Aesop Story Engine version 1.9.9 introduces new easy to use options to change the looks and functionality of the Chapter Component. You can go to Appearance->Customize->Aesop Story Engine to access these options.
Look at the updated demo page for the Chapter Component.
Note the new “Left Dots” and “Right Dots” styles are not compatible with Jorgen and Kerouac themes yet. The support will be added to future versions of the themes. Novella requires version 1.9.6 or higher.
