I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. With the new update, there is a lot of system lag in type response that I had not encountered before.

    I am just hoping for a further patch to see and adress the issue.

  3. Support Github Flavoured Markdown

    Currently there isn't any support for tables in markdown which GFM does. GFM is by far the best form of markdown.

  4. Write! Reader Companion App (Android, iOS)

    So much of writing happens as you are rereading and thinking about what you've already written. It is, therefore, a pity that in order to access your Write! files you need to be in front of a PC. It would be great if there was a reading companion app that would allow you to read the stuff that you have written on mobile devices.

    This way you could write your essay or article and then read it and think about ways to improve it on the train or anywhere else away from keyboard.

    Also, a reader app may be easier…

  6. Add option to transparently show the markup syntax but still retain the formatting in the editor

    I work with markdown, and I think it is super annoying that I have to do hotkeys to apply formatting. I want to type markdown, and have it format on the fly, while still showing the syntax. This is useful when I want to write comments or blog posts. I don't necessarily want a local copy of the file, I want to use Write! as a writing tool.

    I know this might go against your app philosophy (simplicity, markup independence, etc. which _really_ sets your app apart), so I'll accept some compromises.
    At least, you should enable a way to…

    Thank you for your suggestion, however we are not planning to translate the app in the nearest future.

  9. Folding and Sectioning

    Sections and Folding.

    Book counter (40000Characters) is funny, but in real writing process you dont write entire book in one line.

    You have a small chunks of text.
    Parts, chapters.

    Look at any good writing software - Ulysees, scrivener - they all have a more than a top-bottom navigation.

    If you try to make a notepad-killer than your app is just great.

    But if you have a ambition to make a good tool for writers - then you need to add something like a tree structure (maybe based on markdown structure.

    That can let you focus on small parts, and…

  13. Merge more than one documents and/or folders for export

    I think the ability to split and merge documents will greatly enhance the usability of Write!, which is already a wonderful program as it is. In cases where each document is meant to be a part of a bigger project, it is so inconvenient to have to export the documents one at a time and then combine them in another word processor. Please consider adding this very useful function in the future editions of Write!

  17. Google Docs Sync

    You should really consider having the ability for someone to be able to save into Google Docs. It's very helpful for me and my team to be able to share documents and your writing app is so much better than Google Docs'. If that's a possibility then I would be thrilled to see it in Write!

  20. Focus Mode per sentence

    I love the Focus Mode, but I often write long paragraphs, so that everything is in focus.

    My solution would be an advanced setting for the Focus Mode that allows the user to set it "per paragraph" or "per sentence", so that user who'd like that only see their current sentence in focus (Changing point would be the period at the end of the sentence).
