Character Tracker and Search Within the Storyboard
Hey all, love the product.

I think it would be handy if you you could include which characters are involved in a plot point. I know you can associate a topic with a plot point but that falls short if you have more than one character involved in a plot.

Plot1: Jim talks to Sally.
Characters involved: Jim, Sally.

Plot2: Jim goes to the store.
Characters involved: Jim.

Plot3: Jim runs into Sally at the store, they chat with Bob the manager.
Chracter involved: Jim, Sally, Bob.

Kind of related, if the storyboard had a search bar to say, search for "Jim" then you would be able to see the plot connections that involve Jim. Even if the plot points without the searched topic became greyed out, it would make following plot connections a lot easier :)

Search for Jim
All 3 plot points remain visible.

Search for Sally
Plot1 and plot3 remain visible.

Search for Bob
Plot3 remains visible.

Have a nice day LWD!

If you view the topic for Jim, you will see the list of topics in which he is mentioned in a panel on the right.

The automatic linking of the text in topics helps out greatly in automatically providing this information for you.

In general, we envisioned that users would associate a Scene or other topic with a plot point. Then that topic would identify and link to all the characters (and other elements) that wove into the plot point.

I'll add your idea to the todo list, but I think you can already accomplish what you want to a reasonable extent. It's just not wired entirely into the plot at present, which would be the next step for us to add.
