Shaxpir Feature Ideas

  1. Genre writing environment themes for inspiration

    I love the way you have set this up to be a complete writing environment. Meaning all my writing is created and kept in this one environment, and I no longer will have to create separate document files for each writing project. As such I would love to be able to meld function with inspiration. Like desktop themes of old, I would love to be able to set different writing environment themes bases on the most popular genres, aka Mystery/Suspense, Romance, etc.

    These themes would be complete with animated desktop, and soundtracks to use as white noise.(i love writing with…

  2. The delete does not delete

    I open the chapter and selected the trash can, and am asked: Are you sure you want to delete the chapter named but there is no yes/no option next to the question. You have to scroll to the end???

  3. Docx export not working.

    I can export my novel to html (I am using the free edition) and it will show it exporting to docx, but I only get the title and a table of contents that has only "summary" in it. There is only 3 pages exported of a novel that is almost 14000 words

  5. Ability to work well with NON-fiction manuscripts

    Your software looks wonderful! I would like to see added capabilities to work with non-fiction manuscripts.

    Thank you very much for your kindest consideration of my suggestion.

  7. 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

  9. Add another notebook section for deleted ideas.

    Sometimes we delete things. I'd personally like to be able to write down my deleted ideas. Whether I've written something so trash or I've written something I didn't like originally and soon found a way to use it in my story, or to rebuild the scraped idea.

  10. Web links we could place in notes or comments would be a excellent addition.

    A browser wouldn't have to be added to connect within the program, but if the link could open a system browser it would provide extra convenience.

  11. It would be good to have the ability to export connections to the file as well

    I really like this software, its easy to use and have very usefull functions. What is lacking in my opinion is the ability to export connections to a docx or html file (especially in html file it make sense as you could just go to another part of notebook via hyperlink).

  12. Improvement on other languages (e.g. Japanese & Chinese)

    For Japanese or Chinese languages, I have to type the pronunciation first, and then TURN IT TO word in Japanese or Chinese. When typing in the software, I found that it would record ALL the texts. Not only the Japanese word, but also the pronunciation.
    Shaxpir is great. I like the interface very much. It would be nice if the above problem can be solved.

  13. Stretch the writing area horizontally

    I think that by moving the "word count" and the "delete button" somewhere else and allowing the writing area to take over the entire right-side panel, the writing experience would improve.

  14. You should pivot, be the Frame.io, Figma, Framer, etc. of writing tools.

    You could do it... I'd help you if you want.
    I'm also a web developer, heavy front-end, UX dev, etc.

    I think you could benefit from an overhaul with focused UX and focus on collaboration phases that real indie authors really need. A bigger focus on external integrations needs implemented as well.

    Exporting needs to be a huge focus as well.

  15. Shaxpir in french ?

    Hi ! I'm a french author and just fell in love with Shaxpir ! But I'm quite frustrated I can't use all those beautiful linguistics tools in my language...

    Would it be possible to add french on Shaxpir ?
    Thank you and have a lovely day ~

  17. 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…

  19. Principal Image Toggle

    I really like the idea of having multiple images available in the Connections screen, but the principal image appears to be fixed. Suppose I have three characters in the scene/chapter I'm currently writing, and I'd like to feature in the large image pane each character as I write about them.

    It'd be nice if I could mouse-over or right-click a different image to give it some prominence.
