Formatting (this may be a dumb question, but I can't find an answer.


Recommended Posts

I've written a script with Storyist and loved using it. It really does make things easier. Now, I am writing a novel for the first time using Storyist. I'm having a problem with the format. I create dialogue by starting a new paragraph. That's fine, but I can't get it to stop indenting when I want to go back into the story. I've looked at preferences, and help, and inspector but I can't find out how to avoid indenting when I don't want it to. This may be a dumb question, and I may be overlooking the answer. But if you can help me, I'd really appreciate it.

I am not quite sure I understand, but as a long-time Storyist user and beta tester, let me give it a try.

I don't indent the first paragraph of a chapter. I can do that because I selected a paragraph, clicked on the Inspector, chose not to indent the first line, then, with the paragraph still selected, chose Create New Style from Current Selection from the Style menu inside the Format menu. That adds a style that I can select as needed.

if that doesn't answer your question, please write again.

Note that even if you do that, the line will still show up as indented in an e-book. But if you export to RTF and open in Word, it will be flush left.
