Index Card View

Click for High Resolution Version

Many of our users tell us that this is their favorite View in Power Structure.

Play with it for just a little while and we're sure you'll see why!

Index Cards have been a time honored way of breaking down and structuring stories; but aside from the ecological implications, it also has some practical limitations, for example, say you've categorized a Story Beat (Plot Point in the graphic above) on your Blue Action Cards and then realize that it's really more of an exposition scene which you have on green cards.  You either have to get out the old bleach and dyes or rewrite the card.

Take the same problem into the electronic world, and you can simply fix it by dragging and dropping the card, as displayed in the animation above.

From this screen you can also:

  • Display from one to sixty cards at once

  • Display up to ten colored categories

  • Reorder the Categories by Dragging and Dropping

  • Drag'n'Drop Cards between categories

  • Drag'n'Drop Cards to reorder them

  • Add New Cards

  • Edit Existing Cards

  • Delete Existing Cards

And if that weren't enough, you also have a completely different way of using the Index Cards...
