This lets you focus in on specific elements while at the same time retaining the ability to "take a step back" and look at the whole picture.

A compelling story can well be called a gestalt, for it contains interwoven elements that all tie together to make a whole that is indeed more than the sum of its parts.

Within Power Structure's Gestalt View, you can "walk" your way through the story, seeing how it flows and eddies, making sure that it both works as a unified whole and as its individual elements.

Note that you can both see and set the categorization / color coding of individual Story Beats (in the above graphic these are listed as Scenes) in this View, and you can rearrange both your Sequences (a.k.a. Chapters) and Story Beats simply by dragging and dropping them with your mouse.
