Plotline 2 is designed to help novelists, writers, playwrights, screenwriters, in fact, any writer, to map out the structure for a story.

Plotline 2 breaks a story into sections, plotlines, and scenes. A section could be Act 1 of a classic 3-act structure, or it could be just ‘the middle’ of your short story.
Plotlines are the key strands of your story - whether you want to break things down by character, or subplot, or technical structure - it’s entirely your choice.

Once you’ve created your structure and plotlines, add scenes in the scene overview, a scrolling view into your story that shows the ebb and flow of your scenes within each section, according to how intense each scene should be.

When you’re ready, generate a synopsis that’s ready to export straight to your word-processor of choice.

Features: -

1) Create story structures for novels, short stories, screenplays, and stage plays.
2) View your story’s narrative arc in the scrolling scene view window.
3) Easily move your scenes around within a section to get the best dramatic structure for your story
4) Generate a synopsis of your story for reference when you write
5) Export the synopsis to a normal text file, or as OPML for import into another outlining tool.
6) A handy PDF user-guide helps you get the most out the program.
7) Import from the original iPad version of Plotline.

Please note: -

Plotline 2 is a tool to help writers plot a story, it is NOT a word-processor.
While Plotline 2 can import the OPML export generated by Plotline, the two programs use a completely separate type of datafile for storage, and are NOT designed to be used together. We recommend you select the version for your preferred platform and use that exclusively.
