  1. No worries. Glad you were able to resolve the problem. -Steve
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Hi membarock, If the formatting didn't update to match the novel stylesheet, it's likely that the file is already using that stylesheet (so the Change Stylesheet command had nothing to do) and the styles are instead overridden for each paragraph. If this is the case, you would see the red triangle in the styles list the inspector when you position the cursor in some section text and the style description would read "Section Text + <your changes>." To revert to the original style, you can simply reapply the appropriate styles to the paragraphs. For example, position the cursor i
  11. Hi membarock, Yes, you can do this as follows: Position the cursor in the file you want to change. Choose Format > Style > Change Stylesheet > Novel Stylesheet. In the dialog that appears, choose the styles you want mapped to the novel styles (they may be the same). Click Change Stylesheet. -Steve
  12. Hi Micha, Storyist doesn't currently support drop caps. That's a great feature request, though. -Steve
  13. Hi Anthony, You can export a PDF from a Storyist project by selecting the script in the folder view, selecting Share from the more menu, and choosing PDF as the export type. You can't currently do that from a script outside a Storyist project, but that feature is coming later this summer. -Steve
  14. Hi Anysia, I just replied to your email to support. Don't worry, we'll get to the bottom of it. Some early versions of Catalina had an issue that caused saved window state to be corrupted, which could cause problems when reopening an app. If you think you might be running into this, hold down the Option key when reopening Storyist. This will cause Storyist to skip the window restoration step. -Steve
  15. Hi Anysia, Could you let me know where in the world you're downloading from? I don't see a problem in the US, but the content is hosted by Amazon, and it's possible that they served an outdated version to you. I can reset the cache if that's the case. Here are a couple of things to check: Make sure that you're opening the correct Storyist.dmg file. If you've downloaded Storyist in the past (say, for example, during the last NaNoWriMo), you may have multiple versions of the file in your Downloads folder. If you have multiple versions of Storyist on your computer and you're
  16. Hi Barynz, Just enter your Storyist 3 license at the prompt and you'll be all set. -Steve
  17. Hi Sanghoon, It looks like you're running last year's special NaNoWriMo trial version, which expired on December 15th. You can download the regular trial version from https://update.storyist.com/downloads/Storyist.dmg, which will start your trial period when you first launch it. -Steve
  18. Hi Brutus, There isn't a feature that limits the width of the text in draft mode. That's a great feature request though. Would you mind sending a quick email to support@storyist.com? -Steve
  19. Hi Brutus, Thanks for the feedback. Version 4.1.2 (out today) has some tweaks for dark mode colors. Here's a screenshot of the new comment color. -Steve
  20. Hi KKorwal, I'd be happy to investigate. I see you sent an email to the support address, so I'll follow up there. -Steve
  21. Hi Werewolf, Thank you for the report. Unfortunately, you're encountering a bug in macOS 10.15.0 Catalina. A work-around is in testing and should be available shortly. -Steve
  22. Hi Maury, Good to hear from you! Yes, there is an upgrade option. You'll find more information about that here. -Steve
  23. Hi James, This is a request from 2009. Thanks for the bump. -Steve
  24. Hi Barynz, The styles in the story sheets are fixed. If you're able to temporarily change the font color in a story sheet, you've found a bug. Apologies for the inconvenience. I'll investigate. Changing styles in story sheets is a feature request that's been on the list for quite a while and is something I hope to get to later this year. -Steve
  25. Hi Dan, We corresponded at the support address, but I missed your post here. For others who are interested: There isn't currently a query or synopsis template, but you can create one if you want. To do this: 1. Create a new text file in your current project. 2. Enter the text for the template and style it to taste. [1] 3. Choose File > Save as Template. 4. When the template dialog appears, make sure the "Save as" popup says "Text File Template" and enter a name and category for the template. 5. Click Save. Your template is now available in the templat
