  2. Paperback formatting

    I've long struggled with paperback formatting. Not a big revenue generator, but to be able to simply input my dimensions and headers, then have the bulk of the formatting done for me would be fantastic. Obviously things like widows & orphans and hyphenation would need to be done manually, but a correctly-sized .rtf file (or in-Shaxpir) file would be a great start.

  5. Improvement - Edit: Find and Replace

    In my last novel, I had misspelled the name of an Air Force Base....an actual historical Air Base. Fortunately, I discovered the issue, and was able to use "Find and Replace" to make sure that all occurances, of which there were many, were replaced.

    Will we have that capability?

  6. 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.

  7. User manual ?

    Eventhough Shaxpir's seems pretty straight forward, is there or do you plan to issue a user manual soon ? Just to leverage each functionality the correct way. Many thanks in advance for your reply.

  8. Ability to link NaNoWriMo API Key

    This would automatically track how many words you've written/still need to write to hit your daily goal during NanoWriMo as well as update your progress on the NanoWriMo site for you.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  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. Custom formatting styles

    I like creating quick styles I can easily apply to all of my documents. Scene breaks, internal monologue, LitRPG elements like stats, "music" when characters sing, etc. It would be nice to create a library of these and easily apply them alongside "paragraph" and "heading 1".

  16. Accents and Macrons

    I am not entirely sure whether or not this is already a feature, and if it is...I can not figure out how to use it.
    I believe we should be able to type letters with accents or macrons.

  17. 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.

  18. Book Status

    I would love to be able to add a "status" to my books and projects. I have some works that are now complete and published and I'd like to archive them so they're not in with works in progress.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
