The More button (···) appears at the top of the Entry View. The More view helps you perform common tasks related to journal entries. For example, you can:
- Open the Emotion Charts.
- Get a writing prompt.
- Start a Timer
- Open the App Settings (iPhone, iPad).
See More Button for more options.
To add photos/videos to your entry, click the More button (···) and choose Insert Photo/Video.
- iPhone/iPad: a media browser will appear so you can select photos/videos stored on your iPhone/iPad.
- Mac: a file chooser will appear. Tip: it may be easier to drag photos/videos from the Photos app and drop them on your journal entry.
You can choose whether to add a photo to the Media Gallery or insert it in the entry text. The Media Gallery displays square thumbnails in a row at the top of the entry. Click a photo to see a larger, uncropped version in the photo viewer. You can also click photos inserted in the entry text to open them in the photo viewer.
If the photo was created on a different date than the journal entry, Lifecraft will ask if you want to change the journal entry date to match the photo.
Don’t know what to write?
Click the More button (···) and choose Prompt. Zee will give you a topic to write about for 8 minutes. Writing for 8 minutes a day, a few times a week, quickly adds up to something remarkable.
Copy entry link
Click the More button (···) and choose Copy Link to Entry. A link to the selected journal entry will be copied to the clipboard. The default link name is the journal entry date, but you can change it to whatever you like. You can then paste the link in a different journal entry OR a different app. When you click the link, the original journal entry will be opened.
Choose an emotion
Emotions are an integral part of Lifecraft (see Emotions Overview). To add an emotion to a journal entry, click the emotion bar on the right side of the screen and select an emotion. See Adding Emotions for more information.
Tag your entries
Tags (requires Lifecraft Premium) allow you to group entries even if those entries belong to different journals. Let’s say you want to create a Food tag.
- Click at the bottom of a journal entry.
- Type "Food".
- When you’re done typing, the tag will automatically be created and added to your entry.
- You can then filter your entry list to show all entries that have the "Food" tag.
