Liquid Story Binder XE Tutorial:
Liquid Story Binder XE File Types...
Planners turn a simple list of ideas into Chapters. Think of Planners as a table of contents with subtitles. Click any item, and the Planner will create a chapter based on the item chosen. Planners combine Chapter titles and notes into a single list. Notes are indented while existing Chapter titles remain to the left.
Listings sort files in collapsible tree format. Add files under parent headings, or even parent files. Files can be listed more than once. There is no limit to Listing's structure.
Press the ENTER key to add headers and line captions.
Chapters are the backbone of Liquid Story Binder -- the text and sentences that make up the pages of your manuscript. Chapters are saved in Rich Text Format.
Use a Note window to save your chapter reference notes.
To save a Note, simply right-click and choose 'Save'.
For every Chapter file, Liquid Story Binder XE creates a Backup file. In many ways, this Backup file resembles a Builder. Entries, exact copies of the Chapter, are created, given a title, and added to the Backup. An entry is created for each version or daily change. Listed at the top of the Backup listing are entries for a 'Session Backup' and 'Previous Save Backup'. A session entry is created, just prior to saving, each time XE is closed and then re-opened. An entry is also created every time you say 'No' to saving. This entry is entitled a 'Negative Option Backup'.
Builder's are the most flexible of the XE file types. Builders combine multiple rich text documents sorted into a single file with titles, descriptions and color indexing.
Builders are perfect for organizing complicated storylines with alternating scenes and are a great place to save reference material. Use a Builder to organize scenes, store clippings, hold research, or use a Builder as a discard bin for worthy paragraphs.
Quickly create a to do list using a Checklist.
Use the two edit boxes below the main Checklist display to edit item titles and descriptions.
Press then ENTER key to add new items.
Simply double-click any item to check it off.
Dossiers organize people, places and things. Use title adjectives with descriptions and a portrait.
Galleries allow you to quickly sort and preview images. Click an image thumbnail to view the entire image.
You may add an unlimited number of reference images to help with your writing experience. To add a new image, simply click 'New Image...' from the 'Create' menu. Select an appropriate image file, and it will be copied to your book directory, allowing you instant access to it whenever you work.
Create a writing journal, or a journal for each one of your characters. Use the Liquid Story Binder XE Journal file type to write historical novels, day by day.
Liquid Story Binder XE Mindmaps allow you to visually link ideas together using lines and text. A mindmap is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Unlike many mindmapping applications, Liquid Story Binder XE does not use a rigid or pre-designed structure. Users can place items however they choose. Create item colonies, isolated from one another. Index items by color. Change item connections quickly and easily. Try using Mindmaps to create and organize family trees.
Outlines provide the perfect working environment for brainstorming and plot development. Create a expandable tree of thoughts for each and every chapter.
A list of horizontal columns with titles, descriptions and images. Use a Sequence to organize a series of events. Use Sequences to create and open documents.
Storyboards combine text and images to form a visual reference. Use Storyboards to create and open documents.
Liquid Story Binder allows you to quickly arrange ideas along multiple colored timelines, using individual text-based cards.
Sort your songs into playlists for quick listening. Access them from the main menu.
