StorYbook 2.1.12 is a program that will aid writers to control multiple plot lines while writing. Storybook will allow them to keep an overview about the characters, locations, scenes, chapters, strands, and parts involved in a book or novel. The program will store all the information about characters and locations in one place, allowing you to add information anytime you want and check for consistencies as the story flows. Besides, you can use the program´s features to manage chapters, scenes, characters and locations. You will be able to assign them into a scene, avoiding mistakes such as assigning the same character to two different locations at the same time. For your convenience, StorYbook displays all the information in the form of charts, that can be easily viewed. You can choose to review the information in a Book View, Chronological View or through the Chapters and Scenes Manager. You will be able to navigate through your book, going to a certain chapter date or scene at anytime.

Guest It was released as open source just before the original author ceased work on it. It is still available and being updated. As the name 'storybook' is unavailable the new version is oStorybook (o for open) - available @ sourceforge.

Guest Any way to open your old Storybook Files and extract all the data I've worked so hard compiling over the months I was using it before it shut down?

Guest Try clicking on the storybook.bat file under in your Programs folder under Storybook. It worked for me. You can then export all of your work as a PDF, RTF, text HTML or ODT file. PDF was the only that worked for me.
