    No mallow, not at all. I tried to test with my ongoing manuscripts but waste too much time for sure. Improper citations, bibliography issues, unexpectedly quits, incomplete author details etc... etc... So I am a "good" beta tester but that's all unfortunately. I know Mathias's team are trying to do their best and I really want to help and support their project but it is too fuzzy and going in every directions missing some crucial points, with the unpleasant feeling of not being heard.

    And please stop developing new features that's useless if the core of the software is so instable that it will compromise all further development. Urgently, fix what's required, what your beta users are reporting. Pause all new development before it is too late. Work hard as hell, don't give up on it, never, take a couple of months off the radar just to fix everything and maybe rethink or rewrite basic code. Look at Pages and Word carefully because these are the references. Good luck, it is on the tracks. And for God sake stop selling your software as it is a brand new stable. You are only creating frustration of user and that's the worst you can do. Make it awesome we re standing by you. Good luck

    I'm sorry to support the thread but the fact is that Manuscript is still an early beta. Nothing is really working as should do. I drop Manuscript to use Word instead and i feel really sorry for that, cause I do like the concept. But Mathias it feels like you are the only one developper in here or maybe you should think about firing 90% of your team. Sorry, that's mean but you own a company and I am afraid if you re not able to drastically improve the overall stability, fix some simple issues, basic copy/paste drag and drop, sections, bibliography then the good concept will translate into a really bad publicity, and everyone's gonna drop it. And that's a shame because really the concept is good, but be at least as good as a basic text editor!

    I would add a strange bug causing inappropriate reference list presentation. i don't know why but a return is inserted after each reference number in the reference list. In the proposed example template, I can't even see the bibliography. Sometimes I can't delete the citations inserted in the text, very inconsistent

    • Problems with right and left toggle buttons not resizing correctly the window

    • No autoselection of section in the left panel when starting to type in the main document

    • Inappropriate word count in section: wrong statement about the minimal requirement, and not counting as you type.

    In this "repository", I propose to incremental report bugs as you see them because for now Manuscript is a great app but still too buggy and we definitely need to help developers tracking and tackling bugs.

    Can you please add the button add new section (alone) when you added a subsection because it's only displaying: add a new subsection and add a new subsubsection but not the section alone. In other words it is only incremental in one way
