Hang on a sec.

Whining? Andy? Hardly. He isn’t in competition with Scrivener. He just made a business observation.

Andy’s Hyperplan works well as a replacement for Plottr. Set attributes for plot thread and chapter, and display chapters as rows and plot threads as columns (or vice versa).

That’s why I bought it. I found it worked more to my liking as a kanban utility, but it isn’t bad for story planning.

One strength it’s got is that connections (lines between cards) are actually navigable. Typical mind maps allow adding connections, but don’t have a way to navigate them. If you end up with a bowl of spaghetti, it’s hard to follow the lines. Hyperplan will list the connections from each card. Superior.

Would you prefer not to be able to contact developers? Microsoft Word might be your best choice. If you can contact developers, is it OK for them to have a signature block identifying what they develop?

Andy, please don’t stop posting here.
