@ Franz - thanks for the Scrivener and Word templates. I checked them out, but I still prefer Gingko for the simple reason that you can see at least the top 3 levels of the “snowflake” side-by-side horizontally, and Gingko’s “fruit machine” interface makes it very easy to quickly switch between parts > chapters > sections etc.

Yes, in the end Excel is a large table of index cards. When it comes to single lines of text, I do use it a lot (especially for project planning). But with Gingko one can actually start writing the text. I do have other index card based software (Outline 4D, Story Turbo, Scrivener, even OneNote), but each have some limitations in their use of the cards.

Okay, we’ve gone a bit off-topic re CT v.6 ;)
