Dear all,

It is the release date of Story Architect 0.1.2.

This release doesn’t include the treatment editor for a number of reasons so this module has been moved to the next version. Even so, we have a few cool features for you that many of you might like.

Locations map

Here you can lay out the location cards of your story on a virtual canvas, build routes between them and group them in a way that suits you.

To activate the location map you need to select the parent location section.

Writing sprints

We've added the ability to motivate yourself and share the results of your progress toward your goal.

You will find a timer icon in the main menu near your avatar. Clicking on it activates the ability to start a sprint - set the time and go. While the clock is ticking, you can see a filling line on top of the workspace that shows the amount of elapsed and remaining sprint time, and all the words you have entered will be counted and shown at the end of the sprint.

Story Architect 0.1.2 also includes the following changes and fixes:
- Added the option to create groups in the Character Relationship Editor;
- Added the ability to align the text width, both for a particular paragraph (via the context menu) and for the style of the block in the template editor of the script;
- Refined the appearance of toolbars so that they do not distract attention;
- Speed of the app was considerably optimized:
-- when opening the project
