    So far just copy paste, chapter by chapter. If there were a way to incorporate Styles markup from Word in an import, it would take the pain out. Especially without a mobile version.

    I have a large word doc that I would like to download into Shaxpir. How do I do that.

    Thank You

    I have book one complete and the second one 3/4 complete in a series of four. How do I down load to Shaxpir

    How does one import a word document into Shaxpir?
    After that, how do I separate the chapters?
    Is there a tutorial on functions and how to best work within this program?

    Thanks you,

    Scrivener has a great feature that allows you to import Word documents into Scrivener in a way that keeps chapters separate.

    I attempted to paste and copy a Word document into Shaxpir, however, the type is so small I cannot read it. I am not able to make the type bigger. What did I do wrong?

    import of any kind would be tremendously useful, if only for testing. I'm currently using Scrivener, and not being able to copy projects from there into here makes testing the cool features with existing text onerous.

    Yes! It seems strange that there would be an export feature without an import feature as well. I love Shaxpir so far, but I'm definitely not looking forward to having to copy and paste each chapter of my 60.000 word novel into Shaxpir one at a time. :(

    Yes. My current manuscript is in MS Word with a specific header style at the start of each chapter. Some tool to get them all in cleanly would be jazzy cool.
