  1. Not (always) auto-delete beats when backspacing.

    It's actually convenient to be able to delete beats that I've accidentally created by backspacing, but I'd like for them at least to not be deleted when I've already entered a title in a subject line then accidentally backspace in the text area one too many times.

    • Adding notes in writer

      Would be great if we could add notes in writer as we can in beats

      • No tagging characters?

        Am I just missing it or can we not add tags to characters? We're doing worldbuilding in a Universe with eight different authors. This would be terrific if we could tag them just like elements.

        Or... I might just be an idiot.

          So all feedback to be voted on was only made with the re-written Storyshop in mind. Many of the things here have been made redundant with the new version.

          • Actually have Settings

            Actually make a "settings" tab or circle. The World Settings button is redundant if it only leads to character, outlines and elements. Elements aren't setting. Setting would include, maps, timelines, profiles for every setting in the story. Maybe make the World Settings button a World Details button and have four circles per world, because at this point all settings have to be lumped into elements and elements is useful for other things.

            • Provide Templates for Outlines

              This is another feature in the works - soon we'll have loadable genre-specific templates, plus custom ones for things like Hero's Journey.

              • Definitions, Titles, Mouseover Function

                A mouseover function that provides info (or a brief explanation) for categories/titles/objects would be very helpful... or simply have the definition come after the category/title (see pic 1]) or next to the object (see pic 2). I bring this up because I don't remember what type of things are to be in the ELEMENTS section. And when in World Settings, I don't remember what the Purple, Green, and Teal circles are for. So I automatically mouseovered them to see what they were for, expecting popup text to provide info, but there was none. Obviously, at this point, I figured it…

                • Give us a larger, visible photo area for the character photo

                  While I like the circular bubble for the character photo, I'd rather have a larger, visible area to display the character photo. A lot of the white space throughout seems a bit wasted, to be honest. Perhaps a 200 x 300 pixel area for the photo would work.

                  • Beats

                    In the original kickstarter video, the sections described (settings, characters and beats) made a bit more sense to me than the elements, outlines and characters. I have to assume that beats is what will end up being elements or outlines (I'm still not able to create anything in those, so I don't know if they're in there).

                    • World Settings Labels

                      The World Settings page currently holds three circles, which show the number of items inside whatever page they link to. I suggest labeling these circles, as currently you can't see what they represent without first following the link

                      • Concentrate on functionality of existing aspects before adding new ones.

                        Adding images is a great idea. So far I have not been able to add a photo image for the character or the optional header.
                        Sometimes I can add a character, sometimes not.
                        Yet to be able to add an outline.
                        I would prefer making these functionalities work over labeling circles, etc. or adding new stuff.
                        Making what is there work seamlessly, eliminating 5+ failed attempts would make this app awesome. Getting stuck on adding a basic in time consumption makes me return to my jerry-rigged Scrivener, mindmap, Google docs, etc. work now to get stuff done.
                        For now, I'm…

                          Thank you for this feedback. As this post contains several distinct issues, many of which were related to our system-wide outages and have been resolved, we are marking this idea closed.

                          That said, we absolutely agree that the core functionality as presented must be polished and delightful to use before we move on to adding new features. Though we take the number of votes on an idea into consideration, there are a large number of factors in-house determining how we set priorities – and the top priority to just to iron the kinks out of what we have. For example, we won’t even begin to think about how we’re going to approach Timelines until basic things like login, adding / editing / archiving items, smooth image uploads, functionality across desktop / tablet / mobile, etc are all much smoother than their current state.

                          If there are any issues mentioned in…

                        • Just a use I found for Planner to develop a course.

                          Entered a course I have been planning as a world, the planning documents as elements, and thinking that the promo items could go in as characters, because of the ability to add images, So far, it works stunningly well. Love it!
