Uploading finished novel

Hi,

Is it possible to upload a finished novel or short story to SmartEdit? If yes, is the program able to arrange the novel in chapters?

There are Import Document and Import from Folder Options in the Actions & Tools menu, but a single document will be imported as one scene. It doesn’t split out the chapters.
If you have multiple documents in a folder, those are imported as one scene per document.

Thanks, My understanding is that a completed novel will have to be uploaded chapter by chapter to the SmartEdit Writer?

Well, as I said, it would depend on how you have saved the full novel. If you have it in a single document, just import it as one scene, then you can split it out from within SEW. Doesn’t really take that long.
If the chapters are separate files, then SEW will import each chapter as a separate scene using the Import Folder option.
