  2. I’d like to be able to use it in my phone. I have it in my laptop and absolutely love it.

    I love Shaxpir on my laptop, but sometimes I get ideas whenever I’m out and about. It would be good to be able to use the phone to write.

  4. Find and Replace

    After a few chapters, I decided the name I chose for my MC didn't fit her as well as something else, but there's no find and replace to change all the previous versions of her name. Will have to do it afterwards.

  5. Outline

    Would be great to be able to paste in an outline for each chapter beneath the photos in the side panel. It would allow the writer to reference their outline while writing.

  6. UK English as a language option. The spell check keeps highlighting the UK spelling of words. (EG. Colour/color.)

    Add different language options on the spellcheck so I don't have a ton of highlighted errors that aren't actually errors.

  7. Word frequency analyser

    This would help writers not repeat pet phrases too much.

  8. Remember Password

    Allow setting to "Remember Me" on on individual machine, so you don't have to re-type password every time you fire up the software.

  9. British English.

    Add British English as an option. Or at least the option to add words so I can stop the underlines below BE words without having to turn off the spell-checker completely.

    I really love this application, and this is the one thing that doesn't work for me.

    Hi ! I'm a french author and just fell in love with Shaxpir ! But I'm quite frustrated I can't use all those beautiful linguistics tools in my language...

  12. Word count

    It would be useful to see the word count total so far. For example, if I'm on chapter six and click on chapter 3, it would tell me 15,000/30,000 words.

  13. I'd like to have Shaxpir in Spanish

    I would be really happy to have this program in the language I write in. It'd be even more useful and I'd be able to use all the features to their 100%

  14. export

    Why are the export lacking so much? I mean, I get we need to try to keep it as simple as possible... but... so much post editing would be required by your tool that it makes it virtually unusable?

    I think indie-authors will just publish a ton of books with Red Chapter headings because they aren't going to pay a formatter / type-setter to do this stuff.

    I'm guessing this tool is expecting its authors to find a formatter / type-setter to clean it all up... or?

    There are like zero tools that make compiling / formatting dead simple... would…

  15. 1 & 2-way Connections

    2 way connections. Connecting A to B will also connect B to A. Maybe a setting that user can choose between to be able to do both 1 way or 2 way connections.

  16. Ability to duplicate parts (Ex. Folders, Characters, Places, Notes)

    If using a general template for organizing ideas within parts, it would help to duplicate an empty template so you don't need to create the same parts and copy-paste the content every single time, especially if you have a large folder of empty templates.

  17. Disabling Sync

    It would be great to be able to use this product in offline mode exclusively, for those users who don't want any of their writing on your servers.

  18. Total word count per part.

    I would like to be able to click on a Part and see the total word count of chapters within that Part, rather than having to add it up manually.

  19. keyboard shortcuts

    keyboard shortcuts for standard operations like creating a new document are very important. Quite apart from assuaging the demands of old keyboard warriors like me, it's much more accessible than mouse navigation.

  20. Ability to colaborate

    I do most of my work in collaboration with others. This is a great program, but it does me almost no good if I can't share it with someone even if they also have Shaxpir.
