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".

  1. Having the ability to automatically have a replica on your hard drive of what's in the cloud

    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.

  2. Outline view also for local files

    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.

  3. Mark search results in the text preview or scroll bars

    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.

  4. Translate documents within the application

    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.

    What do you think?

  5. Publish to multiple WordPress websites

    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.

  6. Support for tables

    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 |

  7. Consistent Text Styles

    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!

  8. Fix right click on mac

    I noticed on a mac that right click is not very smooth, and usually does not activate- especially for the Context menu.

    Please fix.

  9. Easy tools for story/article rearranging

    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.

  10. Use a Smarter Dictionary

    The dictionary being used doesn't know many academic words. Could you use the New Oxford version? That has been sufficient for my writing needs.

  13. Create a Discussion Group for Write! Users to Exchange Ideas, Tips, Etc

    Slack might be a good option, or Google Groups, or maybe an in-house discussion group.

  15. Line breaks in Google Docs

    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?

    Type [toc] in markdown to have a table of contents created. The table has internal links to the headings in the document.

  17. export multiple tabs/files

    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.

  18. Regular expression support for find/replace

    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].

    ex.,
    Find: ([fF])oo
    Replace with: $0abulous

    foo -> fabulous, Foo -> Fabulous

    It would be nice to use this app as a way to publish to Tumblr, since they support Markup.

  20. Latex and Tables

    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.
