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".

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.

  1. Google chrome extension

    Integrate the app with Google Chrome browser, possibly with an extension. So that when the user finds something interesting over a web article and love to save the concerned text they would be able to copy and paste it in Writer app itself. Or clicking on the Writer app extension in the browser will directly copy-paste the text content in a file.

  2. (Inline) Comments

    Personally, whether I write or reread, I find myself adding comments to the text all the time. So I'd like to have this ability here.
    It could start very simple. For instance, in WriteMonkey (that uses Markdown/Textile as well) any paragraph that starts with a double slash is a comment. It has different color and doesn't add to the word count.
    Scrivener has something called annotations that doesn't add to the word count as well.
    Of course, you could also go further. You could (optionally) show comments to the right from the text (a bit like, say, here: http://tsi.github.io/inlineDisqussions/ ),…

  3. Syntax control

    Syntax Control scans English, French, German, Italian, and others, and highlights your adjectives, nouns, adverbs, verbs, prepositions, or conjunctions.

    planned  ·  Write! Support Team responded

    We are planning to implement the built-in Wordpress synchronization later. However, starting from Write! Beta 8, you’ll be able to open any Write! document in markdown syntax in another tab, and copy md contents from there.

  5. Tabs stacking

    It would be nice to be able to stack tabs into groups. When I have many tabs, I don't see full captions of them, tabs stacking would be a nice way to solve this

  6. Fix to make indented code blocks fixed-width in Markdown

    In proper Markdown, indented blocks (by <Tab> or 4 <Space>s) are expected to be interpreted as HTML <pre> blocks, and thus fixed-width. In Write!, they don't seem so (only text between `` backticks becomes fixed-width). I'm using v1.0b7.8-1502050

  7. Being able to choose add-ons.

    With all the updates you will be bringing it would be cool if we had the option to install only the things we wanted.

    For example I may want to add the ability to add maths symbols to my Write! but I may not want other features such as other languages or having a whole list of fonts that I don't use. However other uses might want more fonts and might not want symbols so they could choose only to install fonts.

    I think this would help to keep the UI clean and help save disk space and computer resources.

  8. Adding maths and medias support

    Hi ! I though adding a maths support ( to write maths studies ) can be pretty cool by the fact of write will be one of few softwares which accept these but the software which accept these with the best text editor UI and the easiest.

    Then, a simple media supprot is needed, as exemple : we can export documents to .odt but just type text with defined sizes and color, medias and framing gesture will perfect this soft

    best regards, jean ung

  9. Image embedding

    Image embedding. I frequently use illustrations in my texts, and being able to do it in Write! without having to use another software would be really convenient.

  10. Add option to remove tray icon

    Add option to remove tray icon. It really irritates when the icon pops up everytime I close Write.

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

  14. linked documents

    Linking documents - Assuming one is working on a draft of a book instead of keeping several files in a folder there has to be a method in linking a series of .xyz doc files together. so when primary document is pulled up a whole series in the set say chapters one through five opens up as tabs.

  15. 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…

  16. Autocomplete quotes

    Much like how you can autocomplete single/double quotes and braces in programming tools, a quote autocomplete feature here would be extremely useful. Especially for folks who intend to use this for writing scripts where you use use quotes a lot (and that would be my primary use as well).

    The desired behavior would be such that when you type a single/double quote, it automatically writes the second one and puts the cursor inbetween the two.

  17. Add A Todo Pane

    When writing most people create todo lists and tick them off one-by-one. Can I suggest a pop out pane on the right hand side which appears when the cursor is placed over it, no clicking needed. Also to make the list items drag-and-drop so no retyping is required should the text be complete. Dragging the item would also place a tick to show it has been done. Users can always unclick if they are not finished with that item. I hope that makes sense. No other editor has such a feature, or so believe.

  18. Live preview Option... please!

    Hi,

    As you can use Write! to do Markup it would be nice to have a Live Preview option to see how it is displaying. Check out the Brackets Editor Live Preview Extension here: https://github.com/gruehle/MarkdownPreview for some ideas how to get it working. Live preview for all work would be better. ;-)

  19. Glyph replacements

    We will consider implementing this, but as for now it is not in our primary priority.
