For those who want to use Write's Cloud feature, it would be great if there was an automated, instantaneous replica of it in a given folder on the user's hard drive. Or, put another way, the user dedicates a local folder for his writings, and this folder is instantaneously synced to your cloud.
Right now I don't use the cloud feature because it makes me nervous not to have a local copy that I can make my own backups of.102 votes
The outline feature within the document tree is nice, but it seems to be only available if you use the cloud. Please add this function also to locally saved files.
Thanks for looking into this.1 vote
Mark search results also in the preview or in the right scroll bar.
Searching for a string highlights results in the text. But for longer documents it would be incredibly helpful if there was a visual hint, where else in the document there are hits.1 vote
I write in two different languages. Since I'm writing both in English and in Greek, I translate every article from Greek to English. This means that I have to copy - paste the whole text into Google Translate every time.
What would be a lifesaver for me would be to be able to translate a whole article (via right click) and instead of opening Google Translate, it should open a new document with the translated text. It should keep the formatting settings as well.

It's nice that Write supports publishing to a WordPress site. However, I currently write in 3 different WP sites, so it would be awesome to have the option to select in which website I'm going to publish each document.
Please consider adding multiple account support for more WP sites.1 vote
Possibility to add simple tables. This could be done with wiki or textile markup. I really do miss this functionality, as I often like to use tables to structure some information.
E.g. Textile markup:
|_. First Header |_. Second Header |
|Content Cell |Content Cell |
|Content Cell |Content Cell |22 votes
Apply a Text Style to...
*a whole session
*a folder containing multiple documents.
So far, I am having to apply the text styles and zoom in for larger text on each separate file. So far, adjusting text styles is time-consuming.
In Word, Zoho Writer, and others, text styles are automatic across an entire document.
Please help, thank you!2 votes
I noticed on a mac that right click is not very smooth, and usually does not activate- especially for the Context menu.
Please fix.4 votes
Easy way to move paragraphs around and insert new paragraphs between them. Like an outliner except for writing, not for note taking! (although it could be used for to-do lists and outlining) A good example of this is Checkvist and UV Outliner. Using just keyboard you can add, shuffle, remove, and rearrange whatever you are writing (and since everything is a tree hierarchy moving a whole chapter around would be easy).
This is an amazing feature I wish Write would have, otherwise it is pretty perfect.22 votes

When copying and pasting text from Write to Google Docs, Docs doesn't seem to respect paragraphs or line breaks. Is there anything you can do to make it respect those line breaks?2 votes

I make on file or document per chapter, exporting or printing each chapter can be incredibly cumbersome. I think this would be an excellent feature.1 vote
Regex support when searching through text would be amazing. Just a small icon toggle inside of the "find" field for "interpret the search query as regex syntax" would make my work a lot easier.
Similarly, you'd then be able to use the replace feature with regex backreferences to do something like [replace text with what you searched for, plus something extra].

It would be nice to use this app as a way to publish to Tumblr, since they support Markup.3 votes
Latex and Table Support. This way Write! would be extraordinally good for processing scientific text, because it already has easy and great text processing, it only lacks ways to post scientific data natively.1 vote
