What's New

Version 4.0:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.13 or later

  • Dark Mode on Mojave-Storyist 4 for macOS sports a beautiful new content-aware dark mode when running on Mojave. Many apps only support dark mode when your Mac is in dark mode, but Storyist 4 takes it a step further. Dark mode is available even if your Mac is running with the Light appearance and you can choose either dark text on a light background or light text on a dark background.
  • Quick Navigation-Getting around your project has never been easier. You can use the new Go To command to get to any project view with a few keystrokes.
  • Enhanced PDF Export-Sometimes you just need to make a PDF from several files in your project. Storyist 4 lets you quickly assemble and export a PDF without needing to create a book. This is useful for adding a title page to a manuscript or for assembling a couple chapters to send to your critique group.
  • And More-Storyist 4 comes with many other enhancements, including an updated outliner, a more flexible full screen view, and animation, performance and usability improvements.


  • OS X 10.13 or later
