  2. 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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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!

  12. No word search feature?

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. World building Tool

    I'm a new user to Shaxpir and I think it's great. But I think for all of the fantasy writers out there myself included you could add a world building tool in the future. I'm using Notebook ai and have considered using others but I don't want to have different accounts for using different tools. I think it would be great to use one thing that has everything a writer needs.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
