Auteureist™ Quick Start

Auteureist™ can be a bit overwhelming at first. This page is meant to get you writing your first project.
First, some basic definitions:

  • Project: A novel, script, poem, etc. that you create.
  • Element: In a novel, an element is a chapter, in a script it is a scene, etc.
Launch Auteureist™ on your iPhone. The first screen you will see is the main Writing Screen.

The main area is where you write. Just tap to bring up the keyboard.
At the top of the screen are the main controls.

  • Menu button - brings up the main menu
  • Progress bar - tracks your progress. The color of the bar indicates a percentage to your target, which can be set at the Element level. This progress bar is only visible if you have set a target word or page count for this element (chapter, scene, etc.)
  • Lock button - This button is displayed when an element or project is marked as done. This button is not displayed when the Element you are working on is considered In Progress.
  • Accessory tool bars - give you easy access to various functions.
Those are the basics.

There is more to learn and discover. Browse the documentation here to learn more. Also, each screen has a help button (the "?") which will bring you to the information relevant to the screen.
