Visual Story Engine

I was asked to re-post this here -- I have created a little web page that let's you import the story engine file (export from the reports screen), and see where there are thematic relationships in your story form.

Mac users: when you save the file from Dramatica, make sure it has the .txt suffix, or you can't import it.

That is a cool way to get another perspective on how your throughlines are connected. Thanks for reposting it.

Does it require Dramatica to be set to use layman's terms? (Edit/Preferences/Term Swap)

Hm, good question. I only tried it with the "layman's" terms -- actually the way the program works, I don't think it will matter. I'll try it out with the alternative terminology.
