Shaxpir Feature Ideas

  1. 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???

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Be able to flag chapter/scenes by character POV, action, subplot etc.

    I would like to be able to see at a glance which character's POV each chapter is and things like whether it is primarily an action chapter or background or character building etc. Maybe themes and or subplot. If it is at a glance via color or symbol or something, I could see if I was getting too many of the same type of chapters bunched together, things like that. Being able to easily pick which chapter's are a character's POV is also important. Seeing the overall flow is, too.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. password

    Store passwords locally. I was trying to write on the plane, but couldn't log into my account because it needed internet to verify my password.
