  1. Interesting ... That must be it! I copied and pasted the text from another screenwriting program (which is thoroughly left in the dust, by the way!) so that must've created an "RTF" file? (Which stripped the style definitions?) So, if I understand correctly, if I open that document I've been writing on my iPad in the Mac Storyist and redefine the shortcuts, the next time I open it on iPad it should just automatically work? (and if I had simply originated the file on the iPad, the Tab and Next Style functions would just work?) Thanks for your help.
  2. Hi Steve, Thanks for taking the time to reply, line by line ... I'm not so savvy with the whole quoting business, but I'll try to address remaining questions: - As for the Storyist iPad using the "Tab" and "Return" elements, that's great to know it's built-in, it's just not working with my Apple Keyboard. So, there's gotta be some bug here ... Can I help troubleshoot it in some way (email logs, etc?) - Thanks for the page numbers trick! That was immensely helpful. "I can see clearly now ..." - Great tip about deleting the folders I don't need. I love that - now I can keep
  3. Hello All! Here are some ideas to evolve Storyist for iPad: Tab / Element Support For External Keyboards I write in screenplay format using an external keyboard. As I was writing today, I noticed that there was no tab support for cycling through the script elements (Slug Line, Action, Character, Dialogue ...) So every time I introduced a new element, I had to find it on the screen and poke it with my finger. It may not sound like a huge deal, but throughout the life of a script and several rewrites, that does become a pretty big hindrance. (*I thought this was a featur

  5. Hi All, I read through the Storyist User's Guide and this wasn't super-apparent to me, so I apologize in advance is this is a "N00B" question. Is it possible to create nested "stacks" or "groups" of index cards in either the screenwriting or manuscript view? Here's a rough image of what I would hope to enable: https://skitch.com/m...ript-untitled-3 Ultimately, it would be wonderful to view index cards as sets, because I like to write in the traditional "Act" format, and it would be quite helpful to see headers telling me when one stops and the other begins. Thank you fo
  6. Hi Steve, Thanks for taking the time to map out this helpful tutorial! I've modified the NCX file and changed the Play Orders accordingly. I saved the document, and now - onto the Kindlegen ... This is where I become a N00B. As for "running the Kindlegen" in Mac, do you mean opening the Terminal and typing that command code? I opened that file, and came up with this window: https://skitch.com/mosscow/8jpey/kindlegen Now, am I supposed to hit return and type in the path to the .mobi file I would want to create? Based on the "path to kindlegen" you see in that pi
