  2. A Tutorial/Guide

    Shaxpir looks really neat, but it's a lot to jump into right away. Scrivener has an extensive tutorial to get user acclimated to the different parts and how to fit them together. Maybe Shaxpir should have something similar.

  3. Proper handling of Em and En dash, Ellipses.

    Please add the above so that I don't have to paste in Google docs to get the em dash, then paste back into Shaxpir.

  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.

  6. 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.

  8. Ability to Organize Connections

    Is it just me or can one not arrange connections once they are established on a page? Each idea/article/short story, etc. has several connections and after a while I wanted to standardize the way the connections were listed but I was not able to move them up or down to list them the way I wanted to see them.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Auto correct

    I use auto correct as a tool to streamline my writing by creating my own "corrections". For example, BWH automatically becomes Blackwood House; BM becomes British Museum, and Kth becomes Katherine, the name of one of my main characters. It's amazing how much time and effort it saves me when typing in Word.

  13. Be Able to Right Click and Select Menu Options (Such as Delete, Revert, Etc...)

    I keep wanting to default right click on parts or chapters or things I do no longer want, or want to revert to an earlier state, and It keeps jolting me out of the experience because I can't do that

  14. Select Text and be able to scroll up or down just by moving the cursor

    In Microsoft Word, Pages, Open Office, and new software like Wavemaker etc..., you can select text and move it up or down, moving the page with you and allowing you to highlight more text that just what is visible. It's very frustrating to not have that feature and honestly, being unable to easily copy and past will probably make me move away from Shaxpir until it's fixed!

  15. Word frequency analyser

    This would help writers not repeat pet phrases too much.

  17. 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.

  19. 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%

  20. 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.
