Shaxpir Feature Ideas

  1. Footnotes

    The ability to create something along the lines of footnotes would be useful. I have read enough to know I am hardly the only fiction writer that uses footnotes on occasion.

  2. 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!

  3. Text Formatting - Need ability to paste special, removing formatting as pasting is being done

    Many like to write in MS-Word, or other word processing programs, to take advantage of spell check, etc. We do need the ability to copy/paste from those programs, stripping out formatting at the same time, or causing Shaxpir to maintain formatting, so that the manuscript looks the same in Shaxpir, as it does in MS-Word, for instance.

  5. MS Word Export with copyright/title/pagination footer (or header)

    My writers' group asks us to make sure our name, title and page numbers appear on each page. Many of us are writing for paid publication, so we put a copyright notice on each page too. Currently I post-process my Shaxpir MS Word export to include such a footer. It would be convenient if Shaxpir would do the processing for me, though.

  6. 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%

  7. Spell check

    Hi

    Is there any chance of getting the spell check in different languages? Specifically Danish since that is the language I am using for my novel?

  8. Beautiful software, but...must include other languages

    Until it includes other languages, Spanish mainly!, the other parts: adverbs, sentiments, etc, don't work. As soon as you add language support (Spanish, mainly!), I'll buy the subscription in a NY minute. Cheers

  9. We need a sync to OneDrive and Dropbox

    In order to move my work to use Shaxpir I need to be able to sync, at least backup to OneDrive and Dropbox. These have excellent security and privacy unlike google products.

  10. Improvement - Drag scenes to and from manuscript

    I've created my story/book title. And, in my idle moments I came up with a bunch of scene ideas, which I dutifully typed in as new "scenes". Now, I'd like to position those "scenes" within the manuscript, or main story. The only way I can see to do that, is to retype the "scenes" as new "chapters" and then position them into my outline.

    I would find it useful to take these random scenes that I created on the fly, and simply drag them into the manuscript, to be positioned in the proper outline.

    Conversely, perhaps I've actually added the…

  11. retrieve your work

    I am new to Shaxpir and I'm always on a hectic schedule. If I had accidently clicked off, it would be nice to get back to where I was, instead of a blank screen that never loads.

  12. HOME screen statistics gone?

    I always liked the statistics (how much words you wrote at what pace in such and such a time span) on the HOME screen but as of today 05/10/18 it's gone. Is the feature still available for the free version?

    Please inetegrate with prowriting aid, as a a plug in, or allow prowriting aid to work with Shaxpir files, like it does with scivenver and word. Thank you.

  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. 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.

  17. the ability to color code my margin comments to help identify the story element I am referencing

    It would be nice to see some kind of color code within my manuscript text to help reference what a particular margin comment is about. There could be different categories. The different story elements like character, setting, etc. And for editing changes, like "Need more research" etc. It's just an idea.

  18. Shaxpir Authors & Books Count

    Right now there isn't much of a collaborative Shaxpir community. I don't know who else uses the software, what their preferring writing genres are, how many books they've written/published, etc... I suppose one day there may be a forum for all of us to get together, but in the meantime I thought it would be cool for the Shaxpir logon process to include [A] the number of users actually using the software, and [B] the number of projects (books) currently stored in the Shaxpir cloud.

    Why, do you ask? Because this would be a reminder to everyone logging on that…

  20. 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
