In building a new main pc, including a new widescreen monitor, I’m finding that the hardware can possibly influence the software, particularly Storyspace.

In looking at Paths in widescreen, wider and larger than the laptop allowed, I see that it is possible to rearrange things to follow a horizontal pattern rather than a vertical one.  Now this is in part determined by the hierarchy, but too, by the level at which the text boxes are arranged and linked in Map View, or setting it up in Chart View. 

The colors of Storyspace also look a bit different on the new screen.  Grey is taupe and the colored titles are more intense.  Okay, so maybe that means that I’ve got to adjust the graphic options on the monitor.

The best thing?  I don’t have to travel so far down the hall in the dark at 3:00 a.m. when an idea hits.
