  2. Character - is detail template possible?

    I do know that there are templates out there for character descriptions. I might want to remember that the character has blue eyes, not brown, and that they are a particular height and weight, and gender. And, frankly, I don't want to have to remember to add this information each time I'm developing a new character. I'd rather have a template that I can fill out. If I leave information off, that's my choice. But, if I forget to add something, simply because I didn't remember, then it could be disastrous for the story.

  3. Connections - Could we have connections to files and URLs?

    There is an ability to connect with pictures. There is an ability to connect to other parts of the document. However, I don't see any ability to connect to something like a PDF, a word document, or especially to a URL that might be critical to the story that we are writing.

  4. Connections should be "two way"

    If I select item A and then add a connection to item B, the connection will show while I have item A selected. However, if I then select item B, there is no connection showing, which is not the case. By definition, if item A is connected to B, then B is connected to A.

    If I select item B, and subsequently connect it to C, the A and C should show one connection each. However, item B should show two connections....one to A, and one to C.

    To do otherwise could cause the author to miss an important connection…

  5. Connections - adding a new connection is not intuitive

    It's easy enough to add the heading of "Connections", but adding the actual connection is not intuitive, since the links (small plus and minus) signs) are not visible until one hovers over that particular area with the mouse pointer.

    I fiddled around with the Connection link for 5 minutes, before my pointer rested over that area of the page long enough to see the small plus and minus signs.

    The same is true for deleting a connection. User won't see the delete link until and unless they happen to hover their cursor pointer just over the end of the connected…

  6. Color text formatting would be useful

    I would find it useful to be able to highlight text at certain points in my story development....not necessarily for printing, but for my own recognition of something that might need additional work before publishing.

  7. Desktop & Web App Synced

    Like Evernote, I'd really love to be able to use a desktop app at home/on my laptop, and sign into a web app to continue working while away from my personal computer.

  8. User-Defined Dictionary

    An author may want to use particular spellings of words, as dialect, for instance, and may want to avoid having spell check find every instance of words it deems "wrong", when those were the intentions of the writer to have those words spelled in a particular way.

  9. Story Board

    Story Board is a place to post ideas, pictures, snippets of color, ideas found on the web....in short, anything that might eventually weave its way into the story. And, most importantly, the author needs to be able to move items around on the story board, and connect them, notate them, highlight and/or color code them, so that the ideas are not lost, and begin to form the framework of the story.

    Story board would best be free-form, but could take the shape of an organization chart, or index cards....or file cabinet...or something that can be quickly and easily reviewed over…

  13. Insert pictures into the body text of a chapter

    Concept art is great, but some stories have illustrations in the body of the text.
