Copying Stories to Another Computer

All text for a project/story is stored in a single file, so it's essential to copy this file to the new computer.

There are many ways to do this including using a USB or thumb drive, sending an email with an attachment or using a cloud service like Dropbox.

Each project/story file name ends in .wnwx and in a file manager they are shown as WNWX files.

This shows the example prject file in Windows file manager.
