  1. family

    It would be really useful to be able to tag characters to a particular family / friendship group / work group / squad so you can see everyone in that group in one place.

    • Story Time Line

      Would be great if there was a feature where you could create a timeline with system of dates, etc. This would be incredibly helpful, especially when creating a world that has a lot of events that have impact on the current story.

        • iOS App

          I write on an iPhone and iPad. Having an app is pretty important because the website experience really isn't that stable on mobile.

          Additionally, having an app would allow for specific keyboard short cuts and other features to be put in place.

          • Add more word counts in Writer for individual scenes and "folders" with multiple text documents underneath.

            When writing, I usually need to know the word count of the scene I'm writing even more than I need to know the total word count, especially since I don't write in order and always have a couple thousand words from later in the book written that mess up the total words written and where I need to be in the plot at a given word count. It was incredibly difficult trying to keep track of where my words were going in the book without being able to see the word counts of my scenes in Writer unless I navigated…

            • Add Standard Character Attributes

              It would be helpful if there was a list of standard attributes you will want to know for most characters. Sex, age, height, hair & eye colour, job and so on. It would save time if I could change a setting so that each new character inherited a box for each of those for me to just fill in. I may want to create my own but I know all my characters will have an age and a height and a job. It would also be helpful if, having creating a unique one, you could then simply add that to…

              • Access Stories from world landing page

                When you click on a World we have the option to invite someone, which isn't needed every time we open a world for the day. What would be great is if there was a link to the stories in that world with some relevant information like word count, status, and/or goal end date. It would make the world landing page more relevant.

                • expand/enlarge the video graphic on the QUICK-TOUR.

                  Enlarging the video for the Quick-Tour introduction would be a big help for us myopic writers struggling to make out details on a small screen Ipad. Thanks!

                  • get rid of [blank] added a character unless the project is shared with someone and it was not done by you [the owner]

                    Whenever I'm working on adding characters and changing information around, I always get this annoying pop-up with my email saying I made a character. Yes, I know I made one because I... just did it. I don't need a notification about what I'm doing to my own project, plus the pop-ups are quite annoying since every time I add a new character/element/whatever, the pop-ups seem to multiply and take up even more of my screen.

                    • More relationship choices.

                      I'd like more relationship choices. Especially pet. Some of my characters are animals, and I'd like to link them as such. Other covers too much ground.

                      • duplicate template

                        I'd love to be able to duplicate a template so that I could edit it. I see a place to create my own template, but rather than have to copy the template I want to modify, it would be great if I could take a premade template, duplicate it as a custom template, then make my own adjustments to it.

                          I'd like to be able to highlight a specific word/phrase/sentence in Writer and add a comment pertaining to just that part of the text I've highlighted. (Like how commenting works in Google Docs.)

                          • Hold on to deleted files

                            I'd like there to be a way to delete things (particularly from the beats and Writer) without them disappearing permanently after 30 days. That is, I want to be able to cut something from my story but not lose it forever, in case I ever want to refer back to it. Transferring the words to a different program to remove it without losing it is annoying and breaks my flow.

                            • Split screen feature

                              Would love the ability to look at two different things at once, like two beats, a beat and a character, etc. I often need to refer to something else while I'm writing something.

                                Not sure what's going on, doesn't appear that anything is happening and yet I was paying almost $10 a month and all I can is generate note and ideas, I don't see any option to start writing, all I see is the ability to create characters, and ideas and add pictures, etc. Where do you actually start writing, do I create a story template, add ideas and characters and then wait until you have mastered the ability to write an actual novel but still pay $10 a month, what is Going On?

                                  Some of us (me!) aren't ever going to be collaborative writers, and having this option take up space on the main world screen is annoying.

                                  Suggest it can be replaced with either a set of thumbnails of the individual stories in the world or else with shortcuts to the starred characters.

                                    Working in Speculative Fiction I find the Worlds breakdown distracting as I am dealing more with Multiverse's than worlds. So it would be great to be able to change it to Universe or even Project if not our own name. This would echo the need to have sub worlds or stories with a larger project.

                                      I think the concept of faving individual characters so they show up on the side bar is really great, but would it be possible to link them to stories, instead of the entire world? I work on multiple stories within my worlds and currently, each time the cast of characters changes I have to manually modify the list, which is time consuming. Having them linked by stories would allow us to customize those lists quickly and dedicate more time to the writing
