I would like to have more formatting options to center text and have more control over the output of my manuscript.
I would like to know more about this, what the formatting is for. This can help to make a better feature rather than re-creating Word in the browser (Google already did that).
I'm not the person who submitted this, but personally I would use centered text for something like a poem or song that was being quoted in a story.
OK, it might have been me... Let's see: from the top of my head, Word features I use when I'm writing: quotes/poems with left indentation; text with left and right indentation; simple align right; italics; centring; different font sizes; bold; pagination; page numbers; double spacing (industry standard); copy/paste/cut; [docs merge; in docs annotation, though these may go under editing features]. There might be more. Oh, & by the way, Google did only 1/2 a job of replicating Word...
I don't expect this to have the functionality of MS word (as I know this does not have a huge dev team and you can't implement everything), but a few more customization options would be great. Underlining and strike-through text, center/right-aligned text, formats for the chapter titles (allowing us to give subtitles or turn parts of the options off); optional page numbers corresponding w/common paper sizes...
Bullet points for outlining would be SO helpful.
I would like the option to single space the manuscript. It's distracting for me that I can't change it.
I'd at least like the ability to use bold and/or italic text, or maybe even just different colors of text. My reason for this is because I primarily use Dabble to create scripts for narrative-focused PC games. As such, having additional formatting options would make it easier for me to differentiate between dialog and narration, between different logical paths, etc.
definitely gotta agree with adding strike through, page numbers, and different font sizes
Definitely needs centered texts
Bold and italic text and I agree, the option to single or double space.
Some Non-Fiction features would be awesome! Like...1. Footnotes or Endnotes2. Markdown support in "Manuscript" area like the "Story Notes" section. Headings would be great, as non-fiction texts can have several sections within a chapter.Thanks for asking!!
My 2 cents: In order to use Dabble for my Non-fiction work, I would need to be able to:Underline (ctrl U does NOT work for that), indent, bullet point, make footnotes(way complicated, so I can probably work around this one), copy/paste with & without formatting, paste graphs and lists from excel. I know that some of these already are there and I just don't know how to use them. Underline would be fantastic though.
Agree with bullet points for story plotting, underlining, and centered text for subtitles and such. Or even just the option to add subtitles to a chapter. My book has the perspectives of 5 different characters so I'd like to put the name of whichever character is at the forefront of that chapter in a more prominent place other than in the chapter title or just at the beginning of the text.
Agree with above, and I really need smaller margins. What's up with all the white space?
I would also love the ability to center, right align, and justify text. I include an about the author page at the end of every book, and being able to center it in Dabble would be incredibly helpful.

This is a crucial option for those of us hoping to maximize our workflow using Dabble. By the time we export, even if it's only for revision or initial edits, we want to be doing just that: revising, editing, or tweaking. I'm unable to keep the indent out of each chapter's first sentence. I can't center a block quote, or add a centered subtitle beneath the Chapter number, i.e. for excerpts of journal entries, etc. All crucial things I don't want to have to comb through my ms to readdress.
I just want the ability to highlight text, as an easy way for me to identify placeholders when I go back to edit. Dabble doesn't need all the fancy formatting stuff because it's not a word processor - you should always export to Word or Vellum or something else for that. Dabble is meant for DRAFTING, and I love it as is. But the ability to highlight text in yellow or pink or some other bright color (we don't need options, just give us a simple highlighter) would be really handy.
Italics, bold, and text orientation (left, center, right) are all features I would be happy to have. While I don't personally think I would use it, I second that it makes sense to be able to easily format scene cards to do bullets. Though, to be fair, that's also pretty easy to do a simple equivalent of yourself with (-)'s
If you're working a novel, indenting of paragraphs is needed. Some paragraphs don't need indenting, such as the first one in each chapter. So the ability to choose to indent or not indent is needed. Also how much of an indent. 3-5 spaces are my chosen range. Change in font is necessary, too. Most publishers will not work with certain fonts. Times New Roman is the default, but Courier can be an option, too. Thank you for the Bold or Italics, though. Always a plus. :)
I would like to see strikethrough and highlighting options added.

I would love italics, maybe different font choices as there's no way to change them, bolded fonts, underlined possibly. But the big one for me is being able to change my font. I will wait to use dabble until these features are implemented.
It would be very useful to have an option to turn off paragraph indents and to be able to skip lines in the app without it adding a second line skip when exporting to a document. Right now I'm having to manually format it after exporting, which is irritating, and there is no way to turn off paragraph indents.

I would like the ability to use different font sizes in my project.
Being forced to use double spacing immediately turned me off, followed by the auto-indentation at the start of paragraphs (which isn't a *huge* problem but I prefer having some control).
I know that the app is trying to keep a very minimalist setup when writing but if you do the thing some apps do where you have to highlight the text and then a small toolbar menu of bold, underline, italics, strikethrough, bullet list, numbered list, right oriented text, centered text, left oriented text. That's really all that's needed for most things and would be SO useful. I just started using this and was immediately turned off at the lack of formatting.
Was very excited about all Dabble offers & eagerly pasted in a chapter from my current project. Saw it looked awful (IMO) because sans-serif fonts, single spacing, no indent, & justification are easier on my eyes. Shocked to see the inflexibility & lack of ANY options. For real? Ongoing subscription fees instead of Scrivener's one-time purchase, & I can't even make it look comfortable? NO THNX. You lost me before you even had me. Glad I did the trial instead of launching into the sub right away.
I'd be happy to be able to underline text.
A formatting toolbar of some kind that stays put and doesn't immediately fade out; but, has the ability to be closed, would be really appreciated. :/
I’d love to see page breaks.
I am new to Dabble, and maybe I am missing something but I would love to see page breaks per Diane's comment. I am migrating from Google Docs, which provides a visual break between pages in the UI and allows for hard page breaks (Ctrl + Enter). I am currently querying my manuscript, and this would help with preparing "first X pages" submissions and that sort of thing. I have another feature request in for a more comprehensive query prep tool, but as a stopgap page breaks would be wonderful.
I won't even consider buying it without minimal formatting options. MUST HAVES: italics, bold, font color, centering, font size, ability to single space.
I want to able to use the tab button to make my paragraphs look better
Footnotes and endnotes would be awesome to write more nonfiction pieces. Underlining, Colors, Highlighting, Single space, double spacing.
