you'd like to find, and press return. Position the cursor in some text in your script, choose Edit > Find > Find, and enter the text you'd like to find. -Steve
  15. can I use search function for search my script words? thanks.
  16. Hi kenyang, Unfortunately, Storyist 4 does not support macOS 10.12 Sierra. There isn't a way to change this via the terminal. Storyist 4.1.3 supports macOS 10.13 High Sierra macOS 10.14 Mojave macOS 10.15 Catalina Storyist 4.2 and later supports: macOS 10.14 Mojave macOS 10.15 Catalina macOS 11 Intel macOS 11 Apple Silicon -Steve
  17. Can I use Storyist 4 in macOS 10.12 Sierra?

    I know people cannot use in macOS 10.12 officially. but can I change something to make it possible?such as fix the terminal or some files form Storyist 4?  I have this question because the Chinese type is changed from 10.12 high Sierra. it is not good for me......

  19. Hi Barynz, Could you let me know which version of Storyist and macOS you're running? This is what I see when running Storyist 4.2.1 on macOS 10.15.7. Resizing column has gotten trickier in recent versions of macOS. In the attached screenshot, for example, you can resize the Ratings column by dragging the left edge to the left and then the right edge to the right. -Steve
  20. I have twenty one chapters with a number of 'Secton Seperators' OUTLINE - allows for many things (tick) The "Word Count" is shown as well as "Rating" but I cannot seem to get the "Status" to show on the page, I put in "First Draft" or an of the other listed status titles and... Nothing. The column appears to be closed and I cannot seem to find a way of expanding it??? Your help/advise please B
  21. Sorry for delay in response, I had no idea I had received a reply. Only here due to another problem, I have now slid the 'Notify me" across What you suggest I have been doing in some form or another, but it is a problem as as present I started out with one novel and am now writing it as two, each from different perspectives and each following different paths, the characters only overlapping on certain dates of time. It is a heavy handed way of doing it, not so bad if starting a new novel in a series, but that is not what I'm doing, plus I have already divided the novel by duplicatin
  22. I agree that it would be great to have a more elegant way of copying files between projects. Notes can be exported and re-imported, but sheets require a lot of copying and pasting to make them usable again. In the interim, what I do (because I'm in the midst of a whole series with repeating characters, some of whom first appeared in an earlier series, now complete) is simply to duplicate the most complete version of Novel X and save that as Novel X+1, so that the only thing I need to replace is the manuscript for the new book, plus add any new characters or settings or research that I did
  23. I have needed to split my novel into two separate novels - Novel A and Novel B REQUIREMENT: A simple method to copy files, links, and documents from Storyist Novel A to Storyist Novel B as a whole document. A complete Project, Scene or Section Sheet copied and pasted. ALSO: The ability to link research collated on 'Text File - Notes' which contain both notes and links to webpages To 'Drag&Drop; a link in the Project, Scene or Section Sheets.'TO THE NOTE' containing the research. I have in-depth notes and research links on Settings, Scenes and Projects in No
  24. No luck. I read through the Working with Styles tutorial, but I can't understand what it's telling me to do in regards to the Apply Styles by Matching Text. I'll go ahead and send the file to the support email. Thank you!
  25. Hi membarock, It's hard to say what's going on without see the file. I'd be happy to take a look at it if you'd like. Just attach it to an email to support@storyist.com. Did you have luck with the Apply Styles by Matching Text command? -Steve
