I know this isn’t what Infinity is for, and I use Infinity for a lot of other things. Still learning and loving the flexibility!
I feel like with some tweaking there should be a way to create a timeline for an outline story/novel project, and if I can manage to pull that off within Infinity, I would be very happy
I’ve been playing around with the Gantt view and start/end dates. Luckily my story is set in present time (2016-2018), so the dates are accessible in Infinity. But there might be other solutions. Basically, what I’m trying to create is the following:
- A visual overview of plots and subplots – many stories and characters over the time in which the story is set, with defined scenes viewable on a timeline.
- Character-specific color coding (using tags?) to easily see what scenes on the timeline belong to which character (and consequently, subplot). Bonus if this can be filtered, to easily identify only scenes related to a specific character.
- Easy drag & drop moving of scenes as the draft develops.
If someone has any ideas, fire away! Maybe I’m stuck in my way of thinking and someone else can think outside the box, even if it’s not a complete solution
