· Progress Tracker. Now you will be able to set a goal and control your writing progress. You can choose between an overall target or a daily goal and set a deadline with the days of the week you use to write. We have also included some info about how to get the most out of the progress tracker.
· A Widget to Control Progress. You can choose any of your projects in Story Planner with a goal set and see your writing progress at a glance on your home screen. We are sure this will help you stay motivated and achieve your goals.
· We have fully adapted the app, ensuring that all text fields work correctly and leave enough space to write with an Apple Pencil on your iPad.
· Security Protection. Now you can configure the app to be locked with code or Touch/Face ID protection.

· Drag and Drop for iPad and Mac. Now you just have to choose the picture you want and drag and drop it to the character or location profile. Moving items to a scene or another project works with drag and drop too.
· We have included keyboard shortcuts to help you boost your productivity, as well as full trackpad and mouse support (on the iPad).
· Organization by Tags. All the items in the app can be organized by tags now. For example, suppose that you want to arrange your characters by groups to see how they are related to each other. In that case, you can create new tags for Family, Friends, and Work and assign those tags to the different character profiles. You can also use this feature to assign species to your characters if you are a science fiction author.
· Search, Filter, and Sort. Organization by tags is useful, but you need a way to arrange and work with those tags, so we have added a search bar for all of the lists within the app and a filter to see the different items organized by tags. You will also be able to sort lists and search results by title, date, or manually.
· Color Themes. We offer different color themes now, for both light and dark modes. This way, you can choose the accent color you prefer and be more comfortable when you use the app.
· New Languages. We have translated the app into French and Portuguese.
· Other Improvements. We work to make this app even better and more comfortable to use with each update. We have thoroughly studied our interface and listened to the feedback from all of you in order to add small improvements that will make a big difference. We have increased the size and line spacing in the text fields to make them easier to read. We have also adjusted the crop and scale for images since many of you requested the option to zoom out to see and load the whole picture.
· We have added the option to open multiple windows on your Mac. Now you can work on different projects, or different parts of your project, at the same time.
· We included more options to the menu and new keyboard shortcuts (on the Mac).

· As always, we have made some minor performance improvements to make the app faster and easier to use. Happy outlining!

· We have made more accessible the actions for all the items in the app. Now you can delete, duplicate, export, copy, etc. by swiping your finger over the item —also right-click on mouse on your Mac— or through the ellipsis ... symbol you will find at the up right inside the item.

Version 5.0 / Nov 20, 2019
iOS
Mac
New Features:
·
We have completely redesigned the app to make it more comfortable, beautiful and current. We have also taken the latest Apple technology into account to offer you the best user experience possible. And this is just the beginning, because we’re going to keep working to bring you fantastic new features soon.
· We have added an organization system for projects that allows you to mark them as “in progress” or archive them as completed projects. In addition, you can now add tags to projects in order to organize them by categories.
· Text fields are now much more comfortable to use since they adapt to the text you write instead of vice versa.
· Photos are now displayed in a larger size and are better integrated into the character and location cards.
· You can customize predefined elements (character type, scene tension, etc.) and adapt them to your way of writing. You don’t have to stick to our model anymore, but can instead create your owns.
· Each character can have several functions, which will also be displayed in the character list.
· We have modified the plot colors and how they are selected so you can see all of the colors at a glance and change them more easily.
· We have improved the scene cards so that you can create characters, plots or locations from them more quickly, in order to later modify them from the corresponding tab.
· In scene cards, you can personalize act names and call them whatever you want. You can also add multiple plot lines to each scene, which will be reflected in the statistics.
· We have added new statistics that are also displayed via graphs so you can more efficiently analyze your story data at a glance.
· iPad has its own design so you can move through your projects more easily; we have improved the Slide Over and Split View and have incorporated the new iOS 13 (iPadOS) technology that allows you to open multiple windows of the app at the same time so that nothing interrupts your inspiration!

Compatibility:
· Updated for macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility.
· IOS 13-compatible.
