An Outliner on Steroids with a Timeline View & Element Tracking
Outline 4D gives you the most powerful way to outline, plan, and present your ideas! It is a remarkable
outlining program that lets you brainstorm, create, structure and organize your ideas. In addition
to a traditional vertical outline format, Outline 4D has a horizontal timeline format that is vastly
superior to index cards, blocks, and traditional outlining systems.
Outline 4D has limitless space for your big ideas. The software enhances the research and organization
of your writing, helps you visualize your project and outline structure, and speeds the process
of brainstorming and creation. It lets you create virtual index cards that contain unlimited text:
from a few words to hundreds of pages.
Structure your ideas with Outline 4D's powerful Outline View or remarkable Timeline View to get a stronger
visual sense of your outline. The Tracking Feature allows you to track anything you want in your project,
as well as show connections between events and characters, objects or key words, revealing the rhythms
and patterns of your project in seconds. Outline 4D lets you see your outlines like never before!
Outline 4D's Outline window provides a familiar word processor interface that lets you write
in a familiar top-to-bottom manner, similar to other outliners. Each bullet-point in an outline
is called an Event. Add and remove events, edit them, promote or demote them (change their indent in the outline),
move them around the outline, and selectively hide or show portions of the outline. Get to know
the basic features and youíll be an outlining pro. It's easy.
See How All The Pieces Fit Together
Outline 4D lets you create the elements of your project and arrange them on a timeline.

or how many pages (novels, other stories) each event occupies. Zoom back for a full panorama
of your entire project and ìsee the forest for the trees, or zoom in to focus on the smallest detail.
Take spontaneous ideas and place them at any point in your project's timeline even if you don't know
what comes before or after that piece! Add the building blocks of your project in any order and immediately see any gaps!

"On the surface, Outline 4D is an outlining program, but that's where it begins.
It is an electronic index card system, and it is a timeline, and it is a brainstorming device,
and it is just about the most versatile and creativity enhancing program I have encountered."
-- Tom Kane, screenwriter and novelist
