  1. Comment/Note Feature

    A comment feature, like the one found in Google Docs, is something that is absolutely essential to me as a writer. It lets me get down my thoughts in a rough way in case I can't finish a section of a story or article in one go, allows me to propose possible revisions or questions as I write, and overall just gives me a convenient and on-hand space to keep my thoughts about whatever I'm writing. This is a must-have for me, and my continued use of this product (which is otherwise excellent) completely hinges on this feature.

  5. Lock the app

    Locking ability similar to Cold Turkey Writer.

    You can't close the program or change to another one unless you reach your goal (in terms of words or minutes).

  8. Export stats to csv file

    Current word and character stats are great, but I think for writers it would be useful to export those to a csv file to keep track of how many words exactly you've written everyday in a certain file/project, how many hours you've devoted to it, etc.

  11. Question marks or colon in the title

    In the title of the documents, we should be able to use question/exclamation marks or colon. Imagine all the people.

  13. Ability to change text size of preset styles until custom styles are implemented. Headers are WAY TOO BIG.

    Need to be able to change the text size in preset styles. "Extra small" is way too tiny, but every other preset is WAY TOO GIGANTIC. The H1 and H2 headers take up TONS of view space in most presets, I can barely see the text they're supposed to be organizing. Where's the middle ground!?

  14. Common Pairings ""[]{}()''<>

    It would be very useful if there was a setting that would turn on/off common parings of characters such as quotation marks, parenthesis,square and curly brackets and arrows. While keeping the cursor between the two characters after the par.
    Uses:
    - Script Writing
    - Code Examples
    - Quotes in Prose
    - Markdown

    It is very rare to have one of these characters without the other. And while I imagine that a few people prefer to type them out manually, I as a programmer am fairly used to having them auto completing and correcting the cases where they are not paired…

  15. Collapse Headers with Hierachy

    Thanks for a great program!
    I was positively surprised by many features, but the collapsible headers left me a little bit short.
    I was expecting them to collapse based on Hierarchy. I.e collapsing a H1. will collapse all text AND the H2.-H4.-headers within that Header, until next H1.-Header. In my mind, you don't need to nest or alter the dot and line graphic you have - it's nice as it is.

  18. RTL Preset cursor should be at the right

    If RTL is defined as default which means in "Text style Presets" window, Hebrew or Arabic is defined as default preset (the small d above the preset name), than the cursor and the header folding dots should be aligned to the right.

    At the moment the cursor is aligned to the left, and when you start typing it goes to the right.

    Please notice that when you start typing a list, the number at first appears to the left and when you proceed typing than it jumps to the right, it should be aligned to the right from the very…
