    • Hello Denise,
      we’re very sorry to hear that you are having trouble with the character names. To enter something into a card or box, be it a character card or a plot card, you double-click it. The first click activates the card, the second makes it editable.
      In addition to the context sensitive help under the | ? | in the tool bar, there are instructions at this link, https://www.beemgee.com/blog/category/instructions/, which you’ll also find in the global menu (the sandwich icon top left). Also, you can turn the TOUR on and off at any time – it guides you through the major features and functions.
      We hope this helps. You can write help@beemgee.com any time if you have questions. We answer as quickly as we can.

      • Thank you for your reply. I did return to original e-mail and discover the instruction to double-click there after searching site for information and sending this message. Hopefully, assignment 2 will be straightforward technically at least.

  • The Plot feature is a great idea, but the formatting could be better. With all of the cards in a single line, it is difficult for me to place them properly in chronological order, and virtually impossible in the narrative. Having the cards set up in a grid so you can see more at one time would greatly improve the ease of use of this feature.

    • Hello Deja. The choice of presenting the cards as a horizontal timeline in the two sort orders narrative and chronology is something we discussed at length in the team and with many authors. We see significant benefits to keeping the timeline as that, a timeline – which it would not be if we let the cards run into several lines according to the size of the screen. Once you start using structure markers, or highlighting for example individual storylines, you see the advantage of the horizontal timeline. To make it easy to use, we have the zoom feature and the grabber, with which you simply pull the timeline left or right.
      Nonetheless, some people (including team members!) would welcome the option of the more familiar way of presenting the cards to fill the screen. Since you have brought the idea up again, we have now taken it into our feature pipeline, which you can see here and vote on: https://www.beemgee.com/blog/feature-roadmap/cards-view-option/
      Thanks for your input!

  • Dog goneit. It won’t let me add to character’s want. I clicked the little edit pencil on Want, it put a gray rectangle to write in. But it won’t let me write today. Yesterday it would. Very frustrating.

    • How very strange! To answer character questions it is best to mark the card of the character you want to work on and then click SINGLE. The MULTI-view is primarily to compare and contrast your characters per attribute, though you can edit your input by clicking the pencil icon and double-clicking into the field you want to edit.
