1000 Words FAQ

How do I save what I've written?

On reaching your word target (default 1000) the Save command will become available. Also, if you Quit 1000 Words you will be given a Save option.

Why is there no Open command?

1000 Words is not a text editor so it does not open saved documents. However, 1000 Words saves in plain text so you can easily open its saved documents in any other editor on your Macintosh such as TextEdit.

Why don't my cursor keys work?

The app is designed to encourage you to write and keep writing. Editing your text is a certain way to stop you writing so the cursor keys will not work until you have reached your word target.

Why can't I copy and paste?

The app is designed to encourage you to write and keep writing. Editing your text is a certain way to stop you writing so Copy will not work until you have reached your word target. The Paste function is not available.

Why has my backspace key stopped working?

1000 Words allows the deletion of five characters in succession but no more. The backspace key will not work again until you have written at least another five characters. This is to discourage editing and keep you writing regardless.

Will there be VoiceOver support?

Yes. I hope to include it in the next release.

Are there any release notes?

Yes. You can read them here.
