There's no better way of learning Storyist 2.0 than by using the Getting Started Document, which is a manuscript describing the details of many features of the software.
The Storyist user interface is quite easy to understand. Icons at the top of the page provide quick links to story elements, while the items at the left list the actual documents written.
Comments are a great way to add virtual sticky notes to your manuscript. When you're done typing, all that remains is a small icon. Click on it to view the comment.
One thing that is new to version 2.0 is the ability to see a split view. Here is a blank title page template on the left, while I have a scary character pinned to my cork board at the right.
For a specific style, you're not forced to stay with the degaults and can add your own typeface, size, and color.
If you forget to save your document, Storyist won't. You can set your autosave preferences here.
At the end of a paragraph, Storyist can automatically display a popup menu showing available styles.
And for the scriptwriters in the crowd, Storyist can automatically show completions for many of your script elements
Importing and exporting text is done through a plugin process. Storyist makes their import / export API available to developers who wish to add support.
