Is there an online / cloud based version?
In very exciting news, we have just begun work on an online version of the Novel Factory, which is expected to be ready for beta testing towards the end of this year (2016) and launching in full in early 2017. This will make the software available to Mac users, as well as Chromebook users, as well as users on any platform who want to use it on the move.

Can I import a book I've already written in a different program?
Yes, you can import your existing manuscript into the Novel Factory from a Word, Richtext, OpenOffice or HTML document. By using delimiters, the Novel Factory can automatically split your novel into scenes, and even associate characters and locations with each scene.
What if I use the trial then decide I don’t like it – will my work be lost?
Nope. You can export all your work to a Word or Richtext document.
Does it work on Windows 10?
Do I need to be connected to the Internet to use it?
You need to be connected to the Internet to download the software, and to activate it, but you don’t need a constant connection in order to run it.
