Hiveword Updates

Hiveword update time!

Notes

The big news is notes that you can attach to pretty much anything — scenes, characters, etc. The notes are taggable and you can view all of them in one place with a powerful filter for finding what you want. Notes are part of the Hiveword Plus upgrade. I’ll talk more about notes in my next post.

Plotlines

The Scenes by Plotline page lists scenes vertically and then plotlines as horizontally. This allows you to quickly see how plotlines weave throughout your scenes. The feature itself has been around for a while but the plotlines were ordered by name. Since users can manually sort plotlines it makes sense to present them in the user’s sorted order and not by name. Now it is so.

Font Size

Eventually I want to make the application properly customizable. But, since that is a low priority, I’ve boosted the font size in the textboxes in the meantime. I hope this makes your eyes happier. I know it does mine!

Are You Sure?

If you’ve ever edited a scene, character, or whatever, and then tried to leave the page without first saving it you have seen the “Are You Sure?” dialog that saves you from losing data. But, boy, was it ugly. I mean UGLY. Now it is less so. 😉

That’s all for now. While no one complained about Are You Sure?, the rest of the changes were user requests. So, don’t be shy about contacting me with suggestions.

Until next time…

 

 

 

 

So embarrassing!
