I cannot use this app. I looked for settings to begin writing and it doesn't exist. I should have read the reviews first. Micro soft you continue to amaze me with your lack of oversight. Time to buy an Apple.

I like the structure of "Projects" organizing but really don"t like the fact that I can't change fonts (or don't know how to) and I can not print any of the subject matter that I wrote. Also having trouble with mailing but that may be my computers problem. Would not recommend.

I'm using this app to create several outlines for a story I am writing, and I am seriously considering using it to write the entire manuscript. I love the graphical approach to outlining a story, and I love how simple this app is to use. I'm writing on an HP Stream and I bought this app with the available $25 Windows Store credit. This app runs great on a budget laptop, and I will continue to use the app until I can find a good reason to use Word instead. A simple right-click will give me options to rename various titles I assigned to groups or sections, and the settings bar on the right has some functionality. I don't use a touchscreen laptop and I still find this app a delight to use. I can also reassign notes I created to different sections which is very helpful for an outline since ideas tend to evolve.

My main complaint is I can't seem to delete a section once it's made and that's really frustrating

The organization on this app is very nice, it helps to see everything that I've written laid out in front of me. I write novels and while it helps with the organization it lacks some of the basic functions like Tab, Fonts, a lot of spellcheck functions, etc. It's really better for organizing homework, articles, etc. Not so much for fiction writers. I switched to Novel Writer and it suites my needs much more.

The formatting of the text has far too little control. Tab does not work, so paragraphs are hard to separate. Fonts are not changeable and I much prefer working in Courier. On the plus side the groups and sections make outlining fairly easy. My suggestion is to make cards in one project available in another. I would like to have character notes as a project and accessible while constructing the story.

The app serves the purpose well though soon I would love to see the ability to create subsections say under the chapters and the ability to create tags.

its good but my question is is it private?

Great app but Tab button support is a must for writers, at least those who are serious about writhing. It isn't a deal breaker but would be nice in an update.
