When I export scenes and open in Word they are fine. When I export the manuscript the font is grey and nearly too dim to read. I have tried every adjustment I can find in word but apparently it's the way the file is exported. What can I do to fix this since I always do final revisions in hard copy?

Hi Chandler, Many thanks for your message. That doesn't sound right, and I've just tested it on my machine and it doesn't seem to be doing that. Could you please email us at info@novel-software.com so we can help investigate further? If you could send us your exported Word doc and also the novel file, we can see if we can recreate the problem.

Hi Chandler,
Thanks for sending this over - yes I can see the difference - I believe it's just because the exports use different fonts and the default one is a little paler. However, you can select a different font in which to export your manuscript. When you go to export your manuscript, you should find there are options to change the font, among other things. Can you try using Arial Black and see if that helps?

That's the thing. Export gives me no options. I click export and it asks where. That's it.

Ah, apologies, I was referring to the Online version, I forgot we were talking about the Desktop version.

In Word, if you select all the text, then right click somewhere on the selection to get the small edit popup, you should be able to choose Arial Black, or other darker font than the default one. Can you try that and let me know if it helps?

I've done that. I even opened scenes and ms in the same window side by side to make sure all settings were the same.

Hi there, we are able to change the font setting in the Word document to Arial Black so the font is very bold and clear, and easy to read. Are you saying that when you make that change on the Word doc the text is still too pale for you to work with?

I'm saying that select all and then changing fonts does change the font but not the darkness. The scene file is dark. The ms file remains grayed.

I see - when I change the font it does change it to the same darkness as the other one - I'll try that here then email you the result to see what you think...
