This app is pretty good! But some thoughts for improvement...

So, I have found the app to be very useful. I like a lot of the features it has, particularly with creating plots with different colors and the statistics. I also love the drag and drop feature for rearranging scenes. In general, this app has a lot of good ideas.

However, I think there are a few features that would really make this app a five for me.

-When I am adding a scene card, I notice that unless I click the down arrow at the bottom left corner of the interface, I can’t scroll. I’ve found that exceedingly frustrating.

-It would be really nice if the “Acts” were collapsable. I have a lot of scenes per act, since I’m using this for story outlining. So, it’d making the interface easier to use if this was a feature.

-Along the same lines as the above, I think it’d be nice if I could choose different layouts for the scene cards. For instance, if there was a compact view where you only see the scene titles. Or a view where you could see the scene cards as cards in along a timeline. I’ve just found myself scrolling and scrolling to find what I’m looking for. When you have a lot of scene cards, it gets cumbersome to rearrange them when you are scrolling and scrolling just to find them.

I hope your team will consider some improvements!

I love this app but I’ve i found and issue

You see I use this to outline and control what I’m writing but after I downloaded the new update I’ve been experiencing some glitches Or maybe bugs is a better term but anyways a white bar appears on the right side of my screen and the cyan as it appears to be cyan bar where you have the add a new story and download to social media buttons I think that’s what there are though I haven’t clicked button number 2, appears on the bottom of my screen and I can see the area you put the plot there I still love this app I’m just wondering of this was intended or not (sorry it’s long)

Great App

I’ve been looking like an app like this for a long time since A Novel Idea was taken down. While the app is great, one suggestion I have would be the ability to organize character functions better. As an example, every character under “protagonist” would all be grouped together. You should also be able to just type in the character function rather than choosing. It could help organizing groups, like having all people of team “A” and people of team “B” all under one file or headliner. Beyond hat, great app and definitely would recommend it to others.
