Outline 4D for Mac?

Postby Clint541963 » Nov 23, 2012 3:47 pm

Is there an ETA for when Outline 4D will be available for Mac users?

Will I be able to get an upgrade price from my Storyview 2.0?

Thanks,

Hey Sam -

No ETA.

Most likely you would be able to get an upgrade price from StoryView 2.0 or Outline 4D 2.0, but no promises. Historically we have allowed upgrades across platforms.

Here's *yet* another vote for porting OUTLINE 4D over to the MAC platform! PLEASE make this happen, as so many of us would love to purchase the software. I've tried unsucessfully to get the demo version running on a Mac using Parallels, but I'm a PC idiot, so couldn't get it installed...ugh.
Everywhere OUTLINE-4D is mentioned, someone is suggesting you release a MAC version...could be very cool...and an iOS version would be even more supah!
Thanks for considering doing it...(feel like I'm begging Intuit to upgrade Quicken!! ...sorry, being compared to Intuit is not very nice...)

Ok...I won't keep on begging...so I went and purchased the PC version!! I got it running via Paralles without too much trouble, considering I know absolutely "nothing" about PCs (and now I have massive sympathy for my poor mother who struggled for YEARS in Windws...poor woman.)
Anyhow, I can see the absolute potential, but a real Mac interface would make all the difference, so STILL BEGGING for a MAC version!!
I'm a total visual person, and Outline 4D is the closest thing to how mind works, so log in yet another VOTE for doing a Mac version, and hopefully I can get some sort of cross-platform-upgrade pricing!! OK...you make it, and I'll buy a second copy at full price. If that isn't incentive...egads!

Agree that a Outline 4D for Mac would be great. No one else is really serving this market. As so many of us at school are Mac, I would endorse it for my students and colleagues.

Hi,

I'll add to this, how much longer do we Mac users have to wait for a Mac version of Outline 4D? We have MMSW and Dramatica Story Expert, so why not Outline 4D?

I, probably like many Mac users, have a Mac because we prefer to use a Mac than a Windows PC, and don't want to run Windows, so you have customers with a need.

Can we have a realistic timeline of when we'll have Outline 4D for Mac?

Would be very happy to be a beta tester for Outline 4D for Mac.

Look forward to hearing from you guys,

David

I'd happily be a beta-tester of Outline 4D for the Mac too!

I'm just checking in to do my quarterly begging session for a version of Outline 4D on the Mac! I have already purchased the PC version and run it on Parallels, but it is a very clunky, unintuitive way to do things, and since the interface is so un-Mac-like, it is virtually unusable...ugh! That said, the potential is clear, and it could be the greatest screenwriting tool ever, if only it was a native Mac program!! Guess I'll have to start sending severed limbs to get the ball rolling on getting a mac version... :D~ ...just kidding, of course. Please give us an update...some hope...anything...

Maybe you should send out a survey to see what the interest level is for a Mac version. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised...

Still no E.T.A. I'm a Mac user so I feel the pain, but we still have several priorities before Mac O4D will see the daylight. Sorry.
