In this article, I’ll show you the editing preferences of Fade In and how they can help you speed up your writing.

To open the dialog go to “Fade In – Preferences” and go to the “Editing” tab.

Fade In Editing PreferencesAutocomplete typing

Choose whether you want Fade In to give you suggestions about character names, scene headings, and the like from your word lists.

Autocomplete next character

This can be quite useful when you’re going back and forth between two characters a lot when writing your dialogue. If checked, Fade In will try to guess your next character so you don’t have to type it every time.

Spell checking

Fade In indicates words with a red underline that it didn’t find in the dictionary.

Autocapitalize first word

You can choose to capitalize every first word of a sentence if you want to do so.

Autocorrect DOuble CAps

When you’re typing very fast, sometimes the second letter of a word gets capitalized as well. Check this box if you want to have that corrected automatically.

Smart quotes

Choose if you want Fade In to change your quotes to so-called typographic quotes, or smart quotes, or if you want to stay with the regular double quotes.

Smart selection

When you’re deleting or moving words, Fade In will automatically check if you’re not leaving any unnecessary spaces behind.
