Shaxpir Feature Ideas

  1. Manual save

    Manual save NEEDS to be an option. On regular word processor programs, I hit ctrl+s every few minutes. I just had a power flicker and the program closed unexpectedly, and it ONLY seems to save to the server if you close the program normally. That means entire writing sessions can be lost from one computer or power blunder.

  4. Actual dark mode

    The current themes do not have an actual dark mode. The lovecraft theme doesnt appear to come even close. Dark mode = black background and text color of any choice. Add this theme and let people chose the text color themselves.

  5. Forced Sync

    I think there should be a way, even with Shaxpir 4: Free, to force Shaxpir to update the current sync, as long as you are online.

  6. Can please develop an app?

    I'd like to jot my ideas down on my phone and I also have pictures on my phone that would take several minutes to upload to my desktop. It would be faster to just upload through an app. I enjoy using Shaxpir so much! Thank you!

  7. 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.

  8. Add another notebook section for deleted ideas.

    Sometimes we delete things. I'd personally like to be able to write down my deleted ideas. Whether I've written something so trash or I've written something I didn't like originally and soon found a way to use it in my story, or to rebuild the scraped idea.

  11. No word search feature?

    No search and replace? Isn't that what all word processors do?

  13. Outline

    It would be great to have a separate section for an outline with cards that could contain a certain amount of text to describe a chapter or idea.....and then we can drag and drop these cards so that we can shuffle around ideas and arrange them as we deem fit

  14. Features to expand the entire writing process


    1. An outline for the novel, with templates based on the type of novel would be great 2. a place for research so that it's easy to reference while writing, 3. a way to format the manuscript with size options, etc to eliminate having to go on Word to format, edit, then save as a PDF

  16. 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

  17. Collapse Chapter parts or scenes

    It would be great to be able to collapse and open each chapter. My left menu area is getting too long with all the parts I have in each chapter.

  18. I already said it - please place a "login" for returning users on Home page where visible - in upper right corner in the stars?

    Have a login button on Home page for easy access for returning users - I didn't see one

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
