TextRoll is a new, innovative web app offering a different digital writing approach, whether poem, drama, or novel. TextRoll provides an unmatched overview of your literary works with parallel, roll-based writing, drag-and-drop text blocks, and digital text relations. It is the ideal tool to take your writing to the next level.
Optimized for desktop and laptop
Dynamic rolls boost oversight and creativity
Writing is not a linear process but an erratic one. Notes, ideas, first paragraphs, and the final text constantly interact in many ways that are parallel rather than linear. TextRoll accommodates the creative writing process by introducing parallel rolls and creating a new paradigm for digital writing applications.
Today's standard writing software primarily provides tools for text editing but only minimally supports the creative process of writing from note to finished text in one app. TextRoll's parallel-roll architecture enhances the joining, connecting, and blending of different stages of text.
Tweak your texts with TextRoll's text block management. With the drag and drop functionality, you can quickly change the text structure of novels, scientific papers, journalistic articles, poems, or other literary works.
The arrangement and flow of text and paragraphs fundamentally affect the impact and dynamics of a text. TextRoll's drag-and-drop text management lets you easily play with different levels of text composition - first notes, lines, paragraphs - to achieve the maximum impact of your text.
Drag & drop to create your final text
Easily import, export and edit
Effortlessly import external text and use the built-in editor to design and further edit your final product. Export any roll or finished text as an HTML file to other tools for further design or publishing.
Digital text connections to manage inspirations
Having control over your text is the primary purpose of TextRoll, as the art of writing is to have all the moving parts of the final text under control. With virtual connections of text modules, TextRoll provides an effective way to manage the assembly of these parts efficiently. It doesn't just display on a static pinboard which text blocks should go together but connects them digitally and displays them on demand.
With one click, TextRoll locates all the previously connected parts of your text and joins them together, allowing you to quickly and effectively integrate those parts into the final text. You don't have to remember all the connections - TextRoll does it for you.
Customize your writing environment
Writing is a very personal endeavor. A stimulating and pleasant working environment is crucial for maximum creativity and progress.
TextRoll offers a wide range of customization options to adapt your writing program to your personal preferences. From text block outlines, colors, and fonts to general color settings and image background integration, TextRoll becomes your preferred and inspiring writing environment.
Poetic Circles - a home for your poems and texts
We created TextRoll to give your texts a home and a place to grow. You'll never accidentally lose a text again. And you can share it on the platform with friends who would like to follow your work.
Not just for poets, we call our sharing feature poetic circle. Give your friends reading or even writing privileges so they can interact directly with your work; let them be creative and support your work. Develop and fuel your writing together with your friends.
