Here are some key features of "Storybook":
· Storybook has two views: the chronological view and the book view. The chronological shows the chapters sorted by date. The book view in contrast shows the chapters sorted by chapter numbers, as you would read it in the final book. Of course in both views the chapters and there related information can be edited any time.
· Storybook helps to keep the overview, especially for complex stories with two or more strands. You imagine of Storybook as some kind of a dynamic mind map.
· Strands and strand links: Each chapter belongs to a primary strand. Optionally other related, secondary strands can be linked to a chapter.
· Person management: Add, edit or remove persons (characters) and assign them to the related chapters.
· Location management: Add, edit or remove locations and assign them to the related chapters.
· Parts: Large projects can be split into well arranged parts.
· Information: Chapter related information of the currently selected part are shown as well as warnings for missing chapters or chapters existing twice. A overview list shows all present strands, persons and locations.
· Adjustable view: The chronological view can be resized any time to fit to screen, or to get a better overview if many strands are defined. Even more working space is available if you hide the information panel with a simple click on the tool bar.
· Instant save: Because Storybook uses an embedded database to store data (and not a file) each input entered is saved in an instant. Even if the program crashes, you won't loose any data.
· Completely stand-alone: Write your book or script with your favorite software. The only link needed is the chapter number.
