  1. 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 🙂
  2. 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.
  3. 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,
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. I’ve sent this over as a bug report recently, just in case it has slipped through the cracks of the internet, I thought I’d post it here to. In case you have this issue, there is a workaround. When I open Storyist 4.1 on iOS 12 (iPad), no items show up in the sidebar when it was closed. Neither documents nor chapters show up, the list is completely empty. However, when the sidebar is already open by the time Storyist is started, items show up correctly. Storyist remembers the state of the sidebar, so when it’s closed, it’ll open closed upon next start. The workaround is to leave the
  7. I’ve been getting into the iPad version of Storyist 4 and was wondering if there’s a way to collapse all chapters at once. When I open my document they’re all open by default, and it makes it slightly cumbersome to collapse each one individually, or scroll to the bottom of the list. I guess the list would look shorter when they’re collapsed. I’ve attached a screenshot if the area I’m referring to. Thank you for any tips!
  8. Do'h - that feature already exists! Here's how to access it: Position the cursor in your manuscript, then choose View - Layout - Draft. The layout that shows the formatting on the current pages is View - Layout - Page Layout. I love that about Storyist: I'm thinking, "wouldn't it be great it...", and oftentimes it turns out what I'd like to see has already been implanted ?
  9. Turns out there is: Using the Inspector (that's the panel on the right hand side), there are three little icons at the top. The one on the far right is a list of all comments. From here we can conveniently navigate to any comment, or delete the ones we no longer want so see. Thank you, Steve!
  10. Marguerite! Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction. I can't seem to find the actual arrow, but I found the menu item under View - Go Back (and Go Forward respectively) and their respective shortcuts on the Mac Version. Perhaps I've disabled the toolbar necessary to show the icon. I'll keep hunting though. As for the iPad Version: I'm mostly using an external Mac keyboard with it, and I found out that holding the CMD key down, Storyist shows a list of shortcuts for the current view. A full list of iOS shortcuts can be found here (thanks, Steve!): http://storyist.com
  11. Is there a way to scroll to the bottom of the current document on iPad, via a keyboard or onscreen shortcut? I know this featrue is available on the Mac version (I believe it's Function + cursor down), but I cound't find anything similar on the iOS version. Speaking of which, the Mac shortcut is great, but when used by accident, there's no easy way to go back to where you were before (or is there)?
  12. I was wondering if there's a way to show a list of all my comments in a Storyist file. Currently, when I make a comment on a section, it's difficult for me to find at a later time to do some work on it. So what I'm doing right now is add a comment, as well as a bookmark, because bookmarks can be seen in the column on the left hand side (not sure what it's called, kind of the "file inspector"). But it occurred to me that it's twice the work, adding a comment as well as a bookmark. So I was wondering if there is indeed a way to display my comments in a similar way to the bookmarks. Is
  13. Just in case you run out of ideas, I like the idea of something like Focus Mode. What I mean by that is a writing experience much like we have now in full screen, with no distractions, but in addition it would display just the text we're working on, without showing the page breaks. I feel it can interrupt the flow if a page break comes up and I find myself constantly at the very bottom of the screen. I'd love it if Focus Mode could just focus on the last few lines of text, no matter if there was a page break or not, and give me some room at the bottom. It would be like having an endle
  14. I think I figured it out, at least how to insert a blank line: press Enter to start a new paragraph write the first few words of said paragraph go to the beginning of said paragraph and hit Enter again However, I still can't figure out why this behaviour is *sometimes* happening while I'm writing.
  15. Bizarre stuff indeed. Perhaps your project file is corrupt, or there's a file permission problem. Try duplicating it in Finder, then open the copy and try to save some changes there. If that works, something's amiss with the original.
