Re: Initial Thoughts on Outline 4D

Try going to Tools > Outline 4D Options, and deselecting the option to save every 15 minutes. That worked for me. I wanted to keep the backup feature ON, but the problem was even if yew made NO changes, the pop up about saving still came onto the screen. The program goes the 15 minutes but does NOT...

Re: Ability to Reduce Size of The Navidoc Panel

Hi Chris, Thanks for your reply. I had forgotten about the slider controls, so thanks for mentioning those. However, the NaviDoc panel itself has a minimum amount by which it can be decreased in size by being dragged to the left using the vertical splitter, and it is that minimum size that I would ...

Re: MMS with Full 'Outline' Ability/Package

One thing I remember being surprised by in Outline 4D is that it doesn't have that ability to put index cards on a horizontal 'timeline', which (as you know from what I have written here and elsewhere in the 'Screenwriter Wishlist' forum) is my number one 'essential' feature. That can't be right? O...

I would have thought that most people would find this very useful, and have been surprised that there are only one or two programs out there which have this as a tool/function/capability.

Take care,


I'd rather see some kinda full outlining capability though....

Re: MMS with Full 'Outline' Ability/Package

Thomas, what would you like to see in your 'ideal' outlining program? Outline 4D is not bad, really. Though I can see where yew would have a problem what with a MAC. It did take me a long time to tweak the settings to where I could use them, but now I really do like the program. So I guess what I w...

Re: MMS with Full 'Outline' Ability/Package

Hi Thomas, Thanks for your reply, but that's not really what I was getting at, because, as I said, I am not interested in Outline 4D, or using it - or anything else really - as a separate program. I would rather see sophisticated outline abilities included as part of MMS, as I said in my post. Yes ...

Re: MMS with Full 'Outline' Ability/Package

Supposedly yew can integrate Outline 4D and MMSW. So that yew can port your outline from Outline 4D into MMSW and then write from there.

But I have yet to figure out how to make this work in a way that is beneficial to a screenwriter.

Re: Why Do Some Questions/Topics Go Unanswered?

If I have a question, I really don't think I would care who answered it, so long as it was a valid answer? If they could get rid of the SPAM (which I have given them the software to do), then I think we would see much more activity in these forums.

Windows has a drop down list of over rides but show only top menu is not on the list. :(

Show Only Top Menu

I like the way this feature gets everything out of the way and yew write.

But sometimes yew do need to access the other buttons. Is there a quick and easy keyboard toggle shortcut for this action? That would be suh-WEET! :)

Re: Initial Thoughts on Outline 4D

Too bad. Good integration between MM6 and Story View would make it the ultimate combo. I've worked very hard to find a way to make StoryView and MM2000 work together, and it was just too difficult. There is a certain (dead now) software that is just making the back & forth between outline and s...

Initial Thoughts on Outline 4D

First, this idiot IGTTOS that is spamming has to go. 'Nuff said about that. There is really not much to say about the new software. The FONT and EVENT drop down menus do look a bit nicer, but at the same time, that annoying BUG is still there that was there in the Storyview. If yew wait 15 minutes, ...

Re: StoryView ?

Does the Outline 3D/MM v6 combo offers better import/export integration than the StoryView v2/MM 2000 combo? Because that (for me) would be a good reason to upgrade. bump I just got this program yesterday (thanks, Chris!) I will do a check real quick... K what I am seeing is it imports the DSW as t...
