Twine 2.0.5#

Release Date: May 26, 2015


This is the first release in the 2.x series to offer native apps for desktop OSes.

There is a known bug with the version of SugarCube bundled with this release. As a workaround, use the Formats option on the right side of the story list and choose Add a New Format at the top.

Enter this address:

This format should be called just "SugarCube", and is identical functionally to what is normally bundled.


  • Fixed a bug where dragging a group of passages caused them to jump to odd locations after the drag.
  • Fixed a bug where passages would jump around after moving from the editor to the story list.
  • The first passage added to a story is always set as its starting point.
  • Better handling is done to recover gracefully when a story format fails to load.
  • In native app builds, the filenames for stories are stripped of any characters that might cause problems (i.e. slashes or colons).
  • New passages are now properly centered, regardless of zoom level.
  • A story with no starting point set now archives properly.


  • New visual previews of stories in the list.
  • You can now rename, test, and duplicate a story from the list instead of having to edit it first.
  • When a passage is renamed, the editor makes its best effort to change links accordingly. This doesn't yet work if the passage is mentioned in a macro.
  • Added rudimentary autocomplete when typing links in the passage editor. This only works right now for links, not macro mentions; this may change in the future.
  • Deleting a passage now prompts the user that they're sure; holding the Shift key while clicking the delete icon bypasses this warning.
  • The grid snap has been made coarser.
  • Pressing Control-Shift-Alt-(or Option)-D in a native app build will open a debugger console.
