I’m thrilled to share the exciting news of bibisco’s latest release, version 3.0! It’s been an incredible journey, and I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the writers who have contributed their ideas and suggestions to make bibisco even more amazing and useful.
Thank you so much for your invaluable input, and please don’t hesitate to keep sending me your proposals at email@example.com. While I may not be able to implement every single suggestion, I assure you that I’ll carefully read and evaluate each one.
Now, let’s dive into what’s new in bibisco novel writing software 3.0!
Many of you have asked me for this feature, and finally, here it is! You now can manage groups of characters, locations, objects, and narrative strands related to each other: a family, a team, a gang, or a group of friends. Or even characters with similar characteristics, such as wizards, warriors, elves, dwarves, orcs, dragons, fairies, etc.
In each group, it is possible to associate a color and a profile picture, and there is a space to enter the description indicating the characteristics, goals, values, norms, structure, roles, rituals, traditions, and so on.
All the character cards, locations, items, and storylines have labels showing which group they belong to. This makes it super easy to see group members at a glance. You can even filter and only check out the members of a specific group. This is especially handy in novels with many characters, locations, and objects.
Oh, and scenes and chapters have labels too! They show which groups the characters, locations, objects, and narrative strands in them belong to.
So, with group management, you’ll have a neat, organized, and visually appealing way to handle your story elements, especially if they are numerous.
Customized questions for character interviews
Are you missing the most crucial question for your character while going through all the interview questions? Are you crafting a fantasy or dystopian world where characters possess unique powers, and you want specific questions about these powers to appear in the interview?
No worries! Starting today, you can enrich character interviews with questions created by you.
Customized questions let you dig deeper into your character’s unique qualities and powers, making them stand out in the story. Plus, these personalized questions allow you to explore all the nitty-gritty details of your fictional world, so readers can get a feel for how everything works.
Here’s another highly requested feature from many of you. While it’s crucial to have the text broken down into individual scenes during the planning and writing stages, it’s important to be able to read a chapter or the entire novel continuously during the revision phase.
Now, you can revise the novel without navigating between scenes with the “Read chapter” button in the specific chapter section or the “Read novel” button in the entire chapters section.
You can also use a dropdown menu to jump to a specific chapter, and, best of all, you can read your novel in full-screen mode!
And what if you notice something you don’t like during the revision phase and want to change? It’s as easy as it can be! Just double-click on the part of the text you want to modify, and bibisco will open the corresponding scene for editing, highlighting the chosen paragraph.
This version significantly enhances the Mind Maps functionality (previously known as Relations in version 2.4). Here’s the lowdown:
- Unlimited Mind Maps: You can now create as many mind maps as your heart desires. No more limits, just let your thoughts flow!
- Colors and Cool Shapes: Get ready to jazz up your maps! You can choose your own colors for the elements, and I’ve even added some fresh new shapes to spice things up.
- Fancy Arrows: Arrows just got a makeover! You can now pick their colors to match your style. Plus, we’ve introduced bidirectional arrows and cool dashed arrows for those extra special connections.
These updates give you more freedom, creativity, and customization options for your mind maps.
And you can do things like this:
