This release focuses on the new features and bug fixes. Henceforth this version will be known as the version that shall not be named and I will never speak of it again.
Listed below are the new features, changes and bug fixes made to Quoll Writer in version 2.1.
Notes, scenes and plot outline items can now be dragged and moved within the chapter. I'm currently working on moving them between chapters, bear with me, Java's drag-n-drop support is a pain to work with.
It is now possible to split a chapter at either an arbitrary point in the text or by selecting some of the text. Just right click on the chapter and select split chapter.
An option has been added to allow the right click chapter menu to be compressed (visually).
An option has been added to show notes for a chapter in the chapter list.
The names of objects, such as Chapter, Note, Character and so on can now be customized to your needs.
You can now set an edit position in the text of a chapter that will then visually indicate where you are up to when editing. An icon will be displayed against the chapter in the chapter list to indicate that you partially way through editing.
Additionally to the edit position marker you can mark a chapter as edit complete meaning that you have finished editing it.
There is now a rule that checks paragraph length and/or number of sentences. Also a rule for a rudimentary measure of sentence complexity (syllables vs word count) has been added.
If one or more chapters has an edit position or has been marked edit complete then the word count panel will show the total amount edited. Similarly for the current chapter if either is set then the amount edited will be displayed.
As above. A menu will be shown for adding a new note, scene or plot outline item.
