Hello all

this is my first post and am impressed with the discussions here.

I am struggling with writing this post.  I am familiar with several PIMs/outliners, but I am looking for a tool that will help represent graphically different scenarios.

The application is more towards R&D technical projects, but I am wondering if a script writing or novel writing tool that provides graphical flow displays may do the trick.

Any suggestions??

thanks in advance.

Hi.

What exactly do you need the tool for?

Do you need something like a Gantt chart tool?
Or a mapping tool like VUE (http://vue.tufts.edu/).
Something like Storylines (http://www.writerscafe.co.uk/) or a software that used index cards you can colour and place as need (e.g. Supernotecard - http://www.mindola.com/supernotecard/).
Or something completely different.

And: Welcome to this nerdy forum.

Franz

Yeah, based on the minimal background you provide, Luis, I’d also suggest Scapple. And welcome to the forum!

Also worth looking at Inspiration (Mac/Windows/iOS), which combines outlines with mindmaps. Other apps do that too, nowadays, including Xmind and - on iOS - Idea Sketch.
