  1. FYI, if you only need to do a quick check of the document statistics, you can (from within an open manuscript) touch tools... View... DOcumentInfo... and it will show Words, pages, lines, paragraphs, characters and chars no repeat. I use this when I have a bluetooth keyboard attached, and it's easier than turning the keyboard off and on.
  2. Yes, I did try export to iTunes. It's another way to get a snapshot, so it's another tool in my Storyist writing belt. But if you save a second time, it will overwrite the first copy (with a warning). Awesome about the find feature. I was struggling with lack of search (e.g. when renaming a character). That's a big help and I can't wait to try it out. Also, I discovered the word count feature is available under that same tools menu. Something like Tools...View...Document Info. If I remember correctly, it shows words, paragraphs, characters, non-space characters, etc. So I don't have to
  3. Ooops... please ignore. Seems I'm a year behind.

Unfortunately, Story.rdf with the index card content doesn't appear to be in the same order as the index cards, so it's only of limited use in a recovery scenario. A
  5. Yep, I'm in with Storyist for iPad. Great app, and it's fun to use. First day spent a couple of hours and neared 2300 words. Even liked what I got down, although a bit rough like a draft. I'm sure it can't always be this easy, but I'm enjoying the early "honeymoon" period.
  6. I am trying Storyist for iPad with NaNoWriMo this month. Don't have a Mac, so no synching with a laptop/desktop. Also don't usually have wifi, so am writing while not connected to the internet. So here are the issues I've run into. Hopefully, some of you have already got solutions or workarounds to share! 1) First and foremost, I have some discomfort about [possibly] losing data. When I get home, I save the project and the manuscript to dropbox, which also keeps versions. But using Storyist for hours before a sync feels risky for a couple reasons: a. There doesn't seem to be a way
