Where are you in the writing process?

Papyrus Author: Because Your Text Matters.

The most important thing about a word processor is writing: We know by experience what modern authors need. You have a document with thousands of pages? No problem.

We also make sure that Papyrus remains easy to use. All special functions are optional, to keep your writing as comfortable as possible. Papyrus Author pioneers in text improvement. Our secret for good software development: the closeness to our writing customers.

Research and Character Databases Manage Your Background Info.

Simply drag text and images from your internet browser into your document to store it. Metadata such as access time and internet source are automatically saved, for you to prove sources even years later.

Use the Character Database to develop and control the characters of your story. Papyrus automatically links every text passage where your characters appear. How often does this side character actually show up in the text? Did he have blue or green eyes? Double-clicking on the name will reveal the answer.

Plot Your Ideas with the Thinkboard.

Every writer needs a structure that unites their ideas, characters and places in such a way that a coherent story can grow from it. Papyrus Author offers you the Thinkboard. Here, you place your ideas and connect, move and group them freely until they result in your perfect story. It replaces your bulletin board, mind map and the pile of notes on your desk.

Best of all, when you decide which parts will make up your story, you can drag them directly into your text to form the first chapter building blocks.

Keep Your Story Under Control with the Navigator and Organizer.

The Navigator is the live overview of your book structure. You will never lose track of the chapters, scenes and events of your story again. In the Navigator you can unfold and collapse your story elements, change the hierarchy of your story and display text statistics.

The Organizer goes one step further. Here you get the in-depth view of your project. Plan and create new sections, write summaries and comments, arrange your acting characters, assign story lines and times and much more.

The Style Analysis is Your Built-In Editor.

Writing is not only art, but also craftsmanship. Every author has their own style of writing. Nevertheless, there are stylistic missteps that should better be avoided. The Papyrus Style Analysis highlights these text passages. It works similarly to a spell checker, but does not point out objective mistakes, but rather possible stylistic weaknesses and offers pointers for improvement.

Filler words, word repetitions, too long sentences–a second pair of eyes helps you write better. The Style Analysis makes suggestions. The author decides.

Create Finished E-Books and Print-Ready PDFs for Your Publication.

Where do you want to publish? With Papyrus, you create your finished book, just the way you need it for self-publishing, or for your publishing house.
