Hi, the Plotist team!
I like your software and I really appreciate it is available for free to the occasional writers.
But I fully agree to yam655's post: at the moment, the timeline is a great feature, but the editor is not really useful. I think the following use cases should be considered as it'd be very nice to have them:
It shall be possible to easily link single words (character and place names, items, etc.) to the defined elements. Once the mouse cursor is over a link a popup shall appear with short info about element (photo, synonyms, etc.). The links could be automatically created whenever the user types a name or a synonym.
A single chapter may contain several events, either described or referring to. In case an event is just mentioned it shall behave similar to the above described link. If a set of paragraphs is a description of an event, it shall be linked as a whole (for example with a different background color).
It shall be possible to enter some comments in the editor which are not a part of the story itself. Those comments shall be easily distinguished from the normal text and shall not be present in the export result. The comments may be used by the writers as placeholders ("Here I will write about X and Y when I get inspiration.") or other important notes for the future ("I must have used that wording not to reveal the twist.", "TODO: improve this section later.").
I keep my fingers crossed for the similar features to be released soon.
