Today we’ve got several updates which will help make writing stories faster and easier!
Automated Character Creation
Creating characters can take a lot of time, especially when you want to create a lot of unique looking background characters.
Now, you can create characters without having to leave your script! Just add and save your script with any new characters that have not yet been created and you’ll see our automated character creator pop-up.
If you choose the “Randomizer”, then you will then get a bunch of really awesome unique characters like these created for you instantly (don’t worry – if you don’t like the characters you get initially, you can retry each character until they’re just right! ).
If you choose the “Stock Characters”, those will be based on the templates you see when you go to the character editor to create a new character.
If you just misspelled a name, use the Skip function! This will leave your error as is, and let you correct it after the script finishes saving.
Note that this currently works for Ink and Limelight; because Classic is an older and different tech than our newer styles, we unfortunately ran into a lot of complications trying to get it to work.
Continue Writing WHILE Saving
Waiting for your script to save before you can keep working used to take a lot of time but now you can continue to edit while your script saves!
We’ve also added a shortcut so you can save and preview without having to move your mouse! Just click “cmd/ctrl + Shift + S” in the script editor and your script will save and load a preview.
Web Previewer Update
And last but not least, we have updated the Web Previewer so you can now view the gem choice for your stories without needing to use a device.
You may have also noticed that the Web Previewer now has volume controls!
So you can now adjust the volume or even mute your preview.
Larger Scripts: now LIVE to everyone!
In our last post we mentioned rolling out a system to allow you to save longer scripts. Well, that is now live to everyone!
We’re excited to get these released to you and would love to hear your thoughts below.
