Outline Mode in Page View

Outline lines can be shown or hidden in Page View. They will only export in a PDF with notes if they are shown at the time of the export. This does not affect what is seen on cards. 

  1. Select Options from the menu just above the main editing area
  2. Check or uncheck the box for Show Outline


Outline Mode in Cards Widget & Mode and Mind Map

Outline lines are hidden by default. Using Outline Mode will filter the card's content to just the Scene Heading (slugline) and the Outline line. This does not affect what is seen in Page view.

  1. Select Options from the menu just above the main editing area
  2. Check or uncheck the box for Use outline mode
    1. On the cards, you will only see Scene Headings (sluglines) and Outline lines.
