Linking Plot Points to multiple section sheets/ scene sheets

Recommended Posts

The story I'm working on contains three different plots that converge towards the end of the story. I am attempting to connect different scenes to the correct "plot line" to keep things straight until the convergence point. The problem I'm running into is I when linking a section sheet to a plot point, the application wants me to create the plot point from within the sheet, thus creating a new plot point. I want to be able to link multiple section sheets/ scene sheets to one of three "plot points." Is there a way to do this?

 

Thanks for any help,

Jeremy

Hi Jeremy,

 

There is. To assign a plot point to a section sheet, navigate to the plot point, right-click on the section link, and assign it to the section of your choosing.

 

You should really be able to do that in the other direction as you were attempting to do. I'll add that to the list.

I have done that, but I have only been able to assign the plot point to one section sheet. I would like to be able to assign the plot point to multiple section sheets. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Here's an example of what I'm trying to do. I have three plot points and 30 sections. I'm attempting to assign "plot point one" to section sheets 1,4,8,13,18,etc. "Plot point two" to section sheets 3,7, 11, 15, etc.

Hi Jeremy,

I apologize. I misunderstood your question.
Plot plots aren't assignable to more than one section.

Hi JeremyH,

 

I do have some sheet-related enhancements planned for this summer, though there aren't any dates attached yet.

 

As a work-around, you could create a text file with your section outline and insert plot point links there. There aren't any restrictions on the number of links in a text file.

I know this is not the request section in the forum, but since we're already here, will you consider creating a "plot/story thread" sheet in which we can link sections, scenes, and characters? Just an organization idea.

 

Thanks,

Jeremy
