Does the app support Split View and multiple windows on iPad?

Yes, of course. You can easily work in multitasking with Story Planner on your iPad.

Open two windows of Story Planner with Split View


You can easily open two windows of Story Planner at the same time. Just open Story Planner and swipe your finger from right to left over the item you want to open with split view. It can be a project, a character record, a plot, a scene ... This will show you the Swipe menu:

The item will be opened to the right of the screen in split view:




Open multiple windows of Story Planner


You can also work with multiple Story Planner windows at the same time. Go to the desktop on your iPad and press and hold on the Story Planner icon. A menu will be displayed:



Tap 'Show all windows' to see all Story Planner windows that are opened. You can also create new windows from there, by taping the + icon at the upper right:


To switch between Story Planner windows, you can return to this option or slide your four fingers horizontally on the screen to move from one view to another. Note that this will also make you switch between Story Planner and other apps if you have more apps open.


Use Story Planner and other apps at the same time


You can also work with Story Planner and other apps at the same time with Split View and Slide Over. Just open Story Planner and swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Dock.

Story Planner will be shown in one half and the other app in the other half, as you can see in the example with Story Planner and Scrivener at the same time:


You can adjust the width of the Split View by keeping your finger on the grey divider in the center of the screen and sliding it to the left or right:
