  • I love Manuskript. It’s full of all the features I ever wanted from a free writing software.

    I’m having a small problem: I’m using Windows 10 to run the software, and for the most part it’s fine, but the World tab is rather difficult to use. Most particularly, I’m incapable of being able to reorganize individual items, which I feel should be standard for just about every outliner.

  • Thanks for the update. Used for a day, however the next day (now), Manuskript does not load at all. The CMD window comes up and does a few things, but exits before I can read why the program won’t load. Reverted back to v0.5.0 and that does not load either. I’ve also tried loading a different set of the same files (for each version) in case it was a settings issue. Just to make sure I’m using the download files correctly, what I do is download the Windows package (using Win8.1) and copy the files to my Programs (x86) folder.

  • I’m really anxious to try this product. It seems exactly like what I’m looking for. However, I went to download it and can’t find the manuskript folder referenced in this portion of the instructions for Mac installations : “In the newly created manuskript folder find the file named manuskript and double-click on it…” Where would this folder be located? I’m running macOS Sierra vs 10.12.6.

    • When the file is unzipped, the contents will be extracted into a folder named manuskript. Usually this manuskript folder will be in the same directory that contains the zip file, but can be moved to a different location if desired.

      ‘Hope that helps.

  • I feel kind of behind now. I’m still running 3.0 and I love it. *clings to old version* I’m not going to lose everything if I decide to upgrade, right? I only ask because I have a ton of stuff and there are a few bugs I have to tiptoe around (I realize you don’t do support for older versions, so that’s why I ask).

    • We recommend you make a backup of your manuskript project(s) first. Older file formats *should* load and be updated to work with newer Manuskript versions.
