How do I import an existing novel into Novlr?

Whether you want to import an existing project to keep writing in Novlr, or want to upload a template to help you build out your characters, world, or plot, you can do so in Novlr.

To import a project, navigate to Writing/Projects in the dashboard and click on the Import button in the top right.

Once clicked, you will see a pop up where you can import from your device, or a drag a file to, and then select Import.

If you have heading hierarchy set in the document you are importing, you will be given the option to import your document as a single section or chapter, or choose to have Novlr auto-split your document into separate sections for you.

If you don't have heading heading hierarchy set, you can use Novlr’s split function to split a large doc into smaller docs

You can also import individual chapters. Read more here.

We currently only support import for .docx formats, but more will be coming very soon.
