  1. Hello Steve Playing around last night and might of discovered how the extra styles seem to be getting added. My method of working is to copy & paste before editing on smaller documents. I end up with a couple of documents but being able go back if need be is worth the clutter to me. The document that gets something pasted in gains either a new Body Text or Default Style with the pasted material. When you delete the text that caused the extra style to be added it does not delete the style.You have to manually delete the freshly added style. Have found a couple of times it took twice to get the deletion to sick. This only seems to happen with documents copied within Storyist on the iPad. Bringing in a document from another app does not seem to add extra styles. Phil
  2. Hello Mauy If you look under the "Window" menu item on the menu bar there is an item which will open that window for you again. Click on "Welcome to Storyist" that should bring it back for you. Check the "Show this window" button and you should be away. Phil
  3. Hello Steve The latest version fixed this. Thanks Phil
  4. Hello Steve Working in the latest update of Storyist from the App Store. In a new document when I try and select the header to delete everything except page number it does not work. Even tried selecting the header in the project that is the Getting Started document. Same thing. Followed the directions in the manual and nothing. Am I missing something? Phil
  5. Hello Steve I have taken to using the new feature that allows you to have two incidents of the Storyist running side by side. Have to say that this is great for me and the way I work. When I check the open apps after having closed out the second incident of Storyist it is still running. I have to assume that this is the intended behaviour. Was sort of confusing the first time. Is this the way it is supposed to work? Phil
  6. Thanks cremmerson There it was. No idea how I missed that. Could be that if I cleaned the glasses now and then things might be clearer. Might even help if the music in the earbuds was not quite as loud. Phil
  7. Hello I have started using the built in comments. When one made it goes to the edge of the line where it was created. Perfect to be able to find later. It is there when the page is scrolled. Later all of the comments disappear and are only available from the side bar. Once it has been clicked there the whole series of comments come back to the pages where they were created. Have I missed something or is this the way things are supposed to work? Phil
  8. Hello Steve I have a project where I do free writing each day in a new chapter changing the manuscript file monthly. Normally I get things together a few days before the start of the month with a couple of chapters in place with sections in the new manuscript. This evening when I started the prepared October's manuscript the section index card was there but there was no # indicator. Adding a couple more sections did not bring the first section indicator there. Was able to resolve the issue by putting a section around the original one and then deleting the new ones. Ended up with a single section and an indicator as expected. Have noticed this once before but other than that can't remember much about that incident. Think it was when I started back with the new iPad. Phil
  9. Thanks for these. It is interesting seeing how someone else uses Storyist. Phil
  10. Hello The update normally takes a few days or more from the time it is submitted to go through Apple's system to be approved and appear in the App Store. I would imagine that in a few days it will appear. Phil
  11. Hello Fitch I can suggest is next time you want to start playing around and learning Outlining is to start a new blank project. That way you have less heartache if there is a problem renaming and saving will work as well like you suggested. Not sure why there was a problem trying to save the renamed file but have to guess that either Storyist or your computer got confused about something. I know this is sort of obvious but it makes life much easier if there is problems. Phil
  12. Hello M Very interesting article. Like the screen shots to help understand how things are done by others in their usage of Storyist. I assume that you are using a large sized monitor like Orren. Phil
  13. Hello Orren Thanks for the suggestions. Have been trying the split screen while setting up for the NaNo this year. Will give thought to the extra monitor when we get home in the spring. Not sure how much help it will be because I seem to move around for writing. If the weather is nice I write on the patio, if it is not so nice then I am at my desk. In the winter we live in a small motorhome in which space is at a premium so the AIR works perfectly and does not get in the way. Same thing applies about writing in different places either at the table or outside on a tiny table depending on how warm it is. Phil
  14. Hello Orren Good article. Looking at your screen shots I have to assume that you are using something larger than the 13" Macbook AIR that I use. One thing that plagues me when I get lots of things in the story is I end up scrolling up and down looking for things. Any suggestions. Phil
