Shaxpir Feature Ideas

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Find and Replace

    After a few chapters, I decided the name I chose for my MC didn't fit her as well as something else, but there's no find and replace to change all the previous versions of her name. Will have to do it afterwards.

  7. Collapse Chapter parts or scenes

    It would be great to be able to collapse and open each chapter. My left menu area is getting too long with all the parts I have in each chapter.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. I’d like to be able to use it in my phone. I have it in my laptop and absolutely love it.

    I love Shaxpir on my laptop, but sometimes I get ideas whenever I’m out and about. It would be good to be able to use the phone to write.

  12. Remember Password

    Allow setting to "Remember Me" on on individual machine, so you don't have to re-type password every time you fire up the software.

  13. 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. Outline

    Would be great to be able to paste in an outline for each chapter beneath the photos in the side panel. It would allow the writer to reference their outline while writing.

  16. UK English as a language option. The spell check keeps highlighting the UK spelling of words. (EG. Colour/color.)

    Add different language options on the spellcheck so I don't have a ton of highlighted errors that aren't actually errors.

  17. HTML editor

    Since Shaxpir doesn't have a built-in timeline along with many other such features I thought it'd be nifty to have the ability to use html in notes, that way I'd be able to script my own timeline and I'm sure many others would find a use for it

  18. Word frequency analyser

    This would help writers not repeat pet phrases too much.

  19. Word count

    It would be useful to see the word count total so far. For example, if I'm on chapter six and click on chapter 3, it would tell me 15,000/30,000 words.

  20. 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.
