Mariner Software has released StoryMill 4 for Mac OS X, an update of the software for writing a story or novel. Mariner President Michael Wray says there are several new features in StoryMill 4 that every writer will appreciate, including:
° Snapshots — the writer can capture a snapshot of any scene or chapter in order to make changes and refer back to that snapshot at any time, comparing new and old versions;
° Novel View — a story can be viewed and printed in its entirety;
° Redesigned Timeline View — supporting timelines ranging from minutes to centuries, the new timeline view also offers navigation tools for developing the flow of your story.
StoryMill 4 also now offers a trash feature just like the Mac OS X Finder. The software requires Mac OS X 10.6 or higher.
StoryMill costs US$49.95 and is available for trial as a download only from the Mariner Software website (http://www.marinersoftware.com). Current registered StoryMill users can purchase the upgrade version for $24.95.
