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 your novel, navigate to "My Writing" in the app menu and you will find an "import" button at the top.

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.

The import dialogue box in Novlr

If you’re importing a full novel, it will upload into multiple chapters based on the heading hierarchy in the document, if you have set it. Otherwise, it will import into a single chapter.

You will be able to use Novlr’s split function to split a large chapter into smaller chapters with a future Novlr update.

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

You can also import individual chapters. Read more here.
