  4. 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.

  5. Connections: Is a mindmap snapshot in future plans?

    Seeing a single connection between A and B might be useful to the author, but seeing all of the connections in a visual (picture) format at one time would be an immense improvement.

    Is that something that is possibly on the list of future improvements? Could it be?

  6. Improvement - Add new "sub section" at the context (cursor position) level

    I created my book title, and then created the first chapter. Then, I wanted to create a dozen, or so, "scenes". The goal was to arrange all of these into the outline format of Part 1 of the book.

    What I discovered is that no matter where I placed my cursor....no matter what level I was at...any new "scene" was created at the story level, and then had to be dragged into its hierarchical position (outline position).

    It would be helpful if I could highlight a level, and then insert new scenes as children of that level, rather than having…

  7. 1 & 2-way Connections

    2 way connections. Connecting A to B will also connect B to A. Maybe a setting that user can choose between to be able to do both 1 way or 2 way connections.

  10. Comments - Will they be checked/cleared prior to printing?

    If I've posted reminder comments for myself such as "Rewrite this paragraph", or "check the published depth of nuclear submarines", and I happen to forget to clear those comments, or forget to perform the particular task, will I be warned that some comments are still pending when I go to print my document?

  11. Macro Integration

    In word a user can set up macros for words used over and over again to help in editing and mid-drafting. These are great but no other drafting software offers this. It would be amazing if something like that could be added to Shaxpir. Basically the ability to search and highlight a group of words in order to cut/edit that isn't a ctl+F that only does one at a time.

  12. I find this is not working for me.

    I have used Final Draft, Very intuitive. I have user Scrivner, steeper learning curve, but ample how-to videos that make any task doable, I have used a number of writer tools and I have found they are not better than a basic word processor. Yours has possibilities, but I need better import export capabilities, more feature that I can use. (grammar assist, story-specify dictionary, etc) As is, I will continue the beta test, but would not pay $7.99 PER MONTH.

  15. Add a Research folder to be part of any project

    As with many projects there is often some research to be done. It would be nice to have a Research Notebook automatically included in each project type you select. The default could simply be when you select the plus symbol it adds a Note to the notebook.

  16. Soporte para idioma español

    Muchas de las funciones del programa sólo sirven para el idioma inglés, pero para los que escriben en español (o castellano) no sirven. En lo demás, el programa es muy cómodo.

  17. 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.

  18. Improvement - Ability to resize workspace

    Now that I've discovered the indenting of story elements, the need to be able to resize the workspace has become evident. Some scene titles are necessarily longer, and the more that indention takes place (to further refine the story), the more that they disappear under the document body writing space.

    I would like to able to make my work space larger, so that I can see all levels (and titles) of my document, which will make my workflow faster.

    I see no ability to attach a screenshot here, so I hope the explanation is good enough.

  19. Chapter Heading Images

    It would be nice if I could specify an image to go directly under the name of each chapter, before the text starts. something to alert myself, and any future potential readers that this is indeed a new chapter. This is somewhat related to the "inserting pictures into the body text of a chapter" thread, but I felt it was worth bringing up on its own.
