The New Way To Write Journals

Fri Apr 5, 2013, 2:26 PM
Sta.sh Writer's toolbar and sidebar have been incorporated into the Write a Journal Entry page to make for a more dynamic journal creation experience!

New! The Sta.sh sidebar now gives you direct access to community-created emoticons! The Emoticon tab of Sta.sh Writer's sidebar has been updated to display both official emoticons and recently popular emoticons created by community members. Both sections have been given "Show more" buttons, so that you can explore either section in addition to searching for a specific emote using the sidebar's search box.


Some of the most highly requested features for the Journal submission page have been present in Sta.sh Writer for some time, such as rich-text formatting and a formatting toolbar. With Sta.sh Writer's advanced capability added, writing a Journal becomes even easier than before. All of Sta.sh Writer's tools are available, and because the journal is being created and submitted from the Write a Journal Entry page, creating a journal, adding thumbnails, and submitting a journal can all be done from one page, in one step.

In addition, because of the inclusion of Sta.sh Writer, Journal drafts can be saved to Sta.sh, and then brought back into the Journal page at a later time with the use of the "Open Draft" option in the File menu. This gives deviants the chance to create Journals regardless of constraints, making the feature more inclusive.

Try it out!


You can give this new integration a try by going to the Write a Journal Entry page, which can also be accessed from the Submit menu! Feedback can be left on this article, and if you encounter any bugs or issues, please file a ticket in the devBUG Issue Tracker under the Journal Writer project.


A new way to write a Journal has been launched to Beta Testers, now with an additional feature for emoticons!

Is there a way you can submit the Journal Entries to your gallery?

How do add descriptions to a journal entry under the journal? Sorry, I'm kinda new to this...

Hi there! You have to use Sta.sh Writer in order to add a description to a Journal. If you prefer to use the Write a Journal Entry page, you can write your entry on that page, go to the File menu, and select "Save Draft". Once you do that, your completed Journal will be in your Sta.sh, and can be submitted from there. Hope that helps! :)

I really like the new way to write journals, but my text doesn't keep within borders anymore - it just goes straight off to the side and off-screen, and renders my journals like this: beldarius.deviantart.com/journ…

Stupid bugs.

Hi there! You'll want to file a bug report at the Help Desk about that. :)

Yeah, none of this shows up for me and won't let me write an entry. I really hate the new DA. Just sayin'.
