What is Writing Type?

Writing Type is the best writing and organization tool for authors, bloggers, poets, and other writers on Windows 8!

How can I export my project out of the app?

The easiest way to export your project is to use the Windows 8 “Share” charm using the following steps:

  1. Open your project so that you can see all of your sections
  2. Move your mouse to the top-right corner of your computer screen and hold it there for a second until the charms appear along the right side
  3. The second icon from the top is called the “Share Charm”. Click it.
  4. Apps that have the ability to accept text will now appear in a list
  5. Choose your preferred target app
  6. Every section of your project has now been copied over in the order of Group 1 – sections – Group 2 – sections in one singular document

Note: The Windows 8 app “Clipboard” is an excellent share solution to get your project over to a standard desktop app for additional processing. When selected from your Share charm it copies the project onto a virtual clipboard which allows you to paste it into an application like Microsoft Word on your desktop.
