UPDATE: A Better Mobile Experience for the Writer Portal

So is it just me or is it something that it doesn’t do… the previewer works as shown in video but it doesn’t play the sounds even tho the little volume bar is all the way up and my phone sound is all the way up… and yeah like people mentioned, you scroll though the script and you’re constantly tapping a line or code or something and it zooms in with the cursor ready to type.
BUT I AM SUPER PUMPED!!!
Just one other thing that I noticed wasn’t on the list of changes and am wondering if it could be for the future is, the characters aren’t scrollable within their box like on a computer (characters, outfits and art catalog animations menus). I’d love to be able to able to scroll the character around to preview the whole image when you have the character zoomed in on the characters and outfit menus and then be able to move the character animation around so you can see the whole animation.

@darryl_daddy that sucks :cry: but perhaps is an instance of “it’s not going to work perfectly for everyone” because mine is super fast loading everything. Loads the animations like lighting. Also my left swipe pops up right away with no refreshing. I do have the problem with the touchy zoom in… but we’re you able to scroll down through your whole script before? I was always only able to see as much of my script that fit in the webpage. I couldn’t scroll down to the end like I can now.

I prefer my laptop but this is really useful when I can’t get WIFI.
Actually, this monday I thought that the Writer Portal was working better than it used to be on my phone, but didn’t put too much thought into it.

So thanks a lot for this update :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Yeah, I’d like that too. It would be good if they added the possibility to copy & paste on mobile. I need that, I’m a total clutz and messed up the order of some episodes (when I used Mobile Creator)

I really like the concept of this because there are so many times I want to look at my script on my mobile device, however when I go into a script, it automatically zooms it in to where only 5-6 line spaces are visible and any time I try to zoom out, it zooms RIGHT back in.

Hey All! Glad to hear this is a solution for so many of you who are constantly on the move.

If you’re experiencing issues, please try to list what kind of device you’re accessing the portal on! Knowing what’s happening can help us improve the mobile portal experience in the future.

@Melani3 I’m using IPhone XS version iOS 13.1.2

My only issue is when I try swipe for a different bar to come up it just keeps zooming back into the line I was previously typing on and same thing when I’m scrolling down on a script it zooms back onto where I was previously exiting. Then when I try zoom back out it just zooms back in again and I end up having to zoom using the blue navigation bar on the top since I couldn’t do it on the actual page

Again I’m not sure if it’s because it’s too sensitive or what but this is my only
Issue and if this could be fixed it would be awesome :blush::heart:

iPhone 8+ on the latest update.
The only issue I’m noticing is that there is no sound playing. :upside_down_face::pleading_face:

Annnd it’ll definitely be nice if we had this option as it’s easy to swipe back to the home screen. (If I’m not swiping left in the middle of the screen if that makes sense.):sweat_smile:

Maybe it’s old so that’s why it’s messed up lol.
