The new importing feature

I just noticed the article here How do I import to Dabble? | Dabble Help Center (dabblewriter.com) regarding importing to Dabble.

I tried using this in an effort to make a duplicate copy of a project so that I could remove parts of it. Part of it ended up being a tutorial I want to separate into a different file.

So, I exported it to Word, then tried importing it. It exported with the hashtags separated the scenes, like the article said is needed, but when I imported it, it didn’t recognize the hash tags and turned into one long page.

Has anyone else been able to do this?

I absolutely love Dabble, by the way. I haven’t used it for a while due to my cancer journey and not writing for a period of time. I’m enjoying using it again.

It works but it’s tempermental I’ve found.

It has to be the first scene. And it has to be in an exact format.

Here are the forum notes on it:

The example works when you paste into Chapter title field, and if you paste into the scene it came out a little strange, but still split everything up.

I have made some improvements to the Import on Paste feature which will be out shortly.
