Export Story

Then choose the format: Special Stories or Special Words. The following instructions detail exporting in Special Stories format, instructions for exporting to Special Words are below.

You can transfer any of the resources you have created to open in the native editions of our apps. Any resources you have downloaded from Special iApps or Numicon can only be shared and downloaded into Special Stories Plus or Special Words Plus.

On Desktop:

The file will either automatically be saved in your Downloads folder, or you will have a choice of which folder to use (depending on your browser's download settings). From there you can then open the app in Special Stories or Special Words, send it to other devices, share with friends and family, or create backups of your word lists for safe keeping.

On iOS:

You will be presented with a page which will allow you to do a number of things. Open in "Special Stories" will allow you to open the resource in a native edition of the app if installed on the device and More... or the share button allows you to Save to Files on the device, send the word list via email, copy to another device using AirDrop and copy to certain cloud-storage apps you have installed​.

On Android:

The file will automatically be saved to the Downloads area on your device. From there you can then open it in Special Stories and Special Words, send it to other devices, or create backups of your word lists for safe keeping.

Exporting to Special Words

When you choose this option, you have exported a file that can be opened by Special Words. You can open this on the same device (if you have Special Words installed) or save it and then send via email, AirDrop, etc, to open in Special Words elsewhere. When importing in Special Words, you can choose to add the word list as a new profile or replace an existing profile. Each page in the original profile in Special Stories is transferred as its own word in Special Words, and the name of the profile is taken from the title of the story: you can make changes to the word list after importing it, as you would with any other word list in Special Words.

Please Note

In Special Stories Plus your content and settings within the app are stored locally on the device in an area managed by your web browser. Clearing website data in your browser will DELETE your content from the app. We strongly recommend you export your word lists to somewhere safe on another device, on a regular basis, to avoid unexpected loss of content that is valuable to you.
