  1. I have been using the outline view more in preparation for writing a new manuscript. It would be nice if we could make the text larger in the outline view, especially with the summary text which is tiny. I think that it would make this feature/tool more usable. Would anyone else find this helpful?
  2. 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
  3. You might have to be very patient with me, because for such a clever person, I am truly terrible at understanding written directions, especially with terminology.

  4. Jazz great Charles Mingus once wrote "Anyone can make the simple complicated. Creativity is making the complicated simple." That's also what I'm looking for in my writing software - something that makes the creative writing process simple. _________ On that note... Is there a way to create **Parallel** (i.e. multi-column, spreadsheet style) Character or Plot Outlines ? Many of you may have seen J.K. Rowling's spreadsheet-style brainstorming for the parallel plots going on in one of her Potter books. Here's the link: For brainstorming characters and plots, Rowling
  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
