  1. That's it! Perfect... I'll get stuck into my project on storyist. Wonderful. Thanks so much Steve, and Marguerite. C.
  2. Thanks Marguerite. Ok, so can I ask you then, what is the best way to simply create index cards - with title and summary. That's it. That I can view in storyboard mode on my desktop as a series of index cards (scenes, beats) that I can shuffle around to play with the order and edit the summaries on. And that when I sync my project to iPad - I can also view as index cards there, complete with title and summary (scenes, beats) that I can shuffle around. Nothing more, nothing less. Surely that is possible? I appreciate you don't know iPpad, but you sound like you might know a lot
  3. Hey Marguerite, Thanks so much for the thorough info, and going out of your way to help. Yes - that index card and outline split screen you have attached is very close to what I'm after. (I don't actually mind if they are plot points, just that it looks like that). Your set up looks good. Now - my issue is that when I open that on my iPad, I can't have the outline that you have on the right (as plot sheets don't generate outline on iPad). And The index cards themselves don't carry the summary below the title as they do here in your desktop example. They just don't feature on iPa
  4. Hi Marguerite, Thanks for replying and helping out. In short - my issue basically is that my Ipad and Mac desktop storyboard views don't match. So far anyway... Here's the long version. I use index cards to plot out my story and get a good overview. I like my index cards to have titles and summaries on the 'front' and notes on the 'back. I like to view these index cards on a corkboard / storyboard and to move them around (freeform would be a nice future add here). I also like to view them as an outline with titles and those summaries visible. (And if possible, though not essen
  5. Hi Steve, Thanks so much for the speedy reply. Understood on storysheets only being available in outline mode on the desktop. (Would be a nice future add) I am getting close to creating the storyboard I want as you said. But I now have a new problem. Here's how I do it, and get close. I open a blank note on my iPad and type my notes as sections, separated by hastags #s. This converts them to index cards in storyboard view (So far, so good) I have to then manually go in and type the index card title -- I'm sure I'm missing a trick here and could include that in the note itself as
  6. Hi, I am viewing a folder full of storysheets in outline mode on my desktop. I can see the title and the summary. However, I don't get an option to view this folder as an outline on my ipad. Am I missing something? Related to this is a second question. I am used to creating index cards on Scrivener which feature the title and a summary, which I can then view in the outline mode. What's the easiest way of replicating that on storyist? I can't seem to add a new index card on the storyboard?? and I can't seem to write a text document that converts to outline that conv
