Looks like Aeon Timeline is now available for Windows in addition to OS X.  (See it at scribblecode.com.)  On Mac, Aeon will sync with Scrivener, but that feature is not yet available on Windows.  IMO, Aeon has a better feature set than BeeDocs’ Timeline 3D

Thanks, Paul, it does look interesting. Only just watched the video, so I don’t know if the settings can be changed, but I wish there were more options to characterise the “entities’” involvement in a timeline event than just birth, death, participant or observer. Then this software could be used for other kinds of timeline related analysis than just fiction writing.

We had a discussion about timeline software a while ago:

I agree—that’s an occasional topic on Aeon’s support forum.  There’s a fixed set of entities {object, organization, person, place, project, technology, theory, time span} and each entity interacts with an event as one of {observer, participant, start, end, “none”} with “start” and “end” occasionally having different labels depending on the entity.  It would seem that’s a simple entity design scheme to expand on—says me, who doesn’t have to write the software to make that happen ;-)
