My understanding is that there will be multiple types of critiquing, with this paragraph style as one of them. So you should be able to do it the way you usually do it without issue.

I'll try to have an option that's very similar to the current way, but it might separate the paragraphs more so it's easier to critique.

Yay! That would be good. Really, if it was just like critiquing within a Word document, that would be pretty much perfect. It's just the cutting out little bits to talk about and stuff that's too complicated for me.

I'll try. I also find critiquing in a Word document easy.

This is the critique selection page. It's fully functional. Other than purely visual aspects, I don't think I'll have to edit it again.

I don't like hugging, so I guess my feelings shall be best conveyed with a sharp knife.

... I think I can find you.

The first steps for the Document Critique are done. It's the easiest to do, since it's so similar to how YWO does it now. When it's done, you won't need those [quote] tags anymore, and you can simply choose a color and type your comments anywhere.

Also, a blank line is added between paragraphs so it's easier to tell them apart.

Really really love the work (if everything is functional =p), but is there any way you could disable the template option for the poetry/lyrics sections. I haven't seen the template, so I'm not sure how its structured, but I'm assuming that it has different focuses than you would see in a poetry critique. Either that or I could make a seperate template for poetry if you want. Regardless, I'm making some assumptions about it, so any more detail on that option would be great.
