Efficient Tools

Dark mode

If you’re a night owl or just simply enjoy the dark mode on your software, try turn on the dark mode on Inspire via View › Dark mode, or Ctrl+T.

Typewriter mode

Typewriter mode allows you to stay focus on what you have to say, and you don’t have to scroll up and down with your mouse to be in the center of the editor.

To enable it, go to View › Typewriter Mode.

Full screen mode

The full screen mode allows you to have an authentic immersive writing environment, where all you’re left to do is write.

To enable it, go to View › Enter Full Screen, or the shortcut key F11.

Add multiple dictionaries for spellcheck

Inspire lets you select up to three dictionaries for spellcheck. To enable more dictionaries, click Edit › Dictionaries, then select dictionaries you need.

Spellcheck & learn “misspelled” words

Inspire checks the spelling of your text automatically. But there are times when you need to use terms that are yet to be recognized by dictionaries. In this case, you could tell Inspire to learn a new word by right-clicking the word, then click “Show Spelling” and “Add“.

Total & partial statistics

You can check the statistics, such as words, sentences, links and images, of a whole sheet, or just the data for the selected part with the button.

Multiple language interface

Inspire is built to grow, a case in point is its multi-language interface. We owe it big to our selfless users from around the world. Big thanks to these warm-hearted contributors: Acknowledgment

So feel free to change the interface to whatever fits you the best.


Attachments on Inspire allow you to organize your sheets with tags such as “todo”, “urgent”,”draft”, etc. You can totally define more tags you will use on your work if needed.

Add tags to your sheet via Ctrl+4, or click the paperclip icon on the side bar ().



Think of the sheets as classic documents, except that they don’t require a “title” or a “file name” or anything as such.

Apart from what’s mentioned in the Overview sheet, here are more features that help you create an enabling distraction-free environment:

Split a sheet by heading and/or divider

If you write longer content, and you need to split it into shorter ones, no need for you to go through the tedious cutting and pasting process. You can easily split it up with the help of the sheet splitting feature:

Right-click your long content sheet, and click “Split Sheet…“. There, you have a group of sheets stored in a new group.

Merge multiple sheets into one

Inspire aims to let you write whole books, and you’ll probably need more than one single sheet of content for these. So, merging multiple sheets into a master one for later use is of great help. Here is how you can do it:

Press the Ctrl key and select the sheets you want to merge. Right-click the sheets highlighted and click “Merge Sheets“.

There, you have your master sheet created.

Export multiple sheets

When you selected the sheets, all of them will be “stitched together”, like a large chunk of content. You then can decide what format you want the merged sheet to be in, just like a regular sheet.

Batch process multiple sheets

Apart from merging, splitting, and exporting sheets, there are more features that help you organize your work:

  • Preview selected sheets so you’ll know how are the sheets doing when merged;
  • Delete unwanted sheets in bulk.
