I'm so glad the app has been a help! I will look into adding more emoji options

Ah! That sounds really frustrating, sorry about that. It looks like a bug is causing the fonts to not delete. Please try the following steps:
1. Open StimuWrite. Go to Advanced Settings and click the red "Delete All" button. (This will delete all themes and recovery files and supposed to delete addons)
2. In your computer's file explorer, go to this folder:
3. Manually delete the addons folder
4. Open StimuWrite. Download and install the add-on again. Make sure to use the original file name.
Please let me know if that fixes the issue. I'm not sure what caused the bug, sorry about that.
Thank you so much for your support!
I may put together a theming guide and template soon and will let you know if I do! I wouldn’t attempt without one unless you love reverse-engineering things because it’s not straightforward.
Thank you! I will take into consideration about hiding the progress bar. As for still backgrounds, the video backgrounds have a “pause” button above the dropdown you can use to make them still :)
Oh no! I'm so sorry that happened. You could check to see if the recovery file has the words, but it's a bit of a long shot. You can find it here:
~/Library/Application</span> <span class="pre">Support/Godot/app_userdata/StimuWrite/stimuwrite_recover.txt
Also, if you find the app is crashing, please try turning off GPU particles. Click on the link at the bottom titled Options, then Advanced Settings > GPU particles. Toggle this to OFF. This feature causes crashing on some user's machines and will be disabled by default in future versions.
So unfortunately because StimuWrite was created with a game engine there are certain video cards it won't work with. I will look into creating a version that's backward compatible. In the meantime, there's an app called WriteRush on itch that is inspired by StimuWrite and should work on any graphics card that you could check out.
Yes, unfortunately, due to technical limitations of the engine alt codes currently don't work. May I ask what special characters you use? There's an option to turn double dashes into em dashes, maybe I could implement something similar for other ones.
Very cool! I can look into creating a theming guide and template, but for sounds and add-ons there's currently no way for me to enable other people to be able to make/add them to the program.
So it’s an intentional design decision that the background doesn’t save, the idea is that setting the background acts as an intention setting ritual. I’m wondering if it’s not actually helpful though 🤔
Due to technical limitations of the engine I used to build it, it’s unlikely I’ll be able to add this feature. If you have a comic sans alternative you like that’s open source I’d be happy to include it in an update :)
I'm glad you were able to find it! Some more detailed documentation is a good idea.
EDIT: For anyone finding this comment before additional documentation is added the recover feature is found here: Options (link at bottom of writing window) > Recover Session
Oh geez, that's not good. I'm glad you were able to find the recovery feature but it shouldn't be crashing on you like that.
If you don't mind helping me debug this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so I can send you a debug version that will log the error. I'm happy to send you free theme packs if you are able to help. Thank you!
