Yes, please, my credit card is champing at the bit. (Yes, I thought it was spelled chomping too).

A few years ago when working on a story, I set up an Excel template for plotting the Signposts and Journeys of the 4 Throughlines using Your Plot, Step by Step by Melanie Anne Phillips (http://storymind.com/content/165.htm). It was like Dramatica Pro's Plot Progression screen, but with more parts to each Act. I copied each Signpost name from my storyform into the template, but I found it helpful to slightly rename the Signposts to be more in tune with my story. (For example, PLAYING A ROLE became APPEARING TO BE, DOING became PEFORMING, etc.)

So I'm eager to use the new Gists feature in Dramatica. Also, creating my own Gists will be a great way to organize story ideas. I think it's going to be a great help.

Thanks for working on the new version! Looking forward to any info.

We're working on it. The Windows version is proving to be a bit more troublesome than expected. Trust me that I will post information on these boards the moment we open up beta testing. No E.T.A. when that will happen.

I admit, I can't wait :)

Okay, I'm a 2nd generation Cubs fan---my Battle-of-the-Bulge hero uncle went to his grave waiting for the next World Series, and he took me to my first game when I was a boy. But THIS wait is getting up there, too ...

I feel your pain but cannot melt the glacier any faster than its natural pace. It is still coming, but not any time soon.
