Quite by accident, I hit Ctrl-P while using the new RTE when I meant to hit Shift-P the other day, and a miraculous feature popped up: an option to export my page into an offline format! Maybe I just wasn't paying attention, but I don't recall this being available before the update.
The format options are PDF, OneNote, or printing a hard copy. (Fax is also an option, although I can't imagine why.)
I have been backing up my finished stories in OneNote anyway, so I got excited when I saw this feature. However, there are some key limitations:
From what I understand, the new RTE is some kind of module that 3J and company installed in the existing CYS framework, and wasn't something that was coded from scratch. If so, then I assume that module includes options that a programmer can select / unselect to add or remove features as needed.
With that assumption in mind, I think it would be awesome if this export feature could be expanded to accomplish the following:
This would allow me to back up my story game just before I publish it, saving me from having to copy and paste each page one at a time.
But if this would involve many hours of tedious HTML coding, then even I'll admit it's not worth the effort.
So yes, I'm using Chrome, and when I click Ctrl-P on any random page I get the exact same set of options. So my bubble has been burst.
I have been looking for a way to do this too. In TWINE, there is a way to export your entire project as a standalone .html file. This would be a very useful feature to develop.
The story I'm working on is pretty basic; it's just a conversation simulator for ESL learners. Do you have access to that Python script? That would really help me out.
Thanks for the info!
Ok, that makes sense I suppose. Thanks!
