StoryServer Compatibility

StoryServer uses it’s own proprietary GUI system. While every effort has been spared to make StoryServer compatible with Windows XP, the developers of StoryServer cannot guarantee that future versions will be compatible.

Enable ClearType

On a LCD screen, the fonts may look jagged. In order for your fonts to look smooth, enable ClearType.

Paths

In order to save your StoryServer files, please ensure you use the "My Documents" folder.
Do not save your StoryServer files to the root (C:\) or in the Program Files (C:\Program Files) folder. Windows XP may not allow you to save to those locations.

Does StoryServer use WinHelp?

StoryServer’s documentation is all on-line. StoryServer does not use WinHelp nor HTML-Help (CHM).
